I remember that game. Sask had a 2 score lead late and David Archer engineered 2 scoring drives after the 3 minute warning.
The real crappy part of it was that David Archer had been a free agent that spring (after San Antonio was folded) and Sask offered him something like 150-200k but Horne Chen threw 750k at him and got him. Then a month or so into the season Chen gave him a 50% pay cut to 375. Then later in the year cut his pay again down to about what Sask had offered and I'm not sure if Archer was even paid that.
So Sask offered what they could afford, Ottawa threw money that they didn't have at him. Ottawa beat Sask with Archer and then never paid him anyways. That was about as bush league as it gets and that's why this league needs a salary cap.
