An all New England Super Bowl? The Rams & Patriots connection to Connecticut

The Rams and Patriots will face off in the Super Bowl and many will make the connection between their first Super Bowl meeting in 2002. However, both franchises are connected in another way. At one time both strongly considered moving to Hartford, Connecticut. The Patriots did agree to move which we covered on another podcast which is below and you will want to check it out. On this episode we highlight the Rams considering to move to Connecticut in 1994 and could you imagine this Super Bowl being the Hartford Rams vs. the New England Patriots? I talk about the relocation plans and which Connecticut actor was the head of a group that wanted the NFL in his home state.

Looking back at New England Patriots move to Connecticut 20 years later

 

Twenty years ago on November 18, 1998 the Robert Kraft announced that the New England Patriots would be moving to Hartford Connecticut for the 2001 season. The Project based in downtown Hartford would be over a billion dollars with the centerpiece being a new state-of-the-art 61,000 seat stadium. Despite the generous offer, the Patriots would ultimately stat in Foxborough and the rest is history.

What happened? On this episode I am creating a new segment where I look at team’s moving and why it happened.

However, there’s a third party that never gets mentioned which I’ll reveal and exclusive audio from Robert Kraft on why the Patriots didn’t move to Connecticut’s Capital.

The NFL’s biggest kid will now host a Kid’s show

Gronk will be the face of Nick’s newest show, Crashletes, where he will be introducing clips of sports action. The move, which is also giving NFL MVP Cam Newton his own show, comes from the Nickelodeon Network’s attempt to broaden and mix it’s offerings.  The move is prompted by the increased competition and wider variety of choices for children’s programming.

One thing is certain, Gronk will bring his fun loving and boundless youth energy into a new platform for NFL players.
