"-- Al Davis spoke at length with Kevin Gilbride, but the Raiders want to make it clear that Davis didn't initiate that chat, Gilbride did. It's a new thing. Apparently Gilbride is interviewing prospective owners for a team he will coach. He intends to interview several team owners before making his decision on which owner to hire. Due to the Rooney Rule, Gilbride will have to interview at least one minority owner. Which will be hard, since Georgia Frontiere is dead."
