Al Davis

Suggests Beef w/ Al Michaels

Is Over Bogus Adultery Report

Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis believes Al Michaels secretly blames him for planting a FALSE news report about Michaels cheating on his wife a while back ... and suggests that's the REAL reason Michaels blasted him on TMZ over the weekend.

After the NFL announcer RIPPED Davis ... calling him a terrible owner who's probably gonna die soon ... Oakland Raiders P.R. Director Mike Taylor gave the following statement to TMZ:

"We have no idea what Michaels was blathering about.  I do remember Michaels being associated with an ultimately bogus report about adultery and other misdeeds and he thought Al Davis had something to do with it.  Al Davis had nothing to do with it."

"During the recent Raiders/Saints broadcast, Chris Collinsworth put Michaels in his place when Michaels was speaking about the Raiders.  John Madden did the same thing when he was in the booth with Michaels."

"We do not know what started this."

FYI -- The "report" Taylor is referring to was a radio station prank back in 1997 ... and as Taylor pointed out, there was NO TRUTH to the notion that Michaels ever committed adultery.

AL Michaels is right. The Raiders will never win as long as Al Davis is running the franchise.

I believe Peyton will come back this year. I still think he wants another ring. I would. I just think he should come back when he feels ready. He shouldn't have to rush into anything IMO.

Take in a baseball game. Drink some champagne with Lindsay.
