Not sure how long this link will hold up with the traffic, but this guy does pretty good detective work on what games Campbell is bitching about.
Here's a snippet of one of Colin's emails:

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 s***. 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].
After some research, Marc Savard fits the description of the "little faker" who had played for Campbell earlier in his career. And the game matches one where there was a high sticking penalty on a faceoff called against... wait for it... Gregory Campbell, Colin's son. It was his third penalty of the game.
Implications aside, I can't believe he communicates and conducts himself like this, even in email. He sounds like a hothead with a lot of grudges. Not good for the head disciplinarian of the league.
Here's the link to the court case. Just scroll down to the emails.
Curious to see if this gets picked up anywhere. As the blogger points out, if you want a careful watch on the officiating of your team's games, the simple solution is to sign Greg Campbell.
