In early September, news broke that there had been a physical altercation between then Detroit Tigers’ broadcasters Mario Impemba and Rod Allen.
Following the incident, both Impemba and Allen were suspended for the remainder of the 2018 season.
Now, according to Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press, neither Impemba nor Allen will be calling Tigers games in the future as both have been relieved of their duties at Fox Sports Detroit.
From Detroit Free Press:
“As expected, the Detroit Tigers will have a new television broadcast team next season.
After a late-season falling out escalated to a physical altercation on Sept. 4, longtime Fox Sports Detroit broadcasters Rod Allen and Mario Impemba will not return next season, according to multiple persons with knowledge of the situation.”
There has not yet been an announcement as to who will replace Impemba and Allen in the booth.
Detroit Lions game-by-game predictions for the remainder of season
Well, our Detroit Lions are doing it to us again! After beating the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday, the Lions are now 2-3 and in striking distance in the NFC North. In fact, there are just four teams in the entire NFC that have more wins than Detroit. (Yes, we know there are 10 teams actually ahead of the Lions in the NFC standings)
Anyways, as fans, we now have a little bit of hope. The Lions have proven they can beat solid teams and if they can just get their crap together, they could make a run at the NFL Playoffs. The question is, will they get their crap together or will they break our hearts yet again?
Let’s take a look at my game-by-game predictions for the remainder of the season.
WEEK 6 – BYE WEEK
(W) WEEK 7 – @ Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins may be 3-2, but they are not a good football team. Even though this game is on the road, the Lions will be well-rested and will find a way to win to move to 3-3 on the season.
Lions 26 Dolphins 23
