Just seven days after the death of his brother Aaron after an illness, Adelaide ruckman Sam Jacobs played against Greater Western Sydney. Come Saturday, he'll play again, in the grand final against Richmond, and his steely resolve will be further tested. Yet the man most call "Sauce" is as mentally strong as ever for the game of his lifetime. People grieve differently, and Jacobs, 29, said the best thing for him has been to be out on the footy field either training or playing alongside his mates.
Aaron Sandilands is somewhat of a contradiction. Despite his dominant size, ‘Big S’ is a hard working, humble and quiet guy. He arrived at the footy club as a shy, and in some ways self-conscious, young fella. Given his height and how much he stands out walking down the street, he’d grown accustomed to being stopped and asked how tall he was, what size shoe he wears and what the weather was like up there. And he hated it.
Mark McGough’s name will be forever associated with the Anzac Day clash. During his 49-game career, McGough played in three Anzac Day games with Collingwood, the first being in his second AFL match as a 17-year-old, where he received the Anzac Medal. He shares his thoughts about the day in an exclusive column for Aflplayers.com.au. Around this time 15 years ago, I was presented with my fondest AFL memory.
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".
