Sam Newman’s podcast could be on the rocks with co-host Don Scott uncertain to return after an on-air blow up.
The former Geelong footballer lost it at his co-host in a since-deleted podcast segment that first appeared on Wednesday.
The Herald Sun first reported Newman’s foul-mouthed blow up which resulted in Scott storming off in the middle of the recording.
Newman appeared to lose it at the Hawthorn premiership winner over something that was happening in the studio.
“Holy shit. Jesus Christ, if you touch that f***ing thing again. Stop it, I’m serious, f*** you, God almighty,” he said, according to The Herald Sun.
Newman went on to say: “I can’t do it. If you could f***ing do something properly for once in your f***ing life, don’t touch the microphone and speak into it and stop eating. F***. Go out, go home.”
As Scott appeared to walk away, Newman said: “Good, f*** off”.
Newman and Scott have both spoken publicly since the argument with Newman admitting he “temporarily lost it”.
He said Scott broke a microphone and headphones.
Scott, meanwhile, has failed to confirm if he will return to the ‘You Cannot Be Series Podcast’ when approached by The Herald Sun.
Newman’s podcast project has repeatedly made headlines for drama behind the scenes. Veteran football journalist Mike Sheahan in 2020 quit the show as a result of the scandal that surrounded Newman’s comments about Nicky Winmar.
Newman has continued to make headlines recently for his divisive comments on the upcoming Indigenous Voice to Parliament referendum.
Newman last month made a public call for football crowds to boo the Welcome To Country held before the AFL Grand Final.
In an appearance on a Rebel News podcast last month, Newman made the ugly comment that there was “nothing here” in Australia before the arrival of the First Fleet in 1787.
