It's Dan from Buffalo and I am very sad to hear that u have lost your leader and a very important figure in the country. I wrote this on our site and wanted to share it with u.
Al Davis and Ralph were very important in building what we have today in the NFL. Those 2 visionaries built something powerful that will last for many many years. We were lucky to have had Al in our lives. The history between Oakland and Buffalo are forever entwined and it was a pleasure to have seen both franchises succeed at numerous times over the years.
We have lost 2 very important people this week that helped change the country in Steve Jobs and Al Davis. The country mourns as we respect this loss. Neither of you will ever be forgotten, your legacies will shine bright forever.
The NFL would never have been created if it wasn't for Davis. The man lived life his way and did things his way. We can never forget that men like him and Jobs see the world in different ways and sometimes, we can't understand that, but, they have left a mark that will never ever be forgotten or replaced.
I hope that u know that the country mourns with u in this hard time. To his family, his extended football family, and all his loved ones, we mourn with u.
