Al Davis, RIP

The longtime Raiders owner died over the weekend. He made wonderful contributions to the game, whether to the growth of the AFL, the Raiders’ success in the ’70s, or in the areas of hiring minority coaches and executives. But I see this much like Michael Jackson’s death- everyone effusively praising someone they had not a single positive word to say about for the last 15 years of his life.
