Dan Gilbert is the owner who, as ill-advised as it was, wrote what a lot of fans were feeling at the time of LeBron James' infamous Decision. He's the owner who has spent more than $300 million in player salaries and luxury taxes the last two seasons — which helped the Cavs win their first-ever championship in Year 2 of James' triumphant return. All of the above has given Gilbert considerable clout with a fan base that embraces a winner like no other.
Nine days ago, I wrote a blog that broke down the Indians' early attendance totals, and tried to make a case that the Tribe would get to the 2-million mark for the first time since 2008. At the time, the Tribe had played 29 home games (they've since added three to that total), and the path to 2 million went something like this:1. The Indians would need to average 30,000 fans per game for their eight remaining weekend series, which includes 26 home dates because of two four-game sets. 2.
The Offseason of Kevin Love Trade Speculation — aka any time the Cavs don't win a championship — began before even the official start of summer this year. The Cavs, as you might have heard a couple times since Father's Day, have inquired about trading for Pacers star Paul George, who has told Indy he has no plans to return after playing out the final season of his contract in 2017-18.
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".
