"Until the investigation is complete, Kendall Gill will not be appearing on our air." Pundit fight! Last night, former NBA player and current Comcast SportsNet Chicago Bulls analyst Kendall Gill started a physical altercation with Tim Doyle of the Big Ten Network, after Doyle made some disparaging remarks about Gill's analysis. Mr. Gill confronted Mr. Doyle in the newsroom over critical comments he had made on the air about Mr. Gill’s analysis of the controversial final moments of Monday’s Chicago Bulls-Denver Nuggets game. According to Chicago Business' Danny Ecker, the fight started after a taping of Sports Talk Live, during which Doyle criticized Gill's on-air analysis of the controversial play that had ended the Nuggets-Bulls game the night before. The referees appeared to make the correct call and the NBA league office reportedly claimed afterward that the officials did, in fact, follow the correct procedure in using the video review to reach their conclusion.
