Raiders owner Al Davis and former coach Lane Kiffin got together again Tuesday morning, sitting down in a suite inside the same hotel they first met more than two years ago. The first meeting was about hiring Kiffin away from USC. Tuesday's meeting was about Kiffin trying to get two month's pay he feels the Raiders owe him after he was fired in September. Davis began his deposition in Kiffin's grievance claim at 11:30 this morning at an Oakland hotel. Kiffin, who gave his deposition Monday in San Francisco, decided to join his lawyers in the room -- thus bringing the two face-to-face for the first time since weeks before Kiffin was fired four games into the 2008 season. Neither party had much to say, pointing to a gag order issued by the NFL, which is overseeing the case. Rest assured about one thing: this case has nothing to do with money. Davis wants to embarrass Kiffin, from the overhead projector firing to Friday's release of a letter to the University of Tennessee. Kiffin wants to stick it to Davis one more time and show he can cash out in ways Mike Shanahan wasn't able to.

In 2007, Davis sold a minority stake in the Raiders for $150 million[3] and said that he would not retire until he wins two more Super Bowls or dies of natural causes.


Any bets on which will happen first?

Probably die of natural causes. The day he dies, the NFL will be losing a true legend. Nobody pushed harder for the AFL and NFL to merge than Al Davis. Who knows if they ever do merge without Al.

Al Davis used to be a big deal for the NFL before he became everyone's biggest joke of the night. Somewhere in between the mid 80's and the mid 90's, he completely lost it.

That too.

Between the 80's and 90's? He got them to the AFC Championship in the early 90's and he drafted Bo Jackson in the 80's. I'd say he started losing it in the 00's. He did build up a great team with Gannon, Brown, Rice, Jon Ritchie, Lincoln Kennedy, Steve Wiesnewski, Grady Jackson, Greg Biekert, Charles Woodson, Eric Allen, Rod Woodson, and a lot of others.

And Al started the trend of hiring young coordinators by making John Madden(I believe the LB coach, but not sure, I'd have to look into this) and then picking up John Gruden to lead the Raiders of the 00's.

I think he lost it when he let Bruce Allen and John Gruden go.

Seeing that he regrets firing Shell the first time, and remembering the problem he had with Shanahan, and all of that other garbage he went through with the NFL (the lawsuits after relocating and all that mess), I'm inclined to believe it all started around that time.
