VIDEO OF THE DAY: The Collapse in Calgary

The Saskatchewan Roughriders snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Here’s the ending to the 97th Grey Cup with Chris Cuthbert and Glen Suitor on the call.

The sound of near silence from the Riders fans, and tears of joy from the very few Alouettes fans.

If you’re wondering why Montreal was allowed to kick with no time left the first time around, it’s because the CFL has different rules regarding the clock hitting triple zeros. The quarter ends when a final play is run and not when time expires.

Example: If you have a play end with :02 left you can’t let the clock run out. Instead another play is run as an untimed down. However, if you run a play with :09 left and time expires at the end of the play, then the quarter is complete.
