Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Nets owner Joe Tsai place great bets on North America’s oldest and often-forgotten team sport

Robert Kraft is best known for his ownership of the New England Patriots. However, you won’t get as much money as him if you put all your eggs in one basket. Kraft is a magnate in the Boston sports scene and owns part of several teams in various leagues in the area. His latest venture will raise some eyebrows, especially as many people may not know that there is a national league for this small sport. Still, Kraft isn’t the only billionaire willing to pour money into the Premier Lacrosse League.

That legacy has done little to popularize the game over the years, but after years of chaos and unease, a stable league has finally emerged.
