Ryan Van Bibber writes about the NFL for SB Nation. In 2006, he founded Turf Show Times, a site dedicated to chronicling the St. Louis Rams regular rebuilding efforts. A Missouri native, he lives there again these days, after spending his formative years in the glorious dry air of the American West.
Jon Gruden wants to write a book called The Football Gods. This is what he told Sports Illustrated in the requisite he’s back isn’t that cool profile that dropped this week. I don’t know if writing this book is a real aspiration or just some folksy Grudenism like the shit he said during the MNF broadcasts that was actually kind of fun sometimes. But this isn’t fun.
If 80s movies proved anything, it was that a leading male actor doesn’t have actually be able to act. They just have to be kind of muscular and deliver quips after landing punches. But it’s not the 80s anymore. Hollywood demands a new breed of action stars to make another dozen Fast and Furious sequels. Could Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski be their man? Maybe! The Gronk’s post-Super Bowl comments left his football career up in the air when he refused to commit to playing in 2018.
The Josh McDaniels era is over for the Indianapolis Colts. His time there as head coach will be (possibly) remembered mostly by taking his tenure as the Patriots offensive coordinator and weaving that into some speculation about what he might have done with the Colts. And what a magical few hours it 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 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".
