He is one of the most humble, most generous men who ever lived and has never refused to sign anything when he knows it is for a kid or charity. My nephew has the original poster of that goal, which formerly hung over my brother's bed when we were small, signed by Bobby Orr.
I don't doubt a word you say, and I know first hand that he's as humble and generous as any man alive.

I never said he refused to sign it. I simply said he doesn't like to sign it, if given the choice.

I also said it's the one most people want signed, so yes, he has signed a lot of them.

He signed a pic for my girlfriend to give to me. It's a pic of him in the corner with Espo in the background. He told her he prefers to sign those type of pics, where he's not looking like the star.

Goes back to the humble thing, which is what I think this discussion is about with Campbell. It think it's honest humility.
