STATE OF THE STADIUM: FOXBORO STADIUM

     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.  Today,
THE SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY continues its stadium profiles with
Foxboro Stadium.
