    Here are the top ten in order of sales from 1APR05 to 31MAR06.
    Steelers
    Eagles
    Raiders
    Cowboys
    Patriots
    Packers
    Colts
    Bears
    Giants
    Broncos

    The Steelers are first for the first time since 1980.

    Packers, Raiders, and Cowboys seem to be in the top 5 annually regardless of their records. The Packers have slipped to 6th.

    Living in Northern California it is interesting that Raiders apparel is banned in my son's school district. It is considered "gang clothing".

    Remember if you don't buy at the Packer Pro Shop, the Packers only get 1/32 of the NFL profits.

    At the Pro Shop 100% goes to the Packers. Packer Pro Shop is #1 in the league in sales.

    AJ Hawk jerseys should add to sales.

    Raider stuff is popular with gangs. I really don't know why but the school in their wise rules for rearing the next generation of voters thinks 49'er stuff is okay and Raider stuff induces crime.

    I don't expect us to be chanting "We're #6, we're #6... anytime soon.

    I have heard of Raiders apparel being sported by some gangs. Its not like Al Davis is a member of the crips, but there is a tacit endorsement of the gang culture by the Raiders organization. The clothes put out by the team, the atmosphere encouraged in the stadium and in other teams' stadium, the absence of any clear statements from the organization trying to distance itself from that culture. Another reason why it could be thought of as gang related is the early 90's gangsta rap group NWA, who always wore black and would often sport Raiders caps, etc.

    However, I had no idea of how many teams are associated with gangs. I found this online for a little proof.
