End of an Era: Al Davis 1929-2011

Enigmatic Raiders owner Al Davis has died at age 82. His passing ends a legendary career as NFL head coach, commissioner and owner. The 1992 Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee had been suffering from poor health for several years.

"Based on personal achievement, team achievement and contributions to the game, no one has had a more profound and lasting impact on professional football," Davis' biography says on the team's website, Raiders.com.

The team posted a large tribute to Davis on the team's website, also noting that more information will be posted today, regarding the circumstances of his death.

RIP Al

Mark Davis said #1 that "we are trying to build a stadium here" meaning Oakland. Then he said" if we can’t build a Stadium in Oakland, we've been researching other sites in Northern California and talking with people in Southern California. If we can't get a stadium build in Oakland than LA is a possibility, anywhere is a possibility." LA times is doing a poll to see how many people want the Raiders in L.A. The good news for REAL Oakland Raiders fans is that the people developing the New LA stadium want some control & ownership of the Team they bring in & the Davis family will never give up any control of the Raiders. But Real OAKLAND Raider Fans must stop this LA momentum. Vote No to bringing the Raiders to LA.
