Not forgetting of course that Roster Assign was brought in to alleviate the Force Draft epidemic that was so prevalent that summer, and to which so many members were vocal about at the time. At least now we get some advanced notice of being screwed over and the opportunity to swap work/life around a bit in advance, rather than being met at the end of one trip and being told "by the way, see the weekend plans you had with the family tomorrow? Sorry, but now you're off to Abuja".

I know which I'd prefer.
