PATRIOTS ADVERSARY FINNERAN OFFERS REVISED STADIUM BILL

          In an "unexpected turn of events," MA House Speaker
     Thomas Finneran Friday unveiled a revised bill for helping
     the Patriots rebuild Foxboro Stadium that calls for the
     state to spend $52M to improve infrastructure around the
     facility in return for $2M in annual parking fees, according
     to Tina Cassidy of the BOSTON GLOBE.  Finneran, on Patriots
     Owner Robert Kraft: "He can take it or leave it."  But in
     the revised bill, a plan for the state to pay Kraft $20M for
     land surrounding the stadium was eliminated.  The MA House
     could vote on the plan this week.  The team said it would
     review the bill before commenting (BOSTON GLOBE, 11/15).
