PATRIOTS ON THE MOVE?
Published August 1, 1996
ESPN's Bob Ley reports that Patriots Owner Robert Kraft has said he cannot compete financially at Foxboro Stadium and will "relocate within New England or sell the team" if a new stadium deal is not worked out. Kraft: "We don't want to threaten anything, we're not going to threaten because if we don't solve the problem, we'll put the team up for sale. But something's going to have to happen in the not-to-distant future." Kraft said he would be willing to privately finance a new $180M Boston facility if the city and state provide infrastructure ("SportsCenter," 7/31).
