The wound is still fresh but Boston radio hosts Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti have no respect when it comes to the death of pitcher Roy Halladay.

Tuesday afternoon, the entire world mourned over the tragic death of former Blue Jays and Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay.

Safe to say that Boston sports radio hosts Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti were the only ones who did not.

The New York Daily News reported today that Felger and Massarotti dismissed the tragedy, calling Halladay a “moron” and an “idiot” through the course of their show “Felger and Mazz.”

The news of the death made me sick but hearing these tasteless, insensitive comments made me feel even worse.


So, just because you have your own sports media platform does not give you the right to craft your own narrative about a terrible tragedy. They say he has a family to think about. Well, guess what? That family is still around, grieving over a horrific loss, and they have to listen to YOU IDIOTS ramble on about how losing an integral part of their family is just an “unfortunate circumstance.”

The ridiculousness is not even the worst we’ve heard on sports radio but especially with the timing, it’s unacceptable. Focus on your crappy Boston teams instead of slamming a two-time Cy Young award winner who left this world before he could be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

How disgusting and inexcusable. But then again, what else can we expect from Boston sports radio? Apparently a simple “Rest in Peace” just will not do.
