    DSA strange one

    I see the DSA are now using the Latin motto Semper Fi, no real thoughts either way on it but not really sure why they'd bother.

    What I found odd was the reasoning was from the song:-

    "We are Dundee supporters,
    Faithful through and through,
    Over and over we will follow you"

    I cannot recall Dees ever singing that, for me it was always Celtic and the odd mutter of it from across the road. Does anyone recall us singing that one?

    I always thought it meant always loyal....which can obviously have other meanings in Scottish football.

    Never been sung by Dees to my recollection - Celtic and United yes, Dees no.
