Donald Don played 158 games for Richmond between 1917 and 1928 and was a member of the Tigers' 1920 and 1921 premiership sides. An incident in the 1921 Grand Final in which Carlton's Jack Greenhill was felled saw Don attacked by Blues fans at the end of the match. He led the club's goal-kicking list in 1918 (19 goals) and 1919 (31 goals).
