Over two distinct phases off his career, Paul Broderick gave great service as a prolific ball-winner to Fitzroy and then Richmond over 266 games across 14 seasons. His six seasons with Fitzroy yielded 93 games and 80 goals before he was traded to Richmond for Jeff Hogg. The Tigers undoubtedly got the best of that deal as Broderick played a further 169 matches for them, while Hogg could only manage 40 in the Lions' last three seasons. Broderick's best season was 1996, when he won Richmond's best and fairest award.
