An appeal by Carlton that the match be declared a draw was dismissed by a sub#committee of the association on Friday 19 June 1896. Last quarter went for 30 minutes rather than 25 and collingwood kicked the winning goal during that period. If the appeal was successful, Collingwood may not have got the points to equal South Melbourne and have the playoff for the premiership
