Iconic Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, he of the slicked hair, dark sunglasses and white jumpsuit, passed away on Saturday. He was memorialized by countless national football writers over the weekend, reminding fans like me who are under 30 years old that Davis was more than just the guy who had an annual ritual of selecting the fastest player on the board -- or the huskiest kicker in the case of Sebastian Janikowski -- in the first round of the...

A near doubling in Under Armour's stock price over the past year helped drive CEO Kevin Plank past Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti in the Forbes 400 list of the richest Americans. Plank is worth $3 billion, according to the financial magazine, up from $1.7 billion a year ago. He has climbed from No. 345 to No. 327 to No. 190 over the past three years. Bisciotti, whose wealth comes both from the Ravens and the staffing firm Allegis Group, is worth $2.6 billion, ranking No. 235 on the list.

What a joke! Steve Bisciotti and Roger Goodell are making a big deal of not seeing the second video of Ray Rice punching his fiancée in the elevator of the Revel Casino ( "On the defense," Sept. 23). Did they not read the police report saying that Mr. Rice struck his fiancée in the face and rendered her unconscious? Does anyone need to see a video after reading that? Are they stupid? Unconscious? Or just interested in seeing the Ravens win games and make money for the team and the league?

ORLANDO -- Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti called Ray Rice's arrest last month "embarrassing and disappointing," but he vowed to stick by the three-time Pro Bowl running back. "Ray will be here," Bisciotti said in an interview with The Baltimore Sun at the owners meetings. " This is a singular moment six years after we drafted him. It's embarrassing for him and his fiancée. It is especially hard to see somebody that is proud of his reputation have to take this kind of public relations hit. " Rice, who has been one of the most active Ravens in the community since they drafted him in 2008, was arrested and charged with simple assault on Feb. 15 following an altercation with his fiancée.

Prospective Ravens owner Stephen J. Bisciotti will likely win the unanimous recommendation of the NFL's influential finance committee in his bid to buy the team, predicted Giants co-owner P. Robert Tisch yesterday. "He's a first-class guy. We were very impressed with him," Tisch said, the day after Bisciotti appeared before the finance committee in Florida. Tisch is a member of the finance committee. The committee asked Bisciotti and current Ravens owner Art Modell to wrap up final negotiations on the sales agreement by Friday.

Ravens coach Brian Billick has had a poor season with his offense, but he called a great play this week. He basically forced owner Steve Bisciotti into honoring another season on the final three years of his contract. Billick should have been as creative on the field, but the news of his return raises some questions and doubts about Bisciotti. Billick knew his Monday statement - "I'm coming back" - would create a stir, and he was aware of the rumors about the Ravens talking with former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher.

Two weeks after the Ravens suffered the cruelest of playoff losses, owner Steve Bisciotti gave the team's 13-4 season his personal stamp of success. As bad as the loss to the Indianapolis Colts was, Bisciotti found a silver lining through his disappointment. In so many words, he said yesterday that he'll handle defeats like the one in the divisional playoff round as long as they're in close proximity to Super Bowl victories. "I'm hoping I feel this disappointment every year that I don't win a Super Bowl," Bisciotti said during a season-ending news conference.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome won't have owner Steve Bisciotti as his card-playing partner anytime soon. For the second time in a year, Bisciotti has played his hand way too early in the coming negotiations with middle linebacker Ray Lewis, who just completed the final season of a six-year contract. In March, Bisciotti said he expected the Ravens to outbid other teams for the services of Lewis. And Wednesday, Bisciotti said he didn't foresee the Ravens using the franchise tag on Lewis.

ATLANTA -Steve Bisciotti is talking Maryland basketball. He's offering a statistical argument for why the Terrapins under coach Gary Williams should be considered the third-best Atlantic Coast Conference team behind North Carolina and Duke the past 10 years. The way he talks - passionately, his voice rising - it's clear that Bisciotti, besides owning the Ravens, is about as devout a Terps fan as there is. But it's more than that. Bisciotti, who planned to watch the Terps in the ACC tournament here tonight, has also become a confidant and important ally of Williams.

Offering an emphatic response to what he perceived as an attack on his organization's integrity, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti on Monday rebutted a recent report saying that the organization engaged in a “pattern of misinformation and misdirection” following Ray Rice's arrest in February. In an unusual, nearly 50-minute news conference that brought the national media to the team's Owings Mills training facility, Bisciotti again acknowledged the organization's faults in how it handled the fallout of the former running back's assault on his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, in an Atlantic City, N.J., casino elevator.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti spent nearly 50 minutes in front of the media Monday afternoon, trying again to dispel the notion that the team has been less than forthcoming in its handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal. This time, it was to specifically dispute a recent report that portrayed the Ravens as a team that knew more than it let on about the severity of Rice's attack on then-fiancee Janay Palmer and lobbied to limit the disciplinary action handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti better not be lying. He left himself open to be put in the same class as former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling on Monday after a nearly 50-minute press conference in which he disputed a recently published report by ESPN challenging the integrity of his franchise. Bisciotti was what you want an owner to be in this situation. He was feisty, defiant, combative and apologetic at times, and repeated his denial of not having seen the second video of running back Ray Rice his wife in an elevator until seven months after the incident.

In response to Scott Green's letter, "The Ravens got it wrong" (Sept. 13), it seems unfair to criticize Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti for not supporting Ray and Janay Rice after the violent video came to light. Mr. Bisciotti is considered an influential business leader in the community. His decision was forced by his viewing of and by public release of the violent video. One can argue that the Ravens could and should have done more to obtain the tape sooner, but that doesn't change the fact that Ray Rice and only Ray Rice threw that violent punch.

I appreciate Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti's thorough and sincere explanation on behalf the Ravens with respect the treatment of Ray Rice ( "Steve Bisciotti writes that Ravens should have done more to investigate Ray Rice video," Sept. 10). The role of the league in both the investigation leading to the suspension ruling in July as well the reaction after the interior elevator video was released would typically fall outside an individual owner's explicit purview and as such the understated references with regard the NFL will have to speak for themselves.

Not long after the Ravens sent out an email from owner Steve Bisciotti  to their season ticket and suite holders and sponsors Tuesday night apologizing for their handling of the Ray Rice situation, another message went out to team employees. It advised them of a meeting with Bisciotti on Wednesday morning where the owner explained the organization's handling of Rice's legal issues and subsequent release. Bisciotti spoke for about two minutes to the Ravens' coaching staff and all other employees at the  Under Armour  Performance Center.

PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Anne Arundel County businessman Stephen Bisciotti bought himself an early birthday present yesterday. Bisciotti, who turns 40 on April 10, was given unanimous approval to buy 49 percent of the Ravens -- with an option to buy the other 51 percent in four years -- by the 31 NFL owners at their annual March meetings yesterday. "We've got a winner and the league has a winner," Ravens owner Art Modell said as he introduced Bisciotti at a news conference after the owners approved the transaction as their first order of business.

Significant changes are in order for the struggling Ravens, from coach Brian Billick to his coaching staff to perhaps quarterback Kyle Boller. During an hourlong, season-ending news conference yesterday, Steve Bisciotti said he is frustrated by missing the playoffs in two seasons as owner and demanded a different course of action to restore the Ravens as an elite franchise. "We don't like losing," said Bisciotti, who has spoken publicly only a few times since taking over as principal owner in April 2004.

Where was owner  Steve Bisciotti  or general manager  Ozzie Newsome ? Both were criticized by the local and national media for their failure to make themselves available to answer questions. Bisciotti, however, defended the decision in an interview with The Sun earlier today.
