Former AFL player agent Ricky Nixon has opened up about the substance issues that caused him to spiral from the league's most high-profile agent to deregistration.

At his peak, Nixon's agency Flying Start was the home to some of the AFL's biggest names including Wayne Carey, Gary Ablett Sr, Jason Dunstall and Tony Lockett.

Nixon's influence around the league was so powerful, that he once told AFL bosses, "I run the competition, not you" after being questioned about a deal to land one of his players extra money.

"I won't go into huge detail here, but I went into a hotel room and I shouldn't have," he said.

"I shouldn't have done it. My (ex) wife has never asked me what I did wrong. She just said, 'You stuffed up Ricky, do something about it'."

Nixon revealed that he had already begun travelling down a troubled path years before the schoolgirl scandal, a path which was kick-started by the shock death of popular AFL commentator Clinton Grybas back in 2008.

"(After Grybas' death) I started drinking, I had never done drugs in my life. I started doing cocaine, and I got addicted," he said.

"I had got to a point where I was working seven days a week, 15 hour days. I wasn't watching my sons play footy. I was going to eight games of footy every weekend.

"I felt that I just didn't show (Grybas) the respect or management, I suppose."

With Nixon's life teetering on the edge, he revealed that a phone call from Collingwood legend Peter Moore "absolutely" saved his life.

"I had 347 missed calls that day. I got this call from Peter (Moore) and when I think back (I wonder), 'Why did I answer it?'," he said.

"I will tell you why, because he was above me.

"I was told in no uncertain terms by Peter Moore, 'You've got to make a decision, Rick, what's more important, your kids or the drugs?'.

"Peter changed me that day, he sent me to a doctor and I got out of denial."
