Famous Australian Gambler And Sportsman Brendan Fevola Will Pay Kids' Charity...

You know the name, and you know some of his games. AFL, poker and casino slots. Fev will make a payment to well known and respected charity Variety. They will be the beneficiary of ex AFL star Brendan Fevola's drunken New Year's Eve. The former Carlton and Brisbane full forward will pay about $2000 to the charity to avoid charges of obstructing police and public nuisance. Fevola was arrested after ignoring police instructions to get off the road in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley about 4.30am on New Year's Day. The situation degenerated when he resisted arrest and threatened police, allegedly saying: "Come on, take your hat and badge off, I'll smash you." The dual-Coleman medallist had pleaded guilty to the charges but entered mediation talks with police this month to have them dropped. He also wrote a letter of apology to the police involved. Fevola's lawyer Jim Coburn told Brisbane Magistrates Court yesterday mediation had been successful and a commitment has been signed for Fevola to donate the money. The charity, Variety Queensland, was chosen by police. Fevola has two weeks to fulfil the mediation terms. Fevola, who has struggled with gambling and alcohol issues throughout his career, lost about $1 million through betting and admitted he attempted suicide at his lowest point. He spent two months in rehab to deal with mental health and addiction issues after the altercation with police. The living legend was sacked by the Brisbane Lions while he was still in rehab, a move which drew criticism from some quarters, including the AFL Players' Association. Fevola moved back to Melbourne after his release from rehab to be closer to his family, however he is now estranged from his wife Alex and three daughters. His battle with gambling is ongoing. He has been removed from James Packer owned Crown Casino as well as a suburban pokies venue in recent months. Fevola has not given up hope of returning to the AFL, playing for VFL side Casey Scorpions to help rebuild his career. We wish Fev well with his ongoing journey.

The Australian Football League (AFL) is both the professional Australian national competition in the sport of Australian Rules Football and its highest governing body.

The league comprises sixteen teams which play against each other in 22 home and away rounds between late March and late August or early September. This is followed by a four-week finals series which culminates in two teams playing off for the Premiership in the AFL Grand Final.

The organisation which became the Australian Football League was formed in 1897 when eight teams from the Victorian Football Association (VFA, established 1877) broke away to begin the Victorian Football League (VFL). By 1925 the league had expanded to twelve teams (all based in Victoria), a configuration that remained stable until 1982 when the league commenced its expansion towards a national competition by relocating a team from Melbourne to Sydney, New South Wales. Since then five additional teams from Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia have joined the league.

The league was officially renamed the Australian Football League in 1990 to reflect the sport's official name of "Australian Football" and the league's new national perspective and today has teams based in five of the six Australian states - with matches played in all states and territories of Australia.

The AFL has gained considerable media and financial strength, as well as control over the game at most levels through the AFL Commission. It is now responsible for the rules of Australian Football through the AFL Rules Committee (consisting of members from the AFL Players Association). The AFL also became the de facto world governing body in 2002. Since 2000, through the commission, the AFL has pushed for all affiliated leagues and bodies to co-brand with the league as well as refer to the sport as "AFL" in preference to its official name of "Australian Football".

The AFL is the most attended professional sporting league in Australia; it is the most popular sport competition in terms of attendances and TV ratings of the nation. The previous three AFL Premiership Seasons have each had a total home and away season attendance of over six million (currently the 10th most attended professional sports league in the world) with an average attendance of over 36,000. The AFL is the dominant league in television, print, and radio news in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania. In addition, Australian rules football is the most participated football code in these states and territories. Despite the traditional popularity of rugby league in the states of New South Wales, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory, the popularity of the AFL and participation in Australian rules football is increasing.
