The Raiders have been one of my favorite teams since I was little and they were winning Super Bowls. I had no idea he was ill but it seemed like he hadn't been in the headlines much lately. He lived a long life and had a great impact on his sport and his team. He had his battles with the league but that doesn't mean he didn't have a positive influence. I am glad the team is in good hands with his surviving family members and staff. It's a shame the team hasn't had much success on the field in recent years but maybe that's starting to change now with the new head coach and quarterback. May Al rest in peace and the Raiders keep up the progress they've been making on the field.
