Synopsis The Calgary Stampeders had an undefeated season, winning all 12 regular season games, beating Saskatchewan in the West Final (though the Riders did tie them in one game) and then winning the Grey Cup against Ottawa. The 1948 Grey Cup was famous for two things. First it was the year that the Calgary Stampeder fans took horses East to Toronto and the Royal York hotel. That game was credited into turning the Grey Cup into a truly national party. In the game itself, the Stampeders won the game largely thanks to an infamous sleeper path from quarterback Keith Spaith to Norm Hill. The play led to the banning of the sleeper play.
