The paradox: Athletes such as Stephen Curry, Zack Greinke and Derek Carr are setting records with average annual salaries of $40 million, $34 million and $25 million … because of sports unions. But those players, and their peers, remain underpaid … because of sports unions. I understand that arguing for athletes to get paid more irritates most fans. But this is about giving a more accurate account of how leagues use their far-reaching influence to take more than they’ve earned.
Shouldn’t Brad Stevens’ name be in NBA trade talk, too? Yes, Danny Ainge, Boston Celtics president of basketball operations, should be shopping his head coach. I realize this seems crazy or even foolish. Who in their right mind would trade a proven head coach? The answer is Ainge. As Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers fans may remember, in 2013 Ainge released coach Doc Rivers to sign with the Clippers in exchange for a future first-round pick.
By the end of the 2017-18 NFL season, Todd Bowles, head coach of the New York Jets, is likely to be out of a job. It’s sad what Bowles is about to endure. He is entering the upcoming NFL season with the highest stakes possible, while general manager Mike Maccagnan has spent the offseason ridding the Jets of their proven talent and giving him Josh McCown at quarterback instead. The Jets released a mainstay on their defense, linebacker and leading tackler David Harris, on June 7.
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".
