• Who did Colin Campbell call “a little fake artist”?

    by Tyler Dellow • November 14, 2010 • Uncategorized • 48 Comments

    As I’ve mentioned before, I troll CanLII for interesting cases involving the NHL. It’s generally lousy stuff – a lot of bad divorces – but every so often you find something awesome. Like Dean Warren’s labour relations case with the league after it fired him as a referee. The gist of the case was this:

    Mr. Warren alleges he was a well known advocate for officials’ rights because over the course of his career he assisted NHL officials whose employment was terminated by the League. He alleges that when in 2006 he was elected to the executive board of the National Hockey League Officials Association (the “OA” or “NHLOA”), the League viewed his election as a threat to its plan, as sanctioned by recent amendments to the collective agreement, to retire a number of senior officials through what was called “succession planning” and the League terminated his employment as a result.

    The League denies the applicant’s allegations. It asserts the applicant was a mediocre referee whose employment was terminated for reasons unrelated to any work he did on behalf of other officials. Moreover, the League argues that it had the collective agreement right to ask senior officials to retire through succession planning, a right which had recently been negotiated into the collective agreement between the League and the OA, and Mr. Warren could not have been any threat to that process. As a result it says, Mr. Warren’s claims about the League’s motives do not even make sense.

    BORING. The sexy stuff lies in the alternate chair having pulled back the curtain ever so slightly on operations in the building housing Colin Campbell’s Wheel of Justice. There are a bunch of fun emails in the decision that let us see just how Colin Campbell and Stephen Walkom (fellow Laurentian University graduate!) go about doing things.

    There are some fun findings by the alternate chair too. Like this: “…In my view, Mr. Walkom’s testimony in this case was influenced by his desire to be vindicated in his decision to release Mr. Warren.” That’s a polite way of saying that the alternate chair was not completely convinced.

    There are many NHL referees who gave evidence. Kerry Fraser is described as “…clearly angry about his treatment by the League. He also appears to hold animosity to Mr. Walkom because Mr. Walkom released Mr. Fraser’s son-in-law, a decision he also did not agree with.”

    Anyway, let’s look at the emails. There’s been an attempt made to wipe the dates so that we don’t know which games are being discussed – It has not been done well enough.

    Stephen Walkom to Colin Campbell, Mike Murphy 10/#/2006 12:32 PM

    Just a few updates: spoke with [general manager] from [club] and general manager from [another club]. some concerns, different guys and different situations………. Spoke with Warren about the hit in [city] he felt he left his feet….told him all guys leave their feet but this player glided and took care in hitting the player legally…he understood and further was instructed to see the whole play and that players look for calls which is what happened on this play….in regard to [player] both officials have been spoken with and that open ice hits are generally allowed on one on one battles and for him to have two over called is the exception and not good….

    Reasonable. Seems like Walkom is working to manage the situation. What happens when Warren is assigned to work another game in the same city though?

    Are you trying to f____ with my head? Sending this guy back into …..after the …..call and others? Have you talked to him yet and have you seen the penalty he called on [player]? Should I call him? Talk to [another referee] he will tell you the horseshit game Warren had and how hard it was to work with him. This guy is in serious trouble. He will be in trouble as soon as [coach or general manager] sees him tonight…they will think you are shoving it up their ass. Maybe you should call [general manager] as a pre-emptive strike but talk to Warren first.

    Stephen Walkom to: Colin Campbell 10/#/2006 01:26 PM

    Spoke with [general manager] and spoke with dean ….

    Dean Warren’s schedule in October of 2006:

    Boston at St. Louis Oct. 12
    Rangers at Buffalo Oct. 14
    Pittsburgh at Islanders Oct. 19
    Florida at Atlanta OCt. 21
    Toronto at Montreal Oct. 28

    …Mr. Campbell emailed a clip of a play in a game worked by Mr. Warren [where, presumably, Mr. Campbell finds Mr. Warren missed a call] and the following occurred:

    In mid-February Mr. Campbell sent Mr. Walkom a clip and said:

    Can we use this shit [the emailed clip] to remove him or is there an HR excuse.

    A couple weeks later Mike Murphy or Mr. Walkom (it was not clear which) wrote to Mr. Campbell (and Mr. Walkom) that Mr. Warren had “missed high stick on [player] with 130 left in the game…..hard for a Ref to see….[general manager] will be whining’. Mr. Campbell replied:

    A bend in the road is a dead end if you round the corner and Dean Warren is standing there. Your answer re: his high stick calls and the score of the game were horse shit. The 3rd call on [player] was while they were down 5 on 4 and on a def zone face off vs that little fake artist [player] I had him in [city] biggest faker going. And Warren fell for it when he grabbed his face on a face off. Your supposed to see the act, not call the embellishing act. Dean Warren has to go with [referee] There must be a way to get rid of this guy. Is there a way we can tract (sic) and total minors called by referees this year. We could then get the minors they call per game. … or with 2 [referees on the ice] it is impossible? Warren and [referee] out of [club’s] games. Give them to [referees].

    that’s funny yet not funny….I think we have that data but it may work in his favour….that’s why I’m against data and more about IT….he doesn’t have it, never had it, and is average at best, probably never get it,

    02/#/2007 09:21 AM

    I know Murph and Kinger like [player] as a player but my view of him is this exactly…he puts his whining ahead of the game. I don’t think this is a regular occurrence (…..getting screwed) and …..exploded ………over the disallowed goal. He may be uncontrollable by ………….and……………..as I think his frustration level has hit a high point. He hates officials as well. He is still pissed off at [referee] for a call he missed in the playoffs years ago as I remember him bugging Murph about it. Let’s give him Warren and [referee] than (sic) he will really have something to whine about.

    OK – this one I think we can nail down. We know that Campbell is upset about a situation involving a team that was already down to 5 v 4, on a defensive zone faceoff against a “little fake artist” who Campbell had (presumably in New York when he coached the Rangers. We also know that it was that player’s third penalty of the night. We can assume, from the chair’s description of this as being a few weeks after some earlier February emails, that it was in late February.

    As it so happens, there is a game featuring players that meet this description. On February 24, 2007, Dean Warren reffed a game between the Bruins and the Panthers. At 13:29 of the second, Alexei Semenov was called for high sticking. Marc Savard, who played for Colin Campbell when he coached the Rangers, came out over the boards. He glided towards the dot where he faced off with Panthers penalty killer…Gregory Campbell. The puck was dropped and Campbell was called for high sticking. His third penalty of the game.

    This is the only game from February, 2007 that meets the description.

    I mentioned the Savard thing on Twitter and @Texas_Gal, a Boston lawyer (I think Twitter is made up entirely of journalists, bloggers and lawyers) points out that Matt Cooke wasn’t suspended for concussing Marc Savard last year. Did Campbell’s apparent loathing of Savard play into it? Who knows. In fairness to the NHL, it’s amended the rules with respect to hits to the head since then. This, though, is one reason that you don’t want people judging cases in which they have personal relationships with parties; if nothing else, the optics are terrible.

    In March the criticism continued after Mr. Walkom distributed an email to referees and management which discussed issues about high stick calls. Mr. Campbell replied:

    Good point…he [Warren] phoned me and asked how he was doing….told him he’s been inconsistent and can’t skate but his effort is there….

    There are a couple of games that this could be. Can’t be nailed down.

    In May there was an email exchange where in the end another sarcastic reference to Mr. Warren was made in the context of a game which Mr. Warren did not officiate:

    If Colin Campbell is ever a GM, I will have to make a note to pay attention to who gets assigned to do his team’s games. Hilariously, while researching this post, I learned that he turned down a five year $7.5MM deal with the Flyers in 2006 because he wanted the Leafs job. Some day…

    Meanwhile, there were further emails between Mr. Walkom and Mr. Campbell which touched on Mr. Warren. The following exchanged occurred in relation to another referee. It suggests that at this time the League knew that Mr. Warren was likely to be released.

    Colin Campbell to Stephen Walkom

    Did you find out anything? It was [another referee] that made the call. Keep Warren and gas this shithead. 90 seconds left and he calls a weak penalty…tripping. Makes me sick. If I was at the game I would have had to fine me.

    So we know that this game took place in November of 2007. I went through and looked for November 2007 games in which a penalty was called late in a 2-1 game and the team that went on the power play scored and won in overtime. I found this Florida-Atlanta game, which looks to be the only one that meets the description. After a Panther was penalized late, the Thrashers won it up and tied it in overtime. The player who was penalized? None other than Gregory Campbell. Brian Pochmara and Don VanMassenhoven were the referees in that game and both are, as far as I can tell, still NHL referees.

    (Update: As @KenTalent5000 points out, Campbell was apparently emailing Walkom to complain about a call that he heard on the radio which the announcers didn’t like. I wonder if he ever listened to Rod Phillips call a game and, if so, what Walkom’s inbox looked like at the end of the night.)

    The morals of this little tale? There are many. Never put anything into an email that you wouldn’t be fine with seeing in print on the front page of a national newspaper. If you’re a Bruins fan, you’re now forever justified in bitching that every call went against you because Colin Campbell hates Marc Savard. If you want your team to be treated favourably, acquire Greg Campbell, because Colin Campbell will watch all your games and bitch about bad calls. Also, it would appear that if you’re a GM and you’re not constantly filling Campbell’s ear in an attempt to get the refs you like you like, you aren’t doing your job.

    Oh and one more – if you suspect that the NHL is run by bozos (in fairness to Walkom, I don’t think he comes off poorly in the emails, although he wasn’t found to be a particularly credible witness), Campbell’s emails aren’t going to do a lot to convince you otherwise. Funny stuff.

      I’d already read some of these when they were reported during Dean Warren’s OLRB hearing and also did the boxscore scouring to see which games were being discussed :-)

      what I don’t know is what was the resolution of the OLRB hearing — other than Dean Warren is still not an NHL Referee? they adjourned for a while and the newspapers didn’t pick it up when they reconvened…

      does anyone know what happened?

      To be a fly on the wall in the Bruins’ locker room tomorrow–or whenever Savard’s healthy enough to skate with the rest of the team (by which I mean Gregory Campbell)!

      You know, I feel bad for the guy. It’s not his fault that his father’s behavior looks so unprofessional. But I don’t see how an over-invested parent can participate in running the league.

      According to the case on CanLII, the ruling of the case went in favor of the NHL as they could not find any evidence that his release was a result of some kind of discrimination as opposed to sub-standard officiating.

    20. Archi
      November 15, 2010 at

      My favourite part of this is the discovery that Colin Campbell sometimes just ends emails with an all caps FUCK.

    21. November 15, 2010 at

      It looks like there’s another one. The first emails you posted regarding the incident in October have more details… while the dates have been hashed out, the correspondence is said in the ruling to have taken place on October 23: “The first contact which occurred after Mr. Warren’s election to the OA executive was on October 23, 2006.”

      This is big, because the email from Campbell says, “This guy is in serious trouble. He will be in trouble as soon as [coach or general manager] sees him tonight…they will think you are shoving it up their ass.” That means it’s referring to a game THAT NIGHT in which Dean Warren officiated. That would be this one, a game taking place in Florida. You omitted it in your schedule for Dean Warren.

      This is pretty sexy because of this boxscore of the previous game, two days previously, between Atlanta and Florida.

      As far as the timeline goes, we know the game that Campbell is referring to is the Oct. 23rd game, which means we know he’s probably upset about a penalty in the previous game.

      While Walkom’s email says it’s a “few updates,” indicating it’s not all on the same subject, the part mentioning Warren states: “Spoke with Warren about the hit in [city] he felt he left his feet….told him all guys leave their feet but this player glided and took care in hitting the player legally…he understood and further was instructed to see the whole play and that players look for calls which is what happened on this play”

      Because he “felt he left his feet,” the call was clearly one in which leaving one’s feet would be a factor, yes? Thus, it’s likely a boarding or roughing call. There were two such calls in the Oct. 21 game. One was a boarding call on Martin Gelinas.

      The other was a roughing call on Gregory Campbell.

      The only way I can think of to confirm this would be to find old video of the game. While what we have isn’t definitive evidence, the call Campbell was upset about definitely happened during the Oct. 21st game between the Panthers and Thrashers, which leaves 14 possibilities. It was definitely one in which leaving your feet would be a factor. That likely only leaves two: the call on Gelinas and the call on Gregory Campbell.

    22. Precious
      November 15, 2010 at

      Mr. Warren could not have been any threat to that process

      Perhaps not much of a threat to the outcome, but he could certainly have stirred up the hornet’s nest and perhaps incited another labour relations case such as this one, for Tyler to write up at a future date. Threat to precious optics? Definitely.

      This plus the environment where the grudge factor runs pretty high suggest Mr Warren’s accusation was credible. I think he lost his case on burden of proof, especially if he was not actually good at his job.

      Appears to be a smoking gun here that he was slow to process political ramifications in the heat of the moment, which by inference was a vital but informal component of his job description.

      Not much future in the referee business if you can’t spot a halo from ten feet during a stoppage in play.

    23. November 15, 2010 at

      The real pity is that the NHL has this NHL Vault thing which lets you watch archives of games… up to the beginning of the 2007 – 08 season. None of the games involved in these e-mails seem to be involved, so we can’t see for ourselves how ticky-tack the penalties were.

    24. November 15, 2010 at

      Great work and your find is, well, disturbing. I hope it becomes a major thing in the hockey media. Congrats!

    25. November 15, 2010 at

      The ramifications for the League if the MSM actually picks this up could be astronomical, especially with all the attention on supplementary discipline over the last couple years. As you said, the optics don’t look good.

    33. Jon K
      November 15, 2010 at

      The only thing I really learned from this is that Colin Campbell is an idiot and if you are an NHL referee who makes calls against his son your employment is in jeopardy. Then again, those are more confirmations than newly learned items.

      However, from the email conversations there doesn’t appear to be any interference with the actual calling of the games. The inference is available, but it’s not a strong one on the evidence available. If only we could see all the emails… The strongest inference we can draw is merely that Campbell is constantly interfering with the Director of Officiating’s job, trying to impose his judgment in place of theirs. Whether or not he’s successful isn’t exactly clear.

      Regarding Marc Savard: Colin Campbell’s dislike for him is not unfounded. He was rated as one of the most hated players in NHL by fellow players in infamous THN player’s poll a few years back.

      Results for posterity:
      1) Sean Avery (168) 66.4% 2) Jordin Tootoo (14) 5.5% 3) Darcy Tucker (9) 3.5% 4) Jarkko Ruutu (8) 3.1% 5) Marc Savard (7) 2.7% 6) Chris Neil (6) 2.3% 7) Sidney Crosby (5) 1.9%

      From what I’ve heard, Savard is always in the referees’ ears and whining, which seems to fit what Campbell says.

      In any case, interesting stuff nonetheless and another bullet in the case for Campbell getting his ass fired (or hired as the TML’s GM).

      What are some of you guys, like 9 years old? How are some of you so taken back with there being favoritism in the NHL? You know its run by humans and not robots right? Why would you hold them up like some kind of religious institution? Not defending it, but wake up; the world is corrupt and always will be.

      also, your parents had sex.

      And will anything happen to the corrupt bastard Campbell? No. It’s the NHL. Bettman has no morals/ethics and certainly will not police those of his cronies and toadies and lieutenants.

      I am disgusted w the favoritism and backdoor underhandedness of the presidents,vice-presidents and unfairness of the referees not being corrected or maybe being ordered from these top people of the NHL. lets get some class back to the game and take the political nepotism acts out of this national sport. Sportsmanship and integrity must be upheld not all these petty games making decisions which in the end are much to blame for the explosive behavior in Vancouver, B.C. after the 7th game because people are not blind and your organization depends on the fans to support this sport as well as your high salaries in those top offices which should be held with respect, honesty, integrity and class. Too much was called on Vancouver while the Bruins were allowed to act as they please no matter how illegal or disruptive their plays or acts were during the games or after the game ends. Yes Bruins had a good goaltender but one who made many dirty plays during the games hitting players in the face or what have u and getting away with it well I guess little Gregory Campbell had a lot of support for his home boys from his big daddy Colin Campbell who fixed his sons and his own little minds and hearts. Take back the game and sportsmanship stop all this petty favoritism from the NHL office and protect the integrity of the game.
