I was a Raider fan as a kid towards the end of his career. He was never a dirty player. If he was, Rozelle would have run him out of the league. He was just simply the most vicious (clean) hitter the game has ever seen. Some of the [Mark May] he threw down was so off the charts that people just naturally had to assume that something was dirty about it.
Now, Skip Atkinson......Dr. Death was a whole other story.
