Leave Patriots in New England

It's your call

March 21, 1991

Sorry Victor, but it wasn't even a close shave.

Asked if they would rather lure the Patriots of Remington owner Victor Kiam or seek an NFL expansion franchise, respondents sided with an expansion team by more than a 2-to-1 margin.

Sixty-eight percent (353 of 520) of Evening Sun readers and other respondents to "It's Your Call" said they would prefer that Baltimore pursue a brand new team. Kiam, unhappy in New England and supposedly to meet with a Baltimore businessman to discuss moving the Patriots here, only gained 32 percent (167) of the vote.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
