It was revealed last Friday that AFL great Gary Ablett Sr has been diagnosed with ‘significant brain damage’ following multiple head clashes during his illustrious 1031-goal career.
This has come as devastating news to the AFL community, including Carlton-forward legend and Fifi, Fev & Nick’s Brendan Fevola who has clocked up an impressive 204-game career, and many head knocks in the process.
As a result, Fevola has taken it upon himself to undergo an MRI scan to detect chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a common brain disorder for past athletes linked to repeated blows to the head.
Hear Fev’s full MRI scan here:
“You can’t move, and I had to get out” Fev explains his MRI scan experience
“I didn’t wanna do it”
“There’s 200 class actions against the AFL about going back onto the ground after being concussed”
Fev’s MRI scan results will be released tomorrow on the show.
