I asked the same thing. Makes no sense to me. Al Davis and the NFL are almost synonymous...
As much as I hate the Raiders and love Al Davis jokes, the guy did a lot for the game and the NFL. I think I will actually miss the old guy.

RIP

A giant of the game. Godspeed Al Davis.
F**K THE RAIDERS
A total original. He was a true legend who deserved that status.

RIP - Mr. Davis

What's the problem? It wasn't a classless remark.

He was obviously not the easiest man to work with. But his bullheaded desire to do everything his way is part of what shaped the Raiders, the modern NFL, and the bay area sports landscape.

One thing that just about everyone agreed on about him is that he knew football like no other owner.

His style was a tough fit with the complexities of today's pro sports business. He was, more than any other owner, a combination of fan and GM. The sort of combination that many of us on this board obviously fantasize about being.

Most of us are too young to have seen anything but the misfit that didn't want to work within the confines of salary caps, league wide TV deals, and commissioner autocracy. But there was a time when guys like him were able to do great things, and built the NFL into the most popular sport in the country.

As a tip of my cap to one of the long time legends of the game, I will be rooting for the Raiders this sunday.

RIP Mr. Davis
