The Return of the Freedom Warrior?

by DFE

When the DFE started off as a group, they were small in numbers. However, their numbers in size didn’t affect the punch that they could deliver in energy, and excitement for FC Dallas. Since the numbers in the group were low, the numbers of fans that wanted the DFE to go away, were high. The DFE knew each match that in order for our group to survive we had to show up in the stands, and support our club, against the awful library atmosphere that at that time, Pizza Hut Park (once called), had fallen into. The DFE knew that if they were gonna make a statement, they would have to be creative, original, and funny. 

Thus, the DFE Freedom Warrior was born. 

188741_209037502439661_5285925_nThe DFE Freedom warrior was the heart of the group in the early days. Since our group had less than 20 members in it, the DFE freedom warrior gave everyone the will to stand strong in 103 and cheer on FC Dallas! We were booed, we were complained on, we were hated. We loved it! Because we knew the players loved us, and loved what we were doing! 

Every match the DFE Freedom Warrior would show up early, paint his face, and then get ready to lead us from our tailgate into the match! 

198358_209168859093192_6096322_nWhen the 2012 season came around, the group was larger, we were starting to make a serious impact in the stadium. The DFE Freedom warrior was nowhere to be found. Sadly, we waited for him at the Frisco Londoner, where he would drink, and get his face ready for the match. Many attempts to call him were made. Many attempts to email him were made. Some members even drove out to find him. Sadly, he was gone. 

199374_209042755772469_817072_n

Rumors floated around that he was lost. Rumors continued that he had gone to prison. Some say they attended his funeral. All we really know is, he was gone.

Sadly the DFE moved on without our Freedom Warrior. In a sense, he had accomplished his goal in helping to create a new supporter section at FC Dallas stadium. Based off of his leadership and committment to help the DFE, new members rose from the ashes to carry the charge, and continue the goal, that the DFE were determined to create in section 103.

Some say that on a dark and cloudy night up at FC Dallas stadium, you can hear the battle cry from the DFE Freedom Warrior. The cry to allow everyone know in section 103, that they can complain on us, they can boo us, they can yell at us, but they can’t make us move, and they can NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOOOOOMMMMM!!!!!

Today section 103 aka the Snake Pit is a force at FC Dallas stadium.

We have a great relationship with FC Dallas front office, and the fans that choose not to join up with us. We are very thankful to those that came before us and helped build the DFE into the group it is today. 

Lately rumors have floated around that if you look closely enough, you can see glimpses of the DFE Freedom Warrior. Some say this new member might be a decadent of the great Freedom Warrior. Some say that it is the Freedom Warrior, returning to continue his mission in helping to build the DFE into a powerhouse in 103.

The jury is still out if this is the Freedom Warrior. Many of the veteran members would love to see the sword picked back up, and to hear the battle cry again, “FREEDOOOOMMMMMM!!!!!

FC Dallas 1 Colorado 0

by DFE

A howler from Rapids backup goalkeeper Steward Ceus handed FC Dallas a 1-0 victory in the season opener at a chilly FC Dallas Stadium.

Starting in place of the injured Matt Pickens, Ceus left his box and failed to reach a speculative long ball from Dallas playmaker David Ferreira in the 11th minute, allowing Jackson the easiest goal he will score all season and gifting Dallas a precious three points over their Western Conference rivals.

The first chance of the match fell to former FCD player Atiba Harris who beat FC Dallas goalkeeper Raul Fernandez to a 7th minute corner, but sent his header wide of the mark. It’s a missed chance the Rapids would regret as Dallas scored with their first real opportunity of the match moments later.

The Rapids continued their bossing of the game after going down, however, and nearly equalized straight away. Rookie midfielder Dillon Powers played in fellow rookie DeShorn Brown, who beat defender Matt Hedges for pace, but sent his shot right at the onrushing Fernandez.

It looked as if Jackson had doubled the FC Dallas lead in the 18th minute as the Brazilian received the ball near midfield and unleashed an effort from 30 yards that gave the optical illusion of a goal despite only finding the side netting.

It was more of the same in the second half as neither side found much of a foothold in the relatively disjointed game. Harris nearly equalized things for the Rapids in the 58th minute as the new Colorado signing ripped a curling effort from 25 yards out that beat the sprawling Fernandez, but sailed harmlessly to the wrong side of the Dallas goal.

The Rapids failed to produce a better effort as the game wore down while FC Dallas was happy to pack up shop and accept the three points gifted to them by Ceus’ error.

With the win, Dallas moves to 8-4-6 all-time on opening day while the Rapids fall to 5-11-2 in the first game of the season and just 2-8-3 all-time at FC Dallas Stadium.

FCD heads west to take on Chivas USA on Sunday, March 10 (4 p.m. CT, Time Warner Cable Sports/UniMas).

The Launch of the Snake Pit!

by DFE

This past Saturday FC Dallas opened their season with a semi lucky 1-0 win. A win, is a win. It might not have been the best game, but the club still showed the potential they have for this season. The excitement of the win also came with the excitement that the DFE launched their newly named section, “The Snake Pit”

snakepitLast season fellow DFE members Kevin Adams and Jon Kirchhoff were engaged in harassing a visiting club. Like most of the time when we focus in on these visiting players it becomes very evident that we are getting under their skin. This is what we live for! As one of the players continued to look fluster Kevin and Jon reminded them that when they come by section 103 they are gonna get bitten! The phrase this is a snake pit was shouted and it completely became the popular term to refer to our section. 

This past Saturday the 120 members plus of the DFE took to section 103, at FC Dallas stadium, and continued the tradition for the 3rd straight year of making 103, a rowdy, fun, heckling, atmosphere for all to join in supporting FC Dallas! New member Julianna Jackson joined up with the DFE for her first match, “The energy was so great! The seats were amazing, and of course everyone was so welcoming and fun!”

The DFE has been working very hard over the last three years to achieve our goal of having the entire section of 103 standing and cheering on FC Dallas! Saturday we took one more step closer to accomplishing that goal. New member Eric Arias quoted it best, “If you want to watch the game go sit on the east side, if you want to be apart of the game stand in the snake pit!” The best thing was seeing all the new members of the DFE show up and have a blast. This is exactly what we want for FC Dallas stadium, a great soccer atmosphere to compliment the already amazing atmosphere the Dallas Beer Guardians have created in the Beer Garden. 

DFE

Cody Marlow, a top center back for Texas Wesleyan University said, “Opening day with the DFE after being away from everyone was like being back home with family! I could not be happier with the type of supporter group that the DFE is with all of the heckling, rowdiness, and true fans to the game, and the players. If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to experience an English Premier league match, the Snake Pit is the perfect definition and experience to get you closest to it!”
