    when moss was signed there was reports that pats worked him out but it wasnt mentioned anything done without davis's permission. but iam sure PFT and all other networks will point this as another instance of pats breaking the rules :rolleyes: even though he also said the broncos also cheated :)

    ProFootballTalk.com - DAVIS DROPS LOTS OF POST-PRESS CONFERENCE BOMBSHELLS


    every team in the league is at fault for the raiders situation.

    so he says kiffin whined that he couldnt win with the team but still traded moss even though he knew he could run just because kiffin and others thought they should trade him

    Did anyone who listened to his press conference think it was a little weird the way he was saying this team will win instead of the classic just win baby comments. It sounded like he was kind of desperate snd trying to convince himself of the statement.

    What about Davis tampering with the Patriots and Dwayne Starks in 2005?

    That was actually us tampering. We needed to get rid of Starks so we sent Asante to work out for the Raiders pertending to be Starks and then the Raiders signed him.




    Note: I am aware the timing is not right

    how can it be tampering if they traded moss freely and he admits no one else even wanted him?

    Just because you know a team is trading someone doesn't give you the right to speak to him and work him out. Any info garnered could hurt the trading team in negotiating.


    Note: not that it happened here but that is how it could be to answer the ?

    I'd seen a funny blurb on a Raiders board where Raider fans are not optomistic regarding Al as his mother lived to be 103 years old.:p

    I almost let that comment go because it was so clever (high style points), but Al Davis truly did once have "it." The history of the AFL/NFL tells us that Davis had a lot to do with the early success of the league and deserves a lot of credit for the way the league is today. He was always difficult and obnoxious and, yes, offensive, but he was a visionary in his time. He upped the ante on the NFL and was probably as responsible as anyone for creating the conditions that led to the the merger, even tho the credit is usually given to Lamar Hunt and Tex Schramm. It's sad to see him deteriorating in this way without anyone to quietly nudge him off the stage.
