Like most of the teams he played for, Terrell Owens’ Friday night on Twitter started off promising before completely devolving into chaos. It all began with an innocent tweet in which Owens answered a fan question by saying Andy Reid was the best coach he ever played for. When fans started asking about Owens’ other coaches, things started to go downhill. The main target of Owens’ ire was current Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett.
Major League Baseball players have made it clear they hate commissioner Rob Manfred’s new pace of game proposal. According to various reports, the players vehemently rejected Manfred’s plans, and are going to force him to enact his power as commissioner in order to bring pitch clocks and limited mound visits to baseball. At the time those reports emerged, it was reasonable to question why the players were fighting so hard against the new rules. Were they suddenly traditionalists?
Just before Week 15, Marvin Lewis was gone. After 15 years with the Cincinnati Bengals, it was reported that Lewis was planning to leave the team at the end of the season. Three games later, Lewis was back. He signed a two-year deal to return as the Bengals’ coach. How the heck did that happen? Until now, it was only speculation. But Bengals owner Mike Brown put all of that to rest in an interview with Cincinnati.com.
I really hoping that a team right on the playoff cusp is the one that finally decides to pony up the money for some top FAs. The Twins, Rockies and D-Backs stand to gain so much by other teams playing hardball.
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".
