Bear Down! Wisconsin Misled Us All Into Thinking Rodgers Was Their Guy
Yo, Wisconsin, we're not mad but you have some explaining to do.
Less than a week before Super Bowl LVI some really interesting information with questionable content in regards to the NFL dropped into the hands of the world via social media. One thing revealed is Wisconsin's loyalty to their future Hall-of-Fame quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.
Most diehard football fans are all under the impression that A-aron is finished as a Green Bay Packer. If he hasn't made that decision this might be the proverbial nail in the coffin.
I can not be the only NFL fan shocked but this. The question is why? "Why what?", you might be asking yourself. Why is Aaron Rodger's jersey not the number one NFL jersey sold in Wisconsin?
#1 in the past?
It can't be ruled out but I didn't have any luck when researching whether or not Rodgers' jersey was a #1 in previous years so let's focus on 2020-2021.
Just this week, LIDS, an apparel company primarily known for hat selection but also sells other team gear for fans, dropped a map revealing every state's most told team jersey and most sold player jersey.
Wisconsin's results were confusing because one more assume Green Bay's team and one of its players would be the victor for "Top Selling NFL Jerseys" and "Top Selling NFL Players Jersey" but that is not the case.
Top Selling NFL Jerseys for Illinois for the 2021-2022 season is the Chicago Bears and Green Packers gets the achievement in Wisconsin. Here comes the headscratcher.
Top Selling NFL Players Jersey in Illinois goes just Justin Fields. But if you're assuming it's Aaron Rodgers or any other Packers jersey that claimed the top spot in Wisconsin you would be wrong.
As far as Rodgers is concerned, maybe fans were burnt by the uncertainty of last year's offseason or the drama surrounding his vaccination debacle. Either way, the bragging rights for Wisconsin's Top Selling NFL Players Jersey also goes to Justin Fields, quarterback for the Chicago Bears.
What does this mean? There are a lot of Bears/Fields fans hiding out in America's Dairyland.
