Walters had a Saturday afternoon out at Eagle Farm cancelled by club bosses in the wake of their derby loss to the Gold Coast.
That prompted Brisbane legend Gorden Tallis to take aim at Broncos management.

Round 3
Tallis said the Broncos were about to implode and compelled them to give Walters total support and allow him to bring the clubs old boys and current crop of players closer together.
The people above Kevvie need to support him, Tallis said. They need to get behind him and give him the tools to shine.
Parker: Old Boys chat not an issue
But Corey Parker hit back on Fox Leagues Big League Wrap, saying the clubs obsession with its old boys was unhealthy.
Why are we making a song and dance over a race day that got cancelled, he asked.

I think you make a decision on whats in the best interest of the team.
If the old boys are fair dinkum and they want to turn up and support the team.
But speaking on Triple M, Geyer sided with Tallis and predicted a bleak outlook for the remainder of Walters two-year contract if thing dont change dramatically.
Ennis: It’s time for Milford to go
If Kevvie Walters doesnt have total autonomy in Brisbane like last year (Anthony) Seibold didnt have it, then his tenure is doomed before it starts, Geyer said.
Thats worrying. Corey Parker then returned serve on Fox later on at night and theres the conundrum with the Broncos theyve got two old boys who cant agree.
Youve got Gordie saying that and Corey Parker saying how is a race going to fix things?
Ill tell you how itll fix it is, one thing in rugby league that never changes no matter how much we get and its the interaction with ex-players and the current players when they are struggling.
Every club does it and you need your current players to realise how much blood, sweat and tears the old players shed for that jersey.
On a social day its where it all comes out after a couple of beers and guess what? The young guys go back to training and say: how good was it having a beer with that bloke or hearing that story?

Geyer said the respite from constant training and game day would allow the young Broncos squad to switch off from their poor run of results.

The Broncos have lost 16 games straight the four longest losing streak in the NRL era. Geyer added: At the moment, as Gordie says, someone above Kevvie Walters not giving him free reign.
Youd have to be stupid not to give him free reign at the Broncos he won five comps for the blokes. I mean, come on.
Hes trying to do everything he can to get something out of this team who need something in their life other than just a loss.
Theyre young and this is damning on them, every time they get a loss it is damning because theyre the biggest team in the state.
They need help and they need help from outside sources like the old boys. I know they were scathing of Seibold last year, but when youve worn the jersey youve got the right to talk about your old club.
