Must Be The Hair: Top Selling NFL Jersey Among Females Is Troy Polamalu’s

According to statistics provided by NFLShop.com to Sports Biz with Darren Rovell, Troy Polamalu’s jersey was the top-seller among the fairer sex, which once again proves my theory: Ladies love Head & Shoulders. Odd theory, I’ll admit, especially in light of the fact I don’t even have the empirical evidence to back it up. Let us just say it’s a work in process and leave it at that, although my suspicions lead me to lean towards the shampoo’s tingling qualities, though.

The top 10 players in jersey sales to females breaks down as follows (via Sports Biz):

  1. Troy Polamalu, Steelers
  2. Peyton Manning, Colts
  3. Drew Brees, Saints
  4. Aaron Rodgers, Packers
  5. Tom Brady, Patriots
  6. Tim Tebow, Broncos
  7. Miles Austin, Cowboys
  8. Eli Manning, Giants
  9. Tony Romo, Cowboys
  10. Jason Witten, Cowboys

Not many surprises here. Quarterbacks are well-represented – and it’s not shocking that a Pittsburgh Steelers player tops the list, given that their fanbase is amongst the most passionate as well as most likely to require recurring purchases of the same jersey due to barbecue sauce stains and excessive stretching of said jersey, at least amongst Steelers Nation’s female contingent.

And before we begin to make too many generalizations regarding the motivations behind why women are more likely to purchase one player’s jersey over another player’s, allow me to add that Brett Favre came in at #11. Just saying.
