He’s a former AFL bad boy whose troubles have been well documented.
And this week, Brendan Fevola got absolutely roasted by Hard Chat’s Tom Gleeson.
Tom appeared on Brendan’s Fox FM radio show and took swipes at Brendan for his past gambling addiction, his TV and media career, and for famously interviewing players and WAGs at the Brownlows in 2009 while drunk.

Brendan, 37, took the roasting in good humour, laughing throughout.
‘Why are you working in radio? Is it to top up your Betfair account?,’ Tom said at one point, referring to Brendan’s past gambling issues.
‘It’s actually Ladbrokes,’ Brendan replied, chuckling. ‘The account is going well. No need to top up yet.’

Referencing Brendan’s drunk appearance at the Brownlows, Tom asked: ‘Last year, you turned up sober at the Logies. What was that all about?’
Brendan said he had to sign a contract to stay sober in order to be allowed into the casino.
Tom also took a swipe at Brendan being on The Footy Show.
Another swipe! Taking a dig at Brendan being drunk at the Brownlows, Tom asked: ‘Last year, you turned up sober at the Logies. What was that all about?’
‘You’ve joined Channel Nine’s Footy Show, do you feel like a rat that’s jumped on a sinking ship?,’ Tom said, taking a jab at the program’s lucklustre ratings.
Tom also joked about Brendan’s stint on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and said if he ‘ever considered going back into the jungle and staying there and never coming back.’
