NFL-Goodell building bridges to Mexico, silent on Trump (Reuters)

By Steve Keating HOUSTON, Feb 1 (Reuters) – NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reaffirmed the league’s goal of building bridges, not walls in announcing a Mexico City game next season but steered clear of taking a stand on President Donald Trump’s immigration policy. At his annual state of league address on Wednesday, Goodell danced around questions about Trump’s temporary travel ban on citizens from seven mainly Muslim countries, saying Sunday’s Super Bowl is an event that brings the world together not pull it apart. “We are aware of the conversations that are going on and as commissioner of the NFL I am singularly focused on the Super Bowl,” said Goodell.
