Brad Dodd (born 23 May 1977) is a former Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Dodd was originally rookie drafted by the Fremantle Football Club in 1997 AFL Draft from East Fremantle in the West Australian Football League (WAFL) and was elevated to the senior list in 1998, where he made his debut against Melbourne in round 1 of that season. Dodd played 20 out of a possible 22 games in his debut season, finishing the year with nine goals. In 1999 he played just six games, before playing 20 games again in 2000, kicking 10 goals.

Dodd played his last AFL game against Richmond at Subiaco Oval in round 10, 2001, when he suffered an injury to his knee, requiring a reconstruction. He played 50 games over four seasons at the club and although he remained on the team list during the 2002 AFL season, he was delisted after not playing a game in 2002.

Dodd famously knocked out West Coast Eagles player Phillip Read in a Western Derby, dubbed the "Demolition Derby" in Round 21, 2000. After seeing Read attack some of his teammates, Dodd took one punch to knock out Read, becoming known as "One Punch Dodd".[1]

After Fremantle, he signed on to play with Claremont in the WAFL, helping the team reach the grand final in 2003, but lost to South Fremantle, with Dodd being sent off after being reported twice in the game. He retired at the end of the 2005 WAFL season.[1]

He is the cousin of former Dockers player, Steven Dodd.
