Raiders going extra mile for Oakland public schools

Raiders chief executive Amy Trask visited the media room a short time ago to hand deliver the news that 10 percent of gross proceeds from new season-ticket sales from May 1-June 30 will be given to the Oakland Unified School District.
“We are thrilled to announce our newest youth and community-based initiative and we are delighted to assist the Oakland Unified School District,” Trask said in a press release.
Quite a gesture from the Raiders, to say the least. It’s even more impressive when you consider the Raiders are donating 10 percent of the gross proceeds before the NFL takes its 34 percent cut.
For more information, call 800-Raiders or logon to Raiders.com

  • Raiders for life

  • DKnight007

    Did the Raiders trade down?

  • 1960AutumnWind

    OK who’s the man now! I predicted trade twice in the last 2 hours. Just call me Shark Catchers apprentice LOL…

  • mcfadden20.

    We get their 23rd in 5th and prolly 7th ?

  • guest123

    Leinart isn’t going to be anything more than the backup QB so why the hate? He brings a lot of institutional knowledge of Greg Knapp’s offense. That can only be good for TP

  • DEATHROW 55

    R u fikkkin serious we trade it after all that gawd am wait and anticipation.

  • aig-raiders

    dang. Reggie is getting more picks. Yeah.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Raiders pick at #158 now

  • Al_is_theraiders

  • DKnight007

  • guest123

    Where’s the Lions pick at next?

  • SharkCatcher

  • Dakota

  • 1960AutumnWind

    Ok steve and Jerry stop with the donation of Season ticket puff pieces and find out what the trade terms are….

  • hellsbells

    We just picked up avril

  • DKnight007

    Not stupid. If McK has a bunch of player rated evenly and if does down 9-10 spots and gets an extra pick or two…why not trade down?

  • SharkCatcher

    Call me Miss Cleo 2 for 2

  • Dakota

    damn, rock beat me to it

  • http://www.addictedtoquack.com RaiderDuck

    Lions have a pick at 158. I’m assuming we get that and maybe a sixth-rounder, too?

  • guest123

    picked up a 7th rounder #230

  • aig-raiders

    So far we got 2 players that played and produced on the field. No more freak athlete trying to play football. Thank you Reggie.

    You forgot about Suh. They traded Megatron and Suh for our 5th.

  • SharkCatcher

  • xraided

    wow Leinart likely to sign soon! per adam sh!tter

  • http://www.addictedtoquack.com RaiderDuck

    So now we have six picks in the draft. Cool beans.

  • xraided

    guess Pryor isn’t quite ready for a backup roll yet, or is Matty going to be a 3rd stringer?

  • YoungAmerican

    Interesting how many offensive linemen are going in the middle rounds.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I think we wanted Menzie and traded down to regroup

  • beach

    # 158, Will Massaquoi or Winn still be alive?

  • Thec

    You forgot about Suh. They traded Megatron and Suh for our 5th.

    =============================================

    I could see them letting pryor compete in camp for the 2 spot and if he’s not ready they have leinert ready to step into that spot.

  • 8RaiderReign8

    I called him trading down the fourth

  • 1960AutumnWind
