Seems harsh, but I can understand it.
No place for the comments he made. Not surprised about this at all.
I for one am looking forward to the reasoned, thoughtful, and considerate conversation that will surely follow in this thread.
surprising, yet not at the same time
I can't really ear what jeremy roenick says because i got my two stanley cup ring plug in my ear.
Not surprising, but unfortunate. Hopefully someone hires him, he's a good analyst.
He got sacked so yeah
Couldn't stand him as a broadcaster wish he would've gone on spittin chicklets sooner.
Once again I'm right in my analysis
But for real, this guy sucks
What he said was wildly inappropriate, completely unprofessional, and I completely support NBC suspending him for it.
That being said I could've seen a path where he comes back after the all-star break, makes a quick on-air apology, and resumes his duties. He's not in Matt Lauer territory or anything.
At the same time though, NBCUniversal is a massive corporation that can't really afford to screw around with stuff like this anymore. So I guess I shouldn't be surprised. And it's not like Roenick is irreplaceable as a hockey commentator.
He should start his own podcast! And Keep working out and wearing beige turntlenecks with lambskin coats and stuff though
Before you applaud NBC for their wokeness, Just remember NBC kept and systematically protected high profile sexual predators and alleged serial rapists Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer for decades.
He just really wanted to bang his hot co-host. He'll get hired somewhere else. JR, next time keep your dirty thoughts to yourself. People don't want you to be honest about what you're thinking, they prefer you to do it behind the scenes and be sneaky so it stays hidden behind cameras.
Come to SportsNet.
"What a joke" he says lmfao
Don't say you wanna have a threesome with your female coworker publicly ya weirdo
Hell yeah. Love this. Hopefully he finds no more work.
Yeah tough to feel bad for a guy who's that out of touch with reality.
Cool. No point in trying to be better going forward I guess...
I would have liked to see a different path here. What he said was inappropriate, but getting rid of him wasn’t the only form of remediation. He brought a good energy and viewpoint to the broadcasts that otherwise can get kind of antiseptic and bland.
The truth of things is no one tunes into these broadcasts to see what the people on the intermission shows have to say.
They've had a Winter Classic, All-Star weekend, and several other games without him on the broadcast. My guess is NBC looked at the response and their ratings and said, "We can't tell that anyone noticed him being gone or cared. Eff it. Let's move on."
Your point still stands but NBC is a part of NBCUniversal, which is owned by Comcast.
Disney owns ABC, ESPN (80% ownership), FX, Hulu, and National Geographic.
Not trying to nitpick it's always a bit staggering to remember just how big these media companies are.
I mean, the fact Tappen didnt come out and try and defend his actions at all kind of says it all, right?
