    RIP Al Davis.

    You may have owned the Raiders but your contribution to the game was irreplaceable. Thoughts and prayers to the Davis family.

    Before the merger, the NFL didn't want the Broncos, but Al insisted they take all the AFL teams.

    RIP Al Davis. Despite your crazy tendencies, you changed the way football was looked at and played, and that cant be ignored or forgotten.

    Although being a hated rival, the NFL is better when the Raiders are relevant, slow but surely they are becoming relevant again but unfortunately you will not be around to witness it .
    I really miss the days when both the Raiders and the Broncos were good. It made being a Bronco fan a lot more fun.

    Bad news for the Broncos. The Raiders might actually become good again.

    The NFL lost one of its legends. Al Davis has to be given credit for doing things his own way. My condolescences to his family, friends, and the Raiders' Nation. You have lost your leader, but his legacy will last forever in the lores of football.

    Brief history and picture of a younger Davis. He did some remarkable things.

    We loved to hate you and you loved to hate us! 82? I hope I make it that long. I hope Oakland keeps their bad guy persona going.

    Please everyone stay respectful. If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all.
    He was a legend in the NFL, we'll behave.

    Losing a rival is tough. He was the heart and soul of a team we fought forever. Hats off to him.
