Al Davis dead at age 82

Wow. I don’t think anyone was expecting this today.

After seeing a couple of tweets from @ThunderTreats and @Deadspin I went to the Oakland Raiders’ website, and there, in giant letters was the following:

AL DAVIS

July 4, 1929 – October 8, 2011

The Raiders family will issue a statement later today.

Several NFL reporters are now confirming this on Twitter as well. Al Davis has died at age 82.

Say what you will about the Davis’ latter years, but he is one of the most influential people in the history of the NFL. And it looks like the Raiders finally have a team now capable of competing this year and over the next few. It would be a shame if Davis was not able to see it through, and now it unfortunately seems that this may be the case.

Rest in peace Al. Your contributions to the game of football and the NFL will certainly never be forgotten.

al davis passed away

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
