7:00 am
nbc 10 news" app. thank you for watching. have a great day and a great weekend. good morning. pressure rising. the nfl under fire once again as tom brady reveals he's yet to hear from league officials about deflategate. while the patriots quarterback repeatedly denies his involvement in the scandal. >> i didn't alter the ball in any way. here it comes a powerful winter storm set to barrel up the east coast starting today delivering a dangerous mix of snow ice, and rain. new denial. for the first time prince andrew publicly addresses accusations that he had sex with an underage girl. but will he respond to those startling allegations under oath? and mind-blowing. >> it goes to my brain. it goes to my heart. it just goes kablewie.
7:01 am
>> what has this guy worked up? something that will bring back great memories for all of us today, january 23rd, 2015. >> from nbc news, this is "today." with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. that lit boil reminded me of a young willie geist in some ways. >> really. >> same reaction still. >> it goes to my brain. it goes to my heart. >> we'll tell you what he is talking about later on. meanwhile, everybody is still talking about deflategate. >> we heard from brady and belichick yesterday trying to take the air out of the scandal. >> come on. >> wait a minute. think of what i could have made. >> they're online. you don't have to look far. our top story, the ongoing deflategate scandal. new questions are being raised after both new england patriots head coach bill belichick and
7:02 am
quarterback tom brady spoke out and denied knowing anything about underinflated footballs. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is outside gillette stadium in foxborough with the latest. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt good morning to you. neither the patriots' wicked genius coach bill belichick nor their golden boy quarterback tom brady has been able to silence the team's skeptics. as of late thursday four days after the story broke, brady surprised fans and frankly everyone paying attention saying that he still hadn't been contacted by nfl investigators. with the pressure on the patriots mounting three-time super bowl champion tom brady was forced to play defense. >> i didn't alter the ball in any way. >> reporter: just days after laughing off the controversy -- >> would you care to weigh in on that? >> i think i've heard it all at this point. >> reporter: -- brady was hit hard with tough questions. >> can you answer right now, is tom brady a cheater?
7:03 am
>> i don't believe so. i mean i feel like i've always played within the rules. >> reporter: but those answers didn't quiet his critics including several former players on espn. >> i did not believe what tom had to say. i don't believe there's an equipment manager in the nfl that would on his own initiative deflate a ball without the starting quarterback's approval. >> it's unbelievable. for you not to know what you touch every play. >> we have cooperated fully, quickly, and completely with every request that they have made. >> reporter: brady's denial came just hours after head coach bill belichick says he was shocked to learn his team was playing with underinflated footballs. >>explanation for what happened. i don't have an explanation for what happened. i don't have an explanation for what happened. i don't have an explanation for what happened. >> reporter: inside the patriots locker room brady's teammates shrugged it off. >> legarrette, do you have faith that the golden boy quarterback tom brady had nothing to do with
7:04 am
this? >> reporter: with the nfl review still ongoing, the patriots say they're cooperating. still unanswered how it happened and who's to blame. >> it's not the most difficult job that the officials have to do prior to the game. the referee will look at that football and he'll do the hand feel and make sure it looks good but it's not a very difficult or time-consuming project. >> reporter: after a half hour at the podium the patriots' star tried to put deflategate in perspective. >> this isn't isis. this isn't, you know -- no one's dying. >> reporter: it's unclear when the nfl will wrap up its investigation. frankly, it's unclear whether anybody will be punished in deflategate. the patriots leave for the super bowl in arizona on monday. >> peter alexander, thank you very much. mike lupica is a columnist and sportswriter for "the new york daily news" and best-selling author. good morning to you. >> good morning, savanna.
7:05 am
>> i want to talk about the nfl and its failure to pick up the phone and call tom brady in a moment but let's take this piece by piece, look at what brady and belichick said yesterday. as far as you're concerned, did they do anything to help themselves? is what they're saying about this plausible, credible in your mind? >> i actually found belichick more plausible, even though it was a case of plausible deny deniability yesterday. i talked to a very famous coach last night who said he had never asked a question in his career about air pressure in the balls even though the coach told me how they used to work these balls over once they got them. the brady thing was sketchier, savannah because he told you that he's presented these footballs -- i can't believe that we're actually treating a bag of balls like an obsession, but he gets these footballs 2 1/2 hours before the game. they're exactly right. he doesn't want anybody to touch them. then once the game starts he can't tell the two pounds has come out of these footballs. but does that mean he orchestrated this whole thing?
7:06 am
i can't say that. >> do you think this is a case where as we now know about tom brady, he likes to have his footballs a little deflated where he lets the ball boys push it to the line and then perhaps some other factor like weather came into play and now you're suddenly lyly below that threshold? >> savannah i was thinking this might be like bridgegate. could we ever say that chris christie ever orrered the lanes closed? no we can't. did somebody on the staff think this is what top might like me to to yeah but again, we don't know what the nfl has learned. just because they haven't talked to brady yet, he may be the last guy they talk to and when they do talk to him he might be the same guy that we saw yesterday which was one of the great quarterbacks of all time looking like he was running to be class president. >> let me pick up on that because i think that was -- if there was any stunner to come out of the news conference it was that no one from the league
7:07 am
had even so much had made so much as a cursory phone call to brady himself. i get it. maybe they want to do an investigation, get all their ducks in a row, but not even just picking up the phone and say, hey, what's your side of the story, what do you know about this? >> i don't know how this thing is laying out. they may be talking to everybody else that they can talk to with the patriots before they get to brady. and then we may find out what happened. and here's the thing, savannah. even in a world where we pretty much find out everything we want to know about everybody and we're having an unspoken thought that's against the law, we may never know exactly how this happened because everybody may do what brady and belichick did yesterday and say i have no idea how the air came out of these footballs. so apparently the only thing i can conclude is these balls deflated themselves. >> one last question though. i think what people are wondering about the nfl in this case is are they trying to slow up the investigation to get them past the super bowl?
7:08 am
>> oh they needed this story like a hole in the head after the year they've had with ray rice and adrian peterson and all the heat that goodell has taken. but do they want this to spill over into super bowl week? probably not. so i keep thinking this thing may be wrapped up by the weekend. but, you know, i'm an optimist. >> all right. mike lupica. we always think of you as an optimist actually. thank you very much. always good to get your perspective. appreciate it. >> thanks savannah. in other news the fate of two japanese men held hostage by isis is uncertain this morning. the terror group had threatened to kill them within 72 hours if a $200 million ransom was not paid. that deadline passed overnight. richard engle is nbc's chief correspondent. richard, good morning to you. normally in the past we have heard from isis -- >> good morning. >> unfortunately seeing video of what they've carried out. is it unusual that we're hearing nothing this morning? >> reporter: it is not that unusual. in fact isis has always made
7:09 am
good on its threats in the past. but its timing has not always been very specific. in fact with the american journalist steven sokolov there were numerous deadlines that were never met and ultimately he was killed. what we've seen with these two japanese hostages is that the kidnappers made an outrageous demand. they asked for $200 million and said they want to be paid within 72 hours. that's impossible almost under any circumstances, especially when japan has made it clear that it has no intention of honoring this demand. we're learning a little bit more about the two hostages themselves. one of the two japanese was a self-styled security consultant. he decided to go to syria to find a job, to change his life. he'd had a divorce in japan. he'd had a suicide attempt. he'd been described as something of a lost soul. the other hostage was a friend of his, a journaljournalist an
7:10 am
experienced journalist, who decided to go into syria to do some reporting but also to find and rescue his friend. and now these two men have their fates intertwined. >> ironic twist. richard engle, thank you very much. here at home, a wide area of the east is bracing for a treacherous combination of snow ice, and rain. and, al we could be seeing substantial travel problems over the weekend. ? that's right. and into the beginning of next week because there's not just one but two storms. here's what the storm left as you got out of new mexico and on into texas. we're talking about upwards of a foot or more of snow causing some treacherous travel. here's where we stand right now. the system itself is going to be making its way through the south. so we've got heavy rain. in fact we may be seeing some severe thunderstorms as. as we go to the map, atlanta, heavy rain probably airport delays this morning, rain right through the early afternoon hours. this system now pushes up out of the gulf and comes out into the
7:11 am
mid-atlantic. so by 6:00 tonight, we're starting to see precipitation make its way into washington. this blue line is the freezing line. that's the rain/snow line. it intensifies friday night. rain sleet, and slow snowe along the i 95 corridor. early saturday you have snow in new york so we'll watch this as it pulls away. wind gusts will really increase off the new england coast, could be up to 50-mile-per-hour win gusts. heavy rain down through the south, but as we get into the northeast and new england, look for about generally 3 to 6 inches of snow. new york city 3 to 5, hartford 6 to 9, bangor maine, looking at snowfall amounts 6 to 9 inches and then another system clipper comes out and by monday morning we could be looking at more snow from boston down to washington, d.c. >> we don't need it. all right, al. thank you. willie in for natalie this morning, and willie has the latest on the death of king abdullah from saudi arabia. >> i do matt. funeral services being held this morning for saudi arabia's king abdullah. the 90-year-old died on thursday after battling pneumonia.
7:12 am
u.s. leaders remembering him for his efforts to modernize the country and as an ally in the fight against terrorism. but at home in saudi arabia his legacy much more complicated. amon has more. >> saudi arabia is the world's largest producer of oil and the birthplace of islam. to say it's an important country in the region and to us back at home would be an understatement. that's why the ket death of the saudi monarch is sure to have implications not only in the region but in the u.s. who takes over next is just as important. the announcement was made on state tv. king abdullah bin abdulaziz, the saudi monarch and one of america's closest arab allies died after a recent illness. president obama described the king as leader who "was always candid and had the courage of his convictions." at home he pushed through economic reforms and tried to modernize education, opening the kingdom's first coed university.
7:13 am
a close u.s. ally king abdullah was instrumental in supporting america's invasion of iraq during the first gulf war. former president george h.w. bush calling it "a moment of unparalleled cooperation between our to two great nations." in the early aftermath of 9/11 saudi arabia doubled down on its relationship with the u.s. becoming a key ally in the u.s. war on terror and has been a lasting relationship through the obama administration. >> and i've been struck by his wisdom and his graciousness. >> reporter: but some critics said american praise went too far for an absolute monarch who ruled an undemocratic kingdom with a poor human rights record. president obama was criticized for taking this bow when he came face-to-face with the saudi monarch. in recent years, the u.s./saudi relationship has been challenged. king abdullah was increasingly concerned about the u.s.' nuclear negotiations with iran
7:14 am
saudi arabia's regional enemy. he was also frustrated the u.s. didn't do more to stop the bloodshed in syria's civil war. the new king will have to deal with two major threats to the kingdom. to the south al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is still a formidable force that wants to top it will saudi monarch, and they aren't the only ones. to the east in iraq is the military group isis which also wants to overthrow the kingdom. more change in the middle east. the president of yemen has resigned under pressure for rebels. this has severely complicated american efforts to combat terrorism in that country. the prime minister there also has stepped down. the massive fire at an apartment complex in new jersey now has been determined to be accidental. maintenance workers making some plumbing repairs accidentally sparked the blaze with a blow torch. wednesday's five-alarm fire quickly consumed the complex that sits directly across the hudson river from new york city forcing residents to evacuate.
7:15 am
took more than 15 hours for fire crews to contain that blaze. a duck shot by a hunter in washington state has tested positive for h5n1 bird flu, a relative of the virus that's killed 400 people globally. it's the first case of h5n1 ever seen in the u.s. it does not appear to have infected people or domestic poultry but does show that wild migratory birds can carry dangerous virus here. and if you think you've seen parents get a little intense at a kids' sporting event, wait until you see this. it happened in york pennsylvania during a girls hockey game. watch the dead dadd on the left coming up to the glass, gets up after a penalty is called smashes his hand through the glass, it shatters into pieces and falls onto the ice. if you listen closely, you can hear someone in the crowd yell, with the "way to go paul." that's paul smashing the glass. that the man has been banned
7:16 am
from that arena. apparently they said his wedding green hit the glass just so broke the ring broke the glass. glass everywhere. >> ridiculous. >> we've been there. i've been to little league game where is parents just get out of control. >> yeah. >> crazy. >> it's insane. willie thank you. >> mr. roker what do you have? >> way to go al! let's go to the map. at lot of wet weather in the mid-atlantic states gulf coast as well sunshine in the central plains. a real wintry mix moving into the pacific northwest later this morning. look for sunshine and 73 in los angeles. we're going to get to your local fo
7:17 am
good morning, i'm meteorologist bill henley. a cold start but we'll see lots of sunshine during the day today. and the temperatures climb to the low 40s this afternoon. it's tonight that gets messy. a nor'easter moves in with snow that will be accumulating late this evening and into early saturday. then a brief period of sleet and freezing rain before it changes to all rain before sunrise on saturday. dry sunday. a chance for some light snow monday. then it gets much colder tuesday, wednesday and into thursday. have a great day. and that's your latest weather. matt? thanks very much. there's news this morning tong measles outbreak tied to disney theme parks in california as health officials are rushing to stop the spread. nbc's halle jackson is in anaheim. halle, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. this morning disney is

7:19 am
with colorado oregon utah washington and mexico. california public health officials emphasize it's not just disney. airports mall and other parks or tourist attractions can be risky for people who are not vaccinated. the very contagious virus can survive up to two hours on surfaces or in the air, which is why doctors recommend getting immunized. >> the vaccine is safe. people are always concerned about that. and it's clear that you can protect your family and yourself from getting the measles by getting vaccinated. >> reporter: experts say that's the best way to keep the happiest place on earth healthy. even some adults who have been vaccinated are concerned about catching measles, and that's because a lot of us born between 1957 and 1989 may have only had one measles shot instead of two. and while that's still very effective, experts say if you are worried, talk to your doctor about getting a booster, guys. it can't hurt. >> incredibly contagious. worrisome. >> halle jackson, thank you very

correspondent jeff rosin has the story. >> good morning to you. police officers are brave and heroic doing so much for us every day, and they are being asked to do more and more. consider this -- you and i would get a ticket for driving while talking on a cell phone. it's of course dangerous. but cops are exempt from those laws. in fact often required as part of their jobs to talk on cell phones use their police radio, even type on a computer all as they drive. and the results can be tragic. officers plowing into families because they're distracted and so much of it is caught on police dashcam. austin texas, a police officer driving in his squad car. what you can't see, he's using his police computer and right here runs a stop sign. slamming into a man on a motorcycle who was seriously hurt. cot anl grovetage grove, minnesota, this officer on his computer too, when he turns in front of an suv. >> i got to go.

>> so what's the solution here? here's the takeaway for you. experts say they could change the position of the equipment to make it easier to use, for example, raise the computer up so the officers don't have to look down as far as you saw me do. the computers can automatically shut off when the police car goes over a certain speed, say 15 miles per hour. another idea from experts, put two officers in every car, one to work the equipment, the other to focus on drive, and some departments already taking action here. in ft. worth, texas, our nbc station kxas reported on this issue and the police department have there has changed its policy. officers no longer allowed to use their computers at all, guys while they're driving unless it's an emergency. >> the two-officer solution would seem to be the best but that's incredibly costly. >> lelsz officeless officers in less places. >> thank you very much. coming up on "trend,"ing," why is this little boy all fired up?

8:39 am
can't give $20, can't give $50, but i can give a buck and they feel good. they put it on the wall and somebody else comes and gets a free piece of pizza. >> you were saying not only is it a great concept and good idea, it's good pizza too. >> ultimately that's what counts right? it was a really good day for me yesterday. >> thanks for the story. appreciate it. up next three men behind a controversial dating advice book for women looking to get married.
8:40 am
8:41 am
we're back at 8:41. men want to get married. so why not to you? that's just the provocative question posed by the new book "single man, married man." >> that's a little harsh. a brutally honest guide to dating written by eight different men. three are with us now. we introduce them now.
8:42 am
guys good morning to you. >> good to have you here. >> there are eight co-authors of this book. as i said you're just three of them. gene you're married. je'kel you're single. >> gorsed. >> and frank, you're single. call yourself a serial dater. >> not necessarily, but that's the label i get. >> how did you decide to write a guidebook for women? >> it started out in brooklyn at my frozen yogurt shop with me and my friend frank gato and je'kel. we'd get questions at the yoga shop and we decided, you know what let's take this national and interview other men if they really want to get married. >> can we get a tight shot of frank, please? smile at the camera. as i read this from the book that you apparently put in there. "no matter where a woman was in life" -- this is a destiny's child song you seem toed a adhere to -- "she should always be able to cater to her man's
8:43 am
needs, prepare his meals, draw his bath marx saj his feet every now and then." you want to own up to this? >> yes. i wrote it. but pretty much what i was saying when you're in a relationship and the man is doing his part, a small gesture is preparing his favorite meal or massaging his feet shows you appreciate us. >> how is that working out for you? >> i give a great massage. >> keep that shot on frank frank. we have one more. you talk about cheating. men will cheat because to us it's just sex with no real motion nal attachment so we view it as being harmless. is that really how you think guys feel cheat, no big deal? >> some do because it's -- like i said, there's no real emotional attachment so to some menitis a physical act so they feel that it happens, drunken night, they don't necessarily kill themselves over it not to say they don't feel bad about it but it happens and they go on with their lives. >> let's move on here so we don't have to put frank in the witness protection program.
8:44 am
>> yes. >> what about this whole idea of questions -- you're asking women can they handle the truth, all right? a lot of women will ask men questions and you guys believe at times they really don't want to hear the answers to those questions. give me examples. >> well prime example would be if you're going out on a date with your significant other and she comes out of the bathroom dressed, well-dressed and says, honey, how do i look in this dress, do i look too fat? what do i answer? >> of course you don't look too fat. >> the answer is -- have you lost weight? >> absolutely. but the real question is can she handle hearing the fact that she does look fat in that dress. >> why would you even broach that subject? who cares if she can handle the truth? you're going to get killed. that's a lose-lose. >> they say they want the truth. do they really want the truth. >> is that what this book is supposed to be like a dose of the cold hard truth? >> it's for men and women, and we just wanted to answer these questions from why men cheat, can you handle the truth, stroking their ego. >> okay.
8:45 am
>> and just these common questions that women just had and they needed answers to. >> let's do a speed round here. i'm going to throw a couple things out, just give me like one-word answers. drinks or dinner. >> dinner. >> dinner. >> drinks. >> i'm shocked. >> shocked. you're single. calling or texting. >> calling. >> calling. >> text. >> i mean, like, really? >> frank. >> this is for frank because i don't know if you're going to get a date out of this segment. splitting the bill or the guy pays? >> guy pays. >> guy pays. >> guy pays but if she insists, let her. >> frank, you're a real dream boat. okay. number four taking someone home the first date. okay not okay? >> not okay. >> questionable. >> where is this going? >> i wouldn't look to necessarily do it but if it happens, carpe diem. seize the moment. >> seize the moment. >> last one, amount of months before it's okay to move in together. >> engagement. >> i'd say about 12 months.
8:46 am
>> a year. >> okay. >> two to three years. >> i love you, frank. >> frank, can you come back every week? >> of course. >> making all the other guys look real good. >> no no no. that's not fair. >> teasing. thank you. it's a fun read. thanks for being here guys. once again the book is called "single man married man." appreciate it. coming up next your answers to -- our answers, their answers to your questions for our "start today." oh my gosh.
8:47 am
8:48 am
we're back now with more of our month-long series called "start today." our four js, joy bower, jean chatzky, jenna wolf are helping you achieve your goals. each friday they're here to answer your questions.
8:49 am
are you getting a lot of questions on e-mail accounts and things like that? >> load. loads. >> all week long. it's been great. >> let's get to specifics. first one is for jean and this is from christy carlson. when should one refinance? our rate is 4% but we could get 3%. is it worth it? >> and generally if you can get 3% the answer the probably yes. but the thing you have to do is a little bit of math. figure out how much this refi is going to cost you and then take the monthly savings and divide the cost of the rhee phi byefi by the cost of the savings. if you'll be in the house more months than that it's good to go. >> can you throw a good percent at me? >> maybe 1% the cost of the deal but sometimes they'll roll it into the interest rate so people can pay nothing and do a no-cost-down one. >> jenna, you ready? >> ready. >> this is from jayne.
8:50 am
i just started walking four miles a day briskly, changed my diet et cetera. so far ten pounds in a month but i've hit a plateau. what do i do? >> congratulations, first of all. ten pounds is nothing to pooh-pooh. it's a fantastic number. now you want to change it up because your body know what is it has to do to get out four miles a day. mix things up. whatever you want to do to add to it walk faster walk longer add a spin class, some strength training. when you confuse your muscles you'll burn more calories by having to work harder. i say change things up and you will see a difference in the next month. >> jenna, thank you very much. jill you're on deck. this is from jessica sullivan. it says my kids school projects my first first grade work birthday cards, just can't part with them. not a question but you get the idea. >> i get the idea and i come from a mother who's saved every single project since birth even if i write hi on a post-it. if you keep everything and put them in boxes and put them in
8:51 am
the attic you're never going to see them. so when your child comes home with a project, take a picture of it. we all have phones now, take a picture, and there are sites like picoboo and they'll turn your projects into a book with the date on it. you can put it into a book and see everything and get rid of the clutter because you'll never look at it anyway. >> i like that. joy, last but not least, this comes from kelly. i removed tie et coke/pepsi after a long mental addiction. what can i drink besides water that is healthy and that doesn't contain aspertame? >> a i love this question and a lot of people can relate. it's always a good idea to pull back on artificial sweeteners. take advantage of the naturally flavored seltzer waters. no added sugar, no artificial sweeteners just carbonated water, poppy fizz like soda and natural essence from fruits.
8:52 am
if you want to intensify the flavor add a shot of 100% fruit juice into the glass, a few extra calories. you can take fruit juice, put it in ice cube tray freeze it and add those fruit cubes into a glass of water and as they melt you get a really nice flavor. lastly brew a big batch of interesting flavored teas and then pour it right into a pitcher over ice and stash it in your researcher refrigerator. great ideas, no artificial sweetener. >> every friday i walk over and say these ladies know what they're talk about. you're good. very impress. joy, jean jenna, thank you very much. keep your questions coming. coming up, brooke shields will stop by.

9:04 am
this is who i am i'm surrounded by good people i love my life i want more always creatively and -- but it's sort of like -- and i think my mom had to die really also before it was on my own terms. >> sure. >> which is important writing the book and the book's done. so i think it's all -- it's just falling into place. i feel very blessed and lucky. >> 50 is a great year i think. i had a great 50. 60 is the one i'm having trouble with. >> are you? >> you know why? >> look how great you're doing at 50. >> 50 you think i still have half my life to go. you hit 60 you realize, you know what -- >> you're on the back nine. >> i'm lucky i got another good 20, 25 years, maybe. >> i think vanity is the piece that changes sort of how we feel but especially women, it's all about -- not only women but -- matt. >> he's a beautiful man. >> a beautiful man. but i do think that when you think of it in terms of experience and what you have ahead of you, yeah. but even 60 like why not?
9:05 am
i don't know. don't worry about it. >> because you're not turning 60. there you go. >> i know you really only came here for one reason, to talk about deflategate. you've read and studied every angle of the story and you want to talk about footballs. >> i have wanted to talk about deflated balls for -- ever since i was america's famous person. >> this is what you've been leading up to. all these 50 years. >> this is why i'm turning 50 to talk about pig skin balls. >> you're not the only one who enjoys it. tom brady had the press conference yesterday. >> he did. >> he was asked whether or not these ball, infamous balls were in fact deflate fwid patriots before the afc championship game on sunday. here's tom brady. >> okay. >> no i didn't at ter ball in any way. >> can you answer right now, is tom brady a cheater? >> i don't believe so. i mean i feel like i've always played within the rules. i would never do anything to break the rules.
9:06 am
>> i don't believe -- are you a cheater? "i don't believe so." to the best of my recollection. >> it's like the world does and i'm just saying. but it's interesting how everybody's evading. i mean listen, the game was going to happen that way anyway. it was done. pats just routed them. that's fine. but i mean in a way the argument is it's been happening forever. it's still cheating. >> yeah. >> and yet, i don't know like -- i think it needs to be investigated but from both sides. you know i don't think there's just there's an investigation under way, but did one of the ball boys do it? >> there's a ball boy out there who just got a mercedes. >> i was going to say. >> how about bill belichick? >> bill belichick. the patriots policy is they've seen no evil heard no evil. here's bill belichick, the patriots head coach talking about deflategate. >> i have no explanation for what happened. i don't have explanation for what happened. i don't have an explanation for what happened.
9:07 am
i don't have an explanation for what happened. >> that's only part of what he said obviously. he also basically sort of threw brady under the bus. >> oh yeah. >> said i don't know tom brady might like his balls a certain way. sorry, i did not mean to say that. he might like his footballs a certain way. >> if we do the rest of the show through the eyes of a 12-year-old boy, i think basically -- >> but they're throwing it back at each other. everybody's accusing each other. i have to just zip up right now. >> no good way to talk about this. let's go to "today's" facebook survey. do you think brady and belichick knew about the deflated footballs? do you think they're lying in other words? our audience says 70% yes for bill belichick and for tom brady 77% yes. there may be some plausible deniability that in this case they didn't say go deflate these football bus over time the trainer knows tom brady likes it with a little less air and it's
9:08 am
part of our routine so brady can say i didn't know about this and belichick can say i didn't know about this but 12 years ago when he started playing quarterback. >> the rule is it has to be a certain way. >> different quarterbacks like it at a different weight. aaron rodgers likes it nice and full. >> yeah. >> has big hands. >> those hands. >> go pack. >> go pack. >> the funny thing is we had a number of those footballs, different -- >> yeah. >> and yesterday hines ward said oh yeah, when it's de deflated like that it's like catching a nerf football. no it's not. at least not to me. >> not only catch differently but they throw differently. >> but it's not like one is this squishy sponge thing. >> doesn't it become sort of dented right? >> a little bit. a little bit. enough of that. >> this will continue. but in the meantime president obama sat down yesterday with three popular youtube stars. >> sure did. >> glozell green, stephanie
9:09 am

i've had it with my moderate to severe plaque psoriasis-... the frustration...covering up. so i talked with my doctor. he prescribed enbrel. enbrel is clinically proven to provide clearer skin. many people saw 75% clearance in 3 months. and enbrel helped keep skin clearer at 6 months. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis,lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. you should not start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have symptoms such as persistent fever, bruising bleeding, or paleness. finally, clearer skin for more than a few days, weeks or months. enbrel works for me. ask your dermatologist if you can have clearer skin with enbrel
