A History of Al Davis’ Gangster Moves
Al Davis, one of the NFL's most prolific and controversial owners, passed away over the weekend at the ripe age of 82. Davis was the owner of the Oakland Raiders from 1972 until the day he died. A longtime thorn in the side for the commissioner's office, Davis feuded with the league over relocating his franchise to Los Angeles in 1982 before it returned to Oakland in 1995. Davis was also the first owner to hire minorities with former head coaches Tom Flores, a Latino, and Art Shell, an African American. Davis wasn't always right. He made just as many enemies as he did friends but he will always be remembered as one of the NFL's most loved icons.
