Expectations have never been higher for Toronto FC. A record-setting season has the Reds as clear favourites to win this year’s MLS title. With success comes a different feel for the playoff run this time around. A first-round bye has the team well rested with plenty of time to prepare. And home-field advantage throughout the playoffs means Toronto will play the last game of 2017 at BMO Field – where they lost just once this season.
Decision Day arrives Sunday in Major League Soccer. It’s the final match day of the season, with all 22 teams playing simultaneously with postseason seeding and one playoff spot still to be decided. The pressure is off Toronto FC this time around, having already secured top spot in the Eastern Conference (and MLS), giving them a first-round bye and home-field advantage all the way to MLS Cup. But that doesn’t mean Sunday’s trip to Atlanta doesn’t matter.
Toronto FC is the top team in Major League Soccer for the 2017 regular season after a 4-2 home win over the New York Red Bulls on Saturday night. Nothing ever comes easy for TFC. The team went from up 2-0 and in cruise control in the first half to a 2-2 tie with less than 15 minutes to go. A Victor Vazquez penalty and Justin Morrow’s third goal of the night ensured it was another special night at BMO Field.
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".
