Son of Raiders D-line coach dies at age 4


Tyson Williams, the 4-year-old son of Raiders defensive line coach Terrell Williams, died Friday night at Oakland Children’s Hospital from a “sudden and unexpected illness,” according to a team release.
“We were all shocked by the news we received when we arrived in Baltimore,” Raiders coach Dennis Allen said in a statement. “Terrell and Tifini have been dealing with unimagineable tragedy this week, and our hearts go out to them. We’re all deeply saddened by the passing of Tyson, and our deepest sympathies go out to Terrell and his entire family.”

Tyson Williams, born Nov. 1, 2008, loved cartoons and helping care for his eight-month-old brother, Tahj, teaching his brother to clap before he passed away, according to the release.

Allen said the defensive staff would share the workload in Terrell Williams’ indefinite absence.

The team requests that condolences be sent to Williams at team headquarters at 1220 Harbor Bay Parkway, Alameda, CA, 94502.

    It’s mind-boggling how the blog mods can allow such constant racist trolling, not IP ban the person.

  • GG

    Especially as this a blog that represents the Oakland Raiders, with supposedly a number of club employees/players/coaches who regularly visit it.

    And this is an official NFL/Raiders beat writers blog. So there are standards they must uphold. You don’t see this nonsense at SFGate and many non-official Raider forums, blogs, twitter feeds.

    And, this is a club which thru Al has stood up against racism and segregation. Al himself preeminently associated with that.

    So it’s extra embarrassing and poor of the blog mods, of Ibabuzz entity, to constantly allow such behavior here, not running a tighter ship.

    One could think that it’s the blog mods/employees themselves who troll this site.

    He no doubt goes to Middle School — and probably flunks Gym and Home Room. His favorite meal is the paste they use in art class mixed with his own nasal mucous, and his life’s ambition is to toss Larry the Cable Guy’s salad.

    Incidentally, did you know that Fangs’ mom is also his aunt, and his dad is also his uncle? And he only has one set of grandparents (and great-grandparents for that matter)? Sure makes Christmas a lot cheaper…
