Re: Origins of sayings - unsure how much is true

Mario Fenech was NRL player of Maltese heritage, and was AKA the Falcon. He was struck on the head by the ball, (in a comical fashion) and the “falcon” was born. The real sad part is that Fenech is actually suffering from the onset of CTE right now. He has significant brain damage from his years pl...
