Martin Johnson remembers a time when American football at Twickenham was an unthinkable prospect. When England’s Rugby World Cup-winning captain began watching the NFL it was on a Channel 4 Sunday round-up show, the best way to follow the game as a British gridiron fan in the 1980s. Unlike the 24-hour year-round coverage available on these shores for NFL obsessives today, all the young Johnson had to go on was a highlights package.
Not so clownish now, is he?ÂWarren Gatland will be remembered as a man who led the Lions to a fabulous series victory in Australia in 2013, but securing a draw in New Zealand may go down as the greater achievement in time. He has led his squad to an impressive, and unexpected record in the Test series of P3 W1 L1 D1 against the All Blacks and comes away from the tour with his reputation enhanced.
Goodell is spotted at NFL stadiums around America every weekend but has not visited Foxborough, home of the Patriots, since the Deflategate story broke. During the game in which the Patriots won their place at the Super Bowl, a comfortable win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the gleeful crowd spent much of the second half chanting, "Where is Roger?"
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".
