Tony Brown joined St Kilda from Geelong Falcons and impressed as a hard running, highly determined on-baller. Between 1995 and 2000 he played a total of 108 AFL games for the Saints, kicking 62 goals, but his form dipped markedly towards the end. The 2001 season saw Brown at Port Adelaide Magpies, where he proved a decided acquisition, sharing that season's Magarey Medal with team mate Ryan O'Connor, and going on to give the club five seasons of good service, the last two of them as captain.
