Before this week, it had been over two years since anyone had publicly seen Roger Goodell in the Boston area, but that drought finally ended Wednesday when the NFL commissioner was spotted at Boston's Logan Airport. A camera crew for WBZ-TV, the CBS afilliate in Boston, caught Goodell as he was exiting the international boarding area following a trip to Israel.
It has been more than four and a half months since the Falcons blew a 28-3 lead to the Patriots in Super Bowl LI, and in that time, most of the players in Atlanta have been able to put the loss behind them. Reigning NFL MVP Matt Ryan said the team was able to put the 34-28 overtime loss behind them a few months ago. "When we started as a team in April, we got together before that as players down in Miami. It was time to move on. It was time to look forward," Ryan said recently, via AJC.com.
After watching Andy Reid lead Kansas City to three playoff appearances during his first four years with the team, the Chiefs' front office has decided they'd like him to stick around a little bit longer. The team announced Thursday that Reid has signed an extension, meaning he'll be in Kansas City for the foreseeable future. One person who won't be around, though, is general manager John Dorsey.
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".
