Andrea Pirlo during his time at New York City (Getty Images)What made you fall in love with Andrea Pirlo? Everyone has their moment. Maybe it was the beard. Maybe it was those “No Party” t-shirts. Or his passing. Perhaps it was his timeless fashion. That Panenka against England? Did you read the killer autobiography? Or see the video of him leaning on the post?
Because Australian sport is not widely understood internationally, and due to the physical distance from the key markets of Europe and the USA, it is often overlooked as a market for inspiration. Well known is the expertise in sports science and medicine, but not so much in other areas - probably because we don't see many Australians in senior sporting roles (coaching, general administration, senior management) abroad.
Here’s some words you wouldn’t have previously used with the W-League: Blockbuster. Bank. Big time. Where once we might have used phrases like grassroots, community and humble to describe the best attributes of this competition, the goalposts have moved. Faster than any of us could have planned for.
@rohan_connolly I enjoyed that a lot Rohan - legitimately the first draft analysis I’ve seen that is honest and doesn’t make everyone out to be a star. I’m always confused why every other analyst is pumping up virtually every kid available.
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".
