NBC suspends analyst Jeremy Roenick indefinitely

According to Sports Business Journal, NBC has suspended long time analyst Jeremy Roenick for what the company deemed "inappropriate comments" directed at his fellow coworkers at NBC Sports.

Jeremy Roenick has been suspended indefinitely without pay for making inappropriate comments about his co-workers, said the statement sent to Sports Business Journal's e-mail. We have no further comment at this time. 
The comments were made as Roenick appeared on the Spittin Chiclets podcast, and were directed towards NBC Sports studio host Kathryn Tappen and fellow analyst Patrick Sharp.
I play it off like we're all going to bed together every night, the three of us, Roenick said on the podcast. If it really came to fruition, that would be really good. But it's never going to happen. 
The comment was regarding a trip Roenick, his wife and Tappen all took to Portugal. He added that Tappen and his wife are very close friends.
He's [Patrick Sharp] so beautiful, I'd have to think about it if he asked me, Roenick jokingly stated. I wouldn't say no right away.  
Personally, I think the comments weren't made to be taken literally, but were made to make people on the podcast and the people listening to the podcast laugh.

Is NBC right for suspending Roenick?
