After reading the post on house rules it set me wondering, in the UK we have a union led site, somewhat biased in its views the Brown Cafe seems to have input from all levels and all areas Views are therefore much varied and bring much discusion. (although many threads are much more relevent to the US). How did it all start? What was the first post? What was the original purpose of the site? I myself look forward to drumming up UK input. Can't wait to be able to start a football thread?
