Al Davis

Suggests Beef w/ Al Michaels

Is Over Bogus Adultery Report

9/7/2011 1:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Who even cares? Old f*cks. They'll both be dead soon either way and long forgotten.

To Al Michaels credit Al Davis did die in 1997 or atleast he looks like he did.

Michaels needs to sit down somewhere if he plans on keeping his job.

Hmmm... I thought Al didn't like Davis b/c Davis has run the Raiders into the ground.
I know I wanna go to a stadium where the fans call it the Black Hole. Aren't Black Holes dangerous?

1997? That was almost 15 years ago. These two bed pans should be enjoying what time they have left instead of arguing.

NO! I'm pretty sure that he said that because the Raiders are a joke and his (Davis), iron fisted rule over them has ran the team into the ground. The Raiders won't ever get their act together until Davis is dead and gone. Unfortunately he just looks dead so far.

Nothing like some old guys behaving like they're girls in high school. Next up: Hairpulling, "yeast infection rumors" and late-night prank calls.

WHO are these people? From what this article says I guess one of them owns a football team, who is the other Al, who is the guy named Chris and I thought some guy named John Madden was either very very old or dead. ? Sounds like this should have been on some sports page.

I didn't know it was such a big secret AL Davis has mush where his brain use to be. The senile old fart is surrounded by "yes" men that kiss his ass to keep their jobs and paychecks.

Al Davis ordered the hit on Darryl Stingley, leaving him paralyzed. Jack Tatum received a bonus for it. Karma is a bitch.

Al s comment is one that has been around for decades . When davis has no control over that team it will have a chance.
