Rest in peace Todd. Never forgotten.



First tight end in NFL history to catch over 90 passes in two different seasons. He had 92 catches in the 1983 Superbowl season, and 95 catches in 1986.

Former Raiders Asst. Coach/Fresno St. Head Coach Jim Sweeney dies at 83



After two years at Fresno State ('76-'77), Coach Sweeney took to the NFL as an assistant coach for the Oakland Raiders in John Madden’s final season ('78), then one year with the St. Louis Cardinals under Bud Wilkinson. Sweeney was hired back at Fresno State following the 1979 season with the Cardinals, and remained a Bulldog until his retirement following the 1996 season.

Al Davis died of heart failure, had throat surgery 3 days before his death
« Reply #96 on: October 28, 2011, 10:36:21 PM »
Former Raiders owner Al Davis died of heart failure
San Jose Mercury News

So the rumors I had been hearing for a couple years were true. Al was living at the Oakland Airport Hilton, where the Raiders stay the night before all the home games. I had heard from a couple of sources that he was living there because he wanted to be closer to the team, and it was easier for him getting in and out with no stairs.

Also, these articles confirm that he did also have skin cancer problems. I wonder if having surgery three days before he died had any relation to his death. Seems like quite a coincidence.

Rest in Peace Al.  You are were a pioneer and a true legend.

The winningest sports franchise in history 1963-1991 - .653 winning pctge - absolutely amazing.

The best part of it was, that still wasn't good enough and you wanted better.

May you rest easy; you have left a wonderful mark on this world.

Thanks to Randy and Greg for putting together a podcast so fast for us and to celebrate the life of Mr. Davis.

4 those on here and other places who kept saying I wish Al Davis would die so this team could become normal, FUCK OFF. 

As life must live death must die.  I'm not one to dwell on death.  Everyone does go sooner or later.  I am glad Al Davis made it this far.  GOD only knew the true man and will judge him for it. 

Does anyone know if Marc Davis has the same passion as Al for football and the raiders?  With the manager of the general partners gone, will the other partners fight for control?  Will Marc try to cash in and sell his share?

I do hope both the raiders players and houston players(if not all players this weekend) wear a black patch to honor the passing of a pro football legend

Twice this week I've woken up to read about the death of an icon. First Steve Jobs and now Al Davis. I'm not over the death of Clarence Clemons, and now this? Both Jobs and Davis did things their own ways, the rest of the world be damned. Sometimes they were right, sometimes they were wrong, but they never bowed to others' opinions. People are saying reaction to the iPhone 4S is muted, people are disappointed, blah blah blah, and so far it's the best selling phone ever. Sometimes people pile on just for the sake of piling on. JaMarcus Russell was the biggest bust in history. Ping is a stupid add-on to iTunes. Whatever. I love my Apple toys and I love the Raider Nation. Loud and proud, baby. If I were on the Texans, I'd be worried about Sunday's game. The Raiders are going to bring it hard.

I have to say its a great thing to see the entire sports world coming together to recognize AL DAVIS & HIS RAID-UHS for all he has given & the influence to which he embodied as a man. My belief is one thing a man can control in their life is the respect they receive. AL demanded respect as he deserves it. When asked by opposition "What do you think about AL?" My reply is simple, "I respect him." Only had a chance to see AL DAVIS once in KC. He was on the bus after the game & as they pulled out of the gates, MR. DAVIS held his fist up with a huge "Just Win Baby" grin as he looked out the window to see His Nation, the Raider Nation standing before him.

WE RESPECT YOU AL, REAL MEN WEAR BLACK!

The thing that i take away from the passing of Al Davis is that everyone, i mean everyone, knows the contribution he made to the NFL. Even Lane Kiffen reflected this way.

SHORT tribute message to Al Davis

I'm going to string the messages together, back to back....in one long audio file. We already had about 15 calls from this morning about Al, so we'll be getting a lot more I'm sure.

So upset- it feels like a family member has died. I know he'll be watching tomorrow's game in a front row seat in the sky. It's horrible that he had to pass now just as we were getting good again.

After 82 special years our brilliant leader is now gone. Rest In Peace Al. I know you belong among the stars because the sky is black and silver.

A true true legend not just for The Raiders but for the NFL. You will be missed Al.

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.
