Longtime Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis has passed away. Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis dead at 82 - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

I know there is a few Raiders fans here on the NorCal forum.
Love him or hate him, he led the Raiders through their highs and lows. He was instrumental in shaping the NFL into what it is today.
The Raiders will not be the same without his eccentricities.

Hmm, for some reason I read that as Del Davis, as in the Del Davis who sold Christmas trees that stood up to 8' tall:


I had no idea who the greyskullet guy was. Some sports thing I guess.

Bad week for Bay Area a-holes...visionary, super focused tech guy goes way too early and an East Bay institution that had many of my friends feeding out of his hand -- "this year is different". Two icons that will be dearly missed. Keep the Bay Area Weird.

he was tough

i remember how tough Al was. i was at a Raiders, Chargers game in San Diego in the mid 90"s
Al was standing on the sidelines with is back to the field, he took a couple of steps back and was
on the field when one of the Chargers was running a pass route before the game, he was looking back for the ball
and ran over Al in his white jump suit, it was a real hard hit but Al got up and brushed him self off patted the guy on the butt
walked over to the sidelines like nothing happened:eek::eek:

This is the best thing that has happened to the Raiders in 20 years. Now that the mousy mafioso is gone the Raiders will start winning again.

Beautiful game yesterday at Houston. Great to see Heyward-Bey and McFadden doing great. Classic Al Davis picks that people said were busts...the same people that said Al Davis was no longer relevent.

Thanks for making the Raiders what they are today!!!

There is only ONE NATION!!!!!!
