Raiders honor Davis with helmet sticker
By Bill Williamson
The Oakland Raiders will honor owner Al Davis -- who died Saturday at the age of 82 -- with a helmet sticker for their game at Houston on Sunday.
The sticker will be on the back of the helmet. It is a black shield with “AL” written in silver letters inside. It’s a stunning addition to an already sharp helmet. Kudos to the Raiders for quickly putting together this tribute as they scrambled to deal with Davis’ death while they were on the road.
Knowing how tight-knit the Raiders are and how much Davis valued loyalty and tradition in the organization, I wouldn’t be shocked of this stickers remain on the helmet for a long, long time.
