In what has become an annual tradition, the Calgary Flames will open their preseason on two fronts this evening. With 68 players in camp, the Flames will split things up keeping one team in town and sending another up the road for some split squad action this evening. At both the Scotiabank Saddledome and Rogers Place, tonight will see Calgary take on the Edmonton Oilers (7 pm, Sportsnet 960 and CalgaryFlames.com).
Last week’s MMQB led with the importance of quarterback depth in today’s CFL. Well, now the Ottawa REDBLACKS are set to have their depth tested even further after their 29-11 win in Montreal on Sunday. Already without starter Trevor Harris thanks to a shoulder injury, the REDBLACKS lost backup Drew Tate in the second quarter. The 2017 season has posed all kinds of challenges for Ottawa thus far, but they might now be faced with the toughest one yet.
There are few things more important in today’s CFL than quarterback depth. It seems like every single season sees multiple No. 1 quarterbacks go down for extended periods of time. And, after only a scattering of those occurrences prior, Week 12 saw three different starting quarterbacks go down with significant injuries. Now we’re going to see why having quarterback depth is so important.
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".
