Raiders' renegade owner Davis dies at 82

Email

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Al Davis was a rebel with a cause -- "Just win, baby" he exhorted his beloved Oakland Raiders.

And as the NFL well knows, he was also a rebel with a subpoena.

Davis, who bucked league authority time and again and won three Super Bowl titles during his half-century in professional football, died Saturday. He was 82.

The Hall of Famer died at his home in Oakland, the team said. The cause of death was not immediately disclosed.
