    What a crappy guy, wanting to spend more time with his family.

    Move on folks, nothing to see here.

    Timing is really bad - whatever the reasons may be. Hopefully it will not impact training camp in any adverse way and that the installation of the new blocking system will be seamless.

    Thanks for the link.

    These are the too biggest things I take out of the article.

    "Wisniewski, a former Raiders offensive lineman, is expected to work with the Raiders is a lesser capacity, perhaps in a game-day role. Thus, his strong relationship with the team is intact."

    "His departure from the staff should not impact his nephew, Oakland center Stefen Wisniewski at all. He was a standout at guard as a rookie. He is transitioning to center. The source said Stefen Wisniewski understood his uncle’s decision."

    Feeling much better about it after reading this.

    saying it was due to personal reasons and that Wiz would continue to assist the Raiders as an ambassador...what ever that really means.

    No, you got it wrong. I heard from a guy that there's a fox in the hen house. The rooster got traded.

    Glad to see that Big Wiz is going to be assuming a role of an ambassador on the team & he can still be used in game-day situations when needed. It would be a shame if we lost such a Raider Great, having been on the sidelines since the late 80s, altogether. I think it's kind of nice being able to get involved in your nephew's legacy with the Raiders, too - I'm sure Little Wiz appreciated seeing him every day.

    Also, interesting that the Raiders have decided not to fill the position & just go ahead with Pollack at the helm..

    Best wishes, Mr. Wisniewski, and I hope everything is okay at home!

    Slade Norris told him to leave, and what Slade Norris wants, Slade Norrris gets. Fact!

    As " ambassador" I hope that means he goes to the opposing side line before every game, gives the head coach the finger, and calls all the opposing players wieners!

    Amateurs train until they get it right... professionals train until they can't get it wrong.
