“RIP...Always a winner in my heart...through the UPS and DOWNS one always came out on top.....MANY BLESSINGS
“I had the pleasure of receiving a telehone call from Al at 1:00 AM asking me if I wanted to be a kickoff specialist for Oakland Raiders in 1974. He gave me my first break in making it into the NFL. He was a unique individual and to this day I am proud to relay the story of how I first was introduced to him.
“On this day we remember Al Davis, born on July 4th.
Mr. Davis would be proud today as the Raiders are heading
back to the greatness he was famous for.
“good to see that your vision of picking a punter as 1st draft choice paid off with Ray Guy finally getting in HOF. Now we need to get in Kenny Stabler, who was chosen Quarerback of the decade, 1970's, and one of three on 1st team and only one not in HOF.. Also need Jim Plunkett in HOF as he is only quarterback to win two superbowls who isn't in HOF
“R.i.p. Once a Raider,always a Raider. You are gone, but never forgotten. Raider football baby.
“Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
“Raiders fan since '87, thank you Mr. Davis for helping to make the NFL what it is today and for making one of if not the best organization in sports today. R.I.P.
“As a life long Raiders fan I appreciate and honor Mr. Davis. Thank you for the Raiders and Thank You for the modern NFL that we enjoy today and most of all thank you for being you the inspiration and symbol of one of the greatest franchises in NFL history.
DAVIS--Al. You were a true visionary and genius. You enriched all of our lives. We have all lost a very special person. Your memories will stay with us forever. Donna, Stuart, Cary and LeeRead More
