Arizona Cardinals team president Michael Bidwill was on the radio last week. It was to preview the tailgate party the team hosted last week.
He talked about a variety of talks, the first of which was about the respect the Cardinals got from the league in the prime time and nationally televised games.
When asked about the Pro Bowl, he once again made it a point to criticize Glendale, saying that the city is not a partner in the events. He praised Phoenix, Tempe and Scottsdale.
Related to the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl are the upgrades coming. Bidwill did say that the events were the reason for doing those upgrades now all at once. The team doing about $20 million in upgrades.
Bidwill was asked about Daryl Washington and his issues with the law. He said that he expects that Washington will not have any more issues.
He praised the work of general manager Steve Keim and also discussed his own role in the draft process. He said the draft board is almost set. NFL Network will have a camera in their war room, so fans will be able to get a sneak peek into the draft.
He said that expectations for the season are high. "There's a great opportunity for us to be a historic first," he said about the chance to play in their own stadium for the Super Bowl.
