All Roller Talk Archive
A new link to the All Roller Talk Archive is available in the main menu section for easy access to the forum archives. Just press the “All Roller Talk Archive” menu link and you will have direct access to over 100,000 posts started in 2004 ending in 2010 covering virtually every topic imaginable on the Birmingham Roller.
This archive is loaded with valuable information from top roller fanciers the world over. From breeding, kit training and management, strain making, pigeon politics and lively debates on a wide variety of topics, it’s all here.
While mostly positive and with an air of trying to be helpful, this archive starts in some of the early days of the Internet when it still had a Wild West feel to it. This led to many heated and passionate discussions and for those arguing their position, one either made allies or enemies depending, which way your opinion fell.
From this came obvious splintering and factions of differing viewpoints and cliques leading to new forums and websites as lines were drawn. One might be in or out depending on the point of view one held.
Things may or may not have come a long way since those days but the archive stands testament to what many roller fanciers were thinking back in the early days of the roller pigeon hobby on the Internet.
