I'm sure the salmon arm silverbacks felt they got away with alot. The refereeing was not great. Blatant actions by the silver backs watch by the ref's where overlooked. At times I questioned what game the ref's where watching. Too bad because it can and does effect what could have been a better game for the VIPERS.
