Going into the final round of the 2017 season, 11 clubs can make the top eight.But I can only see the order of the teams inside the eight changing – which means that West Coast, St Kilda and the Western Bulldogs will not play finals.I think all three of those sides will lose in Round 23 and Essendon, currently eighth, will move to seventh after a big win over Fremantle.Melbourne would then drop to eighth after losing a thriller to Collingwood, and the only other positional change I have is...
When your coach tells you that you have the jobÂ on star St Kilda forward Nick Riewoldt you start to get nervous.Then you go intoÂ negotiation mode.My coach at Hawthorn Alastair Clarkson knew I wasnâ€™t great aerobically and there was no way I could go with a man famed for his running power for an entire match.We eventually settled on a plan: Riewoldt could collect marks and kicks up on the wing but I had to defend grimly inside St Kildaâ€™s forward 50.It worked a couple of times when I...
We launched the Facebook Journalism Project in January. Today we want to share an update about what we've heard from our partners and a recap of our work together over the past six months.
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".
