Chainsaw sharpening

I have a running bet with my boss at the small engine shop that I work at reference to chainsaw sharpening. He says that if a chain saw chain's cutter teeth angle is set at the 32-35 degree angle and the cutter teeth are sharp and the drag teeth are filed down correctly but the cutter teeth are filed different sizes, the chain will cut straight and not wear out one side of the groove of a bar. Now I've e-mailed about everyone of the major chainsaw manufacturers and everyone of them said that the cutter teeth has to be the same size or the chain will start to cut crooked in the middle of a log. I just wanted to get everyone of your opinions on this matter. Any reply would be appreciated.
