Brodie Martin Biography

Saturday, 10 October 2015
After being delisted by Adelaide, Brodie Martin is training hard in a bid to revive his AFL career.
His manager Michael Doughty said the South Australian was open to resuming his career away from Adelaide, and potentially as a rookie.

"It was reported he said he wouldn't be interested [in a rookie spot] but I think he was misquoted," Doughty said.

"I think he'll definitely look at it.

"If it's on an AFL list, it's still a good opportunity and you only need a couple of injuries and you find yourself back on the main list."

Adelaide delists restricted free agent Brodie Martin along with rookies Anthony Wilson and Jack Osborn.

"I'd like to thank Brodie, Sam, Anthony and Jack for their contributions," Crows head of football David Noble said.

"It's a difficult time of year, saying goodbye to quality young men who have been part of our club for a period of time, and in Brodie's case the past eight years.

"We wish all of the boys the very best for the future."

Wednesday, 22 October 2014
Brodie Martin has been rewarded for his breakout 2014 season with a new one-year contract.

Martin played 17 games this year, 10 more than he managed in 2012 - his previous best season.

He averaged almost 16 possessions a game this year and kicked eight goals.

"Brodie was able to find some consistency and grew in confidence as the year went on," Crows head of football David Noble said.

"We are looking for him to take his game to another level in 2015."

Brodie Martin has become a regular in the Crows' side in 2014 but says he still has to work hard to keep his spot.

"I'm not comfortable, that's for sure, there are plenty of blokes who could come in and play my role…I'm always going to be looking over my shoulder," Martin said.

"I'd like to be a bit more relaxed and I'm probably getting to that stage now where I'm not actually thinking about next week so much before the game.

"I've played the sub numerous time and I'd be sitting on the bench and all I've been thinking about is getting a game next week."

Wednesday, 29 August 2012
Adelaide signs young midfielder Brodie Martin for a further two years.

"Brodie has played some outstanding football in the SANFL and also shown some good signs at AFL level," Adelaide football operations manager Phil Harper said.

"We think he can develop into an excellent player for us and we are pleased he wants to be part of our playing group for at least the next couple of years."

Martin said committing to the club was an easy decision.

"It's hard to go past the list we've got at the moment, and the success we've had this year. And Adelaide's home for me, so it was a no-brainer for me to stay," Martin told the RAA Crows News Update.

"We're a young group and all get along really well. 'Sando' coming in this year also brings that young vibe. He understands the players real well and, together, we're trying to strive towards the same goal."

Dashing half-back Brodie Martin is cleared of major damage to his reconstructed left knee after a practice match against Carlton last weekend.

"I didn't have too many good thoughts going through my head and [the thought of] spending another 12 months in rehab wasn't ideal ... but I never felt anything pop like I did last time, so there was still a little glimmer of hope," Martin said.

"It [all happened in] less than 24 hours. I thought I was going to miss another 12 months of footy, but then I got the good news and now I'm ready to get back out there and put my hand up for round one."

Monday, 7 March 2011
Adelaide's Brodie Martin has been cleared of a serious knee injury after fearing he would need a second reconstruction.

"It's great news for us and Brodie, but particularly Brodie," said Phil Harper, Crows football operations general manager.

"He was obviously distraught on Friday night but then the scans were done and the ACL appeared fine. Hopefully he will be back training next week."

Saturday, 5 March 2011
Promising Adelaide wingman Brodie Martin has received a morale boost after scans on his injured knee proved inconclusive.

Martin had feared he would require another knee reconstruction after injuring his knee in a practice match against Carlton.

"The scans were inconclusive, so we will have to wait until Monday when Brodie sees the specialist," Crows football operations manager Phil Harper said.

"But at the moment we all have higher hopes than we did after the game on Friday."

Tuesday, 19 January 2010
Adelaide's Brodie Martin is tracking well when comparing his rehabilitation from a knee reconstruction to teammate Brett Burton.

"He's a bit more advanced than Brett Burton was at the same time, which is pretty impressive considering how Brett came back. Brodie started running a while ago, but he's starting to get up some speed now and he's looking pretty sharp," Crows physical performance manager Stephen Schwerdt.

Martin played two games in 2009 which he says helped him with being promoted to the senior list for the Crows.

"If there was an upside to doing my knee it was that I did it in a Showdown playing at the highest level and not while I was running around for Sturt in the SANFL because who knows what would've happened," Martin said.

Friday, 31 July 2009
Adelaide coach Neil Craig says there are no guarantees injured rookie Brodie Martin will be offered a contract next season but that Martin's performances in two games this year would hold him in good stead when the club assesses his position.

"Brodie is obviously disappointed as a young guy who's come from nowhere really," Craig said.

"Without giving anyone any guarantees - we can't because we don't know what's going to happen until the end of the year - he couldn't have done any more under the circumstances which he now finds himself in.

"He wouldn't be lying in bed saying, 'God, I wish I could've played a couple of games and showed something'. He's given himself he best opportunity to stay on our list."

Tuesday, 28 July 2009
Adelaide's Brodie Martin requires a full knee reconstruction after landing awkwardly against Port Adelaide.

"The knee was swollen on Monday morning and very sore, prompting further investigation with an X-ray and MRI scan," Adelaide club doctor Andrew Potter said.

"There was no evidence during the game as to the extent of the injury. The knee felt stable, he was able to run, and Brodie told us he felt okay. It is quite unusual for a player to be able to continue to play with this sort of injury."

Monday, 20 July 2009
Brodie Martin's debut was one of the few bright lights for the Crows during their tough game against St Kilda with the young midfielder tallying 16 disposals and kicked a goal.

Martin was a late call-up to replace Robert Shirley who was omitted from the side due to suffering from the flu.

"You don't know what to expect, I mean everyone tells you how hard and how fast it's going to be, but to get the first one under my belt feels pretty good," Martin said.

"I felt pretty good coming out actually. I think when I was a kid I used to get pretty nervous before races at school and stuff like that, but that's pretty much gone now. I was probably more anxious just to get out there and show what I can do."

Adelaide coach Neil Craig was pleased with Martin's debut performance.

"For our supporters that's a plus for us out of the game; they get to see another player and I actually thought he did some really, really good things," Craig said.

"I was really pleased for Brodie. That would have been a really tough initiation to come into his first AFL game when we couldn't get much control.

"I thought he showed some speed, some understanding and some good execution in a game where there was that sort of pressure."
