Malthouse uneasy after public spat
Former Magpies coach Mick Malthouse has told Sports Today that recent comments made by himself and Eddie McGuire has made him question his ability to work in the media.
Malthouse who this year took on roles as an AFL commentator at 3AW and Channel 7, said he is now nervous about any comments he makes in the media regarding Collingwood.
"I'm getting paid to do a job, I don't know whether I can actually do that job as openly and honestly as I wanted to do that job," he said.
Malthouse said his relationship with Eddie McGuire since departing the Magpies was "amicable" and "strained", but that he was happy with the support offered to him from current and former players and officials from the club. He said the pair had not yet spoken after their public spat.
Malthouse and McGuire were embroiled in a radio feud over the past two days after Mick said the Magpies were lacking confidence on 3AW Football, in light of Collingwood losing to arch-rivals Carlton on Friday night.
McGuire then bit back at Malthouse, saying "he wouldn’t have a friend at Collingwood today" and telling him to "move on".
Malthouse responded to McGuire's comments on the Neil Mitchell program yesterday, warning Eddie not to try to divide him from his friends at Collingwood.

stick to your principles and tell it as it is. Tony Shaw was criticised for the same thing when he began in the media. Collingwood people especially Eddie cannot handle the truthrob Tuesday 17 April, 2012 - 10:54 PM
Malthouse deserves a great deal more respect than what McGuire's shown him. Footy fans are fortunate to have a man of his experience and achievements working in the media. It seems some have forgotten this is what he's paid and well within his rights to do.Christine Tuesday 17 April, 2012 - 9:03 PM
