ON WHAT we have been told over the past few days, the AFL and its competitors are threatened by the following: organised crime, shonky sports scientists, cowboy supplement salesmen, juiced-up gym junkies and, most ominously, Asian match fixers with designs on the A-League. Essendon has been menaced, meanwhile, by the Batman-style villains of The Weapon, the Pharmacist and Dr Ageless, as ''Sister Jab'' administered needles from their Botox clinic hideaway.
EDDIE McGuire’s Collingwood board is set for significant change, with a review recommending that up to three of the club’s seven directors should step down soon. In what shapes as the most significant change for the club board since McGuire assumed control in late 1998, the review is also understood to recommend that McGuire stay on as president for the remainder of his term — which runs until February of 2020 — but that Collingwood should introduce term limits for directors in future.
JASON Cripps will remain at Port Adelaide as list manager, the former Saint having decided not to pursue a senior position at St Kilda. Cripps, a former St Kilda player and assistant coach, was among the candidates for a senior role in St Kilda’s football department, which could be revamped following the exit from the Saints of incoming Western Bulldogs chief executive Ameet Bains.
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".
