Saddled with $300,000 in gambling debts, AFL star Branden Fevola's contract on his new Brisbane home collapsed and his family returned to Melbourne indefinitely, according to reports.  The gambling debts were apparently the cause for the failure in securing this home.

Fevola who plays for the Brisbane Lions confirmed speculation and scuttlebutt about his gambling problem last week.  He remains steadfast that he didn't on football with a solid statement "I absolutely have not had a bet on footy,".

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."
