‘Please Love Me’: The Inherent Sadness of a Legends T20 Competition

There’s a new T20 competition in the works, if reports are to be believed. Only this time, it’s going to involve all the players you grew up with. Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar have been contacting a raft of recently retired international cricketers to take part in their Cricket All Stars League. The plan is to(…)

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

This week, Ian and Dave discuss Justin Langer’s decision to reportedly rule himself out of the running for the English test coaching position, including: Has Langer alpha’d England? Do former Australian greats find it hard to divorce themselves from the deep-seated desire to smash England? Has Cricket Australia offered Langer a gig post-Lehmann? Andrew Strauss’ increasingly(…)

Waaaaaahda? WADA’s Desperate Bid for Relevancy

Waaaaaahda? WADA’s Desperate Bid for Relevancy

Does anyone drug test WADA? Because I think they must be high. The World Anti-Doping Agency’s decision earlier this week to appeal the AFL anti-doping tribunal’s ‘not guilty’ verdict on 34 current and former Essendon players makes no sense otherwise. After a two and a half year investigation, it is highly unlikely that new evidence(…)

This week on the Ian Higgins Show featuring TPA’s Dave J. Edwards, we talk everything Kevin Pietersen. What the fuck is going on in English cricket? No, really. Did Andrew Strauss ‘champ’ Kevin Pietersen during their meeting? Does Strauss still wear that silly wooden necklace circa 2003? Funny if so. When is 326 not out enough(…)

Kevin Pietersen’s Catch 22

Kevin Pietersen’s Catch 22

Kevin Pietersen hit 326* while you were sleeping. Sure, it was in a county game, but still. Three hundred and twenty-six runs – all of them his. Strangely, just as this news filtered through, the UK media subsequently reported that new ECB director of cricket, Andrew Strauss, has told Pietersen he will never represent England again. This all happened within(…)

Minichiello’s New Paleo Diet Pushes All the Boundaries

Minichiello’s New Paleo Diet Pushes All the Boundaries

Anthony Minichiello’s nutrition advice has Roosters players looking leaner than ever and The Public Apology can exclusively reveal that it is largely to do with a controversial new diet supplement. In a sick twist, that would even make Stephen Dank squirm, Minichiello has been administering regular chalices of human blood to players to give them(…)

ARU’s New Wallaby Eligibility Rules ‘The Greatest Deregulation Since Hawke-Keating Era’: Academic

ARU’s New Wallaby Eligibility Rules ‘The Greatest Deregulation Since Hawke-Keating Era’: Academic

The decision to relax a ban on overseas-based players representing the Wallabies has been hailed as Australia’s greatest de-regulation since the Hawke-Keating years. RMIT economic professor Ron Gitson said the move would draw comparisons with the ambitious economic reform agenda implemented by the Australian Government during the 1980s. “Just like when Hawke and Keating floated(…)

Three Ways the Penrith Panthers and Port Adelaide Can Benefit From New Cross-Code Alliance

Three Ways the Penrith Panthers and Port Adelaide Can Benefit From New Cross-Code Alliance

The NRL’s Penrith Panthers and AFL’s Port Adelaide Power have announced a cross-code partnership designed to help both clubs share expertise, innovate and liberally insert corporate buzzwords into their vernacular.  So far the “informal collaboration” has consisted of Port Chairman David Koch paying a visit to the Panthers during the off-season, but according to Panthers CEO Jason(…)
