Yep. Brisbane 2013.I always liked it when he was in the team
Gave 100% at every contest
Still remember him missing a goal from the goal square down in Tassie one year though!
He was a victim of bad timingI really felt that Cheney wasn't given an opportunity to grow within the team. His longest stretch of consecutive games was in 2015 as a Brian Lake replacement playing on guys like Franklin (lol) rather than a running half-back. Despite giving away more than 10cm on his direct opponent I always thought he was reliable and fit the Clarkson model well. Unfortunately our Premiership 22 was just so strong. Shame he wasn't really given a chance both at Hawthorn and Adelaide (I've heard rumours that Don Pyke didn't like him).
Always liked Cheney. Nothing wrong with his career achievements of course, but reckon he was stiff to play 80-odd when Zac Dawson played 200-odd; I know which I preferred to see in the jumper.Good hand, Kyle Cheney. Dominated the VFL when outside the Hawks. Always wished him well.
166, but I 100% agree. 152 under Ross - he definitely saw something the rest of us didn't. Cheney every time for me. You trusted him with ball in hand.Always liked Cheney. Nothing wrong with his career achievements of course, but reckon he was stiff to play 80-odd when Zac Dawson played 200-odd; I know which I preferred to see in the jumper.
I didn't mind Cheney, was given some pretty tough tasks when with us and did ok.He was a victim of bad timing
Right place, wrong time
I thought this article/interview was a ripper.Jon Hay is starting to turn it around after 15 years in a downward spiral talking about "how he is ready to be a “better husband, a better father” and an ambassador for The Male Hug, a mental health awareness organisation giving him a new purpose in life."
He played a belter of a game against Carlton at Princes Park maybe in 99 or 2000. Was the first time I saw him live.I thought this article/interview was a ripper.
I knew all this info way back but it’s great he has owned up to it and working his way through it and out the other side.
Such a shame as he was a ripper from 99 until the end of 2001 and then his onfield performance just completely dropped away and I guess this now finally clears the air a bit.
Yes that game was a ripper.He played a belter of a game against Carlton at Princes Park maybe in 99 or 2000. Was the first time I saw him live.
Played off a wing kicked a few, disposal was a bit iffy but destroyed them.
Was such a shame how it ended , he was such a shell of that player . Glad he has started moving in the right direction with his life .
You sound like 63 thousand disgruntled fathers who think their kid is better than what they are and annoy the sh*t out of coaches and committee folk with conspiracy theories.
Story from Thomo.
I had to laugh at the comment about "no silver spoon treatment" his boy Louis looks like getting a big lick of the silver spoon from the pioneers, not forgetting being coached or assistant coached by his old man just about every year. Yes Louis can play a bit but so many of his ilk have either given up or won't get the same look in.
From firsthand experience, he doesn't offer much other than his name.You sound like 63 thousand disgruntled fathers who think their kid is better than what they are and annoy the sh*t out of coaches and committee folk with conspiracy theories.
FWIW, Thomo wasn't exactly rocking the world as a youngster, for that matter Dustin Martin was nothing more than average until 14 or 15 - some develop earlier and some develop later.
For sure Louis is receiving a great footy education, but so are the senior, reserve and Under 18 players at Kyneton that Nathan is coaching.
Thomo bleeds Kyneton and I have massive respect for his contribution. If Kyneton was just broke it probably would be a massive weight off many minds, the fact that they managed to accumulate a 200k debt so soon after going into a recess......personally I find that unfathonable.From firsthand experience, he doesn't offer much other than his name.
Edit. Nice people the Thompsons, Kyneton are flat broke, they were even before covid so credit to Nathan for taking it on.
