Default Al Davis Passes Away

RIP AL

He may have been a bit crazy at times, but he did a lot for the NFL.

No kidding. Always tried to keep it exciting and controversial. RIP, brash crazy dude.

I'll bet the "no news conference, but a GIANT FREAKING HEADLINE on the homepage" was his idea.

Very sad day. He did things his way and lived with the motto of "just win, baby". I am sure he will take that to his next position.

On a side note: Are we screwed? Will the Raiders play like world beaters in an emotional display to win one for Al?

No, the Texans aren't screwed. I doubt his death has any impact on this game. If whoever inherits the Raiders is competent that could have a huge impact on the AFC West. The Raiders have been terribly mismanaged since the Texans' inaugural season. If they suddenly become properly managed again they could become a force to be reckoned with. In addition, I wonder if the new ownership will move the Raiders back to Los Angeles.

Holy crap...I always joked around about the old man outliving us all...

Didn't expect to wake up to this news anytime soon. Its kind of strange, as much as I hated how involved he was with the team over this past decade...its weird to think of a situation where he wouldn't be there. As much as I despised Al Davis at times, I really wanted him to see the Raiders win at least another SB.


R.I.P. Mr. Davis.

I am now looking for a ticket to the game. I feel I must go now. Have an option on a single-ticket in section 123. All my Raider buds can't go, so that sucks.

You know the Raiders coaching staff will play this for all it's worth in tomorrows game, so I really don't like the timing of this contest from the Texans perspective. And the PA at the game will probably even have to make an announcment prior to KO about Davis's passing.
Re Davis the man, well he's definitely one of those unusual people who really fits the old cliche about throwing the mold away after they created him. One of a kind, and a very important and influential person in the history of the league.

I suspect there will be a moment of silence in remembrance of an NFL icon.

Until the last decade he was one of the best talent evaluators that has ever lived. A true visionary he was ruthless in the boardroom and would do everything humanly possible to win. Wish we had an owner like that.

I like the way he was a dissenting figure among the owners/league. He always gave the commissioners what they deserved. My only thing bad to say about Al is his will to win extended among the field and into the courtroom.

Al was directly responsible for franchises being able to move/hold cities hostage and demand public financing for stadiums. He and Jerrah (PSL's) really put it to the fanbase. This was just a part of Al's true genius/visionary.

RIP Al Davis.
