After Jim Mora was fired at UCLA, there was widespread speculation that perhaps they moved that quickly because they didn’t want to let Florida hire Chip Kelly without a fight. In the ensuing hours, rumors that Chip Kelly could nevertheless wind up in Gainesville have intensified.
Al Michaels joined Mike Francesa’s show on WFAN on Thursday, and the first 10 minutes was a fascinating discussion on the ongoing war between Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell. Michaels, by virtue of being one of the lead NFL announcers for decades, is pretty deeply connected with NFL owners, and Francesa asked him aside from the compensation committee — where John Mara, Dan Rooney, and Arthur Blank are Goodell BFFs — whether the Cowboys owner has any support behind the scenes in his crusade.
Jameis Winston is under NFL investigation after allegations of groping a female Uber driver in 2016 have emerged in a story by Buzzfeed. In the statement that he released in response to the story, which we will run in full at the bottom of the post, this segment sticks out: “The story falsely accuses me of making inappropriate contact with the driver.
I've said this a bunch of times but it's palpable how much less buzz the NFL has this year. I'm not just saying that because the Packers are bad. There's dramatically less public interest in the storylines.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
