    Amy Trask resigns from Raiders

    Associated Press
    ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Longtime Oakland Raiders chief executive officer Amy Trask resigned her position on Saturday, ending the tenure of one of the highest-ranking women in American professional sports.
    Trask spent 25 seasons with the Raiders starting during their time in Los Angeles and continuing after the move to Oakland in 1995. She became CEO in 1997 and was one of late owner Al Davis' most trusted advisers before his death in October 2011.

    AP Photo/Paul SpinelliAmy Trask, one of the highest-ranking women in American professional sports, had been with the Raiders for 25 seasons.
    "Earlier today, I informed Mark Davis of my decision to leave the Raiders," she said in an email statement. "Having honored a commitment that I made to effectuate a smooth transition and transfer of control, I no longer wish to remain with the organization. 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."
    Mark Davis took over the Raiders following his father's death. He hired general manager Reggie McKenzie to run the football operations in January 2012 and has been looking for a potential team president this offseason.
    The Raiders released a statement late Saturday thanking Trask for her time with the team.
    "Mark Davis, Carol Davis and the rest of the Raiders family would like to thank Amy Trask for her valued contributions to the Raiders for the past 25 years. The Raiders wish her the very best in her future endeavors."
    The organization has been almost completely overhauled since Al Davis' death with most of the coaches, scouts and many front office executives no longer part of the Raiders.
    Trask's main focus of late was on improving Oakland's stadium situation. The Raiders are in the final year of their lease at the outdated Coliseum in Oakland and would like to reach a deal with the city to build a new stadium near the current site.

    She almost looks like the Prince of Darkness himself. Maybe she can land a job at ESPN...

    I actually did a double-take on that photo because it did look like someone had taken Al, pulled back most of the baggy/loose skin to make the wrinkles disappear, and slapped a cheap wig on him.

    Or maybe it was just inbreeding all along...
