    Tired and emotional as a newt.

    Kudos all round. The commentaries are excellent. Top work.

    Yeah, you're probably right.

    Was it a voice issue or was it how I acted in the commentary team?

    It sounded like you were really nervous and were stuttering a lot/finding it hard to say what you wanted to say

    I imagine that's something that can be improved with practise. I notice it's the older blokes who are far more comfortable on the mic, but it's good to hear from all the demographics of the site. We can't all be Smudges.

    Yea it definitely can but it does take a while to get that confidence. I know I still occasionally stumble over my thoughts when I speak in pressure situations. I'm sorry to say that it meant I turned off the mixlr stream and listened to the tv commentary instead

    Some people are just naturally better at it imo. And some people work well bouncing off the personalities off some but then struggle with others.

    It does take practice - and I am an old bastard. I was prone to a fair bit of mumbling and stuttering in my early 20s. Except when singing karaoke...

    Is it just me or are these comments by Chewie totally out of order?

    I don't think that anybody that has a crack at this should be criticised in any way at all..........****ing rude IMO. Hardly going to convince anyone else that wants to try but is a bit unsure about it to have a go is it?

    Edit:

    Morgie - If you enjoyed yourself doing it then stick with it.........we're not trying to compete with TMS here ffs.

    Well your first post certainly wasn't constructive.

    What fantasticaly unconstructive criticism on constructive criticism. Just because you're calling someone out on an action you deem to be rude gives you no excuse to be rude yourself.

    Directed at me? Don't really see how my post can be deemed to be rude or objectionable in anyway but hey-ho.

    I accept the first comment was rather blunt and without explanation but I don't see the problem with talking about why I didn't tune in
