    Roenick's firing has been a much bigger source of triggering than his comments, and a quick perusal of this thread is confirming this.

    You seem awfully offended that JR got fired. You also seem offended that actions have consequences. The vast majority of posters are not offended by JRs comments. Hell, I just thought they were cringey and reeked of a guy trying too hard, but I have also worked in a professional environment and realized he was likely to be punished in some fashion, knowing that that may even include being fired.

    JR is responsible for his own thoughts, actions, and statements.

    Good post.
    I would add that if JR or anyone wants to be taken seriously as a mature professional he should stay clear of talk shows hosted by and followed by idiots who have not matured beyond the high school jock, locker room mentality.

    "Hey I'm a serious sports reporter, listen to me degrade and objectify my female "friends" and co-workers so the adolescent listeners and the hosts stuck in a state of arrested adolescence can giggle and get some yucks at her expense."

    JR was always a moron who thinks he has more personality and charisma than he actually does. His interviews with non fratboy, jock types were always a painful thing to watch. His bullshit apologies are only slightly less painful. Come on JR, you've been running your mouth long enough that we know who you are: a sad, silly 50 year old man-child who will always be snapping towels in the locker room with your bros.

    Roenick isn’t close to the entertaining personality Barkley is. If he was, NBC would’ve just suspended him the rest of the season. Roenick wasn’t good at his role, said something very stupid involving his colleague, and NBC got rid of him because he wasn’t valuable enough to retain following the incident.

    That's the ironic thing. If you actually listened to the audio, the Barstool guys were trying to get JR to realize what he was saying was not kosher. They gave him ample opportunity to walk things back, but JR continued to plow forward. Also, it appears Spittin' Chicklets allows guests to review their interview and edit out any questionable content, and JR chose to leave it in.

    Note: I'm not a Barstool fan, and prior to this have never listened to any of their podcasts. I'm just relaying facts.

    Roenick doesn't say anything entertaining or outlandish stuff at all, he's just a pompous ass that got famous because he was an good player who liked to talk shit 20 years ago.

    I guess compared to the average bland hockey player who only knows how to say "oh you know, for sure, gets some pucks in deep, traffic in front" then yeah, I guess Roenick has some personality. But still.

    I didn't listen, just saw his comments posted on here. I guess it's good that they tried to dial him back, but he was playing to his audience and to his hosts with those remarks I am sure. JR is just too full of arrogance (and himself) to realize he might face consequences for said remarks - the hosts at least had the common sense to the potential problems the remarks could lead to.

    The apology doesn’t mean shit if his first response was what it was...

    Edit: whoops I had the timeline wrong... fair enough.

    The apology happened a month before the "what A JOKE" post. I'm not sure what you mean

    He's only sorry that his first apology wasn't accepted.

    How could nbc do it without it being ackward when JR and Kathryn Tappen are working the same broadcast events, especially what he said? There's no way they could work together on anything. He's got a bigger problem with their friendship moving forward than getting fired from NBC.

    I guess I could. It'd give the "f*ck your feelings" crowd something else to whine about.

    I know this was 18 pages ago, but I'm quoting it because it can't be said enough.

    The moment those words came out of his mouth, JR created a toxic work environment. There’s no way, especially in a male dominated industry, Tappen wouldn’t feel humiliated and uncomfortable being on TV next to JR. Knowing what every viewer is thinking. For anyone arguing about cancel culture, say something like this at work, have HR find out, and see what happens.

    He talked the same way about Patrick Sharp, who is not even his friend and almost no one was offended here. Why are you not offended about his comments on Sharp and you are for Tappen ? It's all about Tappen in this thread.

    Isn't that the definition of sexism ?

    Imo, neither was sexist, it was a bad joke about a real-life story.

    Oh yeah, totally bro, so much has changed in 7 seven years, it’s crazy Brah. Except for all the movies that are on par or similar to Ted, ....including Ted 2 or Ted 3 that’s in talks. Nope, funny movies are cancelled.

    Was watching Grimsby Brothers (2016) nothing like that will ever be released again...bruh.

    So you defend saying he just made a joke but can’t take one yourself? Good show.
