Sometimes, disagreements just spill over into the professional world and can't be avoided. It was revealed on Wednesday, March 20, 2013, that Comcast SportsNet analysts Kendall Gill and Tim Doyle reportedly got into an altercation in the newsroom over this past Monday's controversial ending to the game between the Chicago Bulls and Denver Nuggets.
Things apparently got physical.
An eyewitness told ChicagoBusiness.com that Gill had confronted Doyle and at least one punch was thrown. The eyewitness also said that "a small amount of blood was drawn" in the altercation between the two former basketball stars.
The way it seems to have gone is that Gill was upset over a disagreement he had with Doyle during the taping of Comcast SportsNet earlier in the night. Doyle apparently had made some critical comments on the air about Gill's analysis about the final moments of the Bulls/Nuggets' game.
Gill ended up confronting Doyle in the newsroom and that is supposedly where things got ugly.
Gill called out Doyle for his comments and that escalated into a shoving match between the two. It is said that Gill threw a punch at Doyle before they both bumped up against the wall and a small bit of blood was drawn. That is when they were separated.
"We're looking further into the incident that took place in our newsroom earlier today," said CSN Chicago news director Kevin Cross in a statement late last night. "Until the investigation is complete, Kendall Gill will not be appearing on our air."
It seems that Gill said the goaltending call against Bulls' center Joakim Noah in overtime was "a very bad call on the officials' part." Doyle refuted the comments on Tuesday's show, and that was it.
