Brendan Fevola chastised after revealing strange new addiction
Brendan Fevola has a new habit he can’t shake.
The former AFL star has previously revealed how he sold his Coleman Medal — the coveted award for leading the league’s goalkicking — to fund his gambling addiction, while he also racked up staggering Uber Eats bills ordering from the food delivery app up to four times a day during an 18-month period.

Now the ex-Carlton and Brisbane full forward can’t get enough of video games.
Speaking on his Fox FM radio show with Fifi Box and Nick Cody, Fevola spilt the beans about his addiction to first-person shooter game Call of Duty (COD).
The 40-year-old has spent almost as much time playing COD as he did playing professional footy, racking up 557 hours in front of the screen in the past six months, according to an app that tracks a person’s video game usage.

“It’s a bit scary, but what about all the other things I do? The vacuuming, the cooking, the washing, the cleaning, and I can still get COD in,” Fevola said. “I’m pretty good.
“Early days, I didn’t know what I was doing. I was running around getting shot and had no idea what was going on.”
When Cody suggested his radio co-host had “played more COD than AFL”, Fevola responded: “Righto, Mr Mathematician. What about all the training, the meetings and all the c**p you do? I started playing at the age of five, it’s all hard work.”
Box was keen to talk some sense into Fevola, who became addicted to COD after seeing his brother play it.
“Can I put this in perspective because a lot of your life is going to COD at the moment, a lot of valuable time,” she said.
“You’re dedicating a lot of your life (to COD). And this isn’t a dress rehearsal, you get one shot at life and you’re spending a lot of it playing a video game.
“Point one per cent of games you win, so 0.1 per cent of all that time and energy you’re actually doing something good. Some life choices you might want to reflect on.”
