    CricketWeb Commentary

    Get the techies on this one. I have no idea how it'd work from a technical point of view, but given I'd rather listen to a horde of flatulence afflicted hippopotami than the Channel 9 krew, is there a way to set up a kind of Skype/Radio thing where approved CricketWeb members could step in and out during a Test match and provide commentary? Then, for those not approved to commentate - a way to listen to the stream.

    Gotta be better than most commentary teams, and I think it would be fabulous to have teams like Howsie, Phlegm and Athers all 'in the box' at the same time.

    Great way to generate traffic for the site, you'd think.

    Thanks for the suggestion

    If there's enough interest from the community in getting something like this happening, then can definitely consider options.

    Hypothetically we could use something like ustream and skype for the commentary. That would be fairly straightforward but would obviously be taking the traffic elsewhere.

    Only if there is no censure of language and commentators are allowed to call out **** posters once in a while.

    I would listen to this all the time.

    If Spikey and Uvers were in the booth together would anyone understand a single word though?

    It would be wonderful. There is the legality issue though. Some people who were doing testmatchsofa had to take it down and are now doing it under a different name. Not only would that operation be affected, if the legal people get involved, they would tie up the entire site. Hate to play a spoil sport, but I would say to drop this idea.

    There are various internet radio casters and whatnot out there, that could be of some use.

    The fact no legal issue ever arose and that the cast is still doing it makes me think otherwise. I think The Cricketer got them to stop when the ECB complained to them. And as the magazine will actually have a business relationship with the ICC they listened. Hence losing the Test Match Sofa name which was purchased by the magazine and the new name for the same team.

    It's not a legal issue, it's a political one.

    I did, did you? Unless some of us are secretly working for the BBC or Sky and are pushing to cross promote and make a living off of it, there is no issue. The Crickter canned TMS not any legal suit. And they still do what they've been doing for 6 years.

    Not sure you know, don't you need to have the rights to do commentary etc?
