Ironically, he left the year before Brian Waldron was appointed the club's CEO.
Hall joined the Swans for the 2002 season and prospered under the coaching of Paul Roos.
He left St Kilda at the end of 2001 in style, kicking a goal after the final siren of a Round 22 match against Hawthorn to win the match.
One of the main reasons for leaving was the rise of Nick Riewoldt, Justin Koschitzke and the recruitment of Fraser Gehrig, as well as salary cap constraints.
Several controversial and highly publicised incidents (often called "brain snaps" by the media) and tribunal appearances have interrupted his career and contributed to a change of clubs.
Hall called a press conference on 7 July 2009 to announce that he was no longer going to play for the Swans.
His most memorable performance for the Saints was his 3-goal burst during a five-minute period in the second quarter of the AFL 1997 Grand Final, in which put his side in a strong position going into half time, despite St.
Kilda going on to be defeated by the Adelaide Crows by 31 points at the MCG.
He kicked four goals in his last game for the club.
On his Bulldogs' debut, in the second round of the 2010 NAB Cup, he kicked six goals against Hawthorn.
Hall's form reached a high in 2004 when he was named in the All-Australian Team.
