  • RAISING ARIZONA FOR A DOMED STADIUM FOR BILL BIDWILL?

         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).
