1B Davis the teams maverick owner CaUahan ended near ly two decades without a trip to the big game He did it by transforming some castoff star power into a formidable cast with the likes of Jerry Rice Tim Brown Rod Woodson Charles Wood son Bill Romanowski and league MVP Rich Gannon And he doesnt care about the spotlight which is good because Davis who stayed behind the scenes last week isnt likely to do so again Of course many in the NFL still consider Davis a villain because of his endless series of lawsuits and threats against the league That his team failed to play for a title from 1985 until both Los Angeles afod Oak land as their ports of call probably was a source of extreme pleasure everywhere outside Raider Nation Mr Davis is the said safety Anthony Dorsett It rolls off him and onto us He could tell you about every player He could tell you the guy on the practice squads wife and kids He loves this football And he loves the image he has created for it The only problem is the
