If you're involved in a dangerous sport, be it downhill ski racing, hockey, or rock-climbing, you don't tend to want to dwell on the danger per se, much less the pain and convalescence that follow. To perform at your best, and with confidence, you prefer to visualize yourself performing with mastery. I totally understand therefore if Soupy prefers not to propagate and celebrate the image of himself, grimacing, broken, and in agony. Of course fans can be inspired by such an image, but the athlete himself will not be able to draw the same inspiration from it.

So fans should just back off. Campbell sacrificed enough for us in hanging out for those 45 odd seconds to kill the penalty; he paid his dues for god's sakes, so if he says he prefers not to sign the photo, let him be.
