Shut Up Carl.

Stupid question. Why not put it right next to where the current stadium is?Everett, Revere and Lynn are non-starters for a stadium. Anything that requires access via Rt. 1 or Rt. 1A through that area is a pain to reach from the north much less the south. That's a key reason that the proposed Amazon HQ2 at Suffolk Downs has almost no chance of winning. The Somerville proposal to place the HQ at 4 consecutive Orange Line stations (essentially making the subway the campus shuttle) was probably more interesting because of its uniqueness.
Living in Franklin, Foxboro is almost perfect. I remember waking up at my grandparents house in Franklin to the sound of the bells from Dean College. We went a number of times to see the ill-fated New England Tea Men (not really named because of the Tea Party but because they were owned by the Lipton Tea Company) play before about 8,000 at Schaefer/Sullivan/Foxboro Stadium. When you don't have many fans it's easy in/easy out.
