CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie wants to make the league more transparent for its fans. To that end, Ambrosie asked each team this off-season to reveal 10 of the names on its confidential negotiation list. Here’s a brief look at 10 of the players currently on the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ negotiation list.
Travis Bond is Ford tough … or maybe it was a Chevy … or perhaps it was a Dodge. The Saskatchewan Roughriders’ newest offensive lineman doesn’t know what type of vehicle ran into him that day in 2012 — he once called it “a Ford Explorer-type truck” — but he knows he was fortunate to walk away from the hit-and-run with relatively minor injuries.
When Jerome Messam spoke to the Regina media Thursday, he had just taken his dog to the veterinarian for its annual injection. Messam is getting another shot too, albeit one of a different kind. The 32-year-old tailback has rejoined the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who previously employed him during the 2014 and ’15 CFL seasons.
The Roughriders have re-signed four international players who finished the 2017 season on the practice roster: Offensive linemen Jarvis Harrison and Terran Vaughn, receiver T.J. Thorpe and defensive back Melvin White.
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".
