  1. WOW!! When someone makes comments on a tragic happening to someone else, the only reason I can think of to disparage them would be something to the affect of: Stole his wife AND kids, or, found out his portion of someone's will was given to the unforeseen party, or killed a family member. The comments made are to be categorized in the "Emotional outburst" realm and to be said in private at best, not as professional public broadcasting!! My comment comes from not a baseball follower nor a Sports commentary follower, just as a disappointed human being of someone like Michael Felger and his flippant mouth!! I suppose he got the attention he works to achieve by landing in the media "top stories".. Be proud you ass-clown" but beware "Karma is a bitch!!"…

  2. This guy and anyone who agrees with him are losers and need life. HALLADAY did more off the field.for this planet then scum like you could.ever dream of doing. Hope.he loses.his.job and his family suffers from.it so then we can say he got what he deserves. But Roy wouldn't want that! Humanity is dying at the hands of scum like this

  3. Michael Felger was right Roy Halladay was a douche and a fucking moron and deserved to die. Go Patriots and Tom Brady, we're going to the fucking Super Bowl again. Also Philly sucks shit

  4. Felger is not the most popular or most controversial sports radio host in Boston. He is a total douche though. That being said, I'm more sick of people who get offended by words than I am of douches. Free speech is king.

  5. I've always hated Felger, I usually don't wish for anyone to get fired, but Felger should be disciplined hard…he crossed the line too many times for this to be ignored

  6. He is right. That's what happens when you shake hands with the devil. Now your kids have no dad and no one to blame but roy halladay

  7. I don't think he meant what he said in a disrespectful way but more like if you don't know what your doing or have no idea what your doing you shouldn't be doing it. I can't swim so I wouldn't be a fishermen or join the Olympics swimming team before I knew how to swim. Who knows maybe Halladay thought he could fly by himself after only few hrs of flight time? And this maybe far fetched but how come no one mentioned suicide? So he could give his kids and wife the insurance money.

  8. I wouldn't have said "he deserved it" but he's no wrong, he had it
    coming. Your going to risk your life to have fun in a tiny ass plane,
    despite your wife begging you to not do it, that's his fault, and felger
    is right. #ImWithFelger

  9. can u imagine….crazy that this guy represents us the city of Boston and Boston sports the way he has over the years he should be fired and since then I have not listened to the show

  10. Who knows if he really meant his apology. Felger just made it trying to protect his own ass didn't want to get suspended or fired, and didn't want to see his ratings suffer because of it. I mean now he knows all of this but didn't of course know it at the time.

  11. First amendment right protects the speech of those who speak it whether or not you believe in it. You don't like what felger said then boycott sports hub but they pay him to say his thoughts and he said them. I don't see any reason why he should be disciplined

  12. Yeah people can’t handle harsh truths anymore, they just can’t…..it’s a tragedy that he died, but it was totally avoidable….wether you wanna face it or not is up to you, it was a stupid irresponsible act that lead to his death, and if I do something stupid that leads to my death I have no problem with people saying so
