I read Davis was a no-show for Tim Brown. What's up with that? Brown contributed to the Raiders sucess, and he gets treated like this?

What was said at the press conference is, that the Raiders wanted to hold the conference during training camp. Timmy couldnt do it then (due to obligations), but Al was gone now.....Bummer...I don't think in any way, that Al was trying to show Tim up....

Well, Davis wasn't all that thrilled with Brown going to the team that beat the Raiders in the SB which also had the head coached that basically humilated Davis.

I don't buy it, Davis could've rescheduled one day to go to the press conference of teh face of the franchise since the late 80s when he was drafted.

Davis should've shown some respect. Brown did ALOT for the Raider team.

It worked out better this way. It was Tim's moment in the spotlight. He didn't have to share it with Al or anyone. For one last time, he was one of our greatest Raiders.
