Canadians charged with vandalizing U.S. flag - Yahoo! Canada News

I don't agree with what they did, but I think replacing the flag with one of equal or more value and an apology would be sufficient. They are just young men who made a judgement mistake in their exuberance over Canada winning the gold medal in hockey at the Olympics.

U.S. women's hockey team exonerated in flag dispute
Posted: Monday February 25, 2002 10:09 PM


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Members of the U.S. women's hockey team did not desecrate a Canadian flag at the Salt Lake City Olympics, American and Canadian hockey officials said Monday after a joint investigation.

Canada beat the United States 3-2 for the women's hockey gold medal on Feb. 21. After the game, Canadian players said they were angered that American players stomped on a flag in their locker room.

U.S players repeatedly and vehemently denied the rumor.

On Monday, USA Hockey, based in Colorado Springs, and the Canadian Hockey Association issued a joint statement saying U.S. players had committed no "acts of disrespect" against the flag.

"This is a case of false information being circulated by an unidentified third party," USA Hockey Executive Director Doug Palazzari said. "There is no question there is a healthy rivalry between the two teams, but there is also great mutual respect."

Canadian Hockey Association President Bob Nicholson said a joint investigation showed the rumor was false.

"We congratulate the U.S. team on a tremendous season and look forward to continuing our great relationship with USA Hockey," Nicholson said.
