Al Davis, the Hall of Fame owner of the Oakland Raiders known for his rebellious spirit, has died.
The team announced his death at age 82 on Saturday.
It was not immediately clear when and where he died.
It was Davis' willingness to buck the establishment that helped turn the NFL into THE establishment in sports — the most successful sports league in American history.
