     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).
