Danny Guinane began and ended his Richmond career in flag-winning seasons, but he had the misfortune never to play in a premiership side. He had yet to establish himself in the senior side when the Tigers overcame South Melbourne in the 1934 Grand Final, while nine years later, when Essendon was vanquished, he had fallen out of favour. In between, however, he enjoyed an excellent, 102-game VFL career as a dashing and clever defender. His son Paddy Guinane also played for Richmond.
