Davis family will retain control of Raiders

Mark Davis AP

[Editor’s note:  This item originally was published shortly after midnight.  We’ve update the time stamp due to the relevance of the topic, and in light of the fact that the story will be promoted during Football Night in America.]

The fact that Al Davis operated the Raiders with scant information disclosed publicly regarding the ownership structure of the organization invites speculation as to the future of the team.  Some, for example, already are predicting a flurry of lawsuits aimed at sorting out the various rights of the minority owners who allowed Davis to control the team.

The reality is far less intriguing.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, thorough and detailed estate and succession planning ensures that the team will be owned by the wife and son of Al Davis:  Carol Davis and Mark Davis.  They can’t be forced to sell by their partners, by the league, or by operation of law.

As it relates to the other partners, the team operates as a limited partnership, with the Davis family being the sole and complete owner of the sole general partner.  Under the law of limited partnerships, that gives the Davis family full control over the business.  And there’s no path to control held by any of the other partners based on the passing of Al Davis.

The fact that the general partner owns only a small percentage of the franchise has caused many to conclude that the Davis family owns only a small percentage of the franchise.  That’s not the case; the Davis family owns significantly more of the equity via limited partnership interests in the team.

The question becomes whether Carol and Mark Davis want to continue to own the team.  Mrs. Davis was married to Al for well over 50 years, and Mark (pictured) is in his 50s.  They are a close family, and it’s believed that they have no desire to sell the team.  Mark grew up in and around the organization, and he has a passion for the franchise.

The fact that Al Davis has only one child removes one of the other potential catalysts for a sale.  If multiple children inherit a team and one or more want to cash out, the others may have no alternative to selling the team in order to raise the money to buy out a sibling or two.

In this case, the bigger question is whether Mark Davis will run the team on a day-to-day basis or entrust that function to others.  He has had some past involvement in the franchise, and it’s unknown whether he intends to assume a larger role.

None of this prevents Phil Anschutz or Ed Roski or anyone from trying to buy the team.  But the passing of Al Davis will, in and of itself, give rise to no circumstance that creates an incentive or necessity to sell.

Thus, if Carol and Mark Davis aren’t interested in selling, they can tell Anschutz, Roski, or whoever makes an overture that the Oakland Raiders will remain in the Davis family indefinitely.

    And you all thought he was crazy.

  2. tomsd1 says: Oct 9, 2011 12:43 AM

    Having followed this franchise CLOSELY – for over 40 years and having friends who played for Al – I seriously doubt if his son/wife will sell anytime in the near term.

  3. trbowman says: Oct 9, 2011 12:49 AM

    Hopefully Mark doesn’t try to play GM……

  4. bloggingpoodlewalker says: Oct 9, 2011 12:50 AM

    Mark is a good dude, loves the Raiders and the Raider Nation,…he has Otto and Madden and Amy Trask helping him,..all is good in the Nation….God Bless you Al.

  5. swervinmervin says: Oct 9, 2011 12:56 AM

    This is the way it should be. The Davis family should own the team as long as they’d like to. It would be great to see Mark Davis reach into the past and hire either John Madden or (even better) Ron Wolfe to help the team with player personnel moves.

  6. rasalas says: Oct 9, 2011 1:02 AM

    You’ve overlooked the issue of inheritance taxes. The bill could be hefty for Davis’ wife and their son. In fact, Forbes estimates that they will owe hundreds of millions of dollars in inheritance taxes, based on the worth of the team.

    Ask the Robbie family how taxes worked out for them when Joe Robbie kindly left them as owners of the Dolphins when he died. They quickly sold the team (to Wayne Huizenga), because they couldn’t afford to keep the team and pay the tax bill. Forbes bets that the Raiders, too, will be sold within a year for that same reason.

    Oh boy, get ready to hear about this for the rest of the decade.

    Please rest in peace big Al…

  8. thecoltsman says: Oct 9, 2011 1:13 AM

    hopefully his son is as cool as jim Irsay.

  9. raiderman81 says: Oct 9, 2011 1:20 AM

    And that is exactly where the raiders belong… with the Davis family….

  10. oliv9768 says: Oct 9, 2011 1:23 AM

    Yessss…. Keep it all in house fam’. Please take sufficient time to excercise due diligence during the hiring process of our next visionary general manager. May he/she/they possess great style and the necessary intestinal fortitude to successfully guide this extroadinarily proud and storied franchise. Here’s hoping you stay the course.

    On another note; Arian Foster gets me 30 points for my fantasy team, and we still win, because Kevin Boss (also om my fantasy team) caps of the game with his 2nd TD in the closing seconds of the game.

    Damn life is grand…… We just can’t lose; can we Al?

    R.I.P.

  11. seanx40 says: Oct 9, 2011 1:24 AM

    What about the inheritance taxes? Have to be a couple of hundred million on an NFL team. Does the Davis family have that much cash laying around?

  12. shanehockey28 says: Oct 9, 2011 1:26 AM

    Its always been my understanding that Al Davis’s son or family wanted nothing to do with the team so I would assume that they will try to sell their stake in the team.

  13. marshawnlynchlookslikepredator says: Oct 9, 2011 1:35 AM

    Mark has said before that he will hire a GM, and even if he chooses not to, I wish I would of been able to learn one one-hundredth of the football knowledge he could of learned from his father

  14. keeponhating says: Oct 9, 2011 1:38 AM

    Its good to know that the Raiders will stay in the Davis family. I was worried that they’ll sell it to somebody who only cares about profits and not about the team or its great history. RIP Al Davis

  15. jshawaii22 says: Oct 9, 2011 1:42 AM

    RIP to a one-of-kind!

    Hopefully, this family will do better than the team across the Bay did when their ‘family’ took over…..

    Let the losing continue.

  17. realfann says: Oct 9, 2011 1:45 AM

    I don’t know who these people are that are speculating about lawsuits and unclear succession.

    But all they had to do is listen to Mr Davis who on several occasions said the Raiders would stay under control of his family after his death. His son would run the franchise.

    No mystery whatsoever.

  18. osnap305 says: Oct 9, 2011 1:48 AM

    I hope Mark tells Roski and Anschutz to get the f off his porch. 50/50 style.

  19. profootballwalk says: Oct 9, 2011 2:11 AM

    The widow must have one foot in the graveyard and one on a banana peel. The fact that Al never turned over the team to his son means that either the son didn’t want it or Al didnt’ trust him. Either way, I doubt he’ll make a very strong owner.

  20. whoknowsnothing says: Oct 9, 2011 2:17 AM

    The Davis name should always be a part of the Raiders. Hopefully they keep it in the family, Al Davis brought and gave the Raiders an attitude that will never be matched by any other organization.

    The Raiders are Al Davis = Raidernation

  21. Jeremy Meyer says: Oct 9, 2011 2:22 AM

    I personally thought that this would give either Phil Anschutz or Ed Roski the leverage that they needed and wanted in purchasing a controlling interest in an NFL franchise. But, like the story said and that is the family of Mr. Davis has the drive and passion to run and continue to own the franchise or maybe they just want to cash out a percentage to Phil Anschutz or Ed Roski.

    If the family owns a big enough stake, they can negotiate where the Raiders move down to LA and play at Farmers Field while the family possibly continue to own a small percentage and they money every year from merchandise etc.

  22. staffordsyear says: Oct 9, 2011 3:47 AM

    My condolences raiders fans.

  23. vomitingliberals says: Oct 9, 2011 3:55 AM

    If King Barry thinks the Raiders are too big to fail, he might just swoop in and hire a bunch of Harvard hacks with no experience in real world economics, and force the Raiders to start producing highly over-priced solar powered cars for pint-sized people who would rather be driving pickups anyway. Ya neh-vah knoh!?

  24. joetoronto says: Oct 9, 2011 4:54 AM

    From what’s been said in the past in the bay area about Mark, he’ll hire a football man to run the show.

    It’s no surprise at all to me that Mr Davis left everything in order and protected for his family, I would expect no less from him.

    RIP, Mr Davis and thank you so much for decades of Raider Football.

  25. raider23mike says: Oct 9, 2011 5:04 AM

    Will we still be running the same schemes? Man-to-Man, No Blitz, Speed.. What about Heyward-Bey being the Raiders #1 WR(due to draft status) and Al Davis’ player. Will he now be bench, paycut? Will Mark Davis take the bait and move to a State of the Art Stadium in L.A. ? If we fail to win, who are we to blame? A young inexperienced owner. Will we get a GM? John Madden?

  26. dangerousdave44 says: Oct 9, 2011 6:13 AM

    I do recall in a Tim Kawakami post presser chat Al was saying that Mark wouldn’t be running the football side of things due to his dislike for the more ugly side of things of working in football operations (having to cut players etc).

    I’m really interested now as to who becomes the general manager – whether it’s someone already within the organization who has worked with Al or whether they bring in someone new. And if it’s someone new, how will they fit in now that Hue Jackson seems to have things on the rise.

  27. gimmeabruschi says: Oct 9, 2011 6:56 AM

    Every fan of a former AFL team should be grateful to Al. He played a big part in making those teams big-time.

    The greatness of the Raiders remains in it’s future.

  30. Chairman Al says: Oct 9, 2011 8:06 AM

    I’m intrigued by mark Davis. I really don’t know anything much about him, or if he’ll be a hands-on owner. Coach Davis obviously had his confidants like John Herrera and Amy Trask, and I would expect them to be the real leaders of the organization. Still, I’m anxious to see what happens next.

  31. rdrs68 says: Oct 9, 2011 8:15 AM

    This is a franchise that has to stay in the right hands or end up with someone who has a deep understanding of the unique culture that is part of the Raider tradition. We are a nation that will not follow a new owner who tries to turn this one of a kind totally unique team into another sports corporation staffed by interchangeable parts. The thought of someone like Phil Anschutz owning this property is sickening.

  32. seanb20124 says: Oct 9, 2011 8:42 AM

    Why should the gov’t get any tax money due to his death? Occupy Wall Street now

  33. hellswitch says: Oct 9, 2011 8:56 AM

    Coming from a Dallas fan, I’m not a Raider hater. It will be interesting to see what path the Raiders take. I don’t have a clue what his son is all about.

  34. hellswitch says: Oct 9, 2011 9:04 AM

    rdrs68, I couldn’t agree more. The Raider team is unique in the NFL and special in that if you hate them, you really hate them. That’s not a bad thing. That’s what makes them special. If you don’t hate a team, you’re not a true fan. Again, this is coming from a Dallas fan and I hate the Eagles. No offense to Philly fans… you all know the routine. ;)

    If the Davis family were all partners as your article states, they would not owe any estate taxes. Al Davis was a smart man.

  36. raiderredleg says: Oct 9, 2011 10:04 AM

    Best way to honor Al Davis’ legacy AND welcome the new era in Raider Nation…Go to http://www.raiders.com and order something from the Raider Image Store to show your support!

  37. jessethegreat says: Oct 9, 2011 10:11 AM

    As a Packers fan, I respect the hell out of Al Davis. Out of his legacy. I love how the “ownership” of the Packers is set up, but if it were to be different, I’d want an owner, coach, and Captain of the ship to be a man like Al Davis. He always tried his damdest to make his Raiders competitive. No matter how the season was going for the Raiders, they were always talked about. I will always cheer for the Packers, but as long as they’re not playing eachother, I will cheer for the Raiders as well. I can say that about no other team. Rest In Peace Mr. Davis…. and JUST WIN BABY

  38. bcjim says: Oct 9, 2011 10:26 AM

    The worst part is from now on every article about the imaginary football stadiums in L.A. will have the Raiders at the top of the list of teams who will move there, in spite of any and all evidence to the contrary.

    Al Davis, Requiescat in pace. You will be missed, the NFL will never be the same again. It’s all flag football for golf-clappers now.

    -Raider fan for a day.

  42. raiderrob21 says: Oct 9, 2011 11:05 AM

    One thing you outsiders need to know about Mr. Davis, He never lost in court. I am sure he has crossed his T’s and dotted his I’s on anything and everything in the event of his death. I assure you he already had everything legal worked out long ago, and I assure you those in the organization know the gameplan and exactly what to do.

    ————————————————-
    The Forbes article is speculation based on what could happen if Al didn’t take steps to protect his family from being hit with those inheritance taxes. He was a smart man who loved the Raiders and wanted them to remain in the family. And he knew what happened to other family-owned franchises when precautions weren’t taken. I wouldn’t bank on the Davis’s being forced to sell until it happens. And I hope it doesn’t. The team should stay with the Davis family where it belongs.

    ==================
    Confidants like John Herrera? The guy that came out of the CFL?! and nearly punched Tim Kawakami? Yeah, i’m anxious to see what happens next. Fortunately, Big Tuna is around, and a few other football minds (Wolf) are around to help with personnel moves.

    @Favreforever

    REAL classy….About as classy as Brett Farve in fact.

    As far as the Davis family…The organization is FINE in the short term.

    Great coach (can you IMAGINE Tom Cable still being the HC?), great CEO in Amy Trask, and a VERY talented roster.

    BTW…The Raiders are winning close games despite injuries, penalties, poor offensive output and the loss of the best Raider in two decades to free agency (Nnamdi).

    Hue just needs to coach them up some and imagine what the Raiders can do against a weak AFC West and once your in the playoffs ANYTHING can happen (just ask Green Bay last year).

    Will the Raiders stay in Oakland long term? Will the Davis family own the Raiders for another half century? All questions that will have to be sorted out over the next couple of years.

    For now it is just good to see the Raiders winning and being relevant again!

    Just Win Baby!

    From what I heard from Raiders413 which is always correct and broke all the stories including seymour trade then of course ESPN said they did but anyways I was told that Mark Davis is already in talks with John Madden and John Gruden about a GM job..
    Expect the story to be public in 2 weeks with a announcement

  53. huejackson says: Oct 9, 2011 8:59 PM

    Yeah that DHB looked like a real bust today..
    Oh and that Darren Mcfadden is horrible too right?
    Oh ok I know you will say what about Jamrcus Russell but if Raiders did not take him everyone would of bashed them at the time and funny nobody mentions the Pats bust EVERY YEAR..
    Chad Jackson yeah he turned out to be a Pro Bowl WR right…

  54. snnyjcbs says: Oct 9, 2011 9:18 PM

    With being a long time Raider Fan I have come to take almost all of what the media reports on the Raiders and throw it out the window.

    Year after year reports of, the Raiders cannot sign any of their Free Agents let alone bring in new players falls false year in and year out. It is “Fire Sale” time per the media year after year yet no truth.

    Al Davis has owned far more of the Raiders then people were aware for a long time. The last Family of one of the Partners found out the hard way that they had no right to even look at the Books and were bought out by Al Davis.

    You do not work your way up from a Scout to an owner of a close to Billion Dollar Org by being stupid. Still have any questions talk to the NFL that lost Millions by Suing Al Davis and the Raiders. That is right another false hood spread by the media that Al Davis sued the NFL over the move to LA, he filed a counter suit.

    Wow how many in Life that are nothing and have accomplished nothing can Hate on the SUCCESSFUL, worry about your Rambler and 1 Bath Home you are Renting, Al Davis did not know the talkers were even alive.

    OR have you forgotten the Gruden era of the late 90s and early 2000s AND Al Davis drafting Nnamdi (arguably the best CB in the NFL along with Revis) when NO ONE else thought he would amount to anything.

    Mr. Davis was part of the NFL for nearly 50s and even some of his worst critics (Mortenson, Peter King) gave him props this weekend why don’t you?

    KEEP IT REAL YOURSELF GENIUS

  56. sinister23 says: Oct 10, 2011 12:45 AM

    When you draft top 10 as many times as oakland has its almost impossible to miss every time. But Davis tried his best. You all know its true! Im sure he was a force at one time, but the raiders of today are comical. And Asoumgua was over rated in a garbage defense, look at him now in philly surrounded by talent! If Davis never died, we would all still be amused by his sub par performance. Again, my condolences go out to the family. But atleast now you may get an owner worth a crap.

  63. coachglove says: Oct 10, 2011 9:39 AM

    This is such a non-story. All Al would have to have done is put the family’s ownership interests into a trust and name himself trustee with rights passing to his son/wife/dog and there is no inheritance taxes because there is no change of ownership. If they sell and take $ from the trust, taxes would be due.

  64. sinister23 says: Oct 10, 2011 10:04 AM

    @joetoronto/raiderinpa- Life is good, atleast im breathing. Also, i picture you as a fat old man married to a fatter old woman. I on the other hand, am in my 20s, a U.S. Marine, and married to a bombshell. Next, I believe “daddy didnt love me” would pertain to completely different issues beyond hating the raiders. Just because the guy died doesnt make him a pioneer of his time. Check the tapes, We all laughed at his DHB pick nearly 2 rounds early, and 2 average games doesnt make him a good pick. McFadden would be an NFL icon with a decent team, but raiders are holding him back. Pick up a CALVIN JOHNSON or A. PETERSON and you can talk. He blows opportunities. Period.

  69. raidersfreak says: Feb 4, 2012 9:20 PM

    I think Amy Trask deserves a lot of credit as well. I think she is Al’s rock, a Davis family member, a self made women who runs the Raiders with great continuity on the business side of the Organization.

    Al probably treated her as his own daughter while keeping business separated from family affairs. She goes unnoticed but holds the Raiders together. I wouldn’t be surprised if Al had left her a part of the team.

    When you have a strong bushiness employee such as Amy who knew Al and the team oh so well. Amy could get all the financial details nailed down for a man who was in his 80s and all estate affairs handled seamlessly.
