92.9/The Game weekend host fired after comparing Falcons coach firings to Holocaust  22 hours ago By Rodney Ho Share on FacebookShare on Twitter ...

On New Year’s Eve, Norfleet provided this commentary soon after the firings happened. 11Alive captured his thoughtsfrom a podcast recording before the station removed it from the site: "Dan Quinn, firing all three coordinators.

Later he added:  "Dan Quinn is going to be the last one at the top of the pyramid, sucking the last bit of oxygen out of the Flowery Branch (practice location) facility. This is a Hail Mary of sorts. These are the expendable, collateral pieces that come along with this job."  A listener called the station to complain to the producer after he heard this commentary.  “He went into graphic details that are very disturbing and upsetting,” the man emailed me Wednesday. “I am infuriated at what he said.” Norfleet was fired later in the week. Terry Foxx, program director, did not respond to my text inquiry regarding Norfleet’s comments.(Foxx hasn’t responded to any of my inquiries in more than three years.) But the Falcons forwarded a statement from the radio station: “We just learned of comments made earlier this week by a part-time, fill-in host. These comments are abhorrent, repulsive and insensitive. We have terminated our relationship with him. He will no longer appear on the station. We sincerely apologize to the Falcons organization, Coach Quinn, our listeners and our community.” Rich McKay, president of the Atlanta Falcons, released a statement Saturday: “We were just made aware of the comments made by 92.9 host Stan Norfleet earlier this week. The comments are totally unacceptable, not in line with our core values and show a complete disregard for the gravity of human tragedy he sought to use in his analogy. We fully support the station’s decision to terminate him.”

It is becoming popular to compare anything people are outraged by to the Holocaust without anyone having any true experience of it.

That's like everything else in America. Get in line.

I was actually listening to the show driving back from Tennessee when he made the comments.

The comparison was moronic  but he didn't really compare the firings to the holocaust. 

He was referring to 1 particularly vile act committed by the Nazi's as it pertained to forced survival.

He happened to learn about it while visiting the holocaust museum.

I was never really a fan of his on air, so no major loss, but if people would really listen to what others are saying, and try to understand the thoughts they're trying to convey. Instead of looking for a reason to be offended the world would be a better place.

It's getting to the point that no one can offer any kind of opinion without someone getting their feelings hurt.

Pretty stupid analogy, but hardly something somebody should be fired for. People freak out over the littlest things, but I blame the corporations/businesses/foundations that do the actual firings in these cases. No gumption.

I was never a big fan of Norfleet! He was too "DRY" for me and hard to listen to.

Regardless, Come on y'all... Haven't we learned yet that all things "Nazi" are off limits!

Wasn’t crazy about this CowGirls fan being on the Falcons station anyway.

No problem with that at all i never liked Stan in the 1st place on 92.9  they could go ahead and take Duane Walker out as well while were at it.   The rest of the shows are pretty good i like everyone else for the most part. With bunk and Jarvis being my favorites.

They should have fired Hugh Douglas instead.

It would have been epic. 

“Stan, you can’t use that kind of language on the radio in 2019!

I’m afraid we’re gonna have to let Hugh go.....”

I see that you read only the first part of my comment and not the full substance of what I said.
