The negotiations between Victor Kiam, owner of the New England Patriots, and Florida businessman Malcolm Glazer were off and then on again yesterday.After minority owner Fran Murray said that the two sides "would not be able to make a deal," a source familiar with the talks said that Glazer still was willing to have more discussions with Kiam about buying the financially troubled team.The problem is that the Patriots are in such bad shape that Glazer -- who heads one of three ownership groups seeking a Baltimore NFL franchise -- has to decide whether his desire to obtain an NFL team overrides financial considerations.

They want stadiums that produce a lot of revenue with such bells and whistles as sky boxes and club seats.

FOXBORO, Mass. -- The New England Patriots will send a message to the National Football League tonight: SOS.When they play the Washington Redskins in their second exhibition game at Foxboro Stadium, the majority of the seats will be empty.Their two home exhibition games last year drew 23,768 for the Cincinnati Bengals and 24,196 for the Atlanta Falcons.That was before the team crashed to 1-15 last year and was struck by the Lisa Olson incident. The team has lost 22 of its past 23 games, including five exhibition games.
