Former NHL forward Jeremy Roenick was suspended forever by NBC Sports on Monday for his unsuitable remarks about colleagues.

Roenick made a series of doubtful remarks about fellow hockey broadcasters Kathryn Tappen, Patrick Sharp and Anson Carter throughout a recent appearance on the Spittin' Chiclets podcast. Roenick said they went on holiday together since his other half, Tracy, and Tappen are great buddies. Roenick consequently applauded Tappen as "among the most professional sports personalities I know."

Later on in the interview, Roenick called Sharp "so lovely" and stated: "I 'd need to believe about it if he asked me. ... I would not say no right now." He then appeared to contrast Sharp's look with his and Carter's.

"It's excellent to have a gorgeous face that talks well that understands the game because it's totally the opposite when me and Anson get on there," Roenick said.

He also called Sharp, a former colleague, "among the greatest, biggest people in the world" and stated, "I think he's been great for NBC."

Roenick played 20 NHL seasons with the Blackhawks, Coyotes, Flyers, Sharks and Kings prior to moving into television. He has been an expert at NBC Sports considering that 2010.
