Why change his name?

PROMO FOUND ONLINE: John Hancock name change?

I found this promo headline on a Chicago Tribune newsletter, and
it caught my attention. Why would they change John Hancock's name?

Then I clicked on the link and found this headline: John Hancock Center
could change owners — and names.

Now, THAT makes sense.

FROM A SPORTS STORY: Ndamukong Suh is a human wrecking ball but 
Miami has yet to find someone to compliment him on the defensive line. 

It's complement, not compliment

FROM ANOTHER SPORTS STORY: Riddick gets less than 160 touches.

No, Riddick gets FEWER than 160 touches.

They will sight

FOUND ONLINE: Many people may be shocked to see Thomas so low on this list. They will sight his 24 touchdowns in two seasons while under then offensive coordinator Adam Gase in Denver.

The writer obviously meant cite, not sight.

ALSO FOUND ONLINE: The Miami Dolphins were a team that surprised a lot of people last season, earning one of the AFC’s Wild Card spot.

We can tighten this.
