NBC Sports has effectively suspended hockey commentator Jeremy Roenick after comments he made on a Barstool Sports podcast about some of his on-air coworkers at NBC.

On the podcast, Roenick discussed a vacation to Portugal with his wife and Tappen and joked about the possibility of the three of them having sex together. Roenick said they went on vacation together because his wife, Tracy, and Tappen are good friends. When another resort guest asked about the situation, he recalled, “I play it off like we’re going to bed together every night, the three of us.”

“If it really came to fruition, that would really be good, but it’s never going to happen,” Roenick said.

“Ass and boobs everywhere, it’s great. It’s great,” Roenick said about his wife and Tappen. “By the way, if you’re going to go [on vacation] with two blondes, go someplace in the summer where the pool is at.”

NBC Sports released a statement:

“Jeremy Roenick has been suspended indefinitely without pay for making inappropriate comments about his co-workers. We will have no further comment at this time,” the statement read.

At one point during the interview, Roenick called Patrick Sharp “so beautiful” and said: “I’d have to think about it if he asked me. … I wouldn’t say no right away.”

“It’s good to have a beautiful face that talks well that knows the game because it’s totally the opposite when me and Anson get on there,” Roenick said.

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