    Paul's voice in the background

    Seems that yesterday and today that there were a few times when Phil was commentating that I heard Paul in the background seemingly commentating as well, although not for the Versus broadcast. Are these two double dipping, is Paul conducting guest comments for other broadcasts (ala the Cycling.tv phone ins), or are they laying down comments for WCP?

    Also, is commentating a word?

    Sherwin and Liggett also do the commentary for Australian television, so they're always trading off. Those guys are real workhorses!

    Maybe it's the afternoon (vs. morning) coverage that I watch, but I almost never see Phil and only get Hummer and Roll (sounds like a bad lawyer's office).

    What Cipo said.

    In Australia, we get the Phil and Paul show. Occassionally (every 15 minutes or so) Sherwen takes over the commentating for a few minutes and you can hear Liggett waffling on in the background. I assume Liggest sneaks out and talks on air with the US co-hosts.

    LOL...like "Dewey, Cheatem, & Howe." The DVR is your ticket away from the Hummer/Roll team!

    Interesting, in the UK we got the reverse, we got Shagger Sherwen commentating, with Phils voice in the background.

    Just goes to show how good those guys are, they can do 2 commentaries simultaneously.
    I grew up as a kid idolising those hero's in the Tour de France, Indurain and everyone like that. It was almost a childhood dream to ride the Tour de France. The last 2 years my childhood dream which became a reality has been pissed all over by certain members of the peloton. - Bradley Wiggins 27th July 2007.
