Todd Carney’s New Haircut Is Not Indicative of a Career Malaise

Todd Carney’s New Haircut Is Not Indicative of a Career Malaise

Todd Carney’s new haircut serves as a warning sign that the Cronulla playmaker’s mind is “not on the job.” Well that’s according to Fox Sports, with the esteemed sports broadcaster claiming just as much earlier this week. In case you missed it, Todd Carney turned up at Brookvale Oval last weekend with a blond peroxide ‘do, which(…)

Is This The Most Deliciously Ironic Rugby League Jersey of all Time?

Is This The Most Deliciously Ironic Rugby League Jersey of all Time?

While the world continues the search for missing Malaysian Air Flight MH370, The Public Apology is (typically) concerned with an irrelevant, esoteric search for the most deliciously ironic rugby league jersey of all time. And much like the search for the missing airplane, TPA’s more trivial quest will span the four corners of the world, but instead of searching for a black box, we are searching(…)

Lamenting The Recent Proliferation Of Faux-Retro Rugby League Jerseys

Lamenting The Recent Proliferation Of Faux-Retro Rugby League Jerseys

It is no secret that we at The Public Apology have a maniacal, OCD-like appreciation for everything yesteryear. Every player, sport and team in the modern era pales in comparison – in terms of personality, aesthetic and game play ­– to how it was when we were in our most formative years. Royston Lightning, not(…)

Friday Night Fights: Rugby League, An Obituary

Friday Night Fights: Rugby League, An Obituary

So for the first time this year I sat down to watch a game of Friday Night Footy, for little other reason than I had nothing in particular to do. Roosters vs Bulldogs. East vs West. Two rivalries, who, as a Knights fan that grew up in Brisbane, I really don’t give a fuck about.(…)

Portrait Of The Athlete As An Artist

Portrait Of The Athlete As An Artist

It recently emerged that George W. Bush has been spending his downtime painting portraits of the various world leaders he met during his tenure. Quite predictably, these sophomoric efforts have been met with smug condescension by the art world, with one British wanker describing Bush’s portraits as ”dreary and compositionally identical likenesses [which] couldn’t feel more impersonal if(…)

Andrew Fifita Should Take A Gap Year

Andrew Fifita Should Take A Gap Year

Like many men his age, Andrew Fifita is going through a Quarter Life Crisis. The difference is, instead of taking place at Scruffy Murphy’s at 2am on a Sunday morning in front of a couple of mates or a spurned love interest, Fifita is playing it out in front of the national (well, NSW and QLD)(…)

‘Buddy’ Franklin And The Swans Are More Compatible Than You Think

‘Buddy’ Franklin And The Swans Are More Compatible Than You Think

In case you haven’t heard, the Sydney Swans are 0-2 after the first two rounds of the season. Normally, this would not be cause for too much concern, with most teams spending the first few rounds getting rid of the cobwebs that have sprung up over the past few months. Often the teams that go deep into(…)

I am a 28-year-old man and I need Foxtel

I am a 28-year-old man and I need Foxtel

I am a 28-year-old man and I need Foxtel. I should have it by now, but I don’t. Actually, I don’t even have a home right now – I’m in between places – but, rest assured, once I’ve sorted that shit out, I’m getting me some Foxtel. I’m not going to go into the history(…)

PERRY: Judging the Australian of the 90s – The Finale

PERRY: Judging the Australian of the 90s – The Finale

It’s finally here – the thrilling conclusion to The Public Apology’s search for THE Australian of the 1990s. In this final instalment, TPA’s Sam Perry looks at how spinning maestro Shane ‘Warney’ Warne and INXS legend Michael ‘Hutchency’ Hutchence both, in their own separate ways, embodied 1990s ‘Australiana’. As is our want, we will arbitrarily ascribe points out(…)
