Raider's owner Al Davis dead at age 82

Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis dies at 82 - ESPN


I somehow imagine this is bittersweet for many Raider fans out there. I would like to remember Davis for his incredible work he's done long ago. God speed Al and thanks for all the contributions to this league.

Legend. I loved Al Davis attitude and he was a throwback. He acted crazy sometimes(hired Lane Kiffin), but he was an original. RIP

^ Yeah although sad, I too think the fans are probably thinking of this as X-Mas early. Now they probably will become a really decent team over the next few yrs.

Rip Al Davis. Unfortunately, for many of us, some of his most recent actions will overshadow the major and many accomplishments he made in his service and advancement of pro football. He will be missed. Rip

Wow. Certainly a polarizing figure in recent years, but overall an NFL icon. RIP Mr. Davis.

Re: Raider's owner Al Davis dead at age 82

He was such a maverick in his younger years. It was kinda sad to see such a once powerful figure become a caricature of himself. RIP Al Davis.

Re: Raider's owner Al Davis dead at age 82

I think media made a lot out of nothing, in terms of Al Davis, recently. He is a great owner, a real pioneer and visionary. I feel a lot of people don't understand what he has done for the sport of football.

Re: Raider's owner Al Davis dead at age 82

If I was an Oakland fan, I would have some very mixed feelings. In many ways, Davis made signifiant contributions to football as we view it today, both as to how the game is played and how it is enjoyed as a form of entertainment. At the same time, for the last 5-8 years, it seems he has just wacko nutzoid. An uber-Vinny in many ways.

RIP Al Davis. You were truly a unique character.

RIP Al!! I'm probably one of the few who likes the Raidahs and Al, I hope this loss inspires the team to the playoffs, Al Davis is a legend. Second big loss of a visionary this week in the Bay are, Steve Jobs and Al.
