I hear that when Raiders were in SO CAL guy who I knew who happen to be Israeli Jew think that he wasn’t postivie that Raider symbol was guy who lead IDF army back in 1960 into 1970s
Also don’t forget Al Davis was History major what I understand he always been interested in war history
Dayan’s major successes as a military commander were in the late 40s through the 50s, well before the Raiders were a franchise. So he very well could’ve been the model for the dude on the helmet.
Moshe Dayan was the Israeli defense Minister during the '67 war and gained world wide prominence as a result of the war.
That was after the design of the Raider logo, which goes back to the early sixties. Probably a coincidence and not a plan.
Perhaps a minor point, but, their patches are on different eyes, Dayan's is on the left eye and Raider's logo is on the right.
