The Arizona Cardinals are catching heat for a tweet that was supportive of President Trump’s recent Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. It turns out Cardinals President Michael Bidwill attended high school with Kavanaugh.
“I’ve known him for more than 37 years.”

Bidwill showed his public support for his friend and SCOTUS nominee from the Cardinals Twitter account. That didn’t sit well with the good folks on Twitter.
A professional sports team is backing a political appointment but votes to deny players the right to exercise their social and political voices. Gross.

Hey remember when owners were adamant that politics should be kept out of the NFL? Or does that only count when black players do it?

Keep your sports and politics on ESPN where it belongs.
