Football legend Brendan Fevola loses his temper over a fan who got a VERY unique tattoo as a tribute to one of the former Carlton star’s greatest games
- Die-hard blues fan Damon Mule got a QR code tattooed on the back of his leg.
- Scanning the code reveals a featured pack of the 2003 Fevola reproduction
- The Carlton legend scored eight goals in the team’s great comeback win over the Bombers
Brendan Fevola has been stunned by a die-hard Carlton fan who had a QR code tattooed on his leg as a tribute to him – and a rare reminder of one of his greatest games.
Damon Mule had the code tattooed on his left calf in early May, and once scanned, a YouTube video appears of Fevola kicking eight goals for Carlton in their stunning comeback win over Essendon in the third round, 2007.
“I see this game in a couple of weeks, it’s a real highlight,” Mule said.
He tweeted a video of a friend scanning the tattoo on his phone and showing a video from the Carlton Football Club’s YouTube account, titled ‘From the Vault – Fev’s Clinic’.
Blues staunch Damon Mule’s tattoo has wowed Brendan Fevola. Scanning the QR code on Mule’s leg brings up a video highlight from one of Carlton’s best games.
Fevola (pictured) kicked eight goals in roughly two quarters of football in the game that Mule has immortalized on his leg. AFL coach turned commentator Robert Walls called it one of the “greatest halves of football ever played by a striker”.
On Wednesday, Fevlola retweeted the images accompanied by two crying and laughing emojis and a simple one word reaction: ‘amazing’.
The game is remembered as one of Fevola’s best for the Blues, who trailed as many as 48 points before launching the biggest comeback in club history.
Fevola started his eight majors in roughly two quarters, leading commentator and former AFL coach Robert Walls to call him one of the “best football halves ever played by a forward”.
“I hope one day Fevola will be able to sign below and I’ll get her signature tattooed on me to make it permanent,” Mule said of her bizarre tattoo.
The tragic West Australian Blues explained that his devotion to Fevola began when he first saw that 2003 clash at the age of 12.
When his favorite player was traded from Carlton to the Brisbane Lions in 2009 after his infamous drunken antics at the Brownlow Medal ceremony, Mule was heartbroken, saying he ‘struggled at work’ as a result.
Seen here celebrating a goal in 2006, Fevola was known for being brilliant on the pitch, and a magnet for controversy off it.
Since playing his last AFL game in 2010, Fevola (pictured with his daughters and partner Alex) has become a radio personality.
Fevola kicked 575 goals in his 187 games for Carlton from 1999 to 2009, before adding a further 48 majors in his only season with Brisbane.
He wore the number 25 Blues jersey made famous by the legendary Alex Jesaulenko and was brilliant on the pitch and controversial off it during his playing career.
The 41-year-old was nicknamed ‘The Shag’ early in his playing days, sported dreadlocks and was known as a bit of a wild man away from the game.
He won the Coleman Medal as the AFL’s top kicker in 2006, kicked 99 in 2008, just behind Lance Franklin, and won the medal again in 2009.
