It's time to give credit where credit is due. The real star Saturday night at Mosaic Stadium in Regina was the 13th man. A total of 33,050 fans who came out to support the Saskatchewan Roughriders at their new home made the Tiger-Cats look like they've never played in front of a crowd before. If that was any indication of what opposing teams can expect this season, the Roughriders just may have a chance.
"They didn't build this big stadium for us to keep losing games." No, they certainly didn't Derek Dennis, who said that this week leading up to the Riders game against the visiting Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday night. The stocky left tackle comes from the Calgary Stampeders organization where under John Hufnagel's guidance, winning is just what they do. In Saskatchewan, in year two of the Chris Jones era, the Roughriders are still trying to find their way.
So far, at least one player has paid the price for the Saskatchewan Roughriders 0-2 start to the CFL season. Despite recording one of the few defensive highlights in the 43-40 overtime loss Saturday to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Jonathan Newsome was released just before the Riders took the field for practice on Tuesday morning. Newsome's first quarter interception led to the first touchdown of the game, but it wasn't enough to save his job. The move was more philosophical than performance related.
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".
