    Getting Gregory Campbell so this dick head has no say over our suspensions may be PCs best move.

    Re: Colin Campbell Denies Bias

    The league keeps quiet about it for most of the week, then good ol' Colie goes on a media tour at the end of the week.  He has been giving interviews left and right since last night.  He also gave a telephone interview with NHL Live! this afternoon.  He sounded like he had been coached extensively by an attorney.  Nowhere in his interview did he express remorse for anything other than getting caught.  The only change in behavior that he thinks he needs to make is in the handling of his email. 

    One of the things that pisses me off the most about this whole affair is how the mainstream media is handling it.  It is like they have all been issued talking points from the league in how to address it.  Praising Campbell up and down for his impartialality when they bother to address it at all.  Nobody wants to lose their place at the table.  I have to give him credit, KPD pressed the issue a bit.  He was on NHL Power Play on Tuesday, calling for Campbell to be dismissed and replaced with a three-person committee to eliminate the possibility of individual bias.

    I agree, but at the same time, the emails raise the possibility that Campbell will still have a say in matters involving the Bruins, although they may go in the Bruins' favor now.  Wouldn't that be a nice change of pace?

    If he was tampering with games by telling Walkom to not use certain refs against the Panthers, what is to stop him from trying to influence Murphy on suspensions?

    I wonder often if the people who post here are really hockey fans or just Bruin fans.

    Regardless, it's great to see the mainstream sports media keeping the heat on Campbell because the NHL's old boy club will just keep denying that a problem exists.


    For the good of the game, Colin Campbell must go.

    Does anyone else think if this was the NHL, NFL or NBA that the fans/media would be up in arms and making this a much bigger deal? Because its the NHL, well, it seems like the media in general are ready to let this slide away.

    Re: Colin Campbell Denies Bias

    Am I reading one of the posts here wrong or did one of these posters just say that acquiring Gregory Campbell was a good move so that the Bruins get treated differently than the 29 other teams in the League ?

    Rmiller, you are close on this. Acquiring Greg Campbell was a good move so that the Bruins get treated the SAME as the 29 other teams in the League.

    All speculation since obviously PC will never admit to this, but if it is true, its a good move. We have been taking it up the azz from Colon on several occasions. And he nows it, did you hear that studdering stammering bag of lies and even saying he does not owe Marc an apology. If I was Savy, I would tell him exactly what he can do with the "eventual" explanation.

    Colon is a bias bag fecal matter and should be canned.

    Bruins should put his son on waivers to get back at him.

    Just kidding...

    But in all seriousness if he felt so strong, why did he wait until the NHL brass defended him before he came out with all his bravado?  Even he was expecting to get more heat than he has from the NHL.

    Disgraceful.

    Campbell should be canned by the League.

    But the Bruins likely acquired Campbell's kid to get special treatment -- not the same treatment as the other 29 teams...

    As I said earlier, enjoy the tainted and tarnished Cup when it finally arrives to the Beantown...

    I'll not be watching as long as Campbell and Bettman remain...

    Colon used the fact that Dean Warren's wrongful termination case was dismissed as evidence that he is far and impartial, when in fact, Warren may very well have won his case if not for the then unknown parts of the emails that were redacted.  Once again, Campbell is pointing out a wrong decision as precedent. 

    The fact that the league has circled the wagons in Campbells defense is not surprising.  The extent of the mainstream media's assistance in the effort is.

    It's bothered me that the NHL would have a guy like Colin Campbell as league discipinarian simply because of his background.  A former player, former coach - who has been fired, wouldn't there be an issue with him having a vendetta against the gm who fired him, against other players he might have had issues with, against other teams that he might have had issues with?  And shouldn't having your son in the league exclude you from the post?  After all, it's overwhelmingly likely that your son has had a scrape with a another player, another team or an official and it would get back to you over Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas or something.

    Shouldn't the job of league disciplinarian go to someone who would be *LESS LIKELY* to have an ax to grind?  Everyone has prejudices whether they realize it or not, but you just want to insure a person who's going to be judging others in that position will have the leastnumber of prejudices as possible.

    I would think a very well respected former ref like Andy Von Hellemond would be the right kind of guy for the job.  Or some other retired ref.  Or somebody who has hockey knowledge, but not a pro that's a lawyer or a judge or something.

    Well said.  The simple fact that the NHL employs and supports someone in a position that must have impartiality as its mandate yet is clearly anything but is stunning in light of recent revelations. 

    Any future punishments of a questionable variety this man metes out will always have a cloud of suspicion hanging over them.  Not a good look for a league that hopes to make inroads in the consciousness of minds primarily locked into the NFL, NBA and MLB.  Count me among those surprised this story is not a bigger deal.

    The quote, "...gas this ****head," that Campbell employs in one of those e-mail's that were made public suggests that Campbell has also in the past dismissed League officials who made calls against his son's team...

    One has to wonder if the Bruins' management were aware of these e-mails in advance of the acquisition of Campbell's son ?

    It's very odd how many Bruin fans' main concern is that Campbell called Savard a little "faker" (which he mostly has been throughout his hockey career) in those e-mails, but completely miss the fact that the real issue here for hockey fans is that Campbell seemingly tried to influence officials on how to officiate his own son's team which calls his impartiality into question...

    That's why I think that most of you are simply Bruin fans -- not hockey fans...
