Al Davis: Celebrating His Amazing Life and Accomplishments

I write this article with a 2,000-pound heart.

An NFL giant has passed away today at age 82, so today, I write this article in celebration. No—not in celebration of his death but in celebration his life in football and his many accomplishments.

Everyone loves to talk about what a rebel he was as he did things his own way, but it's much deeper than that. He was an innovator—giving opportunities to many that otherwise wouldn't get one and had an eye for talent like no other.

He is actually responsible for the NFL we have today.

I even wonder how much Raider fans would love the game of football if not for the vibe and mystique of the Raiders.
