DRAGONS warrior James Graham says his own future is the last thing on his mind despite being caught up in the flood of criticism directed at his club this week.
Coach Paul McGregor is firmly in the sights of fans and commentators following last week's dismal 18-0 loss to the Warriors, though some big-name players have also copped flak.
Big-money halves Ben Hunt and Corey Norman have copped their share - with McGregor shifting the latter to fullback this week - while questions have also been raised over Graham's future, with the 34-year-old off contract this season.
Balmain legend and Fox Sports Analyst Steve Roach suggested the 34-year-old's "legs are gone" in the wake of the defeat to the Warriors, but Graham said criticism is par for course.
"All I can say is I'm not looking for the door," Graham said.
"With the amount of media coverage of our game now people are going to say and write what they want to say. It comes with the territory.
"I'm not shying away from it, I'm here, I do my thing on [NRL] 360, I'm not naive enough to think it's all going to be positive. You're dealing with difficult moments and difficult times, it's part of being a player.

"I'm just going to try my best for my team this week. I want to get the win for this team and that's where the focus is, not what people in the media say about me as an individual.
"The future will materialise but I'm not really thinking about my future I'm just thinking about doing my job for the Dragons this week."
McGregor responded to the disappointing loss by shifting Norman from five-eighth to fullback and handing Adam Clune a debut that will come on his 25th birthday.

The move's met with a mixed reaction, with McGregor reportedly given a fortnight - and clashes with the Bulldogs and Sharks - to save his job. It makes both virtually must-win but Graham said his coach is unfazed.
"I don't think coach reads too much into what's happening externally," Graham said.
"Whichever way the wind blows, the media will get some seed from [the changes] .You make changes and its seen as panic, you don't, and it's seen as sticking with the wrong team.
"It doesn't really matter what the coach did, it was going to be met with negative aspects. Whatever you guys are going to say you're going to say.
"Obviously there is outside distraction but as far as we're concerned we just need to focus on the job at hand. No one's looking for the door within the group.
"We're hurting within the group and that's what we care about, our hurt and how we feel because we know we want to be better. We know that we need to fix some things up and [McGregor's] part of the solution."
Clune suffered an untimely broken nose at training on Tuesday, but Graham's confident he can spark his side on debut.
"Adam Clune's a great player, he's been banging down the door of first team for a very long time and I'm really excited to see him play," Graham said.
