The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the Detroit Tigers are moving forward without the services of long-time TV broadcasters Mario Impemba and Rod Allen. According to Local 4 in Detroit, the dispute started over a special chair Impemba used for his back issues.

The issues started before a late-season game and continued afterward, with Allen allegedly pursuing and choking Impemba.

No word on who may replace the pair in the broadcast booth next season.

Allen's agent Tom Shaer denied the allegations at the time in a statement given to WDIV.

Impemba, who called play-by-play, and color commentator Allen apparently got into the altercation following the Tigers' game at Chicago's Guaranteed Rate Field on September 4.

Neither has spoken publicly since the alleged incident.

Longtime Detroit sports personality Matt Shepard and former Detroit Tiger Kirk Gibson were paired together to call the games on Fox Sports Detroit during the Impemba and Allen's absence.
