Cronulla Sharks supporters aren't best pleased with Will Chambers after the new recruit was pictured arm-in-arm with his former team.
For some context, the Sharks had just been flogged 40-14 by Chambers' old employers the Melbourne Storm.
And after the game the 32-year-old was seen posing for photos with his ex-teammates on the AAMI Park turf.
Seeing as though Chambers won two NRL Premierships over a stellar 12-year career with the Victorian club, taking the time for a quick picture after the game seemed fairly innocuous and rather innocent at the time.
But not in the eyes of passionate Sharks fans.

When the NRL posted the photo on their social media channels, some Cronulla supporters let their feelings on the matter be known.
One bloke tweeted: "Pathetic look. Horrible. If I was the Sharks he wouldn't be playing first grade again."
While another added: "The way he played you would think he had a purple jersey on."
And one fan simply said: "Ooft. Tough to see that after getting belted last night."
Even supporters from other NRL clubs chimed in.
One said: "Smiling after a flogging! Man I would be spewing if I were unfortunate enough to be a fishies fan."
While another added: "Man that's not a good look! I'm a Broncos fan I know what looks bad!"
But for some, the picture was absolutely harmless and actually showed how much Chambers is still valued and respected by the Storm players.
One rugby league fan commented: "For goodness sake it's a mate having a photo with mates."
And another added: "Come on give these guys a thumbs up for reaching out to a brother and not forgetting what he's done with the club. Some people man."
You have to admit, the criticism does seem rather harsh.
