Gutherson admitted the drawn-out contract talks and the ensuing media coverage have been distracting.

However, he believes the contractual uncertainty for him and a host of teammates isn't the reason for Parramatta's on-field inconsistency.

"It is [a distraction]. But we're professional athletes – it comes with playing and that's the way it is," he said.

"... There are a lot of us off-contract, it's not just me. The club's handling it the way they've got to handle it and everyone's manager is doing it their way.

The Eels' latest proposal was for three seasons and Gutherson desires four.

"It was never about the money," he declared.

"There's been a lot of figures out there that aren't true.

"I'm at that age; I want a bit of security. I want to settle down and try and set my life up and play some good footy and know where I'm going to be playing footy."

The eighth-placed Eels are out to make amends for an embarrassing 64-10 defeat to Melbourne when they play North Queensland on Saturday.

Gutherson said the team aren't dwelling on the crushing loss and have turned their attention to beating the Cowboys in Townsville.

"We're past that. We've moved on and we've got another tough challenge this weekend against North Queensland up there," he said.

"Look, we've had another good week of training and we've just got to go up there and change it."
