Originally selected by Greater Western Sydney with the third pick in the 2011 Draft, the tall midfielder played 13 games in his first season and was nominated for the Rising Star award, but suffered a knee injury before 2013 and was restricted to three matches.

Looking to boost their midfield the Demons swapped picks for Tyson, while also receiving selections in return. For the cost of dropping down seven places in the draft and giving up pick 20 they got a player known to be exceptional around stoppages and has a unique ability to find a gap in traffic who is strong overhead, and who has good touch and depth with his kicking.

Despite only having played 13 games in his first two seasons Tyson quickly took a key role in Melbourne's rebuilt midfield and played every match in his debut season with the club.

Tyson suffered reduced form in his second year with the Demons, also battling injury during the season before rebounding in 2016 to play all but one game and once again be one of the side's most important midfielders.
