AFL career[edit]

A Norwood recruit, Patterson was used mostly as a rover at Collingwood. He also played at half forward or as a wingman on occasions and kicked 25 goals in 1996. Patterson gathered three Brownlow Medal votes from Collingwood's win over North Melbourne in the final home and away match of the 1997 season. The following year, in 'The ANZAC Day clash' against Essendon, Patterson was voted Best on Ground after 24 disposals. His performances in the 1998 season saw him finish the year third in Collingwood's Copeland Trophy voting.

He was the first player to kick a goal against Port Adelaide Power.
