    It's not a question of contracts, but rather good sportsmanship. If you won as white and the opponent would like a game as white, it's considered the polite thing to do to give them a turn. However by the same token, if you win as black, it's not a big deal if you decline to play as white. Technically it's really not a big deal either way since you're not forced to play a rematch, but you have to accept that some people do care about sportsmanship, and that you may end up on a few no-play lists.

    --- Thanks for the post FirebrandX. As you mentioned each player has the choice of staying for a re-match or not. If on the other hand someone wants to say that not giving a re-match is rather rude well that is a very different question to be sure.
