Tigers not renewing broadcasters' contract after fight

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

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the Detroit Tigers are moving forward without the services of long-time TV broadcasters Mario Impemba and Rod Allen.

As expected, the Detroit Tigers will have a new television broadcast team next season.

The Tigers have decided not to renew the contracts of their broadcasters after an altercation that saw them suspended for most of the final month of the season. The altercation reportedly took place over a chair.

Fox Sports Detroit and the Tigers have not commented on the departure of Impemba and Allen.

The letter said the detective told the witness she had no reason to cooperate with prosecutors and "less is more". His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said in court that he believes Ms Evans lied to the grand jury about what happened.

The issues started before a late-season game and continued afterward, with Allen allegedly pursuing and choking Impemba.

Shepard, a mainstay in the Detroit sports media scene for almost 30 years, won the Detroit Sports Broadcasters Association's Ty Tyson Award for excellence in sports broadcasting this year.

After Impemba and Allen were suspended after the September 4th game, Matt Shepherd and Kirk Gibson announced the majority of the games for the remainder of the season.

Neither has spoken publicly since the alleged incident.
