Clipping on the back, "HEY COACH, YOUR RAIDERS ARE PICKING ON POOR OLD GEORGE BLANDA. Insurrection in the ranks of the Oakland Raiders, with huge bully defensive end Ben Davidson knocking old gent George Blanda on his tailbone? Tha's what happened all right but it was in Houston in 1965 when George was the enemy instead of the graybeard saviou of the John Madden monsters. Tribune Photographer Russ Reed, with an eye for a controversy even if he has to generate one, dug this strip out of old war movies of the AFL. No. 46, Raider-buffs, is tackle Dave costa, now a Denver Bronco. Ben, even in training cmap, now treats George with more respect." Photo shows Davidson about to put Blanda down on his rear during a game between the Raiders and the Oilers.
