Richmond fans have flocked to Punt Rd on Friday to cheer on the Tigers ahead of their preliminary final against Greater Western Sydney. The Tigers are eying their first grand final in 35 years, and first premiership in 37 years, with fans desperate to end decades of pain. Supporters began queuing outside the Tigers' training base well before the team's light training run from 10.15am, turning the precinct into a sea of black and yellow.
Geelong superstar Patrick Dangerfield admits the desire to win his elusive maiden premiership is burning even stronger on the eve of the Cats' preliminary final showdown with the Crows at Adelaide Oval. The 27-year-old has already achieved almost everything there is to achieve in footy with a Brownlow Medal, an AFLPA MVP, five All-Australians and two best-and-fairests to his credit in his glittering 201-game career.
Adelaide forward Tom Lynch is riding high on a wave of excitement as he prepares for the first preliminary final of his career when the Crows face Geelong at Adelaide Oval on Friday night. But less than three months ago, footy was the last thing on his mind, when he was struck down with a mystery illness that was later diagnosed as viral meningitis. Lynch spent time in hospital in the intensive care unit and the former Saint recalled how frightening that chapter in his life was.
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".
