Two weeks ago he unwittingly sided with a minority that blocked a proposed change in league voting procedures from three-fourths to a two-thirds minimum count.

And if the policy doesn't change by June 1996, remember Huizenga must sell the Dolphins" ("SportsCenter," 11/15). ....Last night on WJR-Radio in Detroit, MICHAEL MOORER told host Frank Beckman that he will be retiring (WJR, 11/15)....
