Colin Campbell Now A Man On Vacation

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail,

Thirteen years and $15.3-million (all currency U.S.) in fines and forfeited salary (he kept track) after Colin Campbell became the NHL’s sheriff, he is leaving that part of his job with no regrets.

“No, none at all,” Campbell, 58, said shortly before the Stanley Cup final ended. “It takes stamina and energy to do this and it wears away after 13 years. Sometimes the tank gets empty and you have to sit back and take a run at something else.”

Regrets are for the critics and there is no shortage of them where Campbell is concerned. Most of them are media people or fans of teams whose players were sidelined by a Campbell decision before he gave up the duties of issuing supplementary discipline for incidents on the ice.

Their biggest complaint is a lack of consistency in Campbell’s decisions.
