More on Al Davis
By Bill Williamson
The speculation of what happens in Oakland in the post-Al Davis world has already begun. Expect to hear more speculation in the immediate future.
Former Oakland coaches John Madden and Tom Flores remember Davis in a radio interview with a San Diego station. Madden referred to Davis as his best friend. Expect to continue to hear speculation that Madden could help assist the Raiders as they adjust to a new era. Don’t be surprised if you also hear speculation about Ron Wolf and Bill Parcells in the future. Wolf worked for Davis and Davis and Parcells have a long history.
Here’s a look at how the Raiders’ search for a stadium may change after Davis’ death.
The Raiders were touched when they saw about 500 fans waiting for them at their facility later Sunday night upon their arrival from their victory in Houston. No, this was not an ordinary regular-season win.
