Radio host: Halladay deserved what he got – then apolgizes days later

The TMZ video of Roy Halladay operating his plane shortly before it crashed:

Michael Felger’s comments on the Halladay plane crash upon learning that the TMZ video showed Halladay operating his plane recklessly:

Boston radio show host, Michael Felger, spouted off a few days ago saying Roy Halladay “Got what he deserved”and called Halladay a “Moron” shortly after seeing video which has surfaced that points to the fact that Roy Halladay operated his plane in a reckless manner, which in turn caused his death.

Maybe Felger’s comments were taken out of context, he said something that probably sounded a bit over the top. In hindsight, yes, it probably was over the top, but were his comments over the anger of seeing someone just ruin their life so recklessly as Halladay did as witnessed in the video?

 Do we have a situation with Halladay like occured in the death of Marlins pitcher, Jose Fernandez, who died in a boat crash, that he in fact was found to be totally at fault for? Should fans and media take this type of feeling towards the Halladay ‘accident’. The same accusatory remarks about Fernandez really didn’t reach the surface of the media, there was more of an idea that it was an accident more than something that was incredibly stupid (which also caused two deaths of Fernandez’s friends)

Felger’s apology for sounding so crass:
