Test Text1 underline Time now for our big board. A team of insiders standing by for more. We got Dan Abrams here for the first story and it's all about Steven Avery. Some dramatic new allegations about this man convicted of murder at the center of the true crime series "Making a murderer" speaking out to "In touch" magazine as he prepares for an appeal arguing the lawyers who came to his aid may be responsible for landing him in jail. Take a look. They didn't do their job. You know, they were looking out for the state and just like most lawyers do they look out for the state instead of for their client. You know if they would do more investigating on the case, they would find all of this stuff. Everything is there. They did their job. I wouldn't be here. Now, Dan, that is grounds for an appeal if he can prove it. Except it's not true. He actually had really good representation. I think he's been following or getting advice from someone about Adnan Ziad, the serial defendant who had trouble with his lawyers. Steven Avery had strong lawyers who represented him vigorously and they couldn't win the case. But for him to blame them now I think is a mistake and his lawyers are sort of issuing a statement to us sort of sadly saying that they think he's mistaken but they can understand considering that he's been falsely imprisoned. In another portion of that in "In touch," he said once the truth comes out I think they'll regret what they all said about me. He's 1,000% confident he'll be released so how likely -- I don't think I need to ask this, it's probably not happening. Not likely. His new lawyer is a terrific lawyer named Kathleen Zellner and hinting she has new evidence that's going to release him and it sounds like that's empowering and exciting Steven Avery but from my perspective, I think it's very unlikely Steven Avery will be released in connection with this case. All right, all right, thank you, dang. Switching gears now, well, actually first let me tell you the entire interview with Steven Avery is in "In touch" magazine on newsstands now and move on to this other case raising questions about restaurant responsibility. A waiter allegedly server a diner food that he already told him he was allergic to sends that diner into cardiac arrest. The waiter could now face charges for it. We have Rebecca Jarvis with us to talk about it. Rebecca, this is the first case of its kind in Canada. What happened and what kind of charges could the waiter face. This is unbelievable, Lara. Think about this, imagine this, you go into a restaurant for a nice meal. You tell your waiter not once but twice you have a life-threatening allergy to seafood. That's what happened that cording to this diner at LE tapageur. He told the waiter right off the bat he had a seafood allergy and when he ordered he told the waiter again but still seafood showed up on his plate. The problem is he didn't know it. He ate the food and went into cardiac arrest. Ended up in the hospital for five case and now looks like this waiter could face some criminal negligence charges. That's exactly what they're talking about in Canada right now. The authorities are pushing for that. Here's what the chef and owner said, quote, nobody wants to make somebody feel uncomfortable in their restaurant. But from a legal stdpoint we may have to take drastic measures to protect ourselves so what kind of measures will they have to make? The restaurant industry, you're already seeing this. You sit down at a restaurant nowadays. A lot of the time you will be asked right off the bat what kind of allergies. What are the food allergies of everyone at this table and you see it on packaging. When you open up a box of chips, in the back a lot of times this says this was prepared in a facility that includes nuts. A lot of businesses are worried about this and this especially if it goes to trial will be a bigger concern for businesses going forward. I think every restaurant in New York asks the question. He was arrested? Still, you can understand why the restaurant might get sued, et cetera. But you would hope that if he was arrested for this, that the authorities believe there was some sort of intentional conduct. Meaning I would think that the authorities believe that he did it on purpose in some way, shape or form. Just criminal negligence meaning that he effectively made a reckless mistake or whatever, didn't listen, et cetera, he gets arrested for that and charged. That seems like a real reach. Just real quickly, one of your other major jobs, you own restaurants. How do you protect yourself. You have to be vigilant. Anyone that's been there before, you have notes as to what they're allergic to in your system so you remember it. But if they haven't been there before you have to ask. Is part of your waiter's training you must ask do you have any food allergies when presenting the menu you. Want to ask because, remember, you're talking about anything that could touch the food. Here you may have served him something he was specifically allergic to but also have concerns about other items around the food that can be allergy issues, as well. All right, Dan, thanks very much. On now to Tim Tebow. He's trying again not on the football field but baseball field looking to play in the major league, of course, he's been here many times on "Gma," as well. Want to bring in Eduardo Perez now with ESPN. So what is this, Eduardo? Does he have a real shot? It's as big of a shot as being in the same swimming pool as Michael Phelps and Katie ledecky. Think about this and I'm not just talking about being in the semifinal, I'm talking about being in the finals against those guy, not in the medal stand. This is a very difficult task. Everybody thinks major league, but you then have to go all the way to the minor leagues, instructional league, even winter baseball. That's as much baseball as he has to do, as a matter of fact I called one of the teams in Puerto Rico and they were excited. They said bring him on. We'll take him and give him a tryout. They even extended a letter to him. How interested a lot of teams are with Tim Tebow. You see the contract signed by Frankie Higgenbotham their general manager. Come and join us in our fall practice in October. Why not take a trip to paradise. In the meantime, it's so difficult to do to play against the elite. Think about what Malcolm said in "Outliers." 10,000 reps, not 10,000 swings in a cage but game time, fly ball, ground ball, a lot of stuff. I want to point out way back when, well, not that far back, Bo Jackson, deion sanders, they managed to cross over and do both at the same time. Are we living in a different world now, though? ? We're living in a different world but at the same time, you said the key word. They were doing it at the same time. They were -- they both played -- one played at Florida state, one played at Auburn. They never stopped playing. Tim Tebow, 1 years removed. I could tell you I could still shoot and do layups right now. We're talking about a hamstring being pulled. We will be watching, thanks to you all very much.
