NEW YORK (AP) -NFL commissioner Roger Goodell calls his meeting with Pittsburgh Steelers chairman Dan Rooney and his four brothers about the franchise's ownership situation ``productive.''
They met for 2 1/2 hours at league headquarters Tuesday. They discussed NFL rules that restrict owners' involvement in gambling enterprises and require that one person own at least 30 percent of the team.
Several brothers own shares of racetracks that now offer casino gaming. Each brother owns just 16 percent of the team.
Dan Rooney and son Art Rooney II, the team president, are attempting to buy enough shares to be the primary owners.
Goodell says he expects the situation will be resolved soon but has not set a deadline.
