BUSINESSMAN Victor Kiam is frequently pictured in a commercial talking about Remington shavers. In the commercial, Kiam says of his product: "I was so impressed, I bought the company!"With Kiam's latest on-air exposure, many men and women probably hope he buys the farm.Kiam, owner of the New England Patriots, inserted his foot and chewed vigorously . . . when he called a woman sports writer a "bitch" after she gave him the brushoff in the Patriots' locker room following the Pats' loss to Cincinnati.

The headlines are hard to miss and easy to smirk at. The Rocky Mountain News contributed "Patriots are Brady's bunch, for now." The Providence Journal-Bulletin offered "Brady Comes in for Bunch of Praise." The Worcester (Mass.) Telegram & Gazette told readers "Brady has got a bunch more responsibility." And the Boston Herald said simply "Pats Brady's bunch." So it was with some degree of trepidation that Kamon Simpson of The Gazette of Colorado Springs, Colo., began a story about New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady with the words of the famed TV sitcom: "Here's the story of a man named Brady."

Stan Gelbaugh, who led his World League of American Football team to the league's inaugural championship and then gave up on football, will start the next Phoenix Cardinals game, coach Joe Bugel said yesterday.Bugel said Gelbaugh earned the promotion by producing the type of big plays the woefully impotent Cardinals have needed in a 4-7 season.Gelbaugh, 28, said that except for the WLAF, the start would be his first since his college days at Maryland.Even there, he had to wait his turn to start behind Boomer Esiason, now with Cincinnati, and Frank Reich, No. 2 at Buffalo.

CHICAGO -- The NFL owners solved their Baltimore-Cleveland problem yesterday, but the way they did it may cause the league headaches in the future.By passing a resolution guaranteeing Cleveland a team by 1999, by letting Art Modell move without determining whether he passed the league guidelines and by lending Cleveland up to $48 million, the NFL may have set precedents that could come back to haunt the league.Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, who's always quick to spot a conspiracy against him by the league, made that point yesterday.

PHOENIX -- Take your pick: St. Louis either has outmaneuvered Baltimore in the NFL expansion derby or has taken a step toward a financial quagmire that will hurt the St. Louis effort.The debate was taking place at the NFL's annual March meetings yesterday in the wake of James Busch Orthwein's decision to offer to buy Victor Kiam's 51 percent majority interest in the New England Patriots.Orthwein, a major stockholder in Anheuser-Busch Companies and the money man behind St. Louis' expansion drive, said he wants to own the team on an interim basis before he sells the Patriots and returns to the St. Louis effort.

Sacramento, California. AND SO, gathering under the rallying cry of the 1960s -- if you aren't part of the solution, you're part of the problem -- the National Football League has declared itself on the matter of social justice.Yes, under the direction of Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, who is under the direction, of course, of 26 owners, the league has announced it's going to take the 1993 Super Bowl away from Phoenix if the state of Arizona doesn't do something about Election Day's narrow defeat of a measure in that state to honor Martin Luther King with a paid holiday on his birthday.

Oil and water. Fire and rain. Women in men's locker rooms?Some things just don't mix.The case of the New England Patriots players accused of exposing themselves to a female sportswriter in their locker room -- and team owner Victor Kiam defending them by saying they can "wiggle their waggles in front of her face as far as I'm concerned" -- has become as much a part of the current sports chatter as the down-to-the-wire American League eastern division race."The...

Let's go back to the scene of the crime: the New England Patriots locker room. Like all NFL locker rooms, it is where the players undress, shower, dress, gossip, play cards, stretch, read the paper, exchange head butts, meet with the coach, emit the occasional primal scream and also where they can be interviewed by sportswriters and their electronic-media brethren. The place smells of salve and sweat and laundry baskets overflowing with jockstraps. You get used to the atmosphere, but no one would ever confuse a locker room with, say, the Tulerie Gardens.

Losing Malcolm Glazer and his two sons to the New England Patriots, if it plays out that way, would be another setback -- but not fatal -- to Baltimore's pursuit of a National Football League franchise.The Glazers have mountains of money and are among three groups wanting to represent this city in a bid to see which one is given the right to spend about $135 million for a team. If the Glazers forsake their quest in Baltimore and buy the financially strapped Patriots, it would be the second time in eight months that a leading contender interested in returning pro football here had defected to another location.

BOSTON - The clock is ticking on Victor Kiam, and when it reaches the magic number, there will be an explosion heard across the National Football League.As it stands, Kiam, on the day he observes his third year as owner of the New England Patriots -- Oct. 10, 1991 -- will lose control of the football team, unless. . ."The league has been trying for weeks to help Kiam out of this mess and it hasn't had any luck," one top NFL source says. "They are still working at trying to get him the money, but as it is, if Kiam had to come up with it today to cover, he couldn't do it."

Scoreboard ProblemsI have attended all 11 Bullets games in the Baltimore Arena over the past three years. Mostly, I Have Found The Games Entertaining And Been Surprised How Well Our Former Team has done in its original home.However, why has the $500,000 scoreboard we paid for four years ago not worked at Bullets games?The scoreboard was inoperative in two of the four games this season. It was downright disruptive in the Indiana Pacers game Jan. 25 to the point I was surprised the referee did not simply declare unplayable conditions and call the game off. It was turned off at game time March 22, and the game went on using the auxiliary scoreboards, which only give the game time and the score.

Now Victor Kiam has made the disturbing disclosure he is coming to Baltimore, at the behest of a friend, on an inspection tour to look us over as a possible location for the New England Patriots. Moving the team would happen only if the great commonwealth of Massachusetts or the city of Boston failed to produce a new stadium for a franchise Kiam personally trashed.Baltimore is, oh, so eager for a return to the National Football League, but being asked to accept Kiam would cancel out any conceivable advantages.
