. [cheering] today the broncos take on the patriots. we are at king soopers at 38th in sheridan. i have a friend to help me, this is cynthia. what time did you get here this morning? >>10 minutes to 3:00. magnet. >> i related. >> what did we -- what we have in store for the broncos -- weather today? >>we have 47 degrees with a chance of snow showers. >> that's right, here's your magnet. let's get to the rest of the forecast as she was mentioning, a chance for rain and snow that come -- that could come after or during the last part of that game. temperatures at kickoff will be around 47 degrees and by 4:30, temperatures at 39 degrees.
in from the west, a system just off to the west. this will change our weather pattern for today. snow is already out towards the western slope and it will continue to increase of the day goes on. several travel but -- advisories in effect. 48 inches in the central mountains -- 4 to 8 inches in the central mountains. temperatures right now the 20s and 30s. afternoon highs in the upper 40s , and we could even see 50s closer to downtown. partly cloudy to start off in later on we see that chance for -- to start off and later on we see that chance for snow. you are too sweet. she just said i was beautiful. >> don't stop. thank you. [laughter] tracy, we will toss it on over to you.
>> you do a great especially in that sweater. if you're traveling through the high country, driving out west moving fairly smooth right now not a lot of drivers and you are not really bad -- battling the weather limits. however that will change-up. that snow will start to push in late morning throughout the afternoon and into the high country. you will be battling the snow throughout the duration of your day today. if you are planning to head home later so we are anticipating a little rushed here. earlier than normal with those travelers heading back into denver especially with that broncos game as well. we will want to beat the snow. travel time right now right around 40 to 45 minutes, the green line all the way. we are starting to see if you were shot -- travelers -- we are starting to see a few more travelers but nothing major.
out driving it back -- driving back, make sure you are prepared for the weather elements as they hit the road. >> we see quite a few people heading back, thank you tracy. >> you might want to tune into cdot radio during the week. just log onto c o trip.org. >> let's get back to the broncos. that's what everybody cares about today. this will be the 17th time that peyton and tom brady have faced each other. it's going to be an epic battle. brady has won in 11 games so far. i am sure peyton manning cares a whole lot less about that number than he does about the super bowl rings, tom brady has four of them, peyton manning only has one and he would love
head for times -- gone head-to- head four times in the playoffs , and when peyton has the advantage he's 2-0 against brady. >> the coach just got recognized for the defense. coach wade phillips won assistant coach of the year this past week. >> and aqib talib will face his former team today. he only played 19 total games because of -- suspension during the 20 points season -- 2012 season. >> here are your parking options for the game. on state -- on-site premium parking is reserved for season ticket holders. if you're planning to come down you may want to come down early. parking lots open early.
aquarium and that ranges from about $10-$15. >> both looking to be king of the game today but the question is who's the king qb when he -- when it comes to making money. the denver broncos quarterback ten-year earnings on and off the field for $243 million, making him the most marketable player and highest-paid player in nfl history. of course fans are hoping for a big payoff today. >> i do not feel bad for tom brady at all for not coming back -- coming close to that amount. >> let's get over to you with the news headlines. we are following breaking news from du, the department of campus safety says they have reports of a forcible fondling in the area. a meal wearing a hoodie grabbed a woman from behind before
no word on whether this is related to a forcible fondling that happened in the du area last week. and people in alaska woke up to a major earthquake this morning. the 7.1 magnitude quake struck about 20 miles from anchorage. the national weather service says there is no tsunami threat. no word on the extent of damage or repair entered -- any injuries. crews are scrambling to clear roads as travel restrictions are expected to be lifted today. some people are even calling it snowmageddon and for good reason. it dropped more than 26" in central park by midnight and hundreds of thousands lost power. i want to show you what it looks like in dc. they were right in the bull's- eye of the storm.
if they braved the storm. others decided to break out the skis to get where they needed to go. even emergency responders had trouble traveling through the areas. i want to show you another low blow from mother nature in new jersey this time, the destructive impact in new jersey. rising waters turned streets into rivers. water was nearly 20 inches high in some homes and homeowners say they just finished rebuilding after the fed -- after the major flooding from hurricane sandy. stormy weather is to blame for delays and canceled flights . there were 49 cancellations -- at least that many expected today and that could impact folks trying to get here to watch the broncos game so we will keep you posted on all of that.

[cheering] we've got a great crowd out here. there will be a chance for rain and snow during the game, we start off dry and breezy but that chance for rain and snow will actually pop into the forecast late in the game and possibly after the game. 47 degrees at the beginning and then by the end temperatures around 39. temperatures around town right now really nice, we woke up to 37 really temperatures were in the teens in the high country.
as yesterday, 40s in some of the lower elevations, 30s and 20s if you are doing skiing and snowboarding and more snow in from the west. the winter weather advisory will go into effect and -- at noon. 4 to 8 inches near aspen and snowmass, lake city, telluride and steamboat springs. but the travel along i-70 could be difficult when you are headed back home. here's futurecast, starting off dry, and around 1:00 more snow on that i-70 stretch. that's around kickoff. towards the end of the game we will have isolated snow showers and you know those showers will -- this evening. through tomorrow morning before

these guys that this is a big game, to play hard and even if things aren't going well early in the game, keep working at it and eventually we will figure out ways to win. that's what we've done this year. if there's anything we've improved on from last year it's the kicking and screaming. that's the last time i'm going to say that. that's one thing this team is done -- has done is figured out ways to win like that. >> we will have more from him on game day live. what's better than three wins in a row? for wins in a row. that's what the odds were going for last night, for straight double use -- for straight ws. varlamov was the star giving up just one goal and the stars had over 100 shots which was a

game against number six colorado academy. can they keep the momentum going? they travel for the showdown and kristin -- christian came out hot. he leaps up and lays it in for two. colorado academy trailing the entire game, making it close though in the fourth. but too little too late, ca falls 68-62. arvada west hosted chatfield for a friday matchup. a big slam to tie up the game in the fourth and tic-tac-toe for chatfield. welts getting the layup to pull ahead, chatfield steals the show 61-55. >> denver waldorf and shining mountain -- in the 2nd, archer goes for two. the spartans trying to climb back in.
lead, he scores the jumper inside. they hold on for the win, 77 -- they hold on for the win, 77-50 the final. midway in the 3rd, evergreens warren throws it down to pull ahead. then it's the inside jumper but this was evergreens game. he kicks it out on the wing and they drain the three. evergreen tops them 47-35. eagles down 10-2 but looking to catch up, olivia woods waiting in the lane and she gets the ball -- the ball for the easy bank shot. we will jump ahead to the 2nd, cushman for the three and it's good. they extend the lead to 10. the ball decides it's can you
-- it's going to go in. the last time the monarch and cherry creek hockey teams went head-to-head it was in the state championship. not to mention, we went to double overtime. the two finalists met up for a regular-season game on saturday and spoiler -- not a similar result. first period, monarch on the power play, this would be the first of four goals -- four goals for young. young sprawled out backhanding the puck in, monarch with revenged with the final 922. -- 9-2. they were dominant in the pool for 28 straight -- the 200 yard medley relay though, was one where they didn't come out on top. andy turner -- got her team off twice with start. this is where it started to get pretty interesting.
caught up stroke for stroke and this would make for an exciting final leg of the race. she would kick it into high gear for the final lap. managed to touches the wall first and they win with the time of one back 40 9:76. -- here we will focus on britney beecher -- ahead of the pack but staying neck and neck with each other. in the end, beecher whinges at -- edges out anders with less than 2/10 of a second faster than her competitor. >> we want to do our best to prove to everyone that we have a good team this year. we are strong and working together. >> i am here for fairview, i want to do my best for the team. i love the experience here. >> and finally a dominating performance in the pool,

denver. 30 for laramie, and high country temperatures in the 30s and 20s. if you are doing skiing or snowboarding we will have a winter weather advisory that goes into effect around noon. the snow will just cause very hazardous travel in the mountains. all the way through tomorrow afternoon so we could see accumulation in the mountains from 5 to 13 inches. we could see breaks closer to about 1 pm and that snow increases in the high country especially along the i-70 stretch so if you're driving back to the front range, during the end of the game not enough overnight. i think it will wrap up before the morning commute but before
inches here in the metro area, some of that melting in moving off to the south. tomorrow the high 33 degrees with gradual clearing. on thursday and friday the highs will be in the 50s. back here at king soopers at 38 and wadsworth, we still have several magnets so come and join us. we will be here until 9 am or until supplies last. brian and jessica i wish you could see this cute little baby. i think she is saying go broncos, beat the patriots. right? >> definitely. we can see her. she is adorable. that's a young broncos fan and a lifetime fan right there.

patriots and the winner heads to the super bowl. and quarterbacks tom brady and peyton manning prepare to square off. one of them has been crowned the king when it comes to making money. and we may see snow around the game today. it could impact the roads also. >> good morning and happy sunday, thank you so much for starting your sunday morning with us. are you ready for this game? we are. the broncos taking on the pats and we are thrilled. brian and i are holding down sports authority while belen de leon is handing out the magnets and tracy -- tracey has the traffic. >> let's talk a little bit about this matchup, today marks the third time in three years that the broncos have hosted nasa championship game. like in 2014 it will be that --
get to the super bowl. the last time these teams met with no stakes online, denver won easily. the game also marks the fourth time peyton manning and tom brady have faced off in an afc title game. it's the number one seed to the broncos taking on the number two seed new england patriots. just after 1 pm right here at sports authority field at mile high. the broncos have played the patriots 46 times with the broncos winning the series 26- template -- 20. the broncos win today they will clinch their eighth time -- eighth all-time super bowl berth. let's take a look at the forecast, there are concerns for the possibility of snow and maybe rain. belen de leon is handing out the broncos magnets, you were saying there are a few left. >> there are still several left. we are out here in the range, the location is -- clear out here in wheat ridge, the
hi, liam, you said you were watching us on tv and you said let's see if we can get a magnet? >> yes. >> everybody wants to know the forecast for today as the broncos play. is going to be. >> 47, cloudy. >> and a chance for -- >> snowy or rainy. >> actually a little bit of both, a chance for rain and snow. the 100 per cent chance of -- >> the broncos winning. all right you did a great job so we will give you the magnet right here. go broncos. let's get to the rest of the forecast because that kickoff will have temperatures in the upper 40s. towards the end of the game is when we could see the chance for rain and snow. so i would pack those ponchos with you. towards the end of the game, a chance you could use them. the chance for rain and snow will come from this week system pushing in from the west.
in the high country and we will have cooler air dropping in from the north as well. closer look at doppler 9, snow falling in the mountains and the winter weather advisory will go into effect and last until monday afternoon. travel in the mountains will be dicey at times, pretty strong winds. temperatures right now on the front range are looking nice. a quiet morning, we do have clouds around town with temperatures below zero in some spots. highs today cooler than what we had yesterday. close to 60 degrees yesterday, 57 at dia. temperatures will be in the mid to upper 40s today. and in the mountains in the 30s. here's a look at futurecast. snow really won't arrive until later today. right now, take a look at this table, all of these magnets left. if you are wondering if you will make it, we still have
can you do me a favor, can you say take it away, trance -- tracey ? >> take away, tracey . >> as you head out west, to the high country, travel looking really great. normal sunday morning. not a huge amount of traffic but eastbound starting to see more and more people. that's what we are anticipating with the broncos game at 1:00 and the snow starting to set in. it will last through the evening so that's going to cause some travel issues as you head back into denver from the latter part of the day. we will run into the snow and we are expecting because of that, the early rush on i-70 eastbound back into denver. as for right now, only taking about 40 minutes from 6th avenue to us 6. it will be the eastbound traffic direction that we really start to watch here the next couple of hours.

about the number of rings. manning only has one, looking to get his second. they have gone head-to-head four times in the playoffs and have split four meetings. peyton has won the last two. he's 2-0 with the home-field advantage against brady. >> denver has the top-ranked defense for the first time in franchise history, and the coach just got recognized for that. coach wade phillips is being honored. he earned the nfl assistant coach of the year award this past week. >> and star corner aqib talib will play today, he only played 19 games during his time with the patriots. he signed a six-year deal with the broncos. if you're coming out to the day and planning on parking, we want to give you some app -- options. on-site stadium parking spots are primarily reserved for season ticket holders but there are single game spaces right between -- $20 and $30. they typically sell out within

lost power. drivers who braved the conditions ended up snuck -- stuck in snow. others decided to break out the skis and get to where they needed to go that way. even emergency responders had trouble traveling through these dangerous conditions. the storm dropped about 22" by midnight in the denver area. >> and another low blow from mother nature in new jersey. this shows the storm's destructive impact, rising waters turned streets into rivers. houses are just flooded. water was nearly 20 inches high in some homes, and some homeowners say they just finished rebuilding after the serious flooding from hurricane sandy. check your flights before you head out to dia this morning, stormy weather to blame for delays and canceled flights. this is a live look at dia, traffic moving along fine to the airport. at least 49 cancellations in

welcome back folks, we are live inside sports authority. the music is going, the sun is up and we are already having a blast. >> and i've got to say, belen, we know you are having fun but we miss you. >> i am out here with broncos fans, take a look at this one. what's your name? >> aidan. >> he's got a bronco magnet and so do all of you back here. [cheering] i don't know if i mentioned this yesterday but my dad is a patriots fan. i know everybody's like he's from texas, how is he a patriots fan? dad, i'm taking this over to you. no one will eat it for you. it's all for you. we are starting the trash talking early out here. let's take a look at the
chance for for -- rain and snow here in the metro area. but it will not come until later in the game and possibly after the game. kickoff temperature in the upper 40s, dry and breezy to start and then we will possibly need to use ponchos by the end of the game. temperatures right now feel really nice outside. we do have clouds around town, temperatures in the high country for some mountain valleys below zero. highs today are in the 40s in fort collins, greeley, denver and the high country in the 20s. take a look at this winter weather advisory going into effect around noon and lasting through about monday afternoon. that means the drive in the mountains will be a little hazardous at times. skiers and snowboarders, keep that in mind and also driving back home you will need to use those windshield wipers. drive around town and that's how it will stay until the afternoon. as the snow edges in from the west, it will increase from about 1 pm and then after that
showers. they will last into the overnight hours and wrap up before tomorrow morning's commute. with that said we could see one to 2 inches, overnight low of 22 degrees. near monument hill, we could get a bit more snow. tomorrow the high 30 degrees and then on tuesday it will remain cool, but a dryer 36. -- a drier 36. and then close to 60 deep -- 60 degrees by friday. but today it's all about the patriots. we still have lots of magnets left over. this is at wadsworth and 38 avenue so, on down, ryan and jessica? [cheering] >> i am shocked there are any magnets left at all. that's just incredible. i think maybe -- everybody has already picked theirs up so
a little dorky but hey. >> i couldn't do this by myself i had to call in all my creative prep. we have jaclyn lombardi from -- catering and julie baker. so here we go, we're going to tell you what we've got going on. julie, how about if you start with your lovely -- >> sure. i just made guacamole in the middle, and i put all sorts of stuff around it and built it with all sorts of aluminum trays . >> you are just an over achiever. >> let's see if we can get a better shot of this. >> that's beautiful, i love it. >> jaclyn -- is an award- winning chef. what did you bring today? >> i brought dessert as well. i have cake pops and in the middle of them are blue cake,

[laughter] -- sorry i am eating. and then you have to dig in -- we've got blue corn tortillas with blue cheese dip. >> oh my goodness, does anyone else want to try? >> and then a bouquet that weighs about 300 pounds. [laughter] actually it's only about $25
but it looks like $1 million. i used some foliage from my houseplants. and then i just added the roses, daisies and hydrangeas and wall all -- voil@. >> and this is obviously adult themed platter parties. >> yes broncos. [laughter] >> i am enjoying this so much i can't talk. >> now is there a step to this challenge, do we all stand -- sample it and then will be posted online? >> i think it's so incredible i don't know that we have a winner. >> i think julie might be the winner. maybe jackie, those cake pops look incredible. >> my cake pops, no. [laughter] but they are fun. >> i love them. everybody is a winner. everybody gets a trophy in this one.
you are kicking and screaming and getting it all you got -- i think that's what we've got is a football team this year. gary and the staff have done a tremendous job of convincing these guys -- the game is 60 minutes long and play hard, and even if things aren't going well for you early in the game you've got to keep working at it at eventually things will turn around. that's what we've done this year, if there's anything we've improved upon from last year it's the kicking and screaming. and that's the last time i'm going to say that. hopefully we don't have to talk about it next year. that's one thing this team has done is they've figured out how to win. >> we will have more with john elway coming up on game day live. what's better than three wins in a row? for -- four in a row. that's what the avs were going for last night. four straight ws. the avs one it last night, varlamov giving
varlamov giving up just one goal. where did elway spend the night before the big game? at the nuggets game. number 7 saw a good one between denver and detroit. finish. denver down 1. make it up 1. gallo with a fadeaway two into the pistons bench. that one with 23 seconds left and he had 30 points. denver holds on to win a wild one to put an end to the two- game losing streak. college hoops, see you at washington state. cougars the worst game in that -- team in the pac 12 but gave the buffs a game. in cu win the game -- cu wins a game they had to have. >> and mallory pugh made her national debut yesterday against the republic of ireland and scored a goal.
this is 9news. >> the broncos get ready to take on the patriots at sports authority and it could be a record breaker for peyton. >> donald trump has some loyal supporters but what he said about just how loyal -- is sparking controversy. many are taking out of the massive east coast storm. video of one resident who was enjoying the snow has gone viral. and some of our weekend swim results came down to the final stroke. we have the prep rally. >> good morning and thank you so much for joining us on this sunday morning. we are excited for game day.
down the fort at sports authority. we have all your news headlines back at the station, tracey with traffic and belen de leon with your game-day forecast at king soopers in wheat ridge . >> you can feel the pressure building up here at sports authority field. the broncos just one gave away from heading to the -- one win away from heading to the super bowl. hopefully some of his receivers can limit the dropped passes that have hurt them in the last few games. they have been geeking out the winds -- scratching out the winds and hopefully they can do that today. >> you know who may also break a record today, demaryius thomas inching closer to the receiving record, he currently has the most playoff receptions for a broncos player. he just needs one touchdown to pass rod smith for the all time, he also needs 121
also. >> and the question is, what's the weather going to be like later in the game? belen de leon has the answer. we have missed you but we know you are having lots of fun handing out those magnets. i'm surprised there are any left. >> oh my goodness, they are all gone. lots of people out here in wheat ridge -- you guys want to know what the forecast is going to look like and we have help right here from elizabeth who is going to tell us the forecast. >> it will be 47 with clouds and raining and snowing. >> yes so the chance of rain and snow comes later. thank you so much elizabeth. let's get into the kickoff forecast. around kickoff temperatures will be in the upper 40s. dry and breezy to start and those showers will hold off until late in the game and possibly until after the game. temperatures right now are in the 30s and we've even got some
below zero. highs today warmer than cooler rather than yesterday, 46 degrees here in denver. yesterday we made it to 57 so that gives you a feel of how much cooler it will be. we have high temperature -- the 20s and 30s. the snows already started in the mountains. that will increase and move toward us. the winter weather advisory starts at noon and goes until noon tomorrow. here's the futurecast, snow moving in from the west, increasing as the day goes on. we start off dry on the front range but the chance for rain and snow appears after about three or 4:00 -- 3:00 or 4:00. snow showers continue overnight but i think they will wrap up by tomorrow morning. with that said, 1" to 2" a possibility, and take a look at all of my new friends out here in wheat ridge.
so we have martie salt here -- >> 33, partly cloudy skies. >> united in orange, kobe has the forecast for tuesday -- >> 36, partly cloudy. >> that's right, is 36 cold? yes, it is. paul over here -- >> go broncos! >> what's the forecast for wednesday? >> partly cloudy and 48 degrees. >> thursday 52 degrees and partly cloudy. >> we can't see who you are, anthony -- friday -- >> 57 and partly cloudy. go broncos! >> there you go. there's the forecast for the rest of the week but we really -- all we want to know is this sunday right? go broncos! broncos! broncos! broncos! >> looks like you guys are having fun out there. as you head out to the high country today driving not going to be an issue. relatively clear roads. not
right now, but it is going to be heading back into denver eastbound. we will have that traffic pick normal. clear roadways right now. with the broncos game at 1:00 and the snow starting early -- late afternoon -- we could be that will last through the entire day. if you're planning to hit the road later on, plan for the snow. that's how we are anticipating the early rush on i-70 eastbound heading back into the city. so accounting for that snow and the game. as for right now, typical sunday morning smooth sailing both ways. taking about 40 to 45 minutes from 6th avenue to us 6. >> tracy we saw so many people heading back up, a lot of people heading back early.
>> don't forget you can listen to mountain travel radio every weekend during the mountain hours -- during the weather -- head to cotrip.org you are traveling. >> we've been getting in touch spirit. i want to take you to one of the best broncos homes we have seen around. mintern. this is the lovato family house . since the 1960s this family has been creating this broncos shrine in their home. they put up a sign every week to show who the team is playing next and they also have online on that fence with the handmade jerseys. i'm sure that's capturing a lot of attention. >> absolutely, much better seat than you had last week. i know you are here for the big game against the steelers. >> we were in charge of hitting the wall back there. >> we've got the great seats
should be a good matchup later today. >> so much excitement, can't wait. we want to cover breaking news right now, cruiser on the scene of a fire in denver happening on north decatur. we're told one person was hurt and we will update you as soon as we learn more about this. and now more on the massive storm crippling the east coast right now. pennsylvania got about 35" in some parts of the state. that's nearly 3 feet. whipping winds and snowfall leaving a lot of work for residents trying to dig themselves out of this mess -- we want to show you the look in bethlehem, people clearing sidewalks and it's just a whole lot of work for them as they headed to the end of the weekend. in other news, recock -- republican presidential candidate donald trump embraced his supporters saying they would stick with him even if he quote shot someone. trump made the comments while
christian school in sioux center iowa. >> people are small -- so smart and you know what else they say. i have the most loyal people. where i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody and i would lose any voters. okay? it's like incredible. >> the iowa caucuses will be held on february 1. the latest poll gives trump a slim two- point lead over senator ted cruz. and we go back to the coverage of the east coast storm that this is a little bit of a different angle. this video is getting a lot of attention -- he looks so happy, look at that bear. most in washington dc are staying inside but one of the city's celebrated residents was out in the snow. the big panda appeared to be enjoying the snow. he's 19 years old and a dad the boy is he still playful. he's whipping that snow around his face. some even said he was making snow angels.
welcome to the 9news prep rally. here is taylor. >> good morning, the last time they won -- they were playing in cherry creek it was the state championship game and we went to double overtime. the two finalists met up for a regular season game on saturday and it was not a similar result. first period, this would be the first of four goals for young. same period, a battle on the side of the net and young sprawled out backhanding the puck in.
-- 9-2. they ran away with multiple events and the team title. the 200 yard medal relay was on top. keep your eye on the orange cap as she comes up. she got her team off to the quick start, the breaststroke comes up next and this is where interesting. they caught up stroke for stroke and this would make for an exciting final leg of the race. veronica morris anchored it and she would kick it into high gear for the final lap. managed to touches the wall first in the win with a total time of -- another tight race focusing on lanes five and six. britney beecher and heritage's kylie andrews. the two would pull ahead of the pack and stay neck and neck with each other. beecher edges out edger. with less than 2/10 of a second faster than her competitor. >> we just want to do our best
team this year. we are all strong in working together. >> i am here for fairview. i want to do my best for the team. i just love the team experience i am getting in high school. >> and finally a dominating performance in the pool, sandra freeman put on a show in the 200 yard i am. she had a quick -- i and -- m. her time was the fastest by over five seconds. and with wrestling, centaurus high school hosting the top of the rockies meet. there were some great matches on saturday night, none better than the 138 pound final. tied it 6, legacy's ryan deacon breaks the tie with this reversal. sandoval got his third eight -- straight top of the rockies final.
trouble with shy and east's seth green. he got the technical decision by a final of 25. he says this is all part of his master plan. >> i try to get out there to a great start and what i wanted to do was score a lot of points, not just hold onto a close one. so i started off with high- intensity and i tried to keep that intensity until it was over and it just ended up working. >> and we had to show you this last video, a battle of the an the teams in the final. are dawson robertson in light blue had little trouble with legacy's that hubble. -- matt couple. and a huge thanks to liz martinez for sending in this video, pinnacle trailing academy with 12 seconds to go and junior noah martinez hits the three to tie things up. martinez would have two free
welcome back, both sides of the death penalty debate want to change the laws on the brandon rittiman regs is a deeper look at what lawmakers are thinking. >> reporter: right now on balance of pair -- balance of power, the debate continues and we have seen failed attempts to repeal this punishment. governor john hickenlooper says he would do that but he doesn't think the state is ready. on the flipside supporters want to try something new after the aurora feeding -- shooting case ended in a life sentence. kevin lundberg wants to make it easier for courts to impose the death penalty.
senator, representative, thank you both for being here. senator, you have bill that proposes to change the way the death penalty can actually be imposed on someone. instead of all 12 jurors unanimously, it would be nine of 12 jurors needed in order to oppose the death penalty. how did you arrive at that number and why lower this requirement? >> understand that this is the death penalty phase of the trial, because that's a much more subjective part of the decision. is, what shall the penalty be? we saw in a couple of cases this last year particularly the james holmes case that cold- blooded, premeditated murder of many people still doesn't yield the death penalty. to impose the death penalty it will take a supermajority of unanimous opinion which seems to be impossible to get to in some cases that arguably many in colorado believe should and does deserve the death penalty.
you do have one of these really tremendously awful cases, and you can't get the penalty day and that penalty. is it already over and why do you need the policy? >> it's not over though because we have the -- three people on death row currently. i know because all three are african-american and from my district, my age that went to the same high school. so we've got a problem with the death penalty and how it is being used in colorado, but the solution isn't making it easier to get a conviction. the solution is getting rid of it. we are talking about the highest of high punishment in colorado. bar. >> i don't think there are too many people who think governor sign this. he regularly advocates against the death penalty but says we yet. is this really more about trying to soften the ground on the issue and get people to understand where you would like the policy to go?
process, it is a process. it does take a lot of thought and that's a good thing. do we have a death penalty that functions here in colorado or do we not? i think it's a very legitimate question we need to face and it starts with a bill. so i have a bill, senate bill 64 that says let's move unanimous opinion to a supermajority and frankly i am negotiable on what that magic number is but i don't believe unanimous works because the bar is too high. will the governor sign it? if it made it through both houses, i believe that's a serious question the governor needs to answer. he's been really on both sides of this issue through his political career. >> earlier this year the governor told the representative that he doesn't think the state is ready for a repeal of the death penalty. do you agree with that or do you think the state is ready? >> i think we are seeing more and more states removing it and becoming more like
>> i know we have better investigative tools that we've had in human history but are you 100% shorter our system is foolproof that we could accidentally kill someone? >> of course not. i am not 100% sure that when we take a person and incarcerate them for the rest of their life that we are always accurate. >> but that can be at least partially fixed. >> well it can't be fully undone . >> no but -- this can be any undone. >> no and neither can the person who goes and commits the crime initially, that's a huge reason for this concept of justice, is to tell the person who might be considering such a crime that we will administer the ultimate penalty for the ultimate crime. the judge has the prerogative to say, timeout, this wasn't the right decision. i think we have a lot of safeguards in place. >> you brought up a valid point that this is not foolproof.
death penalty convictions overturned. even governor ritter ended up exonerating days post obviously -- posthumously, somebody that had been convicted and because of the -- it's irreversible, that's a dangerous thing to play with which is why the bar is set so high and it needs to be so high. >> it's irreversible only after satisfied as well. this isn't just a -- something that just makes it automatic. >> so obviously you guys are on different ends of the spectrum but you both agree the debate is important. 9news and i know other news entities have asked the public defender's office about the cost of defending the theater shooter and they will not give us that information. do you think something needs to be done to try to compel cost information to be out on the table? >>i wouldn't be adverse to seeing the cost because again i
expensive for colorado taxpayers. would i know what it's like to go -- to cost us? yes. i want to know all the details of the cost of government but that is not the only element when it comes to the true justice that we need for the people of colorado. >> senator lumber, representative know, thank you very much. welcome back, we are live at sports authority field, a big game today and an important one. the most important game of the season, two teams that know each other well and the quarterbacks do as well. >> lots to talk about which is why we have rod mackey joining us with the game day live preview. >> you talk about the most important game, let's look -- let's look back at week 12. had they not won this one, we would be in that awful east coast weather. >> i've said this before, if
they are just going to play -- they would have zero chance to win the game. >> come on, don't give them zero chance. >> zero chance. because the game is here -- it's here in denver and the broncos do have shot here today. >> let's talk xs and os. moments from now we talked to von miller and john elway. first let's talk about lawn. this is a guy gets gotta get after the quarterback and that is easier said than done. much of the talk this week was how that -- how fast tom gets the football out which makes it harder for them to get after him. >> he does and when you consider really starting with the pittsburgh game in december, the secondary has had some communication issues. they have gone more zone and it seems like with all their safeties now, david bruton is out, the communication hasn't been there and they have had a lot of receivers running open. that pass rush has to bring as
