    Relying on Twitter as a reflection of reality is like thinking Star Wars is a documentary.

    My commentary isnt about the NBC response, which I think is proportionate, but just thinking aloud about the general reaction I saw on Twitter.

    Its brilliant to me that you actually believe you can make a bunch of monkeys who kill each other every day, go to war constantly, people get ripped off and greed is a serious problem that a little nuance like a sexual innuendo needs to be stopped. I rarely if ever get offended and even if I did, I'd simply remove myself from the situation and not make a selfish commotion about something that really didn't hurt anyone. You have every right to be offended, but you cant have free speech and also monitor every single thing someone gets outraged over and the more you do the less free it is. Besides hate speech and racism when you start policing every misguided quote whate the point in having that right then?

    Still not getting it, are you? Nobody was offended by his remarks. The problem came from the fact that this type of comment leads to a toxic, unpleasant work environment.

    NBC has the right to enforce it's empmoyee policy and make it's workplace pleasant of its employees. It helps them attract and retain talent. Why do you want to restrict the rights of a comapny to do this? This is a free country, not a totalitarian state.

    On one hand I feel sympathetic to Roenick, on the other hand I think if I announced to my employer and the general public that I wanted to bang our office accountant I'd be fired too.

    He provided absolutely no meaningful insight whatsoever and just dished out hockey guy cliches. If I made comments like that about a coworker where I work I would be canned too. That's how it works when you work for a company. See ya.

    I would feel bad, but he didn't even apologize or say that he was in the wrong in his little video. You can't make comments like that, friends or not, and expect to keep you're job, especially working for a company like NBC.

    I just wonder why sucking at his job never got him fired.

    Pretty sure he can thank himself for that and no one else.

    He can get a job at Sportsnet, where acting like a complete clown seems to be a job requirement outside a select few.

    I was under the impression that all that he said was that he wouldn't kick Tappen out of bed, but, according to the following Yahoo article, there was more to it than I realized.
    Jeremy Roenick dismissed by NBC for inappropriate comments: 'Very disappointed and angry'

    he didn't seem like he was all there when he made his comments. This isn't the joe rogan experience, they might have had a problem with him being tipsy as much as the content of what he said.

    Why not? His wife clearly doesn't care and he's clearly joking, they're all best friends. Neither are upset about his comments so cares that random people that don't know them are triggered.

    I'm confused how anyone can blame Spittin Chiclets?

    Would it be better if they edited the part out and swept it under the rug, only for it to come out later and for them to be painted as misogynist pigs? Their whole podcast/brand is based on players/former players being able to say what they want, unfiltered... if the guests say something out of line thats on them. They are fully aware they are being recorded and the conversations will be posted on social media.

    Haven't checked the whole thread, but in the first couple of pages, I don't think anyone is applauding NBC. Judging by JR's "What a joke" comment, he just seems like someone who doesn't get it, so this is NBC doing the bare minimum.

    If he had any self-awareness and owned up to it he might have kept his job, but I think it's his brutish arrogance that ultimately brought the hammer down

    Is this a parody post? Well done man, haven't seen satire like this since Jonathan Swift.

    I would've rather seen a path to redemption but it was a mistake & a tough one to move past. There's some speculation higher ups already weren't happy with JR before this incident.

    I like that JR has a personality, I see alot of ppl here don't like him (I don't get NBC enough to know) but from what I've seen I think he's alright. I don't condone what he said or find it acceptable. Pretty disappointing he said it. Its too bad, as I said I'd rather an opportunity to learn + improve, but the decision is totally understandable. Hopefully JR will learn & can get back on his feet in time.

    Someone said Barstool exists on its 'own spectrum', which it does to a degree. Alot of it is younger people, and its not all men. Call Her Daddy is very popular amongst younger woman. I don't know what that means about younger people, but its not like its a gender exclusive thing where they are only attracting men to their network.
