ESPN's "Numbers Never Lie" Co-Hosts Smith, Douglas Clash

Sources said that ESPN's Michael Smith and Hugh Douglas, co-stars of "Numbers Never Lie," were involved in a "heated verbal altercation Friday night at a party in Orlando." The broadcasters were in town for the National Association of Black Journalists convention and were attending a Sports Task Force party at the House of Blues when "tensions rose and the pair had to be separated" (THEBIGLEAD.com, 8/4). Douglas will not be on today's episode of "NNL," and whether he and Smith will be able to work together "has not been determined" (PROFOOTBALLTALK.com, 8/5).
