Default The billboard is up...



I donated, but did not expect much at all to happen. The people behind the site proved me wrong though. Even though our team blows, I'm proud to say we have some of the most diehard fans out there. This billboard was put up today and the local media is already going crazy over it...wonder how long until ESPN and NFL find out about it .

Might not be such a bad idea, although I would hope he knows a new HC is needed by now.

$5,500 for a month ,its usually around $10,000 for a billboard in a location on the freeway like that, but apparently they got a deal because the guy was a Raider fan from what I hear.

What difference will a GM make? He'll just be a puppet.

But, I guess you really can't put up a billboard that says "Hey Al, do the right thing - please, hurry up and die."

That would be in bad taste.

No one wants the man to die...well hopefully no one. However, its apparent his time is over. He made the Raiders who they are, and was key in the franchise being so successful many years ago...but he's also key in destroying the franchise he helped create.

Also, the petition is asking:
*We kindly ask for Mr. Allen Davis to remove himself as general manager of the Oakland Raiders Organization.

*We ask for a new General Manager to be hired with previous experience and success in the NFL.

*We ask for a new, SuperBowl Caliber Head Coach/Director of Football Operations to be hired replacing Tom Cable. Suggestions include Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden; or any other coach with similiar credentials.

*We ask the Owner and new regime to give the new Coach substantial power in hiring Assistants, installing football philosophies and most roster decisions.


The chance of him listening is next to nothing, but still, Raider fans felt like it was time to say something after 7 years of crap with no hope of things getting better.

Al was the original maverick owner wasn't he? His way or no way...

I have read his health is poor. He's an original for sure.

Yeah, Davis is pretty ruthless, prettying interesting read on how he "acquired" the Raiders. He doesn't look to be in the best shape either, he is 80 but looks much older. I hope he lives long enough to see the Raiders win another Superbowl, would hate to see him go before he sees his team return to glory.

Pretty sure we know who would win that contest by a landslide, especially on these forums. I did not know Bud was 86, he's six years older then Davis...damn does he age well. Sadly, I can't say the same for Davis...all those years of losing have to be getting to him.

I don't much care for the Raiders, but the NFL is better when they're relevant, IMO.

If I had a choice between the two of them to own my team it would be the godfather all day everyday and twice on sunday. The guy has made some crazy moves in recent years but he was so on the money for so long he was bad to hit a bad streak sooner or later.

I'm guessing he means the NFL is better when there is more competition. Right now there are a lot of bad teams, and the AFC West is basically a shoe-in for the only decent team in that division (although I was almost proven wrong with the Donks 6-0 start).

And texanhead, if you want your team to go on a record-breaking season losing streak as well, feel free to take him, he's all yours .
