‘They hate me’: How Brendan Fevola ruined the Brownlow Medal count for fellow AFL stars as he reveals that alcohol consumption is now limited at the event after his infamous drunken antics in 2009

The 2019 Brownlow Medal count will mark the 10-year anniversary since Brendan Fevola got drunk and caused havoc at the ceremony back in 2009.

And on Thursday, the former AFL star admitted that his infamous inappropriate antics had ruined the festivities for attendees over the years.

‘For the last nine years they have not been able to serve alcohol at a rapid rate that they use to,’ Brendan, 38, said on his FOX 101.9FM Fifi, Fev and Byron show.

Brendan said every year he gets messages from fellow footballers who are unhappy by the new arrangement.

‘They say “You p***k!” They hate me,’ he explained.

Fellow retired AFL star Dane Swan even blamed Brendan’s rowdy Brownlow night for ruining the event’s celebrations on an industry podcast, last week.

Brendan said Dane’s comments ‘pretty much summed it up’, before playing the soundbite on air.

‘Fev f***ed it for everyone. Before the Fev incident, like most award nights, the beers and wine were on the table, but after Fev there is no alcohol on the table, so thanks Fev,’ Dane said in the audio snippet.

Brendan infamously interviewed players and WAGs while heavily intoxicated at the 2009 Brownlow Medal count.

The former Carlton and Brisbane star, who was working for Channel Nine’s AFL Footy Show at the time, pretended to attack then-Carlton superstar Chris Judd, made sexual jokes to his partner Bec, kissed Sydney Swans midfielder Ryan O’Keefe and snapped at the condescension of James Hird.

He left Carlton shortly after the fallout, and was temporarily banned from from appearing on the Grand Final Footy Show.

Brendan discussed the scandal on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016 and remained defiant that he didn’t regret his behaviour.

‘No I had a great time,’ he said. ‘I didn’t hurt anyone. I was really p**sed, if you didn’t notice.’

But later, he seemed willing to accept blame for his actions and told his fellow campers: ‘It was my own fault.’ 

In 2011, Brendan went to rehab for gambling as well as drinking and depression for 60 days and was sacked from playing AFL while there.
