2:31 am
integrity and the public confident in the game of professional football. his attorney says he will accuse the league of poor disciplinary choices adding i am can have confidence the wells report will be exposed as frail in fact finding in logic. he's bob costas on the appeal. >> the commissioner can hear the appeal himself but he could also decide to refer it to an independent arbitrator. that might play well in the court of public opinion. he could be saying see, look? let someone else verify for you that i have been thorough and fair. that is up to the commissioner. the four-game suspension gives them a little bit of a pad. let's say under whatever process the appeal results in a reduction, at least then it's not going from two games to one. it's four to three or two and there's still teeth in it.
2:32 am
>> if after the appeal the four-game suspension stands brady would return to action on october 18th against who else but the indianapolis colts, the very team that turned into the underinflated footballs in the first place. made for television. meanwhile robert craft released a statement which reads in part despite our conviction that there is no tampering with footballs. it was our intention to accept any discipline levied by the league. today's punishment however far exceeded any reasonable expectation. tom brady has our unconditional support, our belief many him has not waivered. they're going to fight. let's go to the white house as the obama administration stands next to the original standing about osama bin laden.

harsh, i don't think that's practical and rounding people up door to door isn't practical either. we need to enforce the laws of our country for sure and the boarder. a practical solution of getting to fixing the legal system is also allowing for a path to legalized status. not citizenship. if you've been here for an extended period of time you have no neck sus to the country of your parents. what are we supposed to do? there's not to be a porntint where we fix the system so legal immigration is easier than illegal and show some respect for people, a kid that might have been here ten years, so say you're not allowed to go to college, i think there's a point past which we're over the line. >> bush is also facing backlash for his comments in the same interview about iraq. saying he would have authorized the invasion of iraq even knowing what we know now.
