PATS MAY BE BETTER OFF RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE SAYS FINNERAN

     MA House Ways and Means Committee Chair Thomas Finneran said
with the window of opportunity "rapidly closing" on a privately
financed domed stadium in Boston, the Pats best chance for a new
stadium may be in Foxboro, according to the BOSTON HERALD.  Phil
Primack notes the "Catch-22" faced by megaplex supporters in that
private financing is not likely until the megaplex bill is
passed.  But a stadium won't be part of the bill unless there is
private financing "pledged" to a stadium.  Finneran added a bill
will be reported by the Ways and Means Committee Friday, but it
may "be open" on the issue of a location (BOSTON HERALD, 10/10).
