The Saskatchewan Roughriders are to open the 2018 CFL regular season against the team that ended their 2017 campaign. According to the 2018 schedule — which was released by the league Thursday — Saskatchewan is to begin its 18-game regular season on June 15 with a home game against the Toronto Argonauts. The Argos beat the visiting Roughriders 25-21 in the East Division final on Nov. 19, eliminating Saskatchewan from Grey Cup contention. Toronto went on to win the CFL title.
Chris Jones has been rewarded for his rebuilding job. Saskatchewan Roughriders president and CEO Craig Reynolds announced Tuesday that Jones — the CFL team’s vice-president of football operations, general manager and head coach — has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him with the Roughriders through the 2019 season. As a result, Jones will get to continue the process he started in December of 2015 when he initially joined the Roughriders.
To say the Saskatchewan Roughriders are OK with altering the timing of the CFL season would be an understatement. “We’re wildly supportive of that,” Roughriders president-CEO Craig Reynolds said Tuesday during a media conference at Mosaic Stadium. “Actually, we’ve done some fan polling and our fans are wildly supportive of that move. We’ve certainly been talking with the league and expressing that view to the commissioner and our counterparts at the board of governor level around a season shift.
Saskatchewan traded 23rd and 31st picks to Montreal, 47th pick to B.C., 56th to Hamilton and 65th to Edmonton. Roughriders also forfeited a fifth-rounder to select LB Brandyn Bartlett in the supplemental draft.
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".
