John Raymond "Jack" Dyer Sr. OAM (15 November 1913 – 23 August 2003), also known as Captain Blood (see below), was a prominent figure in Australian rules football. OAM (15 November 1913 – 23 August 2003), also known as Captain Blood (see below), was a prominent figure in Australian rules football, as both a player and coach of the Richmond Football Club in the Victorian Football League between 1931 and 1952, and later as a broadcaster and journalist.

Many were now prepared to concede that Dyer was the most valuable player in the game. Balmain's painting also appears on the front cover of Brian Hansen's 1996 book, "The Jack Dyer Story: The Legend of Captain Blood". But the number of on-field incidents grew and after a particularly torrid game during 1935, a newspaper cartoonist drew a picture of Dyer as a pirate and a journalist dubbed him 'Captain Blood' after an Errol Flynn movie of the same name. The name quickly stuck. Initially, Dyer was furious at the connotation and the implied slur on his sportsmanship.
