    The signature fans are the 'Hogettes.' These fans are beefy guys who wear dresses and pig snouts to games. The team nickname 'Hogs' came in the 1980's and referred to the team's offensive line.

    Fan Zema Williams dresses up as the unofficial mascot Chief Zee since 1978. He was given a Chief Zee Day in Washington, DC (November 7, 1985). He was inducted in Visa's Hall of Fans.
    After Chief Zee taunted fans at a Philadelphia Eagle game at Philadelphia's Veterans stadium, the fans beat him badly enough to break his legs and strip him to his underwear (1983).
    In an effort to apologize, the Eagles invited him back the following year when he was accosted by an elderly female fan who threw a drink in his face and said 'You've got a lot of nerve coming up here! We mugged the guy who dressed like that last year! (1984).'
    They averaged 8,000 no shows per game (September 1998).
    They sing their anthem 'Hail to the Redskins' after TD's.
    In October 2002, they still attended games while there were fears in the community of being shot by a sniper.
    Mike Torbet, the 'boss Hogette,' was inducted in the Visa Hall of Fans.
    The Hogettes appeared in a Visa commercial.
