Oakland Raiders Owner Al Davis Dead At 82
Al Davis, one of the most powerful and polarizing figures in the history of professional football, died Saturday. He was 82.
Davis took the Raiders to three Super Bowl wins, battled the NFL in court six different times, and moved the team to Los Angeles and then back to Oakland.
He was also one of the sport's greatest visionaries. In 1969 he made legend-in-the-making John Madden the youngest head coach in NFL history, and in 1989 he appointed Art Shell as head coach, making him the first African American to hold that position since 1921.

Davis hated losing, on and off the field. His motto? "Just win, baby."
