Plenty of theories being tossed around for why the Giants offense has been so terrible to start the 2017 season. "Saw Eli (Manning) get knocked down," Dave Tollefson wrote on Twitter Monday night, "not one o-lineman helped him up. That's a real problem." Tollefson's obversation comes as Big Blue has staggered out of the gate and fell to 0-2 with Monday night's 24-10 loss to the Lions at MetLife Stadium.
Bill Simmons went old school to defend Jemele Hill. The Sports Guy used a Friday mailbag column (remember those?) on his "The Ringer" website to address the latest controversy to engulf his former employer. Simmons said he was not bothered by the fact that Hill was not suspended by the network after calling Donald Trump a white supremacist in a tweet. The Ringer's founder, who had an ugly divorce from the World Wide Leader in 2015, applauded Hill for "how brilliantly Jemele checkmated her bosses."
Roger Goodell's long-term future as NFL commissioner could be in doubt thanks to Jerry Jones. ESPN reported Sunday morning that the Cowboys owner has helped stall contract negotiations between the league's compensation committee and Goodell. "If not for Jerry, this deal would be done," a person familiar with the negotiations told ESPN this weekend. The NFL's compensation committee is made up of six people, but the ESPN report labeled Jones the "unofficial seventh member."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
