    Brian Williams aka Bison Dele?
    Why did he change his name?
    Is it true that he was declared dead some time ago? I heard he ended his career to go to Thailand with his girlfriend and live there?

    Last I heard he was declared dead even though they couldn't find his body or the girlfriends and then before they could get to the suspect,his brother he offed himself.But they found evidence of foul play on the boat from what I remember so he prolly ended up as fishy food.

    His brother killed him on the boat.

    His brother then went to Mexico and tried to use Bison's ID to get $.
    Then his brother overdosed when they were closing in on him. Died quickly there after.

    damn, I should have looked up in wiki before asking a question. Just about every information is there, even about Bison...
    quite mysterious thing though.
    I'll never understand players who retire that soon.

    It was a pretty weird ending for Bison. He was nuts, and aparantly, he was the normal one in the family. Bad call inviting the brother on that boat trip too. There could have been some jealosy issues.

    I know Bison's dad.

    Bison was a head case. His father drives cab here in Vegas. He has the same gap tooth grin Bison had. Mr. Williams is only like 6'1", but Bison was 6'11". His mother was tall.
    ...Rumor had it Bison wouldn't shower after games. First sign.
    Anyway he and his bro, a boat captain and Bison's wife went for a boat cruise. [Bison's boat] The brother, another hothead, got into with Bison. The wife tried to intervene and got thrown down and died. The boat captain tried to call it in and he got killed. Then Bison died. The brother stayed on the lamb for a while, he tried to access Bison's money and was eventually apprehended. He had some kind of illness. But before he died he tried to explain what happened, saying you wouldn't believe it anyway.
    ...I got the impression Mr. Williams wasn't that tight with the sons.

    Wow. What a horrible chain of events for their family.

    That must have been a major argument they had on that boat.
