but hold on now the Bison are now appealing...stay tuned
So that's what is happening. I would imagine the Bison argument would go like this:

- The officials made an error in not blowing play dead right away.

- The officials made an error when not penalizing Alberta for a penalty right away.

- If everything was done right, you end up right where the game ended up - with Alberta getting a penalty and Manitoba a game-winning goal.

In any event, the rankings do not change since they are based on results, not board-room decisions and deemed forfeitures.
