McGuire past week urged the Cats to be clear about the instances bordering the incident, which noticed Steven admitted to hospital with a stab wound, and questioned why coach Chris Scott held a push convention but refused to delve deeper into the condition.
It prompted a war of phrases in between McGuire and Geelong president Colin Carter following he declared his Magpies counterpart was “hopelessly conflicted”.

“Don’t accuse him of a conflict of fascination or something like that for the reason that he will go feral. After all, he’s ‘Untouchable Eddie’.
“Eddie reported Geelong need to just come clean on what occurred with Jack Steven finding stabbed, just explain to us what occurred. Colin Carter responded pointing out there was a conflict in between becoming a president of a club and a soccer commentator, which is painfully accurate and clear often when Eddie opens his mouth, which is often.”
It did not just take long for McGuire to hit back.
“My position was the exact on Friday as it is now, which has been misreported and especially yesterday maliciously by that about-puffed up windbag on 3AW Neil Mitchell who takes advantage of matters at his own volition,” McGuire reported on Triple M.
“What we reported on Friday and we say below now is if you are not heading to get requested the question that is pertinent really don’t set the person up in front of the media irrespective of whether it’s the coach or the player by itself.
“Otherwise the journos there are to check with the thoughts that are the most pertinent in the condition. Not for them, if he’s proper to reply the thoughts set them forward if you are not, you really don’t check with them.”
The discussion exploded again on Footy Classified on Wednesday night time when McGuire located himself in the center of a heated discussion with Sam McClure and Caroline Wilson about the Steven stabbing and the media’s managing of the condition.
McGuire reported the media is there to uncover the reality and check with the hard thoughts.
He reported he would have informed McClure: “Son, there’s the auto, get in it and really don’t come back” if he hadn’t requested Steven to divulge info bordering the incident when he arrived at Geelong instruction before this week.
McClure accused McGuire of becoming out of contact with the present media landscape and on Twitter this early morning threatened to resign from his part.
“I’m a sports journalist. If a dude who has been open up about his mental overall health struggle – who practically dropped his lifestyle in a violent incident – doesn’t want to converse about it, I’m heading to respect that,” he wrote.
“If you disagree with that, Eddie, really don’t hassle sacking me, I’ll resign.”
