Shame - I don't think we ever saw the best of him.

Wants to get away from $BW.

Understandable.

He will do well if he can stay fit :( Always thought he showed promise.

I have watched him at two trial matches and both times he copped very bad injuries. I hope he has better luck at a new club.

Mixed feelings on Cherrington. Feel sorry for the guy that his footy career has been almost ruined due to injury, he does have some talent.
On the other hand I have zero tolerance for men who think the are man enough that they can assault women. Was never comfortable keeping him on since that happened.

I'd forgotten about that.

That lessens the sting of losing him.

Unlike the other players, he accepted responsibility for what he did and has managed to turn his life around to his credit. He's a roosters junior and considering we stuck with him through his worst, we probably should have kept him.

Hmm, as a pure business call - he hasn't delivered on the investment the club has made. When does the club stop chasing the payday? Seems pretty clear it's when they see an opportunity like O'Donnell.

All that being said - I wish him well, everyone makes mistakes, and he sure has had a rotten run with injuries.

I see it the other way. The club has invested many years in development and rehab, only to release him once fit

The clubs actions indicate that's not how they see it. Anyway - its done now. Hope O'Donnell is worth it, I used to have a big opinion of him when he was earning Kangaroo spots.
