I was curious about the views of other referees on this forum regarding their approach to accepting/turning back assignments. What leads to my question is this: I am already working my state's amateur state cup this weekend. I was assigned (by assignor #1) four games (two on Saturday and two on Sunday), and I accepted them all. Last night, I was assigned (by assignor #2) a W-League line that conflicted with the second of my Sunday games. (No doubt my fault for not updating my availability on ussoccer.gameofficials.net after accepting the state cup games, although I have received assignments on ussoccer.gameofficials.net in the past even when I had made myself unavailable). I declined the W-League game. That was the right thing to do, in my opinion, because I had already committed to working for assignor #1, even though the W-League assignment might take precedence in the eyes of some people given that it is a USL game rather than an amateur match. Also, I feel much less bad declining a game I haven't yet accepted than turning back a game I already accepted. I'm curious how people deal with these types of situations. Do other states have formal rules regarding priority of assignments? Would you all have accepted the W-Leauge game and then turned back one or both of the Sunday amateur matches? Do you all have your own informal rules for these situations? How do you manage working for multiple assignors without causing them undue inconvenience (apart from managing your availability better than I did on this occasion)? Discuss. EDIT: I originally wrote WPSL instead of W-League.
