An example of great journalism by Yahoo’s Mike Silver

We spend plenty of time “outing” phonies and charlatans in our business. But, alas, there are many, many dedicated, responsible and interesting journalists in the cyber-universe and when I find them, simply put, I celebrate them.

If you’ve been following this Raiders story closely — and I am, mainly because of the bizarre nature of the management, ownership, leadership and discipline of the Oakland Raiders, whose success and franchise closely mirrors the Baltimore Orioles in many ways — this story by Yahoo’s Mike Silver is a must-read.

So just when you think the Orioles are really bad, just consider that you could be a Raider fan as well.

Angelos and Davis really do have a lot in common: old world owner, a little too involved, no one who is competent or wise wants to work for them, etc.

But, like Bob Haynie, I digress…

This is one of the best “exposes” in recent memory on the dysfunction of the Raider Nation under Al Davis.

Keep in mind: Davis is in the Hall of Fame and Art Modell is not.
