"I hear, 'well, it's to grow the game,' he said, referencing some of the players' excuses for signing up with the rival league.
Then he blasted: "Bull---- they paid me a lot of money."
But according to former PGA Tour commentator Gary McCord, Feherty was never really a money guy.
In a recent interview with Golfweek, McCord revealed he, too, was in conversations with calling the action on the breakaway tour.
But he's too old to be travelling the globe, he told the publication.
"Feherty, he went to the evil world of LIV," he said. "One thing if you know about David Feherty is he does not give a s---t about money. And he did it for the money and I'm still trying to figure it out."
Of his potential role, he said: "Norman and I were talking, yea. But I'm too old to go to Bangkok, too old to go to Riyadh, too old to go to Adelaide."
McCord wasn't the only commentator LIV were trying to get on the broadcast in its early days.
He did not want to jeopardise his career on the PGA Tour Champions.
