Brisbane Broncos captain Alex Glenn has revealed some of his teammates have received death threats after the club slumped to five straight NRL losses.

An emotional Glenn told a media conference in Brisbane this morning he had thrown his support behind teammates in the lead-up to Saturday's match with the Warriors after witnessing vile social media abuse.

"Certain teammates are getting death threats on social media. People can have their judgments, but that is not acceptable," he said.

"I am a big ambassador on mental health. No-one should be told to go do something harmful to themselves for the way they are playing."

The Broncos' decline is no laughing matter

  The Broncos' decline is no laughing matter The vision of some of the Brisbane Broncos’ players having a laugh after their fifth consecutive loss to the Gold Coast Titans clearly got under the skin of some Broncos legends and fans, and justifiably so. The bewildering thing is that this isn’t an isolated case so it begs the question, where has the win-at-all-costs mentality gone for some of the players? Sure, it’s easy for people to say that it’s only a game, it’s not life or death. But for those players who are fiercely competitive and have a burning desire to win, losing isn’t an option for them.

Alarm bells are ringing in Brisbane after the Broncos fall to the Titans 30-12, while the Cowboys prove too much of a handful for the Knights with a convincing 32-20 win. Newcastle has received a reality check following its solid start to the NRL season via a 32-20 defeat to North Queensland in Townsville.

Brisbane has copped a barrage of criticism after suffering a new low last round — being booed off the field by their own supporters at half-time before losing to lowly Gold Coast.

But Glenn said nothing justified the abuse he had witnessed on social media.

"I have been in the industry a long time and I can switch off on social media, I can deal with the pressures, but some of the younger boys can't," he said.

"Some are 21 years old, they are put in the limelight. When they get those comments … I know deep down it affects them mentally. It hurts them, and it hurts their families when they read it."

'I was putting my foot down'

Glenn's comments came after he was asked why he had posted a passionate response to "bullying" critics on Instagram on Monday night.

"I have just had enough," he said.

"And it's not just my teammates, it is friends from other teams [getting death threats].

"I understand it is a tough industry, we get paid to be professional athletes and we should be performing every week, but no-one deserves to be told they should kill themselves.

"That's the issue. I was putting my foot down on that."

Glenn said he had consoled teammates to help them get through the tough period.

"I don't want to name any names, but I have spoken to some of the boys and just check[ed] up on them," he said.

"We are in a tough industry where no-one wants to show weakness, but I know deep down it affects them, so I want to help bring out the best in them, telling them we have faith in them."

Glenn believed the tough week would galvanise the side.

"If we stick together we know what we can do. We have to have faith in each other to do our job," he said.

"We are sick of losing."

ABC Grandstand expert commentator and two-time premiership winner, Luke Lewis, wrote in his column that the Broncos do not look like they have a "clear focus" on what they want to do on the field.

Lewis, however, said the players could turn things around with a change in mindset.

"If they can just make a bit of a step in the right direction next week and then a little bit more the following week, it will all build up and they'll start to get a bit of enjoyment in their footy again," he wrote.

Broncos chairman Karl Morris has guaranteed under-fire coach Anthony Seibold's future but has reportedly urged him to get some help by signing either former club captain Kevin Walters or dumped Warriors mentor Stephen Kearney as an assistant.
