The Hoggettes are Hanging 'Em Up

USA TODAY Sports

The Hoggettes, the most colorful and recognizable group of Redskins fans, are calling it quits after 30 seasons.

Over the course of four different decades, the Hoggettes have graced FedEx Field and RFK Stadium in a way only the most devoted Redskins fans couldin pig snouts and dresses.

But on Friday, D.C.'s favorite group of cross-dressing offensive line enthusiasts are calling it a day. "Boss Hoggette" Michael Torberg released the following statement on Hoggettes.org:

“After 30 seasons, the Hogettes are hanging up our pig snouts & dresses. It has been an honor being a part of the greatest 12th Man fans in the NFL. We will forever be Redskins’ fans and cheer for our beloved team. It is a new era and we will continue to support RG3 and his teammates. HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!! We will also continue to help (incognito) raise money for Children’s Charities.”

A member of the Hoggettes spoke to Hogs Haven editor Kevin Ewoldt, and said that their decision had nothing to do with recent events pertaining to Robert Griffin III's injury.

In the span that the Hoggettes came into being, they've witnessed Super Bowls and last-place finishes, Hall of Famers and first-round busts, and countless other extremes that come with being a Redskins fan. And let's not forget that they originated from the principle of supporting the unheralded, but just as vital, parts of the team. And now, the time has come for this group, one that maintained loyalty and passion for a team despite it providing its share of low points over the years, to get its due as well. Hail to the Hoggettes.
