The Raiders lost a true champion today when it was announced that their
CEO Amy Trask was resigning after spending over 25 years with the team.
"For over a quarter of a century, it was my honor and my privilege to work for the Raiders. I will forever appreciate the opportunity afforded me by Al Davis," said Trask in an email to the team. "I honored a commitment that I made to effectuate a smooth transition and transfer of control. I no longer wish to remain with the organization."
Amy Trask was the first female team executive in NFL history and was the highest ranked female executive in the league. She was very close to Al Davis and defended the Raiders and their fans passionately and vehemently.
It was hard enough to imagine the Raiders without Mr. Davis. It is equally hard to imagine the team without Ms. Trask. She will be sorely missed.
