Billy Brownless enjoyed a stellar AFL career for over ten years with the Geelong Football Club. A powerful forward, he finished his career third on Geelong's all-time goal-kicking list behind Gary Ablett and Doug Wade. He established himself as a target at full forward during the Cats' free-scoring years of the late '80s and early '90s.
It was in 1991 that Billy firmly established himself as one of Geelong's most important players, helping to fill the void left by the retired Gary Ablett by bagging 81 goals. His efforts were rewarded with All-Australian selection.
Despite reaching the Grand Final on four occasions, going particularly close in the 1989 epic against Hawthorn, Billy Brownless. In the final few years of his career, he was forced to battle several injuries and at the end of the 1997 season, he announced his retirement, ending the career of one of Geelong's most effervescent characters.
Since retiring, Billy Brownless has furthered his position as one of the game's most likeable blokes with an active media career featuring on such high-profile programs as Channel 9's The Footy Show and Sunday Footy Show and Triple M Melbourne's The Rush Hour with James Brayshaw, in addition to commentary and hosting duties on AFL coverage.
