    Uh oh....

    The Raiders have a chance to start getting good now...
    I see the sky is still firmly in place above us.

    As a kid, I was a Raider fan, and this really saddens me.

    RIP, Al.

    He was 82 years old so I have no idea why I'm shocked but I am......shocked may be a strong word but really surprised at the least.

    I can say that he made some really questionable decisions and draft picks but I REALLY respect that he did things his way and didn't care what the NFL or anyone else said about the way he did things.

    He's been the leader of that organization for SO long, it's going to be weird seeing the Raiders moving forward without him.

    It's strange news for sure. Had to know it was coming from the last dozen or so pictures of him that have been released.

    I agree that the team will likely move on and most likely will improve. although they have been improving lately anyway. I think he must have been less involved this year due to health.
    I don't want to include these stats, they make me look worse than I really am.

    Meanwhile Oakland fans rejoice. They now have hope of improving.
