Being dead has never stopped Al Davis before, so I can’t see how this will change his management style.
How’d you get a picture of the corpse so soon?
Beelzebub breathes a sigh of relief as he realizes he’ll finally be able to take that vacation he’s needed for so long.
Just Dead, Baby
Look, I’m not going to say I ever liked or respected Al Davis, but…
…well, that’s about it.
Am I the only one that can smell formaldehyde when looking at that picture?
Jon Gruden has issued a statement: “THIS CORPSE. THIS CORPSE WAS A WINNER.”
Commitment to Zombie-lence.
Simon Belmont finished the job.
Was some Apple device keeping Al alive?
I just saw him on TV during last weeks’ game. He looked so healthy and vigorous. I’m shocked!
“The police are searching for one Dr. Van Helsing in connection with Mr. Davis’s death.”
OH GOD KILL IT! KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh wait, nevermind.
Give it a break guys!! Try to show a little respect for the deceased!
I guess he just got tired of calling Pete Rozelle and getting a busy signal; he decided to just go visit him instead.
What. The. Fuck?
How does that thing qualify as human?
Commitment to putrescence.
Wait, did someone destroy his phylactery?
*”Fuck Al Davis, cuase he nver paid us”* – Ice Cube
Oh god, the commments in this thread are fucking EPIC.! I can’t eait till RADAH NATIONS new owner is a corporate suit. Oh the GLORIOUS schendfraude that will take place in O-town. EPIC
Hopefully, between this and the Bills’ resurgence, more light will be shed on just how catastrophically bad Mike Brown is as an owner (and GM).
Also, what’s the over/under on how many days Lane Kiffen parties for?
He will be missed, blah.
/Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer wins.
Cue the ESPN dicksucking montage
(For the phylactery comment)
I’m sure Berman will properly honor his memory with a bunch of “WOOPS!” and “Da Raaaaaaaaaaaaaiders” comments during a video montage
Who had October 2011 in the “Al Davis Fakes His Own Death” pool?
And this comment thread is indeed epic, +1 to Ben, Drew, Stabby Pants, thegrenade, and Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer. A -1 to ron for pleading for respect – on this site – for an 82 year old man who gleefully hated everyone and loved being hated in return. Also, am I the only one surprised that he was only in his early eighties? Awful picture aside, I didn’t realize he was that goddamn young when the Raiders were at their peak.
Over/under on how many super bowls the L.A. Raiders win?!?
/maybe Snyder’s yacht will spring a leak off the coast of South Africa?
He’s not dead. He’s resting following a pronounced ‘BRAAAIIIINS!’
@Ron Take a seat Jaws!
In accordance with Al’s offensive mindset, I hope they set up a trebuchet and chuck his rotting corpse deep.
“Redskins fans are soooo jealous right now.”
So true. So very, very true.
The Zombie Horde must go down, and it must go down haaahd.
But how can they prove it? All they found was an empty coffin and a wooden stake surrounded by ashes.
A least this will keep the Raiders out of L.A.
I’m going to say at least five days and in the offseason he’ll try to go for the next NFL Head Coaching job (I’ll go with Miami).
This picture is going to haunt the front page for at at least a couple of days. Could you guys create a few more articles quickly and speed it up at least?
I guess there’s a new HNIC is hell today. You know Al isn’t taking orders from anyone.
It is nice of you to use a picture from Davis from the 50’s, 1850’s that is.
And sometimes on a dark pre-draft eve you can walk by his office and still hear the whirr of an overhead projector and the click of a stopwatch.
thank god it’s yom kippur otherwise i would have lost my appetite.
I believe he was the last surviving veteran of the War of 1812.
Shit, Al Davis just died. Time to dump my stock in Gazelles and track suits ASAP.
I could have swore he died at least 10 years ago. I guess now it’s official.
I am throwing the bullshit flag, supposedly he was 82. That young man didn’t look a day over 171.
I hear if you say 4.2 three times in front of your mirror with the lights off at night, Al Davis shows up and gives you a 70 million dollar guaranteed contract
This will teach Mr. Davis never to let someone named Mr. Peter Vincent into his close circle of friends.
Soooo, does this mean the Resident Evil franchise is over?
I knew when those pics came out over the summer that he didn’t have much time.
The Raiders teams of the late 60s through the early 80s were amazing – only a few down years 20+ years, four super bowls, seven AFL/AFC championship games *lost*. Al was a scary old dude, but he was a football genius
The first-round-money dreams of hundreds of speedy, stone-handed receivers will be buried with him, in accordance with the prophecy, and special guest Bernard Berrian will organize a 21-drop salute in his honor.
My FFL team’s name is “Corpse of Al Davis”. First, is that name more offensive or less offensive now? Second, should I name next year’s team Corpse of Dan Snyder or Corpse of Bernard Berrian? I’ll consider selling the naming rights to the highest bidder as well.
Raiders for life. One of the most influential sports figures of the 20th century.
“During this indescribably difficult time, let us all reflect upon what it means to be a Raider — let us all reflect upon how privileged we are to be Raiders — and let us all be Raiders.”
