Davis v. United States (9th Cir. - Jan. 25, 2016)

Al Davis isn't having a good year.  For one thing, he's dead.  For another thing, earlier this month, the NFL didn't allow him (or, more accurately, his family) to move the Oakland Raiders to Los Angeles.

Then, today, the Ninth Circuit delivered yet another blow, reversing a district court's holding in favor of the Davis family in an income tax refund action that Davis had filed in 2011.  As a result, Davis gets smacked with additional millions of dollars in tax liability.

You gotta feel a little bit bad for the guy.  Sort of.

Still, I'm no Raiders fan.  And if they do move to San Diego -- as is distinctly possible -- here's one former Chargers fan who's not going to root for 'em.

Sorry, Al.
