This story, on Page 3 no less, drew the attention of The Public Apology’s Dave J. Edwards and Ben Shine. While the original headline (see below) wasn’t bad, Shine and Edwards(…)

Fuck the Selfies, The Wallabies Must Adopt a Collective Spirit

Fuck the Selfies, The Wallabies Must Adopt a Collective Spirit

While the elbow patch crowd continues to rejoice in Saturday night’s last minute win over the Springboks, we at The Public Apology are not so impressed. What’s wrong with the Wallabies, you ask?

Karmichael Hunt offers new insight on how to clean up Rugby League

“Rugby league players get into more trouble because they are dumb and/or uneducated”. It’s a  justification that is tossed around every time a rugby league player is caught for assault, drink driving or pissing in his own mouth. But it’s not just pub talk. Public figures such as Peter Fitzsimons’ have long espoused a similar(…)

Australian Rugby Union is Like Scottie Pippen’s Penis

The Public Apology has launched yet another absurd, somewhat unnecessary mini-series. In this latest one, we’re brainstorming the analogy that best fits the milieu in which the present-day Wallabies now find themselves. In this third instalment, Al McClintock suggests that the Wallabies are to New Zealand what Scotty Pippen’s manhood was to Michael Jordan… *  *  *(…)

Like a Pair of Baggy Jeans, Rugby Union is an Faddish Relic from the 1990s

Like a Pair of Baggy Jeans, Rugby Union is an Faddish Relic from the 1990s

TPA Continues North Asian Offensive with Japan Trip

Given that The Public Apology now has a presence in several Asian markets, it is important to distinguish the various customs in each territory in order to do business. Indeed, one must seek to master the art of non-verbal Japanese communication… As you may already know, The Public Apology is seeking to penetrate North Asian markets as part of an aggressive expansion(…)

C’mon Rugby Union, Have A Go Ya Mug!

C’mon Rugby Union, Have A Go Ya Mug!

Rugby union failed us again on Saturday night. As a concept, rugby union is great. When played well, rugby union can excite even the most skeptical, non-partisan viewer. But rugby union is rarely played well.  The only time I was truly captivated by a game of rugby union was, of course, in the year 2000. The(…)
