Television news cameras were staking out their carpark on Monday morning but Brisbane's players are adamant an investigation into alleged drunken incidents involving James Roberts is no distraction to their NRL season.

The sixth-placed Broncos face ladder leaders Melbourne this weekend with a top-four berth very much in their sights but they're also dealing with claims Roberts has twice been evicted from Brisbane venues in the past fortnight.

Veteran forward Sam Thaiday says he doesn't think the centre should be suspended over the allegations and categorically denies the issue is hampering the Broncos' efforts on the field.
