7:03 am
dozens of cars swimming up to their windshields. are you ready for more? here throughout the mid-atlantic, there will be heavy rains, right along the coast. and the heaviest of it, still parts of arizona have to watch out today. but look at des moines. we'll be talking about severe weather there, talk in the nation's weather. for now, back to robin. >> okay, ginger. good to have you back from chicago with us. the shocking video that's rocking the nfl. we're learning more about the footage showing star running back, ray rice, knocking out his then-girlfriend, now wife, in an elevator earlier this year. the baltimore ravens terminated his contract. and the nfl suspended him indefinitely. ryan smith here with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, robin. less than two years ago, ray rice was a super bowl champion. now, his ravens jersey no longer for sale at the nfl store. he lost an endorsement deal and others are in jeopardy. revealing a video, on his brutal attack on his now-wife in a hotel elevator.
7:04 am
this is the shocking video that got star running back ray rice sacked by the baltimore ravens and suspended indefinitely from the nfl. rice, seen entering an atlantic city hotel elevator in february, with his then-fiance, janay. appearing to strike her once. then again. seemingly punching her so hard, she hits a railing, knocking her out. the associated press saw a version of the surveillance tape and reports, the two can be heard yelling obscenities at one another. and janay is seen spitting on rice. the ravens firing rice, after tmz released the video on monday. >> when someone that you care about does wrong, you know, and is faced with the consequences of doing wrong, and rightfully so, it is tough. it is hurtful. >> it was hard for all of us to see. >> as bad as it is, have to stick by him for a person. not by his actions at all. >> reporter: this morning, serious questions from some, about why rice wasn't ousted
7:05 am
sooner. the nfl telling abc news monday, that video was not made available to us. and no one in our office has seen it until today. but commissioner goodell did see this video, released by tmz sports in february, showing rice drags the unconscious janay out of the elevator. at the time, suspending him for just two games. >> it's appalling that it took a video to wake the nfl up. >> reporter: off the field, rice was charged with third-degree aggravated assault and apologized publicly to his wife. >> i made the biggest mistake in my life. she's an angel. >> reporter: prosecutors allowing him to enter a pretrial intervention program, with no prison time, if completed successfully. ray rice's camp hasn't responded to our request for comments. as for roger goodell, he admitted he made a mistake suspending him only for two games. now, many wonder if he will face
7:06 am
more fallout. dan abrams said. you heard with christine brennan said. it took a video to wake up the nfl? >> and you have to ask yourself, what's really changed? we had seen the previous video, right? of him dragging his wife out of the elevator. knowing that he had hit her. he was charged criminally. that was resolved. and now, today, the nfl is acting as if, oh, my goodness. oh, my goodness. look at what happened. what did they think happened in the elevator? we knew what had happened in the elevator. and i think they're using this to some degree as cover, to take a harsher position and give him a tough eer sentence. >> they say they did not see the video. this is the first time they've been seeing it. >> that's an important question, if he ends up suing the nfl. let's take a step back from it. even if they hadn't seen the video, they had seen the first video of him dragging her out. and he wasn't denying that he had hit her.
7:07 am
so, what changed? the bottom line is, yes. we've now seen the video, the emotional impact, et cetera. as a technical legal matter, it could matter, whether the nfl had seen the video previously because he could argue, wait a second. i was punished already. you took action against him. there's a collective bargaining agreement, et cetera, in place. you can't just go ahead and up it at a later time. an interesting question. i'll be interested to see what michael thinks, the union, silent. no statement from the union on this at all. >> i want michael to weigh in. i know you will be talking about this on sunday. what are you hearing from the players? and what about the union? people are thinking they may step up. >> i think anytime anyone sees this video, dan says what's the difference with the video? i caught a fish this big. and you see video of them catching the fish this big. the video was impact. it's not about the nfl. it's about ray rice and his situation with his wife. also, about domestic violence as a whole, outside of the nfl. this is an issue, where you have a guy that made a mistake, that
7:08 am
i wouldn't want to be associated with him. no one wants to be associated with him. he wouldn't be on my team. i wouldn't want him around in any capacity. and i think that that is the thing. i don't think -- i think roger goodell made a mistake. and he admitted that two-game suspension. i don't think he saw this video because there's no place for this in any part of society, not just the nfl. but any part. >> okay. thank you, michael. thank you, dan. we want to know what you think. should ray rice be allowed to play football again. tweet us with the #socialsquare and let us know. this is far from being over. >> you're right about that. going to turn to president obama, repairing to address the nation on his strategy to take on i.s.i.s. a new abc news/"washington post" poll shows seven out of ten americans favor air strikes against the extremist group in iraq. jon karl is at the white house with more on what to expect from the president tomorrow. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. more significant in that new poll, an equally large number of
7:09 am
americans in this poll support expanding those air strikes syria. this is a dramatic change of public opinion. there was a deep reluctance to get involved in the middle east. now, you see wide concern about the threat posed by a group that's been beheading americans, taking over large territory, large amounts of territory in iraq and syria. in this poll, 91%, 91% said that they see i.s.i.s. as posing a vital throeat to u.s. interests. >> but the president is not aprepared to announce he is ready with air strikes. and it comes with a time he is facing popularity problems. 56% of the country disapproving of how the president is handling foreign policy. >> reporter: and the single-biggest factor in that, is a majority say the president has been too cautious in responding to this threat. that's why he's giving the speech. he's not going to order air strikes on syria yet. he is going to make the case that he has a strong approach, a strategy for taking on this
7:10 am
group. >> jon karl, thanks very much. now, to a bizarre attack overseas. an undercover air marshal injected with an unknown substance by a man with a syringe, at an airport in nigeria. right now, the marshal is in quarantine. and brian ross has the latest. >> reporter: this unprovoked attack, as the marshal remains under close observation. the attack occurred when a team of air marshals was making its way through the crowded terminal in nigeria. a man with a syringe lunged at one of the air marshals, able to inject an unknown substance in the back of the marshal's arm. the air marshal was rushed through security and boarded the united airlines flight to houston he had been scheduled to work. now, with fears ebola or hiv, the air marshal was given a heavy dose of antiviral medication. and so far, there's no sign of 23 any problems.

of smartwatches. there's been wearables. but nothing that works great with the iphone out of the gate. >> reporter: first, the phone. leaked photos show what many believe to be a bigger screen and new materials. sapphire glass. a superhard, almost unbreakable screen. it may use that fingerprint sensor, and a chip to turn the phone into a mobile payment device. then, there's the iwatch or whatever it might be called. rumored to include a slew of health tracking sensors and possibly a wireless way to recharge. not all apple predictions of the past have borne fut. mac mockup images of these are what many expected the iphone to look like before its launch in 2007. will the predictions get it right this time? >> will apple live up to its own hype? it's a lot of hype and pressure to live up to.
7:16 am
