Jeremy Roenick not returning to NBC

Jeremy Roenick has hit out after being fired from NBC Sports for making comments about having a threesome with his co-host, describing the decision as "a joke".

Matters went from bad to worse for Jeremy Roenick now, and also the longtime National Hockey League player-turned-commentator is not pleased about it. NBC Sports, which had suspended Roenick through Christmas week over unsuitable remarks about a colleague at a podcast, stated he won't be returning to his occupation.

Later in the podcast, Roenick also talked about how attractive he thinks former National Hockey League player and current NBC Sports broadcaster Patrick Sharp is in comparison to himself and co-host Anson Carter.

Roenick made that announcement himself in a video posted to Twitter Wednesday afternoon.

At all times recognized for being outspoken and typically controversial, even throughout his taking part in days, Roenick stated in a video posted on social media: "I'm very upset and offended at this time".

"I'm also grateful that I've had the opportunity to share my love, my passion and my knowledge of the game with millions of people, millions of fans", he adds. A network spokesman confirmed Roenick's dismissal to the Associated Press, adding that NBC Sports would have no further comment.

He then thanked his fans for their support. "I play it off like we're going to bed together every night, the three of us", Roenick said.

"If it really came to fruition, that would really be good, but it's never going to happen", Roenick said.

"I was the king of Portugal", Roenick said.

"Even though I'm leaving NBC, I will not be gone for long".

"It's good to have a lovely face that talks well, that knows the game because it's totally the opposite when me and Anson get on there", he joked.

Roenick played 20 National Hockey League seasons in Chicago, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and San Jose, tallying 1216 points in 1363 career games and making nine All-Star Games.

Later in the podcast, Roenick said he tried to be careful of the things he said "because of my boss ... and because of NBC".

He retired in 2009 and joined NBC Sports in 2010.
