          "NFL Hall of Fame
          Class of 1992
          Team, League Administrator
          (Wittenberg College, Syracuse)
          1963-1965 Oakland Raiders, 1966-Present Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders

          Allen Davis ... As AFL commissioner, forced quick merger with NFL, 1966 ... Davis-led Raiders had best record in pro sports, 1963-1991, won Super Bowls XI, XV, XVIII ... AFL Coach of the Year, 1963 ... Only person to serve in pros as personnel assistant, scout, assistant coach, head coach, general manager, commissioner, team owner/chief executive officer ... Born July 4, 1929, in Brockton, Massachusetts ... Died October 8, 2011, at age of 82."

          Quite a resume, a heck of a legacy. It cannot be denied that Al Davis helped to make the NFL what we all love today. His passion for the game is unparalleled. Always the maverick, but a guy who took this game and made it unique. There will probably never be another that affects the game as much as Al Davis. My deepest respect and condolences go out to Raider Nation today. When you guys get down to Houston this weekend, "Just Win, Baby!"

              RIP to one of the cornerstones of the NFL. Al Davis and his beloved Raiders are a franchise that anchored the AFC for decades.

              Thoughts and prayers go out to the Davis family and the Oakland Raider fan base.

                  As much as I hated the Raiders, it's a huge loss for the NFL and AFC West. RIP Al Davis, you will be remembered.

                    Not me. The man was very much responsible for making me the Bronco fan I am today. He was much more than just another owner. He's a huge part of the reason I consider the Raiders our only rivalry.

                    He WAS the Raiders, and the Raiders were him. I can't think of any other team where the owner had such a huge impact on it.

                    Without Al, and his team, being a Bronco fan just would not be the same.

                    This is a sad day for all the league, but I feel like I just lost an uncle. Yeah, a crazy one who was not a favorite at family gatherings, but part of the family none the less. A BIG part!

                    I have my TV on the Network now, and will watch all of it.

                    • Very surprising for sure. We all knew he was in poor health but I never expected this so soon. RIP Al Davis. I don't envy the Raiders opponents this week thats for sure.

                      • Sad news, prayers to his family and friends.
                        Anybody cracking jokes or saying bad things about Davis should be ashamed of themselves.

                        • Rip Al, I actually was hoping you'd live forever! Al Davis may have been the craziest person in the NFL but the NFL wouldn't be what it is now without him. Sad moment for football.

                            • Man...That's too bad I know he hasn't been in the best of health, but I sure wasn't expecting this. Up until this point, however, he appeared as sharp as a tack mentally (at least during interviews and such).

                              I used to hate the Raiders like all other Bronco fans. Now I only hate them twice a year, and if they make the playoffs and the Broncos don't, which will be the case this year in all likelihood, I will be rooting for them for two reasons. First of all, their history with the Broncos as a respected rival. Secondly, when "Barrel Man" died, Al Davis sent a silver and black bouquet of flowers to the funeral and personally signed the card. That one act softened me up on the Raiders organization and Al Davis. Barrel Man was honestly someone only we as Bronco Fans really thought something of, but Al Davis's act showed that he could see the bigger picture and put people over the team's rivalry. RIP Al Davis, football rebel and innovator.

                              • Condolences to the Davis family and the Raiders organization. Mr. Davis contributed a lot to the AFC and the NFL, he was one of reasons I love my Broncos so much--He was the man you would love to hate if you were a Bronco fan. God Speed, Al.
