    Disgruntled Raiders fans ask Davis to hire GM

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Disgruntled Oakland Raiders fans are making a high-profile plea for owner Al Davis to step down as the team's general manager.

    A billboard was posted on the freeway near the Oakland Coliseum this week, saying "MR. DAVIS, DO THE RIGHT THING, PLEASE HIRE A GM."

    The group the put up the billboard says it has gathered 21,000 signatures for a petition asking Davis to step down as general manager. The petition also calls on Davis to hire a new GM, hire a Super Bowl-caliber coach, and "agree to refrain from intervention in personnel or football operational matters."

    The Raiders (3-8) have won three Super Bowls under Davis' leadership but appear headed to a seventh straight losing season. Oakland's 27-80 record since the start of the 2003 season is the worst in the NFL.

    Hopefully those Raider fans used the money they would have spent on season tickets next year. Stop paying for bad football and hold some of these jack*** owners accountable. Ditto for the Cleveland Browns fans...
