A cultural icon, Al Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders of the NFL passed away on October 8th.  A straight shooter and rebel, who coined the phrase “Just Win Baby”, lived his life, and ran his team, in the way he wanted to, damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead.  His teams were always stressing the vertical passing game and usually consisted of misfits and “characters” that did not fit well on other teams.  He let them be themselves as long as they won and the strategy usually paid off in victories.  RIP Al Davis.
