Games are published on Tuesdays for the next Saturday & week after. That means you must get your availability done by Tuesday. Please keep your availability updated. I know it can be tough...I have to do it myself for my refereeing. You have 3 days to accept games and those games will autodecline after 3 days and I'll assign them to someone else.
