    He overstayed his welcome by about a decade or so but before the turn of the millenium he had one of the best winning percentages in football and led his team to quite a few Super Bowls and playoff games.

    While he himself was integral to the league as we know it, I think until recently he really did the Raiders a disservice.

    Wild guy and he'll surely be missed, but no way the Raiders are worse off today had he retired 5-10 years ago.

    May the Raiduhs play truly inspired football tomorrow.


    Yes, I'm not above using death for the Titans benefit.

    RIP Al......You were a visionary.

    For those of you too young to remember, the NFL would be a whole lot different today if Al Davis was not involved. More-so than any owner, he was an integral part of the growth of the sport we all love today.
