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.
