Matthew Stafford is the most-sacked quarterback in the National Football League, and that's bad for business right now and in the future. The New Orleans Saints sacked him five times during Sunday's wildly demented 52-38 loss, bringing his season total to 23 in six games. He's on pace to be sacked 61 times this season. At that pace, the odds of him surviving the season without major injury are very slim.
The Detroit Tigers are likely to enter 2018 with between $141 million and nearly $157 million committed to player salaries — a payroll decrease of up to 30 percent versus this past season's $200 million in roster spending. The decline could be even sharper if more veteran talent is shed this off-season as part of the team's pivot to rebuilding via less costly, younger talent developed in-house.
Tom Gores and Dan Gilbert have had their list of potential pro soccer team names reduced by one. They have been registering names for a possible Major League Soccer expansion team they're seeking and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday informed Gores' Palace Sports & Entertainment LLC that its July 6 application for "Detroit City Soccer Club" has been rejected because the name is too similar to the semi-pro Detroit City Football Club that plays in Hamtramck.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
