Classic Raiders Newspaper Headlines

I decided to add this new category, "Raiders History" to the boards. I'll be adding more topics within it as I come up with more Raiders History related items.

I'll start this category with a new topic, "Classic Raiders Newspaper Headlines".

I ran across this great old newspaper scan announcing that Al Davis had been hired as the Raiders Head Coach and General Manager, for a combined salary of $20,000 a year.

Classic Headline, "RAIDERS NAME AL DAVIS COACH":
