My family are all Dees although my dad (RIP) and one of my brothers are the type who wanted both City teams to do well and supported England as long as they weren't playing Scotland etc etc. Don't get me wrong, they wore their heart on their sleeve when it came to derbies.
However, my nearest brother (also RIP) was a true dark-blue dab-hater and it was he who made me the fervent fan I am today with this clever ploy.
As my dad and oldest brother had decided to let me choose who to follow my brother stepped in to ensure I would wear the dark-blue. How? simple, he took me to a game at the dump, we sat in what was then known as the Grandstand, it was a pysh experience, shyte crowd, shyte atmosphere and probably a shyte game, I came home disappointed.
My next game was at Dens, Dundee v Aberdeen if I remember, big crowd, loads of people in the streets beforehand, butterflies at the noise in the ground, hairs on the back of my neck standing when we scored (didn't see a thing lol) and just a fantastic experience all round, that was me hooked and badgered my brother to take me again which he gladly did when he could. The rest is history.
Turns out the game across the road was a reserve fixture so he knew fine what he was doing, got his tactics spot-on, well played that man eh?

Maybe Baz should ditch his 'ball on the deck' philosophy and adopt this brutal style, seems to work for them. 02 February 2013 12:59 Started on 'Dees Banter' forum
