While he had played several seasons at the St Kilda Football Club, Hall is best known for his playing career at the Sydney Swans AFL club, where he has been a prolific goalkicker and onfield leader who has captained the side on numerous occassions.

Nicknamed "Big, Bad, Bustling Barry Hall" by media and football fans alike, Hall was a prominent junior boxer but decided to focus on a career in Australian rules football. His onfield aggression earned him a reputation as a football "wild man" and seen him involved in several controversial and highly publicized incidents and tribunal appearances. The nicknames date back to the mid-late 1990s. Sandy Roberts during the Seven Network's AFL coverage would often use the term to describe Hall's uncompromising approach to opposition back men.
