Raiders' owner, Al Davis, dead at age 82
« on: October 08, 2011, 12:24:38 PM »
I've never liked the Raiders, but Al Davis was much a part of football in this country as Vince Lomabardi, Tom Landry, Bill Belichick, Mike Ditka, Jerry Jones, Lamar Hunt, etc.

Lord have mercy!

There were times I did not understand Al Davis, but I have been following the Raiders as my AFC West Team for a while...

Rest in peace.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
