I find it similar to those people who throw their gear around when they get out. I just don't understand it. If it annoys you that much just give up and go shopping with your missus instead.

You have to seen the intent of the ones who yell. If you get a hint of them acting way too entitled and feel that they deserve better than this ... its better to ask them to find a team. I would rather have a catch dropper in my team rather than someone who pisses off the team and it's spirit.

Years ago we used to have a guy that forever cursed when you misfielded one hit like a rocket off his bowling. He would then sulk and not really bother even trying to stop anything off everyone else bowling, and lethargically chase after the ball. Best game though was when he opened the bowling and got taken apart by a couple of kids, he was taken off and I came on and bowled a maiden, I looked round to see him walking away shaking his head  :D

No place for that kind of thing in amateur sport at all, I know we all want to win and sometimes the heat of the moment gets to us but we need to encourage participation not scare people off by getting shouted at by the team d**khead. There's ways to gee fielders up without screaming at them just use the good old fashioned "let's back up this good bowling" "stay sharp in the field" blah blah blah, keeps the fielders switched on without being a (No Swearing Please) about it, at the end of the day we all pay to play, no one deserves to get abuse for it, if the wanted to get moaned at and get charged for the privilege they'd have gone shopping with the mrs  :D

So I dropped a catch yesterday and the guy went on to get 50.. I've probably dropped more than I've held this season and we have one bowler in our team who gets very vocal at dropped catches off his bowling, he is a really nice guy off the field but on the field he's a bit of a nightmare. It's got to the point where as the bowler is running in all I'm thinking is please don't hit at me. As soon as it comes to me I panic. The catches I have taken have generally been when its come to fast to think about it and I've just reacted. But its got so bad that I've made excuses about not being able to play for the first team so I can play in the seconds where its a lot more relaxed.

Don't blame you not playing for the first team you want to enjoy your afternoon  and not  panic when the ball comes at you knowing an over excited bowler will gob off  if you drop a  catch after all you pay your match fee

I rarely get complaints when I miss a stumping or drop a catch standing up but sometimes silence can be worse. Different players need different things, I like a bit of reassurance others like to be left alone. Can't think of anyone who wants abuse.

The other thing I don't understand is when something is counted as a drop when it isn't actually possible to catch it but you get close.

It usually comes from the person who knows the least about keeping. Like a thick bottom edge that hits your shin and flies off down to third man when stood up, literally no chance of getting near it.

I tend not to care when I drop a catch or miss something . If it a habit you wouldn't be in the team is my motto if you are not good enough.
