Pars the Nickname
By dafc.net - Fri, 16th Jun 2000

Dale Kidd, Nova Scotia, Canada, submitted his theory-


The nickname `Pars` originated in the late `50s when Dunfermline Athletic was having a horrendous season - in other words they couldn`t win to save themselves. One comedian in the stands had enough of the pathetic play that he compared the team`s performance to that of paralytic drunks. The word Paralytics resembled Athletics, so the Dunfermline Paralytics became the name coined to identify the team by frustrated fans. It was later shortened to the Pars, and it has stuck.

I was lucky to see them in the `60s when they were anything but paralytic.
