" I'm 51 and I've been the RAIDERS since I was just a kid. Al is the reason I fell in love with the Raiders, Al Davis' Raider way of playing the game and those great uniforms. There's a big hole in my stomach that will always be there, even their latest win on Sunday, I'm just numb. I'm just a fan from MN But I just wish I could've met Al. God please be with Al's family and true friends. I will always love Al Davis and the OAKLAND RAIDERS."
