Rather see a win at all cost mentality.

And grow up and stop inking up. You’re a husband and father, not an alt. art billboard.Actions speak louder than words Joel. Walk the walk first, win some games and start looking like a group of players that want to play for the club, the fans and each other and that would be grand start to proceedings!
so long as there not biting those aforementioned pillows.Not there is anything wrong with that ,,,,as such.Okay now is my time for a bit of a rant, and its not at the players but at our fans here.
Here is what Joel actually said
"It's not easy and I guess the knives are out when you're losing," Thompson told NRL.com after the loss to the Eels.
"People come out looking for things around the players and it doesn't help the situation. It hurts the club, it hurts the playing group and we've just got to stay tight to turn it around ... the fans deserve better, people at the club deserve better, the staff deserve better and it's on us players to deliver that.
"We've got to dig ourselves out of this through hard work and by sticking together. Media and people are out there with knives and they want to attack the club.
"We've just got to stick together and that siege mentality will help us come out of it. There's been enough talk and enough players talking, me included. Now we've got to deliver with our actions."
* Knives are out when you are losing
* we've just got to stay tight to turn it around ... the fans deserve better, people at the club deserve better, the staff deserve better and it's on us players to deliver that.
* We've got to dig ourselves out of this through hard work and by sticking together.

So Joel is not picking up the phone to call the media, players get interviewed, that is part of their job, he is acknowledging they are not doing well and they are letting the fans down. Acknowledging they have to work harder and actually states THAT THE TIME FOR TALK IS OVER..
Then we get some of our overly emotive morons on this site laying into him saying the time for talk is over and that they need to deliver with actions..............
I honestly don't know what people expect here.........our whole club to refuse interviews?
Maybe start supporting the club in the tough times, that is the measure of a fan, not the fair weather bunch we have crying into our pillows here
