MASS. GOVERNOR "NOT WILD" ABOUT BUYING FOXBORO STADIUM

     MA Gov. William Weld said that he wants to help the
Patriots, but he is not "enthusiastic about a proposal under
which the state would buy Foxboro Stadium, fix it up and lease it
back to the team."  Weld: "I'm not real wild about that.  It's
pretty expensive. But, I am for my part, willing to help the
Patriots out."  Patriots Owners Robert Kraft floated his new
proposal on Wednesday, and continued to call on state help to
enable him to field a competitive team year after year
(Kindleberger & Wong, BOSTON GLOBE, 12/16).
