What did Jeremy Roenick say on the Today Show?

During his time on the program, Roenick did say kind things about Sharp and Tappen, applauding their professionalism and expressing how much he loved working with them. However, five days later, NBC issued his suspension. Tappen issued a statement immediately after Roenick's suspension through an NBC spokeswoman. It read: "We are aware of the situation and have no further comment."

Shortly after news of his suspension broke, it was reported that Roenick had been fired by NBC. His agent said at the time that they were waiting to hear what would happen with Roenick's contract, but added that they believed he had done nothing wrong. Shortly thereafter, it was confirmed that he would not be returning for Season 26.

Roenick began commenting on hockey games during the 2004-05 NHL season. He worked with Sharp and Tappen on location in Canada with producer Jim Terry. The three-year deal was worth $150,000 per year.

In November 2005, it was announced that Roenick had signed with CBC/Radio-Canada to commentate on Hockey Night In Canada beginning with the 2006-07 season. He will also appear on occasion on CBC News Network and Radio-Canada's daily sports show Le Match.

What did Jeremy Roenick say that was unacceptable?

"While Jeremy and I remain good friends," she stated, "what he said was inexcusable." "This is especially true among coworkers."

Roenick had been suspended without pay for three days. The next day, he called in sick.

He didn't return to the team until after the trade deadline had passed. At that point, he was no longer eligible to play in any more games unless Chicago re-signed him (which it never did).

In other words, Jeremy Roenick said something that was inappropriate for someone in his position to say. After being told he would be suspended without pay, he responded by saying something even worse. Then he went out and played golf.

It's a good thing nobody was listening to what he was saying because it might not have been nice. But since he wasn't saying anything bad enough to get himself fired, we can only assume that he just wanted to go home early.

Why was Jeremy Roenick suspended from the NHL?

NBC Sports banned Jeremy Roenick indefinitely on Monday for making improper statements regarding employees. Roenick made a number of inappropriate statements regarding fellow hockey announcers Kathryn Tappen, Patrick Sharp, and Anson Carter during a recent interview on the Spittin' Chiclets podcast. When asked about Tappen, who calls NBA games for NBC, Roenick said, "I would eat my microphone before I'd call her tough." When asked about Sharp, who plays for the Chicago Blackhawks, Roenick said, "If I saw him walking down the street, I'd punch him in the face." And when asked about Carter, who used to play for the New York Rangers, Roenick said, "I'd choke the life out of him.".

Roenick also made comments about former NHL players Sean Avery, Shane Doan, and Donald Brashear. He called Avery a "punk" and said he would fight him if they were both in a boxing ring. As for Doan and Brashear, neither player has ever played in an NHL game. Roenick said he would "run all over them" if they tried to start now.

In addition to banning Roenick from speaking with reporters, NBC Sports has fined him $250,000. The league's suspension will be reviewed by an independent arbitrator before being reinstated or continued.
