Hall kicked his 600th career goal against the Western Bulldogs in Round 10, 2009, when he kicked six in that game.
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 was born in Victoria and grew up in Broadford, where he played his junior football. At the age of 12 he moved to Melbourne to pursue a boxing career. After playing for the Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup and attracting the eye of talent scouts, he decided to focus on football. He helped fill the void of the record-breaking forward Tony Lockett, who had moved to the Swans the previous season.
In spite of the Swans' 39-point defeat to the reigning premiers he was the leading goalkicker for the game.
In 2008 Hall was awarded the Paul Roos Award for the best player in the finals.
After a striking incident involving Adelaide's Ben Rutten in his 250th game, Hall was put under an immense amount of pressure from coach Paul Roos to leave the club.
