         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).
