Tongue in cheek apology in major UK newspapers

Paddy Power's outdoor media, situated outside UK football stadia, that suggested second jobs for footballers playing below par (see previous report) has been followed by a public apology in The Sun and The Daily Star UK newspapers.

Un-phased by the feathers it ruffled the first time around with certain UK football clubs such as Chelsea FC, Paddy Power's apology is addressed to prominent footballers Fernando Torres, Andrey Arshavin, Darren Bent, Jose Bosingwa and Osaze Odemwingi, referring to them "aka the benchwarmers".

In the "apology" Paddy Power offers the footballers a free 5 bet to make up for its insensitive remarks saying tongue in cheek that it "appreciates the incredible drive and dedication it takes to become a professional benchwarmer".
