His family has been in discussions with AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan and AFL legal chief Stephen Meade regarding compensation.

Daniel rejected an offer of $800,000 in a separate process, with his father Peter Venables saying: They have offered us a payout but we haven’t accepted it.

‘It’s not enough and they also want to tax it. I am paying for Daniel to live. My wife and I are looking after him.

‘We are not letting go of this, this is wrong. We ain’t going anywhere. The wall is coming down.’
