The Ian Higgins Show featuring TPA’s Dave J. Edwards

On this week’s episode, the lads discuss: Lleyton Hewitt’s incredible, ridiculously drawn out career. Have we forgotten how good he was? Was he any good? The changing face of men’s tennis over the past 20 years – the decline of short, fast blokes (Chang, Agassi) and the emergence of 6’7″ massive units with frighteningly long arms and(…)

Jimmy Anderson’s Sledging Détente Demonstrates A Poor Understanding of International Relations

Jimmy Anderson’s Sledging Détente Demonstrates A Poor Understanding of International Relations

Jimmy Anderson has publicly called on both England and Australia to ditch the sledging for the upcoming Ashes series. Clearly, the drawn New Zealand series had a tremendous impact on the once-surly Anderson. Here, against a cricketing minnow, on their home turf, in an essentially meaningless two test series, England shook off their troubles and played with a newly discovered joie(…)

Has Everyone Forgotten That We Hate FIFA?

Has Everyone Forgotten That We Hate FIFA?

Firstly, congratulations to the Matildas. This article is in no way meant to take the gloss off their magnificent 1-0 defeat of Brazil. Beating Brazil in any form of soccer, in any form of competition, let alone the Round of 16 in a World Cup, is to be celebrated heartily. But as we bask in(…)

The Ian Higgins Show featuring TPA’s Dave J. Edwards

This week on The Ian Higgins show, Ian and Dave have an expansive chat about: The Ashes: will England get smashed within 15 days of cricket? Graeme Swann doesn’t rate Steve Smith’s technique – what’s that all about? Why do the English think they can beat Australia? Steve Smith’s face The Matildas Women’s sport doesn’t(…)

Origin Was Great Last Night, Wasn’t It?

Origin Was Great Last Night, Wasn’t It?

State of Origin II was a wonderfully gripping affair, with NSW prevailing over Queensland 26-18. Here again to dissect the whole experience is TPA’s core editorial group: Dave Edwards, Sam Perry, Ben Shine and Al McClintock. *  *  *  * Sam Perry: Origin reactions? Alasdair McClintock: I am outraged, although a decider will be fun. SP: I like Melbourne(…)

Melbourne Corporate Guy Begrudgingly Accepts Free Box Tickets to State of Origin

Melbourne Corporate Guy Begrudgingly Accepts Free Box Tickets to State of Origin

A Melbourne banker has begrudgingly accepted a brace of highly sought after box tickets to tonight’s State of Origin clash at the MCG. Andrew Robertson, 29, was gifted the free corporate tickets from a client, as a token of appreciation for their long-standing business cooperation. Upon receiving the tickets, Robertson – a Xavier alumni and Melbourne Demons member - was(…)

James Tamou’s Hair is Indicative of NSW’s Malaise

James Tamou’s Hair is Indicative of NSW’s Malaise

Nothing more embodies NSW’s Origin predicament than James Tamou’s hair. Down one-nil in the series, the Blues have appeared sloppy, misguided and loose – exactly like their prop enforcer’s current coiffure. Sure, his hair arrangement is on trend and looks fashionable at face value, but it lacks cohesion entirely. His locks on top have a(…)

TPA Pays Respects After Retirement of Rugby League Great

TPA Pays Respects After Retirement of Rugby League Great

He was one of the fiercest competitors the game has ever known. A hard tackling and ruthless player who made a career out of tasking risks, which more often than not, paid off handsomely. In his prime he was all-powerful and almost all-conquering. Like a fox, he was equal parts cunning and intimidating. At times he(…)

Don’t you get it? Sepp Blatter is Frank Underwood!

Don’t you get it? Sepp Blatter is Frank Underwood!

Apparently Sepp Blatter resigned from FIFA the other day. Apparently he finally put his hands up, admitted he was an evil bastard and restored order, peace and democracy* to world football’s governing body. Except that he didn’t. Instead, old Sepp just Frank Underwooded us big time. Like the fictional US President from TV’s House of(…)

Daly Cherry-Evans, You Should Be Ashamed of Yourself!

Daly Cherry-Evans, You Should Be Ashamed of Yourself!

Daly Cherry-Evans you are a scoundrel. A selfish, money-grabbing scoundrel. How else can you explain your actions in reneging last minute on your deal with the Gold Coast Titans? I’m not even angry. Just disappointed. If I were a Titans fan I would probably be livid with rage. Painting the walls of Burleigh Bowls with(…)
