Memo to Al Davis: The strike may be over, but Dokie Williams doesn't want to be with the Raiders. Williams' agent, Bruce Singman, has sent a letter to Davis, advising him: "Dokie desires to be traded immediately to the San Diego Chargers." Williams, a San Diego native, is smarting from the loss of his starting job this season, following the acquisitions of James Lofton and Mervyn Fernandez. Williams is now on the Raider punt and kickoff teams.

Did Bad Dude Dokie Williams spike a football about 90 m.p.h. and an inch from the helmet of the Cleveland Browns' Hanford Dixon? Damn straight, he did. Dixon asked for it, didn't he? He tackled Bad Dude after he'd crossed the goal line Sunday, or pretty close to it. Did Bad Dude get flagged for 15 yards for taunting? Big deal. Are they still giving campaign ribbons for those in El Segundo? And then something truly unusual happened in Raiderdom: Williams apologized.

Williams is expected to arrive in San Diego this morning from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and meet with Charger officials, according to Feldman and Steve Ortmayer, Charger director of football operations.

When the Raiders cut loose receiver Malcolm Barnwell this summer with the appropriate sad faces and sighs of regret about how he was a casualty of this year's 45-man roster rule, one rival front-office type was unconvinced. "Oh, oh, this means Dokie Williams is better than we feared," he said. The prevailing opinion about the Raiders is that they have the same recruitment procedures as the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang.

Dokie Williams, the unhappy but productive Raider bomb squadder-wide receiver may be headed back into the starting lineup. Tom Flores said Wednesday that Mervyn Fernandez, the big-money signee from Canada who was given Williams' job at season's start, has a sore shoulder and that Williams may start. Flores had also said recently, however, that Williams and Jessie Hester will play more "to keep our wide receivers fresh."

Where's Jim Plunkett? He wasn't spectacular, but he seldom gave them away. Where's Lester Hayes? Sure, he'd get beat like everybody else, but they knew they were going against him. These guys were Raiders . Something has to be done to light some fuses. Howie Long used to be the most feared lineman in the league; double- and triple-teaming turned him into an animal. Now any two bozos can take him right out of a game. Tom Flores has two of the most talented running backs ever, maybe the best trio of wide receivers the Raiders have ever had (that includes Dokie Williams, not Jessie (Oh, do I have to catch it, too?

Penalties, sacks, a punchless offense and poor field position continued to plague the Rams in their 16-6 loss to the Raiders Monday night at Anaheim Stadium. Rams Coach John Robinson won't openly admit there is anything lacking, but the NFC Western Division champions were victimized by six penalties, an identical number of sacks and an offense that failed to produce a touchdown for the second time this season.

The first thing that happened to the Cleveland Browns in their game against the Raiders at the Coliseum was, as it turned out, the worst thing. The Browns and the Raiders played for a seemingly interminable 3 hours 34 minutes. They ran 125 plays. There were 5 touchdown plays, 2 field goals, 29 pass completions and 8 quarterback sacks. Not to mention 32 all-important third-down plays, as the TV commentators would say.

Once again, the athletic community throws up its collective hands as it watches helplessly while a promising young life is destroyed with the suspicion of drugs lurking menacingly nearby. What to do?
