A lot of important stuff is going on right now, and some people may not care a lot about this, but when I read the news I felt I needed to post it and show my respects to a great Raider, as we say: ''Once a Raider, always a Raider'' doesnt matter what you are in the organization, everyone is equal, we are all Raiders....some info on him.

Per NFL.com:

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Longtime Oakland Raiders trainer George Anderson has died. He was 82.

The Raiders said Anderson died Thursday morning. No cause of death was given.

Anderson was the first head trainer for the Raiders and served in that role from 1960-94. He developed a knee brace to help quarterback Ken Stabler play after injuring his MCL that eventually was called the Anderson Knee Stabilizer.

General manager Reggie McKenzie, a former player for the Raiders, said he always knew he was in excellent hands with Anderson as his trainer.

Anderson was inducted into the National Athletic Trainers' Association Hall of Fame in 1986. R.I.P to another great Raider.
