Published October 25, 1994
There has been much discussion in Boston over the past year about a new facility for the Patriots. A year ago, Paul Tagliabue declared Foxboro Stadium was unsuitable as a long-term home for the team. However Robert Kraft, owner of the team and Foxboro Stadium, is now enjoying a profitable situation in New England. Earlier this month, Tagliabue said the league could work to make the stadium a viable facilty and noted the importance of keeping a team in the New England region.
