A Deserving Tribute
In the words of Al Davis:
"His brilliance as a player, his team achievement, his personal achievement, and all the things he did for us are not the important thing right now in my mind. The important thing is he wore our colors with pride, he wore them with poise, and he wore them with class."
"I think he's a sore loser, But so am I"
"His dedication, the will to win, the commitment still reaps the rewards of victory. They still mean whether you win or lose - the intensity of the players on the field, the organization, and everyone that are driving the car in one direction. We wish him all the luck in the world."
"All I can say to him is thank you, we're grateful, and [may] our paths continue to cross, and we'll always be there, the Raiders and Rich Gannon."
