Darren Gaspar played 228 games for Sydney and Richmond between 1994 and 2007. The number 1 draft pick in 1993, Gaspar debuted at the Sydney Swans in 1994 before moving to the Richmond Football Club in 1996. Although not a spectacular player, he had been a consistent performer in defence for the Tigers. Gaspar received his first All Australian selection after a consistent year 2000 and improved on this in 2001. In 2001 he won the Jack Dyer Medal as Richmond's Best and Fairest Player and also an All Australian selection. He announced his retirement on 4 May 2007, playing out the rest of that season before hanging up the boots.

He is the brother of fellow AFL players Travis Gaspar and Damien Gaspar.
