RIP Al. I hope he died peacefully. This man accomplished tremendous things in Oakland and I'll be pulling for the Raiders tomorrow.

I must admit, I ''loved to hate'' the man at times. I think it was the flamboyancy, but I am saddened for his family and his organization at his passing. He lived a long, fulfilling life and bless him in his passing.

The Raiders may become truly formidable as a result...

I feel the same as Alaska. Nothing more to add. Good post Alaska.

RIP Al!

Yes sorry he passed on and condolences to his family. But I was no fan of his by any means. Mr. Davis did a lot for the NFL from what is written but reading the articles of his character over the years were less than what you would call sane or normal. Although to be fair there are very few owners in the league that I would say that I admire.

The man definately had his own approach and didn't give a dam what anybody else thought.He was a Raider I'd thought would make it to 100.
They'll Never be another AL DAVIS!(Even though JJ Tries)
