AL DAVIS RUMORS & GOSSIP

John Lynch will be as successful as the 49ers allow him to be

I opened Monday’s show from Houston with a segment about consistency, and why bad teams stay bad.The San Francisco 49ers made a bold move Sunday when they hired my friend John Lynch as the general manager.Lynch is a smart guy — he was an excellent analyst at Fox — and I’m wishing him the best of luck, but he doesn’t have any NFL front-office experience.That’s a bold and...

Is Oakland’s Mount Davis Killing Fly Balls?

My favorite part of my job is when players ask me questions.

Ken Stabler was the Oakland Raiders Autumn Wind

"The Autumn Wind is a Stabler,” is how the Oakland Raiders theme song should begin. We always talk about ‘glory years’ with a sense of nostalgia, a sense of better times, a sense of purity. The glory years for the Raiders, however, are always about how they created a culture appreciated by past and present generations alike. There is nothing nostalgic about the idea of The...

Cardiff City owner tells team to shoot more, because ugly men can marry beautiful women

In a strange bit of wisdom, Cardiff City owner Vincent Tan told his players he wanted them to shoot as many times as possible — at least 30 times per game — because scoring goals is like finding a wife. Tan’s logic essentially boils down to this: The more shots you take, the more times you will score. And just like a marriage proposal, if you ask a woman to marry you 50 times...

Report: Raiders refusing NFL orders to paint 50-yard line numbers in gold

Is there a more lovable outlaw organization in sports than the Raiders? Probably not. The team that is notorious for not cooperating with the NFL is once again in the crosshairs of the league, this time for reportedly refusing to follow league directions to paint the 50-yard line numbers at O.co Coliseum in gold for its home games.

Al Davis and the Raider way lives on in Mark Davis

The Oakland Raiders and Al Davis were synonymous for many years. The owner and former coach ran almost every aspect of the football operations and was the face of the franchise like no other owner ever has been or ever will be. Even Jerry Jones is not the same type of figurehead as Davis was. So when he passed away, many began preparing themselves for what were expected to be some...
