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.
So much for Jerry Jones and Robert Kraft being so mad at Roger Goodell. NFL owners are reportedly all set to offer the league’s CEO a contract extension that would keep him around through 2024, according to Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal. Goodell’s current deal runs through 2019.
Game of Thrones is a popular TV show about a nephew who’s falling in love with his aunt and they will probably do sex together. They’ve teamed up to fight a bunch of blue-faced ice men and a zombie army who were originally created to keep humans from trashing the natural world. On the most recent episode of this very hip TV show, the main blue-faced ice man, dubbed the Night King, threw a spear made of weaponized ice into the sky and brought down a dragon.
Thursday night treated us to a trio of exhibition football games. What stood out most of all was the terrible quarterback play. It was bad — so bad that you can be forgiven for not talking about a performance from Jay Cutler that did not feature any glaring screwups. Blake Bortles, Jaguars: He was 8-of-13, thanks to some easy completions on dump offs. It was only by sheer luck that he didn’t get intercepted, and he underthrew an unmolested Allen Robinson more than once.
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".
