Today marks the 25th anniversary of Robert Kraft buying the Patriots.
At the time, Kraft paid a then-NFL record $175 million to purchase the team and keep it in the Boston area. It was a bold move for Kraft, considering the team had been struggling during the previous decade and was playing in an antiquated stadium.
Kraft, a 23-year season ticket-holder before buying the team, not only prevented the team from going to St. Louis, but has been the steward of a team that’s won 18 division titles, nine conference crowns and five Super Bowl championships.
During Kraft’s 25 seasons, the Patriots have qualified for the playoffs 20 times, which is more than double what the franchise had accomplished in its first 34 seasons.
To mark the anniversary, we reached out to some people in the NFL and Patriots community to get their thoughts on the occasion.
