1 Playing statistics to end of Round 5, 2009 season .
Picked by the Adelaide Crows with pick 16 overall in the 2005 AFL Draft, he impressed playing for Glenelg in the SANFL in season 2006 before making his AFL debut in round 21 against cross-town rivals Port Adelaide in the local Showdown. He has developed into a damaging player in the midfield and forward lines, being a regular in Adelaide's first 22.
In June 2009, in the lead-up to Adelaide's clash with North Melbourne, Douglas had a scare when he began displaying symptoms consistent with the swine influenza pandemic, and was quarantined. On the night before the match, the test came back negative; however, he did not play in the match, which Adelaide won comfortably. He returned to play the next match, although he was a shock omission a few weeks later against Fremantle, making way for returning captain Simon Goodwin.
