Tigers broadcasters who had physical altercation won't return in 2019

Rod Allen and Mario Impemba have reportedly lost their jobs calling Tigers games after an alleged attack over a chair at work. More

The late-season falling out was reportedly the result of a disagreement over a chair in the broadcast booth.

Longtime Fox Sports Detroit broadcasters Rod Allen and Mario Impemba will not return to the booth next season after a disagreement turned physical on September 4, the Detroit Free Press reported, citing sources.

Impemba and Allen spent almost 17 seasons together as the team's main television team.

Allen's agent denied that his client choked Impemba, according to Lynn Henning and Tony Paul of the Detroit News.

Impemba has been the play-by-play voice of the Tigers since 2002 and Allen has done color commentary since 2003. Neither have spoken publicly about the incident, which served as a sour ending to almost 17 seasons together in the broadcast booth. The Free Press did not report potential successors, but did note that Detroit sports media veteran Matt Shepard and former Tigers player and coach Kirk Gibson finished the season in the booth. But if it is the end for Mario and Rod, this ends a almost 17 year association for the two with FSD.
