The Hamilton Alerts were suspended by the ORFU on November 23 for flaunting the authority of the Union. The Toronto Rowing and Athletic Club had protested a penalty call which had resulted in a victory for the Alerts. The ORFU ordered the game be re-played on the 23rd, but the Alerts refused to field a full team. The Alerts lost to Toronto 39–7 while the main squad lost a regularly scheduled match in Hamilton to the Tigers 12–8. The Alerts went on to defeat the Toronto Argonauts 11–4 in the Grey Cup game. Many of the players joined the Tigers of IRFU the following season.
