    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.

        RIP Mr. Davis, a true icon of football.

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

            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.

              Sorry for the loss. Al Davis meant a lot to pro football. The AFC may not even exist if not for him, he put an end to a 6 year long war between the two conferences and brought them together in the merger.

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

                  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.

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

                      RIP Al Davis.

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

                            Even though his later years will hurt his legacy in many fans' eyes, Al Davis had a REALLY good mind for the game.

                            He did a hell of a lot for the AFL and the eventual NFL.

                            May he R.I.P.

                              RIP Mr Davis

                              You were as big as anyone in making the NFL what it is today.

                              I usually reserve this for Broncos and Bronco fans but I think Mr Davis deserves it

                              Time to build on the win and grow the team from some solid play higher level of play

                                What an icon. As a fan of a rival team I dispised his team but you have to admire the man that made it possible for the merger of the NFL and AFL.

                                Without Davis the Broncos and many other AFL teams may have never made it to what we know as the NFL today.

                                My prayers are with the family, friends and the Raider Nation for the loss of the GREAT Al Davis.

                                May You Rest In Peace.
