Roy Halladay would fly in dogs in need of rescue for free

Michael Felger, of the "Felger and Mazz" show on Boston's 98.5 The Sports Hub, said Halladay "got what he deserved" and called him a "moron", after video surfaced of the two-time Cy Young victor maneuvering his Icon A5 close to the water. They're the ones dealing with enough right now not to have to have me come over the top and do what I did (Wednesday). That was just dumb hyperbole.

The rant met with disapproval from outlets including AWFUL ANNOUNCING ("terrible and offensive"), DEADSPIN ("a long and genuinely astonishing rant. obnoxious braying"), the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS ("hard to understand how two people could be that insensitive to the whole situation"), UPROXX ("the complete lack of sympathy shown to Halladay's family is jarring and unnecessary.even by the low standards of the world of shock jock radio, this is an incredibly disgusting and distasteful segment"), YAHOO!

Halladay, 40, was killed Monday when his A5 aircraft crashed into the Gulf of Mexico. Give me a break. "To say "inappropriate and over the line" is just stating the obvious, they're clearly those things and it really goes without saying", he reiterated. "There is stuff that I did mean, but the presentation and the tone and the hyperbole was just low class, bad, not good". I don't feel good about.

"I regret my conduct yesterday". What I've gotten I deserve.

Moreno: Relationship with Klopp odd
Alberto Moreno has spoken of his "strange relationship" with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp , which has improved this season. I went to talk to him five or six times and the message was the same, but nothing changed.

"I'm talking about me there. I got no sympathy for you".

Wherever the line is on sports talk radio, Michael Felger crossed it. Your little joyride is that important to you?

"If I die helicopter skiing, you have the right to do the exact same thing I'm doing to Roy Halladay". I'm telling you I was talking about me, not him. You can believe what you want to believe.

Felger-a host that's made headlines for bashing men for taking paternity leave when their children are born and accused ex-Red Sox star Jason Varitek of having an affair with a reporter-went after Halladay and showed no remorse.

A person dies and Felger says, "meh".
