The Lions had company Tuesday, hosting NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on a brief visit to Detroit to tour their newly-renovated home at Ford Field. But they’ve also got company in bidding to host the NFL draft, a point Goodell made clear during a “fan forum” the Lions held with the commissioner while he was in town. Lions president Rod Wood confirmed the team has submitted an initial proposal to host the league’s annual draft weekend in 2020 and ’21.
Detroit — It’s worth remembering, even on nights like these, as the Lions hosted a “fan forum” Tuesday with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell at Ford Field, that he doesn’t really work for them. He doesn’t work for the players, either. No, Goodell only truly serves a constituency of 32 owners — more than half of them billionaires — that he routinely refers to as “the membership.”And for the membership, business is good.
Allen Park — This is the other danger hidden in the game they love, beyond the brain injuries they endure and the pain medication they ingest, beyond the risks they take now and the unknown consequences they’ll face later. And it’s one that some of the Lions were discussing again Monday, as they reacted to the news a former teammate and one of the NFL’s most respected players, Anquan Boldin, had announced his retirement over the weekend.
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".
