Published August 10, 1995
NJ-resident Michael Bandler sued the Devils Wednesday saying that he has risked bodily injury and endured snowy nights and lousy teams all to be a Devils fan. He is alleging the team violated the consumer fraud act when it denied him postseason tickets for the past two years. Bandler: "I watched them lose for 10 or 12 years, and then they started winning and things were looking good, and I got left out" (Thomas Zambito, Bergen RECORD, 8/10)....Dodger players are being limited to six tickets for tonight's Cardinals game due to the increased demand for tickets when Hideo Nomo pitches. The Dodgers average attendance is 36,396, but 41,047 when Nomo pitches (Chris Baker, L.A. TIMES, 8/10)....Boston Neurologist Edison K. Miyawaki bought ownership shares in the Bengals from Bengals Chair Austin E. Knowlton. It is the first time someone from outside the state of Ohio has owned part of the team. Miyawaki said he has no intentions of trying to move the team. (AP/Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 8/10).
