The Hogettes have retired.. They were WAY passed their time !! They were great when we actually had the Hogs and Riggo.. All good things must end .. It was past time for them..--I called for it 2-3 years ago.. Dancing

Yes they were definitely heading that way since the Hogs were another couple eras ago. Our players today can forge their own identities and let somebody come up with some new personalities if needed...

I thought they were actually quite disturbing, honestly

It was way past time.The hogs does not exemplify the style of our current team or running system built around finesse and quick reads.The hogs should have been retired before the turn of the century Twisted Evil

i think when we had Samuels, Dock, Rabach, Thomas and Jansen the name/theme of the fat guys who were tough fit and we had a power running game. Of course Joe Bugel called them the dirtbags, not the hogs. Confused

Style, trend, or nothing else matters.
They were a group of our greatest fans. And in being so. Were able to use their Hogette status and raise a lot of money for Childrens Charities.

They will still work their routine together at fundraisers.

Much respect for working what they did in such a positive way. Thats a good group of guys there.

I hate to see them go. I don't wanna hear about eras and are we really saying the personnel doesn't fit the freakin hogettes? They were the only link to the glory days and it sucks that they won't be around for my son to see. Well, they say if it can't get done right, do it yourself. Can't wait to tell the wife I'm going dress shopping.

A video tribute to The Hogettes, there's more to them than you know

Quote:
The Hogettes, those crossdressing men with pig noses, announced they are hanging up their snouts forever. With them passes another sign of the end of the Era of Gibbs, the good one marked by three Lombardi Trophies.

I'd rather see all the ladies in attendance wear burgundy and gold bikinis than see all the men start cross-dressing to show support to be honest..
