Oakland Raiders Owner Al Davis Dead at 82 - ABC News

One of the most important figures in NFL history, Al Davis, has passed away. He was 82. The Hall of Fame Oakland Raiders owner with the "Just win bady!" motto was no stranger to the public eye. He kept his head coaches on a short leash and even called his own plays at times. He was a fierce competitor who was not afraid to take chances and ruffle feathers. He was the first NFL owner to hire a Latino head coach, Tom Flores, and African American head coach, Art Shell. His commitment to excellence kept the Raiders in contention for decades and even won three Super Bowls. RIP Al.
