Born on February 8, 1977, Barry Hall is a 45-year-old former professional Australian rules footballer who played for the St Kilda Football Club, Sydney Swans, and Western Bulldogs in the Australian Football League (AFL).
He is regarded as one of the finest forwards of the contemporary period, having been selected All-Australian on eleven occasions, leading his club’s goalkicking on eleven occasions, and captaining the Sydney Swans to victory in the 2005 AFL Grand Final.
Hall made history in July 2011 when he became the first player in AFL history to score 100 goals for three different teams.
Hall began his career with the St Kilda Football Club, where he led the club in goalkicking twice, in 1999 and 2001.
His career with the Sydney Swans is his most well-known accomplishment.
He was one of the finest players for the Swans during his tenure there, leading the club in goalkicking from 2002 to 2008 and co-captaining the side from 2005 to 2007, including the club’s first premiership in a decade in 2005.
He was also widely featured in the AFL’s marketing in Sydney, garnering a comparable high-profile as Tony Lockett, who was included in the “Barry Hall Hall” joint campaign with the AFL and the Swans in 2006.
The former junior boxing champion’s AFL career was hampered by a reputation for on-field aggressiveness, earning him the moniker “football wild man” and establishing him as one of the game’s most feared players.
Several high-profile events (dubbed “brain snaps” by the media) and tribunal appearances have disrupted his career and led to a switch of teams.
