After his retirement as a player, Sharp joined NBC Sports as an analyst. Former NHL forward Jeremy Roenick was suspended indefinitely by NBC Sports on Monday for his inappropriate comments about coworkers.
Roenick made a series of questionable remarks about fellow hockey broadcasters Kathryn Tappen, Patrick Sharp and Anson Carter during a recent appearance on the Spittin’ Chiclets podcast. An NBC Sports spokesman said the suspension is without pay and the network would have no further comment at this time.
On the podcast, Roenick discussed a vacation to Portugal with his wife and Tappen where he made repeated references to the NBC Sports anchor’s appearance and joked about the possibility of the three of them having sex together. He suggested he would be open to sleeping with NBC Sports studio host Kathryn Tappen after the two went on a summer vacation in Portugal with Roenick’s wife, Tracy. Roenick said he was approached by at least one person who asked if the trio were together.
“I play it off like we’re all going to bed together every night, the three of us,” Roenick said. “If it came to fruition, that would be good. But it’s never going to happen.” He revealed this during a recent appearance on the hockey-centric podcast Spittin’ Chiclets, Roenick made remarks about Kathryn Tappen and Patrick Sharp, both of whom also cover the NHL for NBC.
During the podcast interview, Roenick also commented on Sharp’s appearance, calling the retired NHL player “so beautiful” and remarking that “I wouldn’t say no right away” if Sharp invited him to bed.
CNN reported that Roenick said his wife and Tappen, who are close friends, “scream and yell at me, but listen, it’s worth the yelling. There’s no question,” Roenick said.
