In its Friday editions, the Business Journal of Phoenix reported that Cardinals Owner Bill Bidwill "was not pleased with his current stadium and that he wants" a new dome built that measures up to NFL standards. Bidwill: "Sun Devil Stadium is a very good college football stadium. It has great view sights. But as these new buildings come on line, it isn't up to the standards people expect." Cardinals Sec./Counsel Thomas Guilfoil noted that Bidwill was promised a new stadium when he moved to Phoenix and did not rule out a possible move: "If the Rams and the Raiders move, there will be an opening in the biggest market in the country. I guess it won't stay open for long." A proposed MLB expansion team in Phoenix is expected to move into a planned $278M downtown domed stadium. Legislation for that stadium includes a provision that "specifically excludes football." The Cardinals have a 10-year lease at Sun Devil Stadium (Jim Thomas, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 11/19).
