After the 2006 AFL season, it was speculated in the media that Patfull was enticed to return to Adelaide by the Adelaide Crows and Port Adelaide Power, however his manager announced in mid-November that Patfull had accepted a two-year contract to continue his career with the Brisbane Lions. While not a flashy player, Patfull's discipline and work ethic have made him a respected player amongst Brisbane supporters.
