for one, the league has a weighty decision on its shoulders. what to do, if anything, about the alleged involvement of one ofits biggest stars. the nfl telling abc news they haven't determined a timetable for a decision yet. but many speculating one could come as early as this week. brady, who has been coy about the controversy -- >> i don't have really any reaction. >> reporter: -- was hit hard by the 243-page deflategate report released last week. stating sit more probable than not brady was at least generally aware of the up appropriate activities involving the release of air from patriots' game balls. the scandal transcending sports. >> he [ bleep ] knew. >> reporter: and drawing the ire of pundits. >> they need to suspend tom

example out of tom brady. ultimately i think a fine is significant enough. cheating is cheating. if you look what the new england pateriots allegedly did, it's a minor infraction. it doesn't impact the game the same way as p.e.d.s or stealing signals. they won the afc title game 45-7 not because of deflated footballs. >> the colts were asked after the game and when this whole thing came up they said the patriots were the better team here. that is one issue, yes. it didn't affect the outcome of the game. and yes, it is a minor infraction. a lot of parents watching saying cheating is cheating breaking the rules breaking the rules. if you don't have a penalty for that what does that say to -- a lot of parent who is are with their kids? >> it's the wrong message. no doubt about it. fair play is the most important
thing. you look at the xhirgs of the nfl, he normally wears two hats. he has to represent 32 owners in the national football league. on the other end, he has to quote unquote protect the shield. integrity is the most important thing. as a former player. as a fan of the game. he has an obligation. cheating is cheating. someone has to pay for this. >> we'll find out. >> it's not the end of it for sure. >> thank you, jesse. now theo the outrage with an airline this morning. a mother and her daughter kicked off because the daughter has special needs. neal karlinsky with the story. >> reporter: this morning, big controversy over the moments captured in this video. paramedics escorting the beegle family from oregon off the flight. the pilot made an emergency landing. the big threat? the beegle's 15-year-old daughter with autism.

disruptive than a crying baby. and thought the emergency landing was extreme. this morning, donna says she plans to sue united calling it discrimination. and she's asked the faa to investigate. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky karlinsky, abc news seattle. >> faa will be on that one. we turn to amy for the morning's other top stories. a violent prison riot overnight. >> in nebraska. setting fire inside cells. the smoke the visible from outside the building. it all started when guards tried to break up a large group of inmates. two of them were assaulted. two inmates wouned. one of them shot. officers working overnight to secure the facility. an apparent snub this morning from one of america's biest allies in the middle east. overnight, the new king of saudi arabia says he will not attend the arab summit this week. he blamed a scheduling conflict.

7-month-old son, kolton strapped to his chest. he flexes muscles with his wife smiling next to him. he says it was a natural reaction. not so natural for mom who said later she was still shaking. we all know every mom's reaction would be to duck and cover the child. the father is like i got this. the gm of the phillies said he was think of offering a deal to the guy. all right, now to the first lady, michelle obama, delivering a powerful commencement speech over the week end, and opening up to the pressures she felt as the first african-american first lady. >> michelle obama. >> reporter: the first lady uncensored. >> the road ahead is not going to be easy. it never is especially for folks like you and many. >> reporter: giving an inspiring and impassioned speech this

affecting winston's game. >> we all have things we're dealing with off the field. guys no when it's time for football. >> reporter: one of kinsman's attorneys saying this countersuit is counterintuitive. he's aljing injury of his reputation all of his past conduct will become front and center. one of the coaches describing winston as ahead of the game. >> is this countersuit a legal move or a p.r. move? >> it's a little bit of both. i think he's trying to do two things. number one is to blunt her case and try to force her to the table. number two is so he can say to sponsors and to the public not only did i not do this but look at this. i'm actually countersuing her. remember if he loses his case and she loses her case, he wins. and that's the crucial equation i think his lawyers are thinking about. >> but there is a risk here? >> there's a small risk. the risk is by saying as lrks
insey points out, you damaged my reputation. my value in the marketplace has gone down that means any and all alleged bad acts that he's committed in his past come in. because, they impact the value of his brand. things that might not have come in in the past. some allegations of shoplifting some crab legs. another case in a burger king. those sorts of things might not have been relevant in the case. the question is does anyone else come forward? >> how vong is a case? >> his countersuit is not a strong case. if you view it from the point of view of no he doesn't care about winning, it might be a good move. we have the latest on the woman accused of killing her fiance while on a kayaking trip. her lawyer speaks out this morning. tom llamas has the story. >> reporter: this morning,
