Great Moments in Broadcasting: Sports Announcer Lays into Fellow Broadcaster during Game [VIDEO]
Did a play-by-play announce put his partner on blast on live television? Listen below to YES Network’s broadcaster Ian Eagle lay into his fellow announcer, Mike Fratello, in the final minutes of Saturday’s Nets/Celtics game after Eagle felt Fratello was “patronizing” him.
Eagle was apparently insulted after Fratello explained to him what a “slip screen” was, saying he’s been commentating on basketball for 18 years and he knows what it means. Fratello accused Eagle of being “overly sensitive.”
