NFT: Boston radio host lives up to his city's classy rep

Felger, co-host of CBS Boston’s “Felger & Massarotti,” went on a long rant about Halladay on his show Wednesday. He disparaged Halladay and mocked his decision to take up flying planes as a hobby.

“‘Weee! Weee!'” Felger said, mocking Halladay. “‘Yeah, man, look at the G-force on this! I’m Maverick [from ‘Top Gun’]. Yeah, man, look at this, it’s so cool!’ And you die. Splat. And it’s over. So you’re that guy? You have to do that?

“‘Weee! Oh, look, I just landed on the water, everybody. I’m gonna tweet it!’ Splat. You’re dead. Two kids. Moron.”


I thought it was only former Sawx they shit on in that town?

Christ, what an asshole.

so why does Boston get saddled with all the vagrants classlessness just because they currently reside there.

It's like blaming NY for Carton or Don Imus or the littany of other shady radio/media people from NY.

Felger is a douche bag and his commentary was classless but no reason to take a pot shot at Boston which is really irrelevant to this story.

Haha, classic. So this guy says that Halladay deserved to die, among other completely tasteless comments, and that's all cool by you. But Greg makes a joking comment about Boston and that's where you draw the line on narrow mindedness? Got it.

1) I never said it was cool, nor did I defend or approve his comments
2) Greg doesn't seem to be kidding, judging by his follow up comment

Felger has really been losing it the last year or so.
His perspective and 'logic' have been, a, bizarre, more frequently each week.
If it's an identity or ratings thing, it's failing.
If it's a real mental health issue, he needs help, post haste.

I know, just giving you shit. I expected you would recognize that.

I will say though, living in Boston metro area and raising my family here, and spending as much time in NYC as I do and have, I love both cities.

however I have really grown to realize, Boston (real Boston, not suburban Boston where I live - but Southie, revere, Dorchester, Lynn, etc.) doesn't give a shit who like them or not. They almost embrace the hate.


Back to Felger, he's a douche and his comments were awful. He's always had a superior mentality and I never listen to him anymore.

Your 10:23 post doesn't exactly come across as criticizing him, either now does it? "The humanity!". It's just funny that you chose to call Greg narrow minded while making excuses for the clown in the article.

Craig Carton mocked women with post partum depression and allegedly stole millions of dollars from investors.
wow  
Les in TO : 11/9/2017 11:38 am : link
I'm pretty sure he will get canned for that - you don't disparage and mock the death of a well respected baseball star. until the investigation is complete, we don't even know whether he was performing any risky top gun style stunts or if he was in some sort of medical trouble before the accident. even if halladay was performing a risky stunt, you don't make light of his death or piss on his grave.

I suppose its not a big deal, but making jokes and calling out Halladay on this is a) ridiculous (a guy is more likely to die driving down the highway than the way he did) and b) tasteless. Radio douche deserves the criticism coming his way.

Maybe not a big deal to you or me because we didn't know Halladay personally. But there are a lot of people in Halladays life that would probably disagree with you. I'm sure the first thing that his wife and children thought about when they heard this rant was "hey, that's a Will Ferrell reference!".
