Don was an amazing character in the league. He and Tie Domi were really good friends and I remember one or two exhibition games where Matthews dressed Domi and had him kick the point after to raise money for charity.

Dammit I love the CFL!!


Years: 1996, 1997
Games Played: 2 (pre-season)
Best known for his time spent as an NHL tough guy, former Toronto Maple Leaf winger Tie Domi traded in his skates for football cleats during the ’96 and ’97 pre-seasons. Sporting his familiar number 28, Domi booted field goals for the Argos as a part of a fundraising effort for a local charity.
