Remembering a fallen Raider, #77

Remembering a fallen Raider, #77 


Today is May 14th, and on this date in 1992, the Raiders and the NFL lost a former warrior on the gridiron. Lyle Alzado passed away after years of physical combat on the field, and years of excessive use of strength hormones. He was a favorite player of mine.

When you think of those players who were the very definition of being a Raider, Alzado has to be on the really short list.

Alzado fist pumping and crying at the end of superbowl 18 ill never forget. Outside of the run Marcus had to me, that was the the best moment in the game.

Last time I saw Lyle Alzado was about a week before he died. He is one of three "stars" I saw about a week before they died. The other 2 were Lucille Ball and Dinah Shore.

Totally agree. The guy gave his body to the game and in the end his life. Trying to remember who we played one Sunday when Lyle ripped a guys helmet off and then threw it back at him. Him and the Tooz could have been brothers.

Dr Death man. I'm glad to have gotten to ride in a car with him. He was a class act even if we were arresting him and the cuffs didn't fit.

Yeah, it became a joke whenever I'd be out to eat and a celebrity was there someone in my party would say "well, he'll be dead  next week". I only had the chance to meet him one - He had a restaurant in L.A. Called Alzado's - kind of an upscale sports bar. I saw him there and introduced myself and he couldn't have been a nicer guy.

He got popped for DUI when I was on patrol. I got called for back up as the off who yanked him was a nice guy but a 160lb Hispanic twerp all of 5-5 and Lyle had him scared sh'tless without saying a word. FSTs were done already and I struck up a conv with him, he was apologetic and cool. When we got him to blow he was below the legal limit so we took him to a nearby hotel and cut him lose. He couldn't have been a nicer suspect. I'm glad. Very glad.

Maybe it would be better if I wrote nothing but if he got popped for DUI, and he blew under the limit, how did he get popped for DUI? Another thing that bothers me. "a 160 lb Hispanic twerp"? Not a very endearing opinion.....you edit yours and I'll edit mine! Slurs in a remembrance thread? I know how to edit, do you?

Maybe 'popped" as in pulled over. Don't have to be legally drunk to get pulled over for suspicion. I wouldn't call someone 5'5" and 160# a twerp. That's either one of the most muscular 5'5" guys or one of the fattest. Normal weight for an adult male 5'5" is about #125.

LOL. Vic was a little twerp, he'd laugh at me calling him that, but Stang will never understand just b. n moan like a sad little girl. And yeah at 160 he was pumping serious weight and stronger then me. I thank God for being big enough to get a lot of folks to back down, but Lyle was a threat to know one. A really nice guy that could have given us plenty of grief with his size. He blew 07 I think and the limit was 10 back then. Not too mention for his size that was probably quite a bit. I like to think my BSing with him helped drop the breathalyzer a little. Fact is I was stalling for him and Vic never gave me any grief over it.

Yeah, Lyle was huge and even when he wasn't roiding he was about 220#. Last time I saw him right before he died he had no hair and weighed about 170.

I'm pretty sure this was 86. He just retired I think.
