    hi Darren,
    it was after home games, we were able to watch Coach post game presser on the video boards. Now the past three games, no coverage, will the stadium go back to showing the post game interview ?

    I will ask. That’s out of my jurisdiction.

    Absolutely AMAZING. It just goes to show how ignorant some people can be, ya know? When they played in that concrete oven called Sun Devil Stadium and the team was lousy every year, it was really pathetic to see how few people showed up for those games. But no wonder, right? Who was gonna sit out there for 3 hours in that heat to watch lousy football. So, the perception became that the Cards had no real fan base and it was a bad city for an NFL team.

    But, gee, isn’t it funny what happens when there was an awesome and comfortable place to watch the games AND the team started winning games?? Instant sell-outs and a fan base that is as dedicated as any in the NFL. That place is a sea of red and white EVERY WEEK and the place just rocks. No more full stadiums filled with more Cowboys or Bears or Broncos fans than Cardinals fans. It just pisses me off that so many of the afore-mentioned jack-asses don’t see any of that and they still think the Cardinals are a joke, have no home-field advantage. A lot of them probably don’t even realize there’s been a new stadium – only the BEST facility in the world – out here.

    Scott H – my family moved to the Valley in the spring of 2002. We had lived two years in Boston, before that six years in Kansas City and a year in Dallas. Three of the most NFL crazy fan bases in the league, no way to get season tix, just day of game mostly available.
    One of the first things I did was to call the Cardinals to see if there were any season tickets available..I was told yes there were plenty of tickets where did I want to sit !
    Spent four season in Sec 9 at Sun Devil. Early season games were tough to sit thru. Our row would keep looking back over our shoulder watching the shadow from the press box move down towards our seats to cool us off.
    Flash forward to UoP, where my son and I have not missed a game there in these seven years. Very Proud to say that I am a Cardinal Fan !
    Hope that EVERY Cardinal fan is there this week, sure don’t want to see any SF gear walking around…it’s our nest and we need to protect it !
