Early Life and Childhood
Chris was born the sixth child of James "Jim" Daniher and Edna Daniher (née Erwin) on 31 March 1966 at West Wyalong Base Hospital. Chris attended St Joseph's Catholic School, Ungarie for his primary education before going to Ungarie Central School until year ten, after which he became a farmer.
It was during his childhood that Chris showed his love for sport, namely Australian rules football, playing in the Northern Riverina Football League (NRFL) on Saturdays while playing rugby league at school carnivals. It was during his time in the NRFL that Chris won many best & fairest awards before he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in December 1984. After Chris recovered from this injury, he played for Ariah Park-Mirrool and later Coolamon in the Riverina Football League before he was approached by the Essendon Football Club to play for them in 1986.

“The conviction that the best way to prepare children for a harsh, rapidly changing world is to introduce formal instruction at an early age is wrong. There is simply no evidence to support it, and considerable evidence against it. Starting children early academically has not worked in the past and is not working now.”
—David Elkind (20th century)
