Chris Judd Professional Career
Judd played only one WAFL match before making his debut for West Coast in round 2, 2002. He had an impressive debut season, winning the AFLPA Best First Year Player Award.
In his second season, he alternated between the midfield and forward line and with several dominant performances he finished runner up in the club’s best and fairest. He was appointed as one of the Eagles’ four vice-captains prior to the commencement of the 2004 season.
On 16 September 2007, two days after West Coast’s semi-final elimination by Collingwood, it was announced that Judd had left West Coast and would be requesting a trade to a club in Victoria.He notified West Coast coach John Worsfold and CEO Trevor Nisbett of his intentions earlier that day.As arguably the most talented player in the competition, his departure created much attention and speculation among the Melbourne-based clubs, the media and the football community.
On 11 October 2007, Judd was officially traded to Carlton along with a third round selection in the 2007 AFL Draftfor Carlton’s first and second round selections (No. 3 and 20) and Josh Kennedy, who was reluctant to leave Carlton.Judd was subsequently given the No. 5 guernsey vacated by the trade of Kennedy,and he signed a six-year, $6,000,000 contract with the club.
In 2011, Judd led Carlton to its best season in a decade, helping the team finish 5th at the end of the season, and to record its first finals victory since 2001. He was awarded the Leigh Matthews Trophy for the second time in his career, as well as the AFLPA’s Best Captain Award for the first time.
He was named vice-captain and ruck-rover of the All-Australian team, his fourth consecutive selection.He had entered the Brownlow Medal count as an unbackable favourite, with Sportsbet electing to pay out early after round 20, but he ultimately finished fifth.He played his 200th AFL game during the season.
Following the 2012 season, Judd took on a smaller role in the team, electing to relinquish the captaincy and step down from the leadership group.After his original six-year contract ended at the end of 2013, he began signing single-year contracts in preparation for the end of his career.
In round 10, 2015, he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his left knee and subsequently announced his retirement days later, bringing an end to his 279-game career.After returning to Melbourne to captain the Carlton Football Club, Judd won the John Nicholls Medal as the club’s Best and Fairest three times, and become the fourth player in AFL history to win a Brownlow Medal at more than one club. In August 2021 Judd was elevated into the AFL Hall of Fame.
