" new era, no grudges"! it was nice to see former RAIDER great, marcus allen light the torch at the RAIDERS stadium. it's too bad things had gone wrong with the late al davis (rest in peace) with marcus allen in the past. what may have seemed like drama backstage really wasn't. the "new era RAIDERS" have let go of some of the grudges that had a lot of media talking, including that reporter kawakami or however you spell his name, rich gannon, marcus allen and whoever got in al davis's bad side! mark davis has nothing to do with any of those or other grudges, he just wants to start from scratch which is a good thing. why carry on a grudge? good to see marcus allen light that torch. i do have to say that it looked a lil disrespectful or should i say, ahh, a lil awkward that, the torch lighting was in memory of al davis. and they didn't end in the best of terms. BUT it is what it is and bye gone's are bye gone's! it happened and it's over. nice to see to see you marcus allen, and welcome.(rest in peace) al davis.

Hope this just wasnt another one of those "wins brought on by an emotional situation" the win over the Texans last season...followed by a 5-6 closing of the 2011 season....
