Oakland Raiders Owner Al Davis Dies

Jim Trotter, via :

“Raiders.com reports that Al Davis has passed away. Few people had as big an impact on the league. RIP, Mr. Davis.”

Wow. Al’s been around the NFL a long, long time.

The good: he hired Madden, the consummate coach. The bad: he failed to invest enough over the past decades to make his team more than a fluke winner. Maybe the next owner will take a more aggressive approach to acquiring talent.
