Al Davis is one of the (if not THE) reason that I love the Oakland Raiders. He is and will always be one of the main reasons that the NFL is the most popular past-time in American culture. He will always represent something revolutionary, something original... something outlaw...
This thread is to share your memories or favorite quotes of the "Man in Black" Mr. Al Davis himself. Here are a few of my favorites....

"We dont take what the defense gives us. We take whatever the hell we want"

"The quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard"

"Once a Raider, always a Raider"

"Time never stops for the great ones"

"You have to win with the vision of the Super Bowl...."

and the obvious.... "Just win baby!"

Al punkin Lane. He turned out to be wrong but still makes me lmao "I realize you didn't want to draft Jamarcus Russell. He is a great player. Get over it!"

Any time that Al spoke, I listened. He was still always so sharp, even near the end. He had so many stories to tell.

I hear he would talk to the fans from time to time on game day, does anyone have any experience with this? or have seen him do so?

Say what you will about AL, but I cant help but have the upmost respect for him, and everything he has accomplished. I know he made really questionable decisions, some attributed it to his age; but no one wanted to win more than him.

AL got passed by "corporate NFL" just like the rest of us are getting screwed by corporate world. In the grand scheme of things, it's destined to fail. He has my sympathy for trying to resist.

Davis was a wise man, but he needed to delegate sooner than her did....probably giving orders to the devil himself right now !!
