I received a tweet from Jerry McDonald that Al Davis passed away.  This is truly a sad day for the Raider Nation and the NFL.  He was a scout, coach, commisioner, owner, pioneer.

I hope that Randy and Greg will put together a podcast, celebrating the life of Al Davis.

Rest in peace, Al.

At a loss of words right now.....we have lost our fearless leader.  He is and will forever be the face of the Oakland Raiders.  I hate that he has left us while we are on the upswing.....gone but not forgotten.

A sad day for professional football. An NFL legend has passed on. Today we lost Al Davis. For those who know the history of professional football, then you know the lasting impact he had on the game. He personified all that he stood for, a Commitment to Excellence. Rest in peace Al and thank you for everything.

I just saw that Mr Davis passed away....I am beyond words and incredibly sad right now. Mr Davis was the ULTIMATE RAIDER he was the Raiders and while I know he affected our team somewhat in the later years he always was Mr Raider. The nation lost our leader but the world lost a great football man. Thank you Mr Davis for all you did for football and thank you Mr Davis for EVERYTHING that is Raiders.

Re: Rest In Peace....Sarah Louzao (Raider Greg's mother)
« Reply #48 on: June 15, 2011, 11:34:45 PM »
Greg's mom Sarah Louzao passed away with Greg by her side in Redding, California on June 11th. Greg will be out of town taking care of business at his mom's house until after her memorial service next Thursday June 23rd.

I want to express my sympathy to Greg and his family in his time of loss. Greg lost his father in 2004, so the passing of his mom now is especially hard for him. They had a very close relationship and as you can imagine Greg was a very supportive and devoted son.
Greg,

I was deeply saddened to learn of your mother’s passing. Please know that you are in my thoughts/prayers during this difficult time.

Dr. Robert Albo, former team physican for the Raiders and a longtime medical consultant for the franchise as well as the Golden State Warriors, has died, according to the Raiders’ Web site.

Albo, a close friend of owner Al Davis, was a familiar figure at training camp and team practices.

Some great words about the the late great George Blanda courtesy of another RAIDER great, Phil Villapiano.


"In all honesty" says former Raiders LB Phil Villapiano, "when I missed a tackle or made a bad play out there, I would rather walk off the field in front of John Madden than in front of George Blanda. Madden would yell. George would jump down your throat. He was such a competitor, a perfectionist. In football that's the way I always wanted to be.

"Everyone knows the wild Raider stories. We used to have this air hockey tournament, and when it was all done we'd set up this awards banquet and have dinner and have a little fun. One year George didn't participate and a food fight erupted, and all the local TV cameras were there to catch it. Ha ha, those wacky Raiders.

"Well, the next day Blanda caught up to me. He said I was a disgrace to the Oakland Raiders, that I was ruining the team. I really felt bad about it. One of my teammates said, 'To hell with the old man.'

"I said, 'Not that old man.' When George Blanda spoke you listened."

Now George Blanda was greatness. 26 years in the league and at the end of his career could still come in at backup and lead a game winning drive.
Yeah, I remember when Al decided to cut him...when Blanda almost 49. Blanda was disappointed, and tried to get Al to change his mind (if I remember right...after all it was 35 years ago), because George wanted to make it to 50 and still be an NFL player.

Obviously I wasnt around then, but Phil V was on Sirius today (9/28) and said that he remembered Al drafting a kid from Boston College and that Blanda showed up at Camp (after a Spring/Summer full of nothing but golf!!!) and starred at this kid the everytime he kicked the ball...

...Phil said the kid was so intimidated that he couldn't have made a 2 yard field goal!!!

George eventually got cut during the final cuts, and at that time if you were part of the final cuts you couldn't return to that team.

The kid from BC that Al drafted only made it a few weeks before Al brought in another Veteran kicker and that guy got the Super Bowl ring that year, that George always wanted.

Blanda has been one of the names i've always known as a Raider, going back to listening to my father teach me about football and the raiders.

He will be missed.
A reporter asked Davis about the efficancy of the team’s background checks considering Kiffin and Cable’s history:  “We’re very bad at it,” Davis said.

You're right.  He felt at least he could have kicked extra points.  Blanda at 80 would have had a better passing rating then Jamarcas Russell

George Blanda > Brett Favre.

Brett might hold the records, But George Blanda was the CONSUMATE IRONMAN.. Playing football so late into his age, & to play back in a era when the bumps were louder and the bruises were harder.

Seabass needs to watch footage where Blanda took us to the playoffs on that 50+ yarder against the KC Cheifs!!!

Hello Raider Nation,
Like you ALL i was deeply saddened with the passing of George Blanda. I remember back in 1970 when George had a Great year as a comeback player (kicking those field goals as ONLY George Could). He inspired America that you can accomplish anything and that age was just a number. I was a 10 year old child when this happened and i still marvel at what George has accomplished! He played in 340 games-no other player has done that. He also led the now defunct Houston Oilers to two titles in 1960,1961. Al Davis obtained George's rights for a $100 waiver fee - best 100 dollars he has Ever spent i imagine! I talked to Les Husman. He played for the Chicago Cardinals against Blanda's led Bears in the mid 50's-quite a rivalry in the windy city. They were also teammates on the Houston Oilers staff-the stories he told are priceless! You are Dearly Missed George and Raider Nation is forever Grateful!!!! I'll be at Molly's sportsbar tonight wearing a Raiders shirt and making a toast to George! My thoughts and prayers are with the Blanda family. Thanks for the memories George! :O) God Bless!! :O)

Never said it was illegal back then.  But as a player you were always taught not to use your helmet as a weapon or lead with your head.  Sorry Raidernitemare, I didn't know Raidernation was a gang.    Looks like for some of you, being a raidernationnaire means disregarding any reality distorting your view of the raiders or any of their players (except JM)

PED weren't illegal in Baseball yet those who took them are called cheaters.  You want to honor the Raider history, you honor both the good and the bad

I forward your post to Sarah Palin.  She will be contacting you very soon.  Tatum was a head-hunter.  He used his helmet as a weapon and took shots at other players heads.  A targeted forearm to the helmet after a play is dirty.  Even in the Sammy white hit he lead with his helmet and it was a helmet to helmet hit. 
DUDE GET OVER IT!!!....IN THOSE DAYS THE RULES WERE DIFFERENT IN THE NFL, TATUMS HITS WERENT ILLEGAL OR ELSE THEY WOULD OF BANNED HIM FROM PLAYING....STOP HATING ON MR. TATUM(R.I.P)....MAYBE IF YOU DONT LIKE WHAT HE DID THEN MAYBE YOU SHOULD EVALUATE YOURSELF TO SEE IF YOUR A REAL RAIDER FAN! ???....MAYBE YOUR ONE OF THEM PUSSY PATRI-RATS BANDWAGON FAN....REAL RAIDERS FOR LIFE FANS UP IN HERE, HOMIE.....FUCK ALL YOU HATERS!!!!! :o :o :o

Helmet to helmet became illegal in 1996. Tatum retired in 1980.

and thats why were bashing you because you need to be bashed why? because your a fucking retard

I forward your post to Sarah Palin.  She will be contacting you very soon.  Tatum was a head-hunter.  He used his helmet as a weapon and took shots at other players heads.  A targeted forearm to the helmet after a play is dirty.  Even in the Sammy white hit he lead with his helmet and it was a helmet to helmet hit.

Slagging off a great Raider player like Jack Tatum is fucked up, especially so soon after his passing, its totally out of order. Millernation you're a disgrace to the Raider Nation and you should be ashamed of yourself. I'm not going to stoop to name calling but some of the shit you come out with is uncalled for. You need some dignity and some class and should stop posting until you get some! Go Raiders!!!

Why are you offended. Why is expressing the truth (from what I see of it) bashing a raider player.  First, are they above bashing? Jamarcus Russell was bashed all the time.  Being a Raider fan doesn't change reality for either of us.  Was the woman from Illinois bashing Raider players with her call to the Boneline?

My belief is that some of those here are upset about me calling Tatum, and particularly that hit, dirty would have called someone like Mel Blount dirty if he had done it to a Raiders receiver.  I bash who needs to be bashed and praise who needs to be praised, U DIG?

A contact sport, is it really, damn I didn't know it was a contact sport.  The hit was dirty.  Man up, grow a pair and admit it.  If Mel Blount was to have done the same thing to Branch, you would be calling for Blounts head
You still continue to bash Raider players, yet you then follow it up by saying if  ( INSERT PLAYER) WOULD HAVE DONE THIS THEN YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN OFFENDED. I AM OFFENDED BY YOU ALWAYS BASHING RAIDER PLAYERS, U DIG?

RIP TATUM.  But don't give the impression Jack Tatum wasn't a dirty player.  Raider fans won't like this but the hit on stingley was very dirty.  The ball wasn't catchable.  Tatum, like he loved to do hit the man leading with his helmet.  No one also seems to remember when Little Wendell Tyler ran tatum over in a game against the Rams.  

Nothing wrong with a big hitter but Tatum was a known head-hunter.    

FUCK OFF DICKHEAD.

It's fucking football, a contact sport, not pussy ass soccer. Man up and grow a pair. He did not intend to do harm when he hit him period. Let the man rest in peace bitch! I know my Raider brothers got my back on this one!

R.I.P.

Jack Tatum epitomized the Raider spirit.

They just don't make 'em like that anymore.

Jack Tatum was the quintessential Oakland Raider. He was a great player for the greatest organization in the history of Pro Football. This season is for you Jack, I just wish you could have stuck around to see the Raiders return to greatness. But I hope our defense takes your spirit with them to the field every sunday this season...RIP Jack Tatum Raider 4 life

Just heard about the passing of Jack Tatum and i am truly saddened by this, the man was a true legend and a standard bearer for the Raider organisation both on and off the field, i only hope that now he gets what he deserves and is elected into the Hall of Fame at the earliest opportunity. R.I.P Jack Tatum.
