    Why pigs?

    Typical Wednesday, couldn't afford their own players even then.

    Why pigs?

    No, it was a very good parody that wormed it's way into local folklore, fooling united and Wednesday fans alike.

    Why pigs?

    It took me 2 minutes to find 2 Wednesday fans who believed it. Which disproved your argument that no Wednesday fan believed it. Twice.

    Why pigs?

    It was a wind up in a fanzine. Not An Attempt To Rewrite history.

    Why pigs?

    But Wednesday didn't call united pigs until the 70s as far as I can tell. Why wait 70 years?

    Why pigs?

    United fans called Wednesday fans pigs when they changed their badge in the 70s and the owls face looked like a snout. The chant "Jack charlton is dead and the pig fans have fled" proves it dates back to then. It seems to be common consensus that it didn't arise until the late 70s so that leads to the question why Wednesdays fans wouldn't eat bacon 100 years ago but only started calling united pigs in the 70s/80s? Unless they were copying united of course 😉
