Former Raiders CEO Amy Trask has landed on her feet after leaving the Oakland franchise rather infamously, grabbing a gig with CBS Sports and even becoming an analyst/pundit on the CBS Sports Network’s That Other Pregame Show where she currently is helping preview the NFL Draft. A gig which she is doing quite well at, even making a stand on one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL Draft who she feels is being treated unfairly as his stock plummets.
Trask stepped to the plate for Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater recently, going on a rant about the unfairness in anonymous NFL front office scouts/executives claiming that Bridgewater “can’t be the face of a franchise” without putting themselves on the record to do so in one of the best rants out there on Draft Day.
Citing Bridgewater’s success at Louisville along with inside Jason La Canfora, Trask pointed out the seemingly obvious bias that exists potentially due to the color of Bridgewater’s skin. Saying it is fine to question his size and other factors, but called out those who are trying to stand behind what appears to be a borderline racist remark about Bridgewater’s ability to lead a franchise that is better left in the dark history of the NFL.
