NFL Fans Are Dirt Bags.

PHILADELPHIA, PA - AUGUST 27:  Fans arrive to Lincoln Financial Field wearing the new Philadelphia Eagles jersey and the old Atlanta Falcons jersey of Michael Vick #7 of the Philadelphia Eagles before the Eagles' preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on August 27, 2009 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

CNBC just released the list of the top 20 selling NFL jerseys from April 1st to August 28th. The list has the usual Manning's, Romo's and Brady's, but whats really surprising is who else is on the list.

We will start at the top. The number one selling jersey is the Brett Favre Vikings #4 jersey. He attempted to torpedo the Packers season last year and successfully ruined the Jets season in '08. To follow that up he went to the Packers hated rival the Vikings a la Roger Clemmens (how is his legacy?). Yet some how he has managed to appeal to the bottom feeders of this society who have coughed up their hard earned money to support this man.

The Jay Cutler Bears jersey is number two. Cutler cried and moaned that he didn't want to play for the Broncos this year so loudly that the Broncos were forced to trade him to the Bears for Kyle Orton and two first round picks. Now he is being embraced by the Chicago community as their savior. This was shocking to me until I saw that:

Michael Vick's jersey is number four. I don't need to tell you the Vick story. Vick's jersey sold more than Peyton or Brady. The other amazing thing about this is that Vick wasn't signed with the Eagles until August 13th. Everyone else on this list was having their jerseys on sale for 5 months, Vick's was on sale for 15 days.

Michael Crabtree is #20. This is the funniest of all. Crabtree might not even ever play for the 49ers, making this jersey the worst investment of all. Unless you consider your dignity an investment.
