The death of Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis today at his Piedmont home marks the end of an era for the Raiders organization.
With the Raider Nation part of the East Bay's fabric, it's likely that many local fans are glued to their TVs today listening to sports pundits wax eloquent about his often controversial controlling leadership style, his fiery moodiness and his phenomenal knowledge of the game after 52 years in the NFL.
What are your favorite Davis stories? Did he make you furious at times? Have you forgiven the team for its move to Los Angeles? What do you think the future holds now that this Godfather-like leader has passed away?
Will you be headed to or other Raiders friendly watering hole to raise a glass in his honor? Or perhaps you'll stop by The Raider Image store at Southland Mall to pick up some team swag.
