Al Davis Still Thinks He Is Relevant

Al Davis released a statement on the passing of George Steinbrenner, falling well behind The Hater Nation who was bailed out by The Hatriot in the post below.

"He was a friend and a warrior," Davis said in a statement Wednesday. "We not only shared a birthday, but also an unyielding will to win and an unparalleled commitment to excellence."


And while Al Davis was chagrined by the signing of Javon Walker, and derided for taking JaMarcus Russell, Steinbrenner had Andy Hawkins and Brien Taylor.

"I judge sports figures based on individual achievement, team achievement and contributions to the game," Davis said. "George was right up there with me at No. 1 -- bright, aggressive and, most of all, not afraid."


Uh, No. 1? No offense Al, but the Yankees won in 2000 and 2010, following a flourish of titles in the 1990s. That is relevant. And the Raiders?

Oh wait, he talked about that.

"When the Yankees were going through the lean times in the '80s and after we beat the Redskins in the Super Bowl in Tampa, George and I would talk and I would pep him up," Davis said. "Later on, he did the same for me when Tampa beat us in the Super Bowl."


And apparently, the Raiders became such a lost cause, he felt it was better to just to succumb to the sweet release of death rather than trying to hang on.

"Uh... Do farts have lumps?" Mr. Davis inquired in an unexplained postscript to the statement.

We beat Al Davis to the draw.

Next up, a hot dog eating contest against Stephen Hawking.
