On the other side of players on the field, in 2009 the Saskatchewan Roughriders lost the national CFL championship, the Grey Cup, by having one too many men on the field.

The Riders were leading the Montreal Alouettes, 27-25. The Als had the ball and tried a field goal. The ball went wide and hit the goal post. The clock was 0:00! Riders win!

Then the horrible words from the announcers: "Oh-oh, there's a flag on the field." The ref comes out and puts his hands on his cap: too many players on the field. Then the announcement: "Saskatchewan".

The game can't end on a penalty. The Als move five yards closer, re-do the kick And it's good.
