One of only three players to win Brownlow Medals at two different clubs, the ruckman struggled with hamstring injuries in his last season at Collingwood and despite being captain was offloaded to the Demons where he rebuilt his career in an often poor side. Having lost four Grand Finals with the Magpies, Moore would never play a final at Melbourne but did lift his second Brownlow Medal in 1984.

He was not the only ex-Brownlow winner to be unveiled by the Demons in 1983, Kelvin Templeton was also lured to Melbourne by big money but despite Moore's success in '84 and a handful of goalkicking performances Templeton neither big money recruit could help lift their side off the bottom of the ladder and despite flashes of brilliance where the side threatened the top five neither would play finals football.

His 22 Brownlow Medal winning games in 1984 were his only full season with the Demons. In his first year he'd missed a month with a fractured jaw suffered in Round 11.

Moore played 16 games again in both 1985 and 1986. He missed six weeks in the middle of 1985 when an old back complaint flared up. After a delayed start to 1987 while he battled a back injury played seven games for the season. He dropped out of the side for the last time just as they began their run to the 1987 finals series and retired late in the year after suffering a hamstring injury at training.

In 1988 Moore returned to Eltham and coached them to a premiership in 1989.
