Ode to Al Davis, Asshole – RIP

17 Oct

I am a Raiders fan. I have been a Raiders fan ever since my older brother became one 25 or more years ago. I had no idea who Al Davis was, no real idea about football, just that we hated the Broncos, and the Raiders hated the Broncos, so we loved the Raiders.

It’s really perfect logic for a Raiders fan.

The NFL wouldn’t be what it is today without Al Davis, and part of that is precisely because the man was an ass. “Just Win, Baby” isn’t the motto of a “nice guy.” And, you know what, that’s okay.
