Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill exhibited ‘sexist,’ ‘racially charged’ behavior, former employees say

A complaint against Arizona Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill filed in April that alleges sexist and racist behavior has come to light.

Terry McDonough, the team’s former vice president of player personnel, filed the complaint this year, stating that the owner and team showed “gross misconduct, including discrimination and harassment, among other allegations,” according to ESPN.

The complaint says Bidwill berated employees in public and caused some former employees to seek treatment for their mental health, depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress after working for the team.

“We have more to do and, as I have said to every member of the Cardinals organization, that includes my own work to grow and improve as a leader,” Bidwill said in a statement.

Bidwill took over control of the team when his father, Bill, died in 2019. The Bidwills have owned the team for three generations.
