If you are a die-hard sports fan, you probably love a good jersey, even if it is one your favorite team will never actually wear in a game.

Mitchell and Ness has released their line of ‘Split Home & Away Legacy’ jerseys and they are pretty slick.

The Detroit Lions version features the 1996 Barry Sanders home and away jersey.

Check it out.

The Lowdown: Inside Mario Impemba and Rod Allen’s 17-year feud

Mario Impemba and Rod Allen are no longer at the broadcasting helm of Detroit Tigers games.  Emotionally charged news stories have a way of sorting themselves out over time and the situation between these two broadcasters is no different.

The breaking point between Mario and Rod was reached following a Tuesday night game in early September. Numerous reports immediately described both Mario and Rod as individuals and as a collective unit. Time allows for emotions and sensationalism to subside, paving the way for a rational explanation and subsequent discussion.

Allowing for fair treatment of both parties, it should be stated that they both individually cared about the Detroit Tigers and did a fine job of presenting a unified front on camera for the better part of two decades.  Unfortunately, they both also had a hand in things falling apart off camera.

In a piece published this morning by Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press, Mario and Rod’s toxic relationship is examined under a microscope.

Per numerous anonymous sources within the organization who spoke to Fenech, the breaking point was indeed an on-set chair. Rod Allen deals with lower back pain while Mario Impemba deals with hip issues.  Allen asked to use the now-infamous chair, due to it being easier on his back.  Impemba was put off by this request, as his hip issues also led him to use the more comfortable seating option in the booth.
