Amy Trask: A powerful woman in the world of football

Robert Scheer sits down with former Oakland Raiders CEO Amy Trask to discuss her experience as a female executive in a male-dominated field.

Amy Trask served as CEO of the Raiders for over 15 years and is now a TV football analyst. Her new book, You Negotiate Like a Girl outlines her career where she was often the only woman in the room or on the field. Trask tells Robert Scheer that working with Al Davis, the controversial owner of the Raiders, had its ups and downs, but he never gave her special treatment because she was a woman. She tells Scheer that she never spent energy worrying about being a woman while working in the NFL even when others did. She also discusses the possibility of the Oakland Raiders leaving the Bay area.
