It’s some five days after his football team was eliminated from the Grey Cup derby, and Winnipeg Blue Bombers GM Kyle Walters still has some issues stuck in his craw. The Bombers boss spoke to the media for 38 minutes on Friday – less than a week after the West Semi-Final loss to the Edmonton Eskimos – and clearly will need more time to put the ending to a once-promising 2017 campaign in his rearview mirror.
It was real and it was emotional. And when Jermarcus Hardrick scribbled his name on a contract extension with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers this week, it was all admittedly a little overwhelming. “I’m still in shock,” began the Bombers right tackle, whose one-year extension was announced Thursday. “This has never happened to me, man. It still doesn’t seem real. “This is important for me to be able to take care of my family… it’s hard to put into words.
Mike O’Shea doesn’t like post mortems. Nobody in sports does, because they require asking hard questions about the untimely death of a season. And in the case of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, their 2017 campaign – for all its promise with a 12-6 record and the first home playoff game in these parts in six years – ended much too early.
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".
