Only an Excuse? star Jonathan Watson also contributed to the show, previously producing the Only a Wee Excuse section of the show which was replaced by the "Week that Wisnae" sketch for the last series, this was essentially a simplified version of its predecessor.
Every episode Catriona (Cat) Harvey would star with Tam Cowan and Jonathan Watson. Nearing the end of the last series the Real Radio (Scotland) star stopped appearing on the show for unknown reason.
The audience for Offside normally come dressed in replica football jerseys, and actively cheer or boo when references are made about their concerning teams. Tam himself is a Motherwell fan, and a significant number of the audience normally reflect this. Up until the 2006 Season, the show featured its mascot "Jock the Cock", a giant rooster, who would dance at the end of the show, at Cowan's request: "Take it away, Jock the Cock". Jock the Cock was played throughout by the infamous former fur filler of St. Mirren's Paisley Panda (a.k.a. Andy Duncan)
