Al Davis Died

Recommended Posts

Sad news from ESPN ticker this AM.

It said Al Davis of the Raiders passed away.

Like him or not, he helped with the NFL-AFL merger and always would give the old geezers or players with problems a second chance.

It will be interesting to see the direction the Raiders take without him.

We will miss good ole Al Davis. :(

Wow, that's a shock! He was a major influence on the NFL. He will be missed.

That said, it's sad to say, but it's probably the best thing that's happened to the Raiders in a very long time.

You're right on, Glenn. He was good for football, but he hasn't been too good for the Raiders the past few+ years.

I liked Al Davis' style, I have always been a Raider's fan from afar, I know a lot of people didn't care for him. There have been quite a few nutty owners in professional sports, another former Oakland owner, Charlie Finley for one. You may not care for these renegades but I find hard not to admire them for their innovations and success.

I can honestly say that I've been following football since the 70's and never knew that Al Davis was born the next town over from me in Brockton, MA until recently.
