STATEMENT FROM BUFFALO BILLS OWNER AND PRESIDENT RALPH WILSON, JR. ON THE PASSING OF OAKLAND RAIDERS OWNER AL DAVIS
"I am deeply saddened with the news of the passing of Al Davis. Al and I were very good friends for many years and I admired his innovative approach to the game of football."
"Al had a great impact on the American Football League that carried over to the National Football League after the merger and his competitive spirit embodied our sport."
"Al's Raiders may not have won every game, but you knew that you were in for a tough, hard-fought contest every time you played them, regardless of the score."
"I want to extend my deepest sympathies to Al's family, friends, the Raiders organization and Raiders fans everywhere."
