Good morning -- in the -- -- and now it's just finish out the season with a three game winning streak to avoid the team's first losing record since 2007. The Bucs come to town this Sunday an interim head coach Joseph -- says. They'll continue to just take things one game at a. Time don't worry about the national football and you can go bowling news you can't buy everything you -- -- you do what you yet. Show up similar work hard to get better we'll of course keep working together won't work hard to be accountable and other coalition would happen. The black and gold are about to get some closure stemming from the NFL's bounty probe. A person familiar with the decision says former commissioner Paul Tagliabue will rule this afternoon on the latest round of player appeals. And that any potential punishment will be delayed by a week. The delays decide to give federal judge in New Orleans the opportunity to rule on the pending motions to throw the suspensions and removed Tagliabue as the appointed arbitrator. All the patriots have made -- every lab statement on Monday Night Football. Brady pointing out his protections in the gun gets the snap propped -- the pro. He says he looks long.

Today have four on sports talk -- this close this season solely due to the absence of coach Sean Payton. Hi Steve Geller with your early morning -- 5:52 minute Tuesday morning two weeks from the day's Christmas. Moon. Man this year's line by means three weeks from today will be January 1 2013. Tomorrow's 121212. That's pretty cool -- them that'll happen and over him and saw at least that's where alive newscasts and that and it went out you know. You know if you believe the -- down there and Andy did this month in the world will be you know exploded a fireball something that your government. The last time until the year 3001. While the same date month and year. In the date 121212. It is such things -- ego suspension for its players ruling expected today from former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue. First question is. Why do you expect the expect these suspensions to be fears and harsh and can they or will they extended the next season. See that's -- the question of extending into the next season is definitely a big question right now Vilma is this four game suspension. Jonathan Vilma is as for the year and Will Smith originally it was four games. Jonathan -- was originally the entire season right exactly and it's just a question now -- if you Will Smith accepts this which. The players have been adamantly fighting this declaring that they they don't want to admit to any guilt they were given a proposal by the by the league. And was denied. I just I just think this that is gonna carry on again to another phase and I think it will end up extending to next season because. Of the players just don't. Aren't accepting the. Because there. Convinced that they were innocent and it did no wrong the -- they were out there Robert a settlement that they turned down. According to report threat right exactly in May just be a -- -- -- -- guilty they did not doing that yet it was they felt that statement there were the wording and if that. There was -- and you know a truce and that made them. You know look bad in and they're just not willing to admit to anything that -- any wrong there was no Downey no pay for performance programs this what is there. I'd say you think this thing drags on. Well past today's ruling that federal goes back to federal court and then we'll see what happens at from a fan's perspective I'd like to see it go away. You know I know -- the double wants to get paid and Will Smith wants to get paid and I stand that -- -- -- fighting for what's right and constantly believe there in a -- They wanna prove that but from a hand fan's perspective. I'd very much like deceit. -- suspension served at the end of this year and it not be an issue. And -- states can start fresh and new and. But to me in in your heart apart if you know that you did nothing wrong how can you accept that somebody. You know you accepting some accusation except that -- -- to -- brief break now Mottaki entertainment sports like experience that Steve gallery here on WWL. I'm looking your wintry forecast next. Our eyes as some people love this fall -- thank you for the text messages and 87870. Other people eating it well that the editors if you don't like it matters -- it'll change.
