About Nathan Brown (Australian footballer, born 1978)
Nathan Gordon Brown (born 10 February 1978) is a radio and television football commentator and a former Australian rules footballer for Richmond and the Western Bulldogs in the AFL.
He played a total of 219 senior AFL matches and kicked 349 goals.
His playing career ended after Richmond told him at the end of 2009, that he would no longer be required as a player.
Recruited from Golden Square and then the Bendigo Pioneers in the TAC Cup to the Western Bulldogs in the AFL, Brown made a name for himself as a dangerous medium-sized forward.
He played with the Bulldogs from 1997 to 2003, and left the club after a more lucrative contract was offered by Richmond.
At the time the Western Bulldogs had asked many of their high profile players to take pay cuts to support the team financially.
