Media Man and Gambling911 investigate and tell it like it is in regard to Brendan Fevola...

The star athlete is seeking professional help in a bid to "knock it on the head".

Fev who plays for the Brisbane Lions confirmed speculation and scuttlebutt about his gambling problem.  He remains steadfast that he didn't on football with a solid statement "I absolutely have not had a bet on footy,". We're not sure if his sponsors or business partners wanted to hear those words or not, given the now high profile sponsorship and advertising deals Australian sport has in place with betting firms.

Fev appeared on Network Nine blokey television program 'The Footy Show' and declared "I have a gambling issue and I want to knock it on the head". The shows audience is broken into sections and their is a corner in the studio sporting heavy Centrebet signage!

Fev goes on "It's been going on for a few years. You don't think you have a problem, and it's a bit of fun, and then it catches up to you. When you have a punt, you have ups and downs and it does affect you. It hasn't affected my footy.  But by addressing it, I hope I come out the other end a better person."

The footballer plays poker and bets on horses, and is said to owe at least three bookmakers a six-figure total!

Some people have addictive personalities, and in this case gambling has proved to be a problem for Mr Fevola. We commend him for owning up to the issues and it does appear that he's doing something about it. Self awareness and taking responsibility for your own actions goes along way in the healing process, and we think he's got a good chance of bouncing back in champion fashion.

Gambling911 and Media Man remind punters to bet with your head, not over it, know the odds, and keep it fun. If you're gambling catches up with you and stops being fun, please seek professional assistance.
