Rod Allen: Incident with Mario Impemba more like a baseball brawl

Former Fox Sports Detroit analyst and Detroit Tigers announcer Rod Allen spoke with Free Press business columnist Carol Cain on the “Michigan Matters” program on Sunday morning on WWJ-TV (Channel 62).

In Allen’s first public comments about the Sept. 4 incident with play-by-play broadcaster Mario Impemba, which turned physical and effectively ended the duo’s 16-plus year run calling Tigers games, he said the situation was largely blown out of proportion in media reports.

Allen said he would like to continue broadcasting, and that he has yet to speak to Impemba after the incident.

It may be interesting for some of us to try this on the job, to see if our employers will agree with this sentiment.
