Lovett was recruited to the Melbourne Under 19s in 1986. He lived in the Sydney residential zone but ignored invitations to their junior squads. When VFL rules changed to make unlisted players free agents he chose to go to the team he'd followed as a kid. In 1986 he also played Teal Cup for Victoria and Reserves games, before making his senior debut in 1987.

After two games in his rookie season, Lovett missed all of 1988, and added just five games in 1989. It took until 1991 to cement his spot in the side, playing as a wingman and half-back, but his poor run with injuries continued, a broken wrist ended his season after Round 15. The next two years were his best, winning the 1992 Best and Fairest, then finishing second the following year. In 1993, now playing as an on-baller, he played for Victoria.

Injuries struck Lovett again in 1994, with hamstring and back trouble keeping him out of pre-season and restricting him to 11 games. He played 47 games over the next three years, but hamstring injuries meant he only played once each in 1998 and 1999, retiring midway through the season.
