Brendan Fevola Career

AFL career

Fevola was drafted into Carlton Football Club with the No. 1 selection No. In the 1998 AFL Draft, the AFL Draft had a 38 percent overall. Despite Carlton finishing last year last year, he showed signs of being a superb kick of the ball and a prospective key position player at full forward early in his career, and he led the AFL reserves for the 1999 season with 42 goals. He kicked 12 goals during a pre-season game against Collingwood (promoted as the "Millennium Match") on December 31, 1999.

The promising talent was given the No. 1 ranking. Alex Jesaulenko, a Carlton legend, made a 25 guernsey famous.

However, Fevola struggled to maintain form over the next two years, playing in 39 games and kicking 66 goals between 2000 and 2002, with noticeably poor body language on-field as well as off-field incidents. Wayne Brittain, the former football coach of Carlton, had intended to trade or delist Fevola at the end of the 2002 season; however, after Carlton's poor season (in which it gained the wooden spoon) Brittain was fired, and new head coach Denis Pagan changed Brittain's decision.

Pagan's arrival had an immediate effect on Fevola's discipline and form. Fevola kicked 8 goals against the Kangaroos in Round 5, 2003, helping win the game for Carlton and bringing himself into the eyes of AFL fans. Fans are raving over Fevola's unkempt dreadlocks and extroverted demeanor in the media, earning him the nickname "The Shag" for him.

Fevola's early goalkicking inconsistency led him to try new techniques of playing the ball when approaching set shots. Fevola began a ritualistic set-shot regimen in 2004, resulting in a dramatic rise in goal shot accuracy, particularly from long distances. His practice, which at times lasted longer than a minute, became a point of contention, and was partially responsible for the enactment of a new law in 2006 (commonly referred to as "the Lloyd Rule"), limiting the time allowed to take a set shot to 30 seconds before play-on was called. Fevola's ritual was then shortened to accommodate the new emperor's.

Fevola capped off a spectacular year and his best to that point by scoring 84 goals and winning the Coleman Medal and All-Australian pick in 2006. In 2007, he scored 59 goals in 2007, then topped him out with his career-best of 99 goals for the season, placing him second behind Lance Franklin in the Coleman Medal competition. He was selected for Victoria in the AFL Tribute Match in 2008, kicking six goals and winning the Allen Aylett Medal as the best on ground.

Fevola earned his second Coleman Medal in 2009, scoring 86 goals for the season, eight goals ahead of runner-up Jonathan Brown. He was the first Carlton player to win the League goalkicking twice, and it was his seventh season as the club's top goalkicker; only Stephen Kernahan (11) had won the award more times in a row. Later, he sold the medal "to finance a gambling addiction."

Carlton revealed on September 30, 2009, that it will request Fevola during the 2009 trade week due to his off-field play, most significantly due to antics at the 2009 Brownlow Medal Count. He was officially traded to the Brisbane Lions on October 9th, as part of a second round draft pick (#27 overall) in exchange for Brisbane's Lachlan Henderson and a first round draft pick (#12 overall). In addition, Carlton has decided to pay Fevola $100,000 for each of the two years he served on his existing deal. After playing 187 senior games for 575 goals, Fevola left the club as a life member of the club, the third most goals by any player in Carlton Football Club history. Given the circumstances surrounding his demise, Carlton has maintained that Fevola's life membership was not affected and that he remained warm at the club.

Fevola was given the Number 5 guernsey at Brisbane. In the first round of the 2010 season, he made his Lions debut against the West Coast Eagles. He scored 48 goals in 17 games in the 2010 season.

Fevola was fired by the Lions on February 20, 2011, following further off-field controversies surrounding the 2010/11 offseason.

Media career

Fevola was a regular panelist on the Nine Network, and he was known for his larrikin persona. His time as a panelist came to an end after his participation at the 2009 Brownlow Medal Count, the same event that resulted in his resignation from Carlton.

Fevola joined Fox FM in April 2016 to host Fifi, Dave, Fev, & Byron with Fifi Box, Dave Thornton, and Byron Cooke. Dave Thornton resigned from the show in September 2017, but the show was renamed to Fifi, Fev & Byron. Byron Cooke resigned from the show in December 2020 and was replaced by Nick Cody in January 2021. Fifi, Fev & Nick was renamed on the show.

After losing some weight following his AFL retirement, he joined Jenny Craig and became a TV ambassador for the company as a result of his weight loss efforts.

Fevola appeared in the second season of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, which he won and was crowned King of the Jungle. The $100,000 reward for taking out the title was to be donated to his chosen charity. Felova's chosen charity, Shane Warne Foundation, and the series runner-up Paul Harragon's chosen charity, Mark Hughes Foundation, split the winnings equally between him and his chosen charity, Shane Warne Foundation.

Best career games

Fevola's highest goalkicking performance in an AFL match was nine goals against Richmond in 2009. He had scored eight goals on eight separate occasions before this. Fevola's best tally was 53.232 in his first season with the Brisbane Lions.

Fevola's best effort in AFL matches outside of the Premiership season was a tally against Collingwood in the 2000 pre-season match known as the Millennium Match; and, he had two other eight-goal hauls in AFL games against North Melbourne, earning him the Michael Tuck Medal and the 2005 NAB Cup semi final. During the 2011 VFL season, he scored ten goals against Frankston and the Northern Bulls respectively.
