Born and raised in Hobart Tasmania. In 1997 at the tender age of 17 years of age Brodie was drafted into the AFL system
at pick 26 to the Fremantle Football Club.
At the end of 2000 was traded off to the famous Collingwood Football Club after just 36 games for the Dockers.
Brodie played a further 8 seasons finishing with 155 games
and 146 goals. Highlights of his career were a Grand Final appearance in 2003 and finishing 2nd in the Copeland Trophy (Best and Fairest) in 2005.
Brodie became a popular Club person after many off field media appearances, modelling campaigns & a successful
stint on Dancing With The Stars in 2005.
Unfortunately Brodie succumbed to serious achilles injury
that pushed him out of the game in 2008
and was forced into retirement at 28.
Brodie also has strongly supported many charitable foundations during and after his playing days including
'Save a Dog Scheme'
and 'The Salvation Army'
And looks forward to the new challenge of supporting
The Shaun Miller Foundation
which is very close to his heart.
