The word "Yid" has been traditionally used as an offensive word to describe a member of the Jewish Community.
However, for as long as we can remember, Tottenham Football fans, have referred to themselves proudly as "Yids" to reflect the Jewish Community from the local area.
To Tottenham fans, this word is part of our heritage and history, we are proud of this fact and we acclaim ourselves, without religious overtones, to be proud to be Yids.
Please allow us to continue to refer to ourselves in this manner as we have for decades, by signing the petition below.
The Get "Yid" into the dictionary, meaning "a Tottenham Football Fan" petition to Oxford English Dictionary Writers and Football Fans was written by Brian Dickie and is in the category Culture at GoPetition. Contact author here. Petition tags: yid army tottenham
This was started in 2007 by Brian Dickie please support this and the term can never be taken away from us COYY.
