    TARKENTON "lambasted" the NFL and Vikings President ROGER
    HEADRICK over a perceived lack of attention to Tarkenton's
    passing records, which are beginning to fall to the Dolphins' Dan
    Marino.  Tarkenton:  "These records are similar to Hank Aaron
    breaking Babe Ruth's home run record, yet you know how many calls
    I've gotten from the NFL about this?  Zero.  None. Zilch."
    Tarkenton referred to Headrick, a former Pillsbury exec, as "the
    Pillsbury Doughboy" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 10/4)....DENNY
    TREASE has been named Dir of Communications and Community
