FOXBORO'S BLACKOUT ADDS TO NEW PATS' STADIUM ARGUMENTS
Published January 13, 1997
An "inexpensive line fuse" burned out during play of the AFC Championship game yesterday, and play was suspended for eleven minutes due to darkness, according to Kevin Paul Dupont of the BOSTON GLOBE. The power outage "could only add fuel" to Patriots Owner Robert Kraft's bid for a new stadium (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/13). Kraft, on the incident: "You're not thinking that we set this up to happen this way?" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 1/12). NBC's Greg Gumbel noted Kraft's stadium pursuit during the delay: "What has been Bob Kraft's big move here in New England? He wants a new stadium for these Patriots. What better argument could he have?" NBC's Cris Collinsworth: "You don't suppose he turned the lights out do you?" ("NFL on NBC," NBC, 1/12).
