Al Davis and the Raiders Cemetery

Years ago Al Davis phoned a former Raiders player and coach to float an idea. The man’s wife answered the phone and said her husband was out. She could tell Davis was on high rev and asked what he was calling about. Davis told her he had a plan. He wanted to create a Raiders cemetery, where all the old teammates and coaches could eventually be buried together.”

"That’s an interesting idea," the wife said, "but what about the wives?

There was a pause.

"That’s a problem," Davis said and hung up.
