First they take the man who revolutionized Technology.
Now they take the man who revolutionized Football.
Geez, they may have had some knowledge drain going on up there. I can just imagine the morning meetings now:
Mr Davis: iPad, Shmipad. I got my overhead projector and that works just fine, Jobes.
You mentioned the Cubs. Brooklyn Dodgers were like the Cubs. People still haven't forgotten.
Have you ever been to Oakland? ;)
Earlier I actually said the decision now regarding the team will be over Al's dead body. Btw, the team is still owned by the Davis family who must have had a plan in the works knowing Al's frailty. However that comment did not register along with a couple of others. So we're on the same page regarding how corporations operate.I'm simply adding family owned corporations can operate a bit different than a publicly held ones. I think the phrase "my way or the highway" was coined by Al Davis--a man of great influence in football while alive. I suspect in his death Al Davis's influence will carryover, maybe overshadow decisions for at least 3-5 years--my guess (naturallly depending on how the team does going forward). Everything is a little emotional right now, particularly over the last win.
