Roenick suspended by NBC Sports for inappropriate comments

Sports suspended hockey commentator Jeremy Roenick after comments the former NHL All-Star made on a Barstool Sports podcast about some of his on-air coworkers at NBC, multiple outlets reported Monday.

The Spittin Chiclets co-hosts again tried to steer the conversation toward Roenick's professional relationship with Tappen, who joined NBC in July 2014 to work as an on-air host.

Roenick, who was born in Boston and played hockey at Thayer Academy, appeared on the December 19 episode of Barstool's "Spittin' Chiclets" podcast. Riffing off the banter about Tappen, the podcast hosts asked Roenick if he would consider sleeping with Sharp, to which Roenick replied, "He is so lovely. I do not condone his comments", Tappen said, according to John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal. He was later suspended indefinitely by the network.

"I play it off like we're all going to bed together every night, the three of us". I think her curiosity rose to a level where she's like, 'I've got to figure out what the hell is going on here.' So she walks right into the pool and comes right up to us and says, 'OK, what's the situation? And if it really came to fruition, that would be good.

In the same podcast, talk turned to Sharp, whom Roenick described as "so lovely", and whether Roenick would sleep with him.

Roenick said his wife and Tappen, who are close friends, "scream and yell at me, but listen, it's worth the yelling".

Roenick also called Sharp "so beautiful" and said "I'd have to think about it if he asked me".

There's no gray line here with what Roenick said, about Tappen or Sharp.

Roenick then appeared to contrast Sharp's looks with his and those of Anson Carter, another former NHL player who analyzes hockey for NBC Sports.

Roenick later reportedly called Sharp "one of the greatest, greatest guys on the planet" and "one of my best friends".

Roenick played 20 National Hockey League seasons with the Blackhawks, Coyotes, Flyers, Sharks and Kings before taking his talent to TV.
