Super Bowl teams give Trump silent treatment (Reuters)

By Steve Keating HOUSTON (Reuters) – While much of the world is talking about U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive orders, including travel restrictions on seven Muslim-majority nations, players and coaches at the Super Bowl remain silent. Movie and television stars, business tycoons and politicians have all expressed concern over President Trump’s controversial policies but members of the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, who will clash in the National Football League’s championship game on Sunday, dodged questions with the same skill they slip tackles. Patriots coach Bill Belichick was willing to answer a question about his underwear habits but refused to talk politics.
