On Wednesday, Michael Felger, the cohost of the popular 98.5 The Sports Hub talk show "Felger and Mazz", ranted for 12 minutes on Halladay on Wednesday, calling him a "moron" and "idiot".

Thursday afternoon, Felger said his comments were "over the top" and 'insensitive.' He offered a personal apology to Halladay's family saying he felt bad about what he said on a lot of levels.

Halladay was killed in a small plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico.

Felger called Halladay a "moron" and pointed to video a witness shot shortly before the crash that showed Halladay making risky dives toward the water.

"If I die helicopter skiing, you have the right to do the exact same thing I'm doing to Roy Halladay". That one's gonna stick with me for a while.

Felger also apologized to his coworkers for having to "answer for my poor judgment" over the past 24 hours. The longtime radio host also expressed regret for making light of Dale Earnhardt Sr.'s death. I don't feel good about. Give me a break. With the news, social media exploded with messages remembering Halladay, who was only 40, for his accomplishments in baseball but more importantly, for the wonderful person he was off the field. I'm sorry, dude, you're on your own.

As for Halladay, Fulger said the former pitcher, "got what he deserved". Felger told WBZ-TV he doesn't believe he should be suspended.

The co-hosts criticized Halladay for flying as a hobby, and insinuated that he cared "little" about his life or his family. I'm not telling you that I've been treated unfairly, because parts of that diatribe were so over the top, and the overall tonality was so bad that I deserve whatever headline I get.
