PHILADELPHIA — Landon Collins decided shortly before Sunday’s game against the Eagles that he would take a knee during the national anthem to protest critical remarks President Donald Trump made against NFL players protesting the anthem during a speech Friday in Alabama. Once the Giants’ All Pro safety actually started to kneel down, he was overcome with emotion. “It hurt,” Collins said after a 27-24 loss at Lincoln Financial Field. “I was about to break down in tears. I love this country.
To understand how treacherous the Giants’ situation has become, you need look no further than the historical challenge they face. At 0-3 after a stunning 27-24 loss to the Eagles, on a 61-yard field goal with no time left, there is little chance the Giants will punch a ticket to the playoffs. Consider: Since the league expanded the postseason format to 12 teams, only three were 0-3 and made it to January. The last to do it: the 1998 Bills.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith rejected President Donald Trump’s criticism of the NFL during a speech he made Friday night in Alabama. Appearing at a rally for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Luther Strange, Trump said NFL owners should fire any players who protest during the national anthem and that fans should walk out of games in which players demonstrate against the anthem.
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".
