    A few comments on the list changes page, but I reckon Cheney deserves his own page recognising and sending him off. A reliable defender that I thought was that quarterback that was composed and solid when he was up and about. Great overhead, decent speed and the guy I always wanted to have the ball passed to when the defence was on edge.

    Will always remember the job he did on Danger a couple of seasons back when the Vic commentators salivated that Danger would destroy us. Fetta shut him down and outmarked him all night.

    Best of luck to the fella, got the utmost out of his AFL time.

    I reckon Cheney’s a victim of list management more so than a lack of talent. His best is good enough for AFL, though a few factors that make him liable to be cut this year:
    - age
    - competition for spots (Smith returning next year, Milera gaining form, Kelly still has potential upside)
    - Superdraft year and lots of local talent

    Hope he gets given another chance somewhere else. Good luck to him!

    He's a far better player than Kelly. If Kelly wasn't contracted I think Cheney would've stayed on the list.

    I always thought Cheney was AFL standard and was good for depth. I hope he gets another crack.

    Is borderline best 22. Quite surprised at this.

    Hopefully we redraft him or another club takes him.

    Surely he will find a home. Is too good to retire just yet

    Really hoping we re-draft him, even as a rookie potentially, or else our depth of medium defenders who can ACTUALLY defend is looking a bit grim. Was always handy because he could play on medium to small, and loose also. Definitely deserves another shot.

    With all the shit players on Ports list, they should give this guy a shot. They wont regret it like "Whats, Slops and Rocks".

    Solid reliable defender.

    From memory, Kelly is supposed to have excellent fitness, so he has the potential to play midfield roles eg. wing/tagger.
    Also, Kelly is still only 23. Players can still improve at this age, which I’m hopeful to see next year.

    Never say that again. Kelly is a utterly useless wing option.

    Wingers, or outside midfielders in general need to be quick, can accumulate and have damn fine skills. Otherwise you're wasting your time.

    I would have given him another year. Surprising decision.

    Would have prioritised him above Otten. Thought he was genuinely good upon his return to our team later in the year.

    Maybe wait until the draft is over first?

    Must re-draft as a rookie if he's still available.

    I would rerookie him. There is still inconsistency in our back seven.

    I think he was unlucky. Competitive and lots of talent. Injuries might have been a contributing factor. I hope he gets rookied.

    I always loved Cheney in the team. He was hard at it, reliable and great in the one on one contest. And I am pissed off he’s gone.
    I won’t be surprised if he gets picked up by a fourth club.
