  • Gene Upshaw, RIP

    Boy did Gene have bad timing, died during the OG. Not only that, during the Athletics competition.

    He was one of the longtime Raider stallwarts, HOF guard, 3 rings. He was the players union honcho for many years. Took a page from Marvin Miller's book regarding making the owners cry. Got very good situations for his constituancy, the current union members, but took a lot of flack for not doing more for the old timers. I think the general public basically had a negative impression of him the last few years. But, his responsibility, as union head, was to his current membership. IMO, he was a good guy.
