Like frustrated mushrooms, Australia's rugby union players are sick of being kept in the dark.
They're demanding a seat at the table to voice their concerns that Rugby Australia is deciding their fate without any consultation.
Unlike in the AFL and NRL, the Rugby Union Players Association hasn't been consulted with several cancelled meetings the closest they've come.
They're due to meet Rugby Australia on Tuesday night, but the financial future of the players might already be decided by then.
Rugby Australia is holding their annual general meeting on Monday to potentially finalise how much Australia's Super Rugby and Wallabies players will get paid following the coronavirus-induced shutdown.
ACT Brumbies players, like Scott Sio and Folau Faingaa, were calling to be heard by sharing RUPA's statement on social media on Sunday night.
Both the players associations in the AFL and NRL played crucial roles in discussions for their respective codes, with the AFL already coming to an agreement and the NRL expected to on Monday.
That hasn't been the case in rugby, with Rugby Australia locking itself behind closed doors and ignoring RUPA.
RUPA chief executive Justin Harrison, a former Brumbies player and assistant coach, has called for that to end.

"Rugby Australia and the Rugby Union Players Association should be partners in this process to navigate their way together through this crisis," Harrison said in a statement.
"RUPA members and the game's stakeholders are frustrated. There is a vacuum of information.
"While our colleagues in the other major football codes across Australia have been meeting with their governing bodies for weeks, RA has refused to share any information about the future financial direction of the game.
"Are the players about to be presented with a fait accompli - the future of the game decided without any consultation?
"There has never been a more critical time to collaborate and find a whole-of-game solution."
RUPA president Damien Fitzpatrick, who plays for the NSW Waratahs, said the players were aware that big decisions needed to be made.
But they wanted to be part of the solution to help get the game back on its feet.
There are grave concerns for the future of rugby in Australia, with Rugby Australia's current broadcast partner Fox considering whether it will cover the game going forward.
"There is [an] acknowledgement by the players that unprecedented action is needed," Fitzpatrick said.
"This is a critical time and the players have sought the opportunity to constructively contribute to a solution. To date RA has refused to provide us that opportunity."
