Scott Wynd overcame serious knee problems to become, for a time, one of the most formidable ruckmen in the game. The highlight of his 237-game V/AFL career between 1988 and 2000 came in 1992 when he won the Brownlow Medal. The same season saw him achieve AFL All Australian selection, as well as land the Footscray best and fairest award for the one and only time in his career.

From 1994 to 2000, Wynd captained the Bulldogs and was widely acknowledged as one of the finest on-field leaders in the business. In 2002 he was named on the interchange bench in the Western Bulldogs' official 'Team of the Twentieth Century'.
