    The original title was changed because I didn't want this to become a flame fest (how naive I am to think that would make a difference) and to show that it was in some way football related.

    And to Toby's point. This thread probably has outlived it's usefulness, but if you really want to flame each other, whatever. If it's somewhat good matured, I don't care. If it gets personal and nasty, we'll close the thread. I think most would expect us to if that's the direction this thread turns.

    Again, I have not suggested ANYWHERE that people should not be allowed to wear what they wear.

    But let me ask you this Turtle, do you think that Art Monk was sitting around before the induction wondering whether or not the Hogettes would be there? Does the fact that the Hogettes dressed up instead of just showing up in street clothes make their appreciation any greater? So why dress that way for an induction ceremony unless they just want to make sure that everyone knows THEY were there?

    The event would have been no better or worse without them, right?

    And I'm not suggesting people be kept out or be told what to wear. It just seems to me that even though you can wear what you want and do what you want, something inside should just tell you "hey, today is about THEM, maybe I should just skip it." Kind of like when chicks go to a wedding they don't upstage the bride, it's HER day.

    I highly doubt that Monk or Green gave the Hoggettes a second of thought.

    And comparing the HOF to a wedding is a worse miss than Padres bats!!!
    A wedding is invitation only!!!
    HOF is open to fans and as I keep asking "how can a few seconds of Hoggettes footage take away for a 2-3 hour program?"

    We get it... you hate fans that wear anything more than a jersey.
    Stop trying to justify your hate.

    I'm not surprised you missed the comparison.

    Sometimes in life, **** ain't about you. Most people know when that is and act accordingly.

    With this I would say a definite no!

    On this though as my opinion it does not really matter because because if they just showed up in a plain t-shirt and a pair of slacks or come as a Hoggette they are appreciating the player the same.

    I do understand where you are coming from. my only problem is this. The media is the bigger Attention Whore in this for showing the Hoggettes instead of showing entirely the player being inducted into the Hall of Fame. I do not blame the Hoggettes but I blame the Media for showing them. They want to show the elephant in the room instead of what they need to do is show the Inductee. That is where my flames are at.

    This is where I do not really have an answer for but this. It would not really matter if a Hoggette was there or not.

    There is my answers.

    Attention Whores

    Not changing the subject, the fans are the subject. Also, I'm not trying to argue anything, just stating my opinion as you were. You and RTL were the ones crying that it was a personal attack.

    Just making an analogy that it's the fans that make or break, in this case, a sport. All fans, painted or otherwise.

    Of course it's about being noticed by the media, but it's also about being notice by the players they are there to see and honor. It's a great feeling to be at training camp cheering for your favorite player and have them wave at you in acknowledgment. Do you think those players being honored didn't get a warm feeling inside to see that after all these years there are still fans out there that remember them and honor their accomplishments?

    No, that was never stated or implied. Just my opinion. It is again your assumption of another personal attack.
    That's all they were doing was honoring the players and their careers in fan fashion, rather than the stuffy suit and tie way.

    Why is it a shame? Football is an action sport. The players get pumped up when the fans do. If we all just sat around and watched from our seats then we might as well be watching a croquet or chess match. The activity is all part of the addicting atmosphere of being at a live game. So heres to you :icon_toast: and heres to a great 08-09 season :icon_toast: Go Chargers! :abq1:

    I'm laughing so hard. :rolleyes:

    I'm a college graduate but I don't know what "dont" means. :rolleyes:
    Assuming you meant "don't?" :rolleyes:

    For some reason, I'm not as entertained by your spelling error as you were with mine. :icon_huh:


    No come back is better than your's.
    If your son is making them for you, tell him he needs to pick a better group of friends.

    I guarantee the people who attended the HOF didn't walk out saying "those Hoggettes ruined the whole experience." It only ruined things for SL and RTL!!! :yes:

    Savage Lizard and RTL have their right to their opinions though.

    We can just disagree. As well do not go on the attack on them due to their opinion. Attack the post and not attack them.
