Cameron Mooney Biography

Wednesday, 27 March 2013
Ayce Cordy has the luxury of being mentored by two greats in Cameron Mooney and Chris Grant.

"He's got me in the ring a couple of times, and smacked me around the head just to teach me a bit of sense," Cordy said about Mooney.

"He's really big on trying to keep your confidence up and just doing the right things, always, one after the other, and good things will happen."

"He's definitely a legend at this football club and definitely a legend throughout the AFL," Cordy then said about Grant.

"You look at blokes like him, but you're not going to try and be Chris Grant, because you know everyone wants to be Chris Grant. You take bits and pieces from them."

Ex-Geelong stars Matthew Scarlett and Cameron Mooney have joined the Western Bulldogs as specialist coaches.

"The younger players, in particular, are so excited to have (Scarlett and Mooney) here ... the one thing you can't have is too many good people in a footy club," Bulldogs list manager Jason McCartney said.

"Both Matt and Cam are good friends of mine ... and are probably putting their toe in the water (to see) if coaching interests them."

Cameron Mooney expresses doubt that Israel Folau will ever make it in the AFL.

"All year I've been telling people to relax, it'll take time, but the more I watch the more I think, Israel, you're not for our game," Mooney said.

GWS coach Kevin Sheedy fires back at Cameron Mooney via twitter.

"A little seagull dropped in with a few morsels re Cameron Mooney v Israel Folau. Had some interesting stats on Mooney's first year in AFL," Sheedy began.

"Mooney's average disposals in first year for NM in 1999 were 3.3 compared to Izzy 5.9 in his first year

"Mooney had 29 hit-outs and took 14 marks in 1999. Izzy has had 61 hit-outs and taken 20 marks so far this year

"All this in a side that has won two games as opposed to a premiership. By my calculations Izzy has had a better debut year than Mooney."

Thursday, 8 December 2011
Geelong coach Chris Scott has revealed he had many doubts when he selected Tom Hawkins over Cam Mooney for the finals.

"It was either 'Moons' or 'Hawk', and I wasn't convinced 'Hawk' would do a better job," Scott said in a new book titled 'Greatness - Inside Geelong's Path to Premiership History'.

"But taking into account 100 different factors we decided to go with Hawk, not with any great confidence that we'd made the right decision."

Thursday, 29 September 2011
Cameron Mooney expresses sadness at not being picked in Geelong's side to play Collingwood in the 2011 Grand Final.

"It's been a bit of a tough week and it's actually been a tough month to watch the boys play in the finals knowing that I was such a big part of it over the past few years," Mooney said.

"Not being involved has been really tough - (it's) probably been the hardest part of my career."

Wednesday, 24 August 2011
Cameron Mooney announces his retirement and says he hopes to win a premiership with Geelong this year to cap off his career.

"There's maybe a couple of other boys who may be doing this in a couple of weeks, so it would be nice if a few of us went out with another one (premiership)," Mooney said.

"I've been quite fortunate and very proud to be at a football club that I absolutely love and adore. I'd encourage any young boy to just work his butt off to get to a football club, and if you're lucky you'll get to Geelong footy club."

Saturday, 4 June 2011
Geelong coach Chris Scott says Cameron Mooney's career could be over as the as the forward battles a chronic knee injury.

"We've got to be honest and deal in reality and there's a chance that he may not come good," Scott said.

"That's plain for everyone to see. But he's going to have a red-hot crack at it and do his very best to be available at the end of the season, and that's what we expect to happen."

Rookie-list player James Podsiadly is a genuine contender for this year's Coleman Medal after kicking 17 goals so far up to round 7, according to teammate Cameron Mooney.

"I'd love to see him right up there, but it's a tough call in your first year of AFL footy to be talking Coleman Medals," Mooney said.

Mooney says Podsiadly not being selected in the side for the first two rounds has actually benefited him.

"I'm glad that Pods didn't come in, in the first practice game, and kick five, because everyone would have just carried on and he might have got a little bit ahead of himself," Mooney said.

"Because he found it so hard the first few weeks, I think that really grounded him and really made him think that it's not as easy as it looks or as he thought. And now he's getting the chocolates."

Cameron Mooney says a visit to a psychologist helped him overcome the goalkicking yips.

"It really was doing my head in and I felt like I was really letting the team down a lot with easy shots on goal that I was missing, so I went and sought some advice outside of footy," Mooney said.

"At times I maybe could have gone for a mark inside 50 but I didn't go for it because I didn't want the shot on goal, but I just want the shot on goal now."

Cameron Mooney is close to being Geelong's most important player, says coach Mark Thompson.

"He understands and is a leader of the forward line," Thompson said.

"He understands exactly what the coaches are trying to implement, and all our set-ups, and he's such a fantastic player.

"He's almost the most important player that we couldn't afford to lose."

Monday, 22 June 2009
Geelong coach Mark Thompson has challenged unpredictable spearhead Cameron Mooney to lift his game ahead of the finals.

Thompson said his big forward was experiencing issues with both confidence and his goalkicking technique.

"I don't really know what's going on with Cam's head at all," Thompson said.

"I just spoke to him and just said look, it's probably not right that he misses them.

"But we've got 10 weeks before the finals start and we'd really want to go into a finals series having his routine set and having his confidence levels OK so that he kicks goals he should kick."

Saturday, 23 May 2009
The Geelong coach says the absence of forward Cameron Mooney through suspension could have cost his side the game.

"I would have done something really brave if we'd have lost the game. Maybe I should do it anyway, I should really have a go at Cameron Mooney because we did miss him enormously," Thompson said.

"To go out with a silly thing like that, it could have cost the club. Lucky it wasn't a knockout final but if it was, it would be disastrous because he's so important to us."

"It is a lot of ticks but at the end of the day if I go, or stay here at Geelong, when I retire from football I'll be moving up there.

"I'll be 30-31 and who knows what they're after, but I love Geelong so who knows."
