Let's get the bad news out of the way first for Giants fans: Dylan Shiel has left open the possibility of leaving the club. But there is a silver lining. He cannot bear the thought of doing so without having won a premiership. On the eve of becoming the sixth Giant to reach 100 games for the club, memories of Greater Western Sydney's dark early days still linger for Shiel. The homesickness, the weekly hammerings and the doubts whether the side would ever be any good.
If Sydney held a round-by-round best and fairest count, there is a strong chance there would be an unfamiliar face near the top of the leaderboard now. He is not a game-changer like Lance Franklin, nor does he have the reputation of a Josh Kennedy, Dan Hannebery or Luke Parker but, in a trying season for the Swans, Jake Lloyd is one man who cannot be blamed for their tumble down the ladder.
Sydney midfielder Zak Jones has apologised to his teammates for getting suspended and missing a key match in the Swans' quest to make the finals. Swans leaders were upset with Jones after he was rubbed out of the club's crucial clash with Essendon for an off-the-ball incident. Their response to his poor discipline gives an indication of how highly they rate Jones, who in the past 12 months has cemented himself as a first-choice senior player.
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".
