We knew the day would come and it arrived today. I grew up with Al Davis in my consciousness, being a Raider devotee from boyhood, Mr. Davis always seemed present. Whatever your opinion may be of the man, he had an amazingly strong will and a singular devotion to the Raiders. He will be greatly missed.
Autumn is the perfect season for Al Davis to make his exit and pass to the next life - for this season has the Autumn Wind and but for Al Davis there would not have been so many of the great deeds on football fields the past 48 years and all the memories for us associated with them.
God, Bless Al Davis, accept him into Your eternal light and grant him eternal happiness.
