I agree. I can't stand listening to Gibby announce, he talks about everything but the game. Plus his dull monotone voice puts me to sleep.

I haven't been to a game in years. But a lot of times I don't take my phone with me. I'm not one of those people that are glued to their phones all day. They did say if you don't have a smart phone you can go to the ticket booth. Maybe you can get a stub there???

They've announced that Matt Shepard is going to do the play-by-play now and Kirk Gibson as analyst. I'll continue watching with the sound off, that duo is a stinker in my book. Give me Dan and Jim on the radio feed instead (except the delay never matches the television screen at all, the TV is way behind).

I also do not like the move to "all mobile ticketing" only, as I have (had) a ticket stub collection that was a treasured keepsake, and I might not want to carry my not waterproof smartphone to the park in the rain. Ticket prices have quadrupled since I started going to the park in '04 and the team is as bad or worse now than it was back then, so I rarely if ever get down there anymore anyhow.

As long as it's not Kirt Gibson announcing, I hate it when he does. I was bummed when I heard about it....I always thought they had good chemistry.

The article I read said it was over a chair.

DETROIT (WOOD) — Fox Sports Detroit commentators Rod Allen and Mario Impemba won’t be calling Detroit Tigers games for the rest of the season.

The network announced Impemba and Allen won’t be scheduled to call any games for the rest of the season after they allegedly got into a fight following Tuesday’s broadcast. Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV reported that Allen attacked Impemba from behind when he left the broadcast booth.

Allen’s agent has called the allegations “utter fabrications” and said there was no contact between the two. Allen tweeted about the incident Thursday, but didn’t confirm or deny the allegations.

Matt Shepherd and Kirk Gibson called the team’s game against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday. The network didn’t immediately announce who will be calling the rest of the games this year.

What do you want to bet they are fired? It's about time we got some new TV broadcasters anyhow, put C-MO in the booth with Dan Dickerson!
