And very humid again today highs reaching around ninety -- still above average at 30% chance for some spotty downpours -- tomorrow's rain chance increases to 50% with -- right at ninety. And Saturday will go the 40% chance for rain with -- still near ninety. For the pinpoint forecast senator I'm meteorologist -- I'll tell you had the -- is really right around nine B for the next seven days so anyone who thinks that this cold front that's bringing us increased chances of rain is gonna make any difference you can forget about it right now it's 79 degrees at the airport in Kenner. 91%. Relative humidity man it's muggy clear and 76. At the National Weather Service office in slide down it is hotter than it's supposed to be this time of year. He is on the saints to find a way to right the ship and get a victory over the grounds. The tigers are looking -- easily handle -- wore off. With that and much more we say good morning and happy Friday eve the speed scale. The morning and yet the commissioner could be in trouble the NFL says that former FBI director Robert Mueller. Will conduct a probe into how police handled evidence as it investigate domestic violence claims. Against former ravens running back Ray Rice. Commissioner Roger Goodell says that Mueller will have access to all NFL records the announcement came after law enforcement officials told the Associated Press. And he sent a table right striking is that fiance to an NFL executive in April. You -- maintain that no one at the league had seen the tape prior to Monday when it went viral on line. Well 201 team will duke it out Sunday in Cleveland when the saints and browns meet. Drew Brees says the Cleveland's defense presents some challenges for the black and gold passing attack. They're pretty salty that's what they're made they're talented. It's a lot of just pulled the wrong -- covers -- -- -- -- that they'll play and a very good added. Cam Newton's return to panthers' practice wearing a thick flak jacket to protect his injured ribs coach Ron Rivera's says he expects the quarterback to start against the Detroit Lions Sunday. After missing the season opener at Tampa day. -- she's -- derail suffered a deep laceration to the head during a car accident Sunday morning. Coach less miles on the receiver status for Saturday's game against Louisiana Monroe street -- play this game he'll be fine. Now here's the big chief with more on -- issue getting ready to host QLMLSU. Coach less miles talk about some of his defensive players making different looks for the opposing team's offense. We -- the defense and group that cash roast beef to the pastor. You know our team that can handle inside run as well as she handled screens and draws and all those things as they court to feel. The tiger defense is coming off a shutout win over Sam Houston State entering Saturday night's game against Louisiana Monroe Deke Bellavia WWL sports today have four on sports talk a lot from -- in -- it's the -- players show with wide receiver Joseph Morgan. Plus QB -- QB Drew Brees. I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look. And it's 524 -- on Steve Geller with you on your radio I am starting to feel more and more and we'll see what I it to Robert smaller. Finds out in this investigation. What the NFL knew and when it knew it when you have a cop coming forward and saying hey. I gave the NFL -- media. They had it I gave it to NFL executives. I don't know if they watched it. But I gave it to them now I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that they didn't. That they didn't want to see it because. The NFL is in the business of making billions of dollars in its. One of the most exclusive and wealthiest clubs amber. 32 of those nations and the world's richest men. On football teams and their goal is to make more money at all time. And I don't know that it was in the NFL's interest ever let this thing become a huge deal to ever let people see this -- to ever let people know exactly what happened with Ray Rice. And so their first instinct apparently was too. Make it go away. The to me it's amazing that -- of being that this would not. Com now in some way shape or form to the public eventually. -- and maybe not as soon as it did but if -- was able to get a hold of the original video I just. Asking support us and taken together they're -- -- does that -- DMZ is that it went and that was just Ray Rice dragging his bad -- body out of the elevate -- they said even the punch video all that mistake as we haven't. And as a chair here. -- yet to me like I said that that won the first video becoming public I don't know how they didn't expect -- video number two to eventually surface and now. There -- under a lot of scrutiny and I think Roger Goodell -- going to be held to the fire on this. Well being of fires either a liar liar pants on fire for Roger Goodell. If he insisted to CBS which he did this week that as far as he knew he never saw the video and no one in the NFL at the video. Now all the cop comes out anonymously it's a thing if -- at all. Now either a lot -- you don't flying. Or Roger Goodell has no idea what's happening as the organization -- -- -- in vitro and a lot of former saints that we're about -- in the hole. We'll bought bounty scandal took to Twitter and voice their. You know but you know why trees you know why the NFL. Committed so many resources and so much time and effort to investigate in the -- and because the concussions because of the concussion lawsuit was to protect them. And save them money savient amount of money look we've busted the saints for doing this we're good guys we shouldn't lose this lawsuit now. Well in this case there was no money to be made by investigating Ray -- to the NFL just wanted to go way. You've got to go you'll be back -- 25 -- -- more sport we'll talk about football and games Sunday when we get Steve given back at your forecast right after the. Your forecast for this Thursday partly cloudy skies at 30% chance for spotty showers and storms and highs reaching about 92. -- tonight dropping down to 78. Rain chances tomorrow increasing to 50%. And Saturday 40%. Both afternoons highs will be hitting about ninety. From the pinpoint forecast center I'm meteorologist Laura about itself. 36 minutes after 5 AM this is the early edition WW offers is that the September the eleventh 2014 discs. He is the day before Friday and that is when I say happy Friday. EU has we'd love Fridays so much we celebrated for two days -- to. Give our man. People are -- people are texting mediate 77. After learning that the police official. Has now told the Associated Press he gave the and it now. Video of Ray Rice punching and knocking out coal is then fiancee. In the casino elevator and gave it to them and march or April -- and apparently last via document that many months ago in just a couple of months after the crime. And this. Suggested day after the NFL commissioner sat down with CBS news instead. Well we didn't have video ads for the video we get the video -- -- radio nobody in my organization it's in the media. Now police official says in the video. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Bounty gate karma you asks invade the bounty gate karma train has left the station and it's just a matter of time before it runs over -- Dow. Another president that does not matter if the NFL watched it or not. Ignorance is not an excuse. It tells the leader of the and a half now he's got to go that day and those as the -- was not supposed to give the video and did not have that authority. Is a debate and argument to have. But he says he did. And apparently got documentation that he did yeah the video to the NFL's. Either Roger -- a big fat liar or has no idea what's going on as the organization out. That someone on his staff except this video images have put in a drawer and not talent. You know would anybody -- -- we're here's the video and I'll just put it in the -- -- out of the realm of possibility I could see someone thinking you know what. It be best for everyone involved who PCs. And it is tucked it away opening it. It would never come up again they suspend Ray -- for two games -- -- OK and move on with their lives in. That would be that. You don't just human nature is gonna make you wanted just to compete if you of that person. In the at all yet each kind of block. And I imported away. You know maybe that's wondered how and we don't. It's will not continue that conversation I do have a double dose today of why people now. It was supposed to be a lesson in growing your own food in Waterville remain healthy eating and helping the less fortunate and steady group of fifth graders got a lesson in the harsh realities of life. They were growing. 100 yellow -- With the intent of giving them to homeless shelter and help them -- For the homeless and giving them to the school Catholic and a wonderful columns -- -- stole all 100. Onions off of the plants at their school. Plucked him locked the onions 100 of them. The teacher says she plans to turn this into a lesson about coming together when things don't go as planned it. And calls it sat -- students -- it was kind of depressed you know. Someone with steal their -- -- people who want to onions so bad they go and -- hundred. From kids trying to help couples. Would it be right in the league whoever did that you are they what. With people file. On this Thursday morning -- we call the day before Friday that he's up. Interest. Yeah we Kansas conversation in the day and is -- yeah I remember we've talked on this program many times but it's got the best burgers best wing. We talked about a lot of the best news. Well that was advertisement who's at the past. While I disagree on -- you have some -- -- Fries yeah I do it's. I don't like -- one higher than all the others necessarily but I would say he. Five guys you know they have fantastic.

Com but -- what you talent like this critical Fries it at -- -- with with the McCain thought he asked if I that the five guys man can be especially because they take. That can fuel the background process brought me to -- so here's my quite sad overload is quantity perfect. Better than quality not saying that they're not quite get pony. Right opinion is that if you had a choice yet more Fries that -- maybe not it's good -- just -- few Fries or really yet with which to go. Fewer better I -- -- and you with the best Fries are every time. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We I order and entering to I just don't feel like LeBron couples I still wanna take one from my wife one of my hand.

Poorly misinformed aren't that yes I mean it's it's going to get close to here but not enough that organized the temperature differences may be hungrier to. -- maybe at me and really I think more so that degree or -- because we'll have a little extra cloud cover over the weekend and little extra rainfall over the weekend. Suspend hi -- 94. Yesterday afternoon's. Never September that is just unacceptable. Right. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And over the weekend still some scattered downpours that Saturday -- -- -- area of disturbed weather near the Bahamas Mohamed now is there any chance that comes this way you know -- -- drifting west at all models I'm looking -- keep that pretty disorganized just kind of an area tropical moisture it's definitely going to bring some rain to Florida the Florida Keys felt Florida over the weekend.

Speed gas which not tricycle or something she was on the motorized shopping cards. Steve it's the police say they got a call of reportable woman riding a Wal-Mart shopping cart. In Muskegon county. And on the -- like yeah. It is right down the street she maybe two miles from the Wal-Mart before the average life that it.

It's 600 dollars in clothing in the basket in the front of the motorized -- and that they say she did not pay for the program what's with the close at -- -- -- those. My question. You've got six dollars worth of clothes which I mean that's got to be a pretty significant about -- right here at 12100 dollar wheelchair right and here in the end of motorized -- and you're going to about a mile and a half an hour or whatever he just.

It is so it's -- yet the small and then they seem to like dumping and a whole another batch in with all others is and it's a whole other time for sports now your WW. Well good morning everybody despite NFL commissioner Roger Goodell saying he'd never seen the Ray Rice elevator footage until Monday it will enforcement official says that he sent a video to an NFL executive. Five months ago. The person played the Associated Press -- 122 voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming that the video ride. The league now says that former FBI director Robert Mueller will conduct a probe into how the NFL handled the evidence. Cleveland running back Ben Tate has been ruled out of Sunday's contest but doesn't mean that the saints have any easier time dealing with the browns rushing attack. Coach Sean Payton on rookie Terrence west kind of housing foods Cleveland's third round draft choice. I think he's got very good vision he's someone that obviously was very productive and college. Obviously someone who's gonna play a significant role in this game. Elsewhere around the NFL Panthers quarterback Cam Newton returned to practice throwing the football while wearing a big flak jacket to protect his injured ribs. Coach Ron -- expects -- to start against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. After he missed the season opener at Tampa today. Outside linebacker Jonathan Abraham has left the Arizona Cardinals and is considering retiring after sixteen years in the NFL. But 36 year old sustained a concussion in Monday night's victory over San Diego. Abraham ranked ninth in the NFL's career sack list with 133. And ask. -- she's leading receiver Trayvon Burrell missed the tigers' first couple of practices of the week after suffering an injury to his forehead from a car accident. Coach less miles says it won't keep -- all the field on Saturday though. It's a quarter of distraction I don't -- great escape with more on tenth ranked LSU taking on ULM here's the big chief. LSU coach less mouse thinks one strip tease tigers defense. Is their linebackers including the speed of the line backing core. I think it's a great opportunity to you know give me an offense.

LSU look to improve to 30 Saturday night as they in obtain the -- and a Monroe Deke Bellavia WW real sports and just be an Oscar for historians has been found not guilty of premeditated murder and not guilty.

I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sports sides of the story is not off the hook yet but we'll see -- guilty on the two biggest possible charges against him -- down. The -- six point favorite in Cleveland that about right. I think that's a fair assessment just because beer. Going up against the Cleveland Browns team that's under new coach still have a lot of questions surrounding them but a defense that is that we formidable and I think it offensive line that's one of the most under rated in the NFL. Steve -- back with more sports in fifteen minutes. But foreigners five guys -- stop Brothers don't chase and he wants emigrants seafood. Arby's I got more tech sent out to do with on the best price of folks -- -- on our web says. At WWL not a mom -- think.
