Burly, tough and resolute, Barry Cheatley gave North Melbourne sound service as a defender in 81 VFL games between 1959 and 1964. His subsequent term as the club's marketing director during its rise to pre-eminence in the early 1970s arguably represented an even more important contribution to the Kangaroos' cause.
