Al Has Forgotten More About Football Than You Know

This hasn't happened to me (at least not recently) but have you noticed that is the stock response supporters of Al Davis will use in his defense? It doesn't seem to matter what the topic being discussed is or in what context. Al must be right, whatever is at issue, because he has forgotten more about football than the rest of us know.

Well, be that as it may (I won't even bother arguing the point even though it can be dismantled), who cares? What does that have to do with addressing the issue being discussed? It's a way of detracting from the issue, sticking up for the guy even though the criticism may be valid. If the criticism is not valid, state why instead of spouting the meaningless, stock response.

I find it difficult to find any worthwhile discussion of the Raiders with Raider fans. Raider Nation, try and up the value of your content rather than stand behind the one guy who could care less about you and is more concerned with your financial allegiance to his franchise. You are merely a feeder system to enhance the wealth of others. Open your eyes.

On the other hand, don't let me disrupt your plans to blow your budgets since that is what you intend to do anyway, all for the greater glory of Al.
