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.
The 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!
When 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.
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!!!!!
