7:10 am
destroyed the cell phone he used throughout the scandal and the league admitted that was tampering with evidence. they call the entire appeals process a sham. the nfl's biggest quarterback playing defense. tom brady teeing off on the league's decision to uphold his suspension over dfgeflategate calling it disappointing. but brady had the sim card and cell phone destroyed. ordering his personal assistant to do so on or about march 6, 2015 the very day brady was interviewed by fwrart sinvestigators. that kept text messages away from the investigators. the league saying the electronic data could no longer be recovered. goodell wrote rather than failing to cooperate mr. brady
7:11 am
made a deliberate effort to under mine the investigation and conceal evidence. brady's camp insists tom was transparent. the players union said the league based the suspension on a smoke screen of irrelevant text messages instead of admitting that they have all the phone records they asked for. they plan to appeal in federal court on bray ti's behalf. brady maintained his innocence at news conferences. is tom brady a cheater? >> i don't believe so. >> reporter: and in high profile interviews. >> the facts will come out after the super bowl. how will the facts come out? that will be news to me as well. >> reporter: the revelation could be tarnish on his golden boy reputation. >> the people who were already inclined to be against tom brady to presume he was guilty. they have more ammunition. the people on the other side of the coin don't know what to say. >> some of his patriots rivals

7:13 am
or pine tar on a bat. it's gamesmanship. it's not awful. it became awful because of the way the league over reacted and brady didn't say what he could have said. >> if you read the 19-page report and i know you have i thought this isn't about deflating football. this is about a cover-up someone who didn't cooperate, someone who destroyed evidence. >> it's always the cover-up rather than the crime. why didn't he say, look the equipment people knew i wanted the footballs as at the lowest permissible end of inflation. if they went beyond that i take responsibility for it. i have communicated my preference and i didn't order them to do it. >> the league fwaif him an out on the text messages and e-mails. they said your lawyer can go through them and hand over to us the ones that are pertinent. >> the notion that he was toing
7:14 am
what would be understandable trying to protect private information, that doesn't apply here. >> what was the next step? it's going to federal court. if he applies for an injunction fine. the case goes forward. he can play the first four games. if he ultimately loses he could face suspension in the middle of the season. >> the legal experts i have read weighing in on this say generally speaking a court won't grant an injunction unless they believe you have a good chance to win after it's reheard. he has to make the case. what it hinges on isn't whether the evidence would stand up in criminal court. it's whether under article 46 of the agreement between the players and the league goodell has the right to do it. whether it's the right decision is separate from whether he can uphold the penalty and hear the appeal. >> it's about process, not merit. >> and people are comparing it to the dallas cowboys and
7:15 am
domestic violence. he got four games. are these comparable? >> not even remotely. but the league can say he sat out all but one game last year and was paid. this year it was ten games and an arbitrator reduced it to four. they say it is consistent with penalties for using performance enhancing drugs on the first offense. >> stay in new york. we'll need you. >> i'll go to the cot in the back room. >> we have to start at 7:00 a.m. unfortunately. >> unfortunately yes. >> now to natalie with the headlines. >> a florida man is in custody charged with plotting to set off a backpack bomb at a beach. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. the fbi said he was inspired by isis and came to the attention of authorities in april after advocating violence on facebook. he was arrested after what he

9:43 am
see how they would handle a difficult situation. >> let's get to specific questions you should be asking. i think you ask a question that's universally important whether it is a child or an older person that the caregiver is taking care of and what it should be. >> the most important question you can ask is tell me about a day in the life from the minute you start until the minute you end that's similar to our situation. that question will answer everything you need to know. have they done the job? do they have good experience? are they acting in a way that's similar to how you want your family to be treated and you can ask direct specific questions based on the candidate's answer. it gleans the important information on the how-to of if they can really walk the walk and talk the talk. >> absolutely. you say that's the way you help determine if that person is the right fit for your family right? you have to do your homework, research, background checks, look at the resumé and make the
9:44 am
phone calls. >> that's right. verify, verify. if you have done that then it comes down to personality and preference. your older or much older atultdult knows the personalities they mesh with well. also, everyone has preferences in life. when those are respected, that comes to the point of dignity andle real true care for the older atult. >> what about mistakes? mistakes will happen on the job. how do you know if that person will be able to handle the situation. how important is it to say what would you do if something went wrong? >> i always ask that. i feel like maybe the person will try to minimize things a little bit. what you are worried about is they will put their job or pride above your loved one. if they say, i wouldn't make a mistake that's concerning. if they i say, say there was a fall or a child swallowed something they weren't supposed to. you want that person to say, i
9:45 am
will call 911, the doctor, you first. they will take responsibility. >> and critically important as an employee, you want to seeredirected. do they take mistakes in stride have motivation to change? they will make mistakes during the trial. they don't know your family. it's how they respond to the error thatle tells you what kind of person they are. >> quickly, sometimes there are warning signs of the situation if the fit isn't right for you. what should you look for? >> all right. it's easy to have a change in medical or health situation. two of the warning signs are fearfulness and lethargy. fearfulness could be abusive speech or treatment. something like there's been a situation in the home they are not looking at. lethargy can be from a medical condition, from mismanagement a

9:47 am
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. what are we missing here, janet? because with citrusy peel shine, i might as well be spraying orange juice on...grape juice. get serious, get a cleaner with bleach in it. that's right...i'll get it. clorox. bleach means clean. what if getting ready was this easy? now teeth-whitening is with the colgate optic white toothbrush plus whitening pen just brush, whiten, and go!
