    What benefit does the Cardinals get?

    So many other options. Must be a reason.

    I'm thinking Mr Bidwill just wants to help.

    The head coach can stay, the niners can take our coaches back to san fran with them.

    I am guessing they get more money than letting fans in. What a royal screwjob by the team. Hey we aren't gonna let any fans in (where there was no spread) but lets let a whole other NFL team (and team spread of course has all happened outside of game day) set up shop - a division rival no less.

    So yeah, if I had to guess, Michael is channeling his daddy on this decision.

    It's for the good of the NFL. Imagine the blowback if Cardinals refused. I can't even imagine the Cards hesitated in agreeing. Until a decision is made about practice, I would assume the 9ers will use some other facility for practice and meetings.

    We play them on Saturday as part of triple header. Im guessing Bidwell got another prime time slot out of NFL for helping them out.

    Wouldn't that be a network decision? The NCAA is running out of matchups for Saturday broadcasts so maybe that was a network choice.

    There's 31 other teams. I have grown tired of the "its for the common good" while I watch businesses close all around me. Sorry, that line is no longer of any effect on me. There's other ways to go about things aside from giving a division opponent aid when there are 31 other places they could find to play PLUS who knows how many college stadiums or other empty stadiums that could be options.

    Which of the other 31 ( actually 30 ) would be a better choice? The NFL is a corporation and the teams are franchises so the greater good ( which is not the term I used ) seems appropriate and fair. AZ is a 2 hour flight away from SF.

    The Cardinals should pull a Bilichick and spy on the ‘49’ers practice

    I was kind of surprised they didn't just make the Niners play road games for their home weeks. Would have made the most sense to me. As it is playing in AZ is no different than playing a road game for them unless they are trying to appease the Niner fans.
