After listening and reading for a week about how much Richard Seymour didn’t want to join their organization, Al Davis wanted to set the record straight.
Davis’ appearance was a welcome surprise, given his penchant for knowledge of history, contact, tradition and unique view on all things Raider. He talked of his team “having a chance,” pointed out other trades involving first-round picks that historically paid dividends and took a few swipes at critics along the way.
Almost forgot. Seymour came off as every bit the class act he was purported to be, while Tom Cable mostly listened to Davis and the new player.
Much more to come later . . .
