Al Davis was the driving force behind the AFL, whose merger with the NFL was the impetus for pro football overtaking baseball and becoming the nation's new pastime. What we watch on Sundays now is AFL football, which was Al Davis' vision. If there was a Mt Rushmore of pro football, Al Davis should be on it. But he had no business running the Raiders at the end. And everyone except Davis knew it.
