      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Steve McNair Killed

Recommended Posts

Quote:
Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair reportedly was killed Saturday in a shooting in Nashville.

A medical examiner confirmed to local FOX affiliate WZTV that McNair was found dead after police responded to a shooting in the city.

The circumstances of the shooting weren't immediately clear as Nashville police continue to investigate.

McNair, 36, played 13 seasons, first with the Houston Oilers and then with the Tennessee Titans, which he led to the Super Bowl in 2000. He finished his career with the Baltimore Ravens before retiring in 2006.

He went to the Pro Bowl four times and was named co-MVP in 2003, along with fellow quarterback Peyton Manning.

Yeah, I believe that's #6 now. McMahon, Fawcett, Jacko, Billy Mays, Karl Malden, and now McNair all in the last couple of weeks.

The cops there are now saying the woman was his 20 year old girlfriend, but he was married- were they seperated or was he steppin' out? Could that have anything to do with it?

Looks like it was a murder/suicide. Police announced McNair was shot several times, and the gf was shot once, and a pistol was near her body. They have said they aren't looking for a suspect.

Sorry to tread on a man's grave but if the reports play out the way they are looking then he was no role model in my book. Just another P.O.S. scum bag who was cheating on his wife and probably was breaking it off with the girl friend who was half his age and she went nuts and offed them both. I would not choose this guy as a role model for any of my grand kids. Fortune, fame, beautiful wife and kids...not enough? Get real dude, you got what was coming to you. Play with fire and you get burned! But I am old school, not a lot of gray in my life, there is black and there is white, there is right and there is wrong.

Doesn't the good book say something like: Judge not lest ye be judged?

I feel sorry for everyone involved. They each face a different kind of tragedy.

The good book also says an eye for an eye and something about coveting thy neighbors wife, this guy was a married man who was doing illegal things with a girl half his age in a condo that he rented and in a car that he bought her. She was arrested a few days earlier for DUI with him in the car! Not the family man that everybody thought he was.

I did qualify my response in the very beginning with the word "if". I said if the reports pan out the way they are looking....

I can go along with Wade on this but "if" the reports are true you can count me in the catagory of "dismissed" and not "missed".

And yes I have done things wrong but I am fully accountable for each and every one of them. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time said Baretta!

If it's true that he was having an affair, which it sure sounds like, then yes, no role model off the field. I still think it did it right on the field. Either way, he didn't deserve to be gunned down like that. I would say a higher power can judge him on that.

Its only an "affair" if your wife does not know about it. His "mistress" killed him. His wife was fully aware of her excistance. Some people are willing to put up with a lot of things and look away from others. He is not the first to have a mistress, and he will not be the last.

Some, not all, athletes keep them in the town they play in while keeping a wife and family at home. When said player retires, what happens to the "other" gal?

im leaning towards jealousy as the motive here. murder-suicide. Regardlas of his actions he did nothing to warrant being shot and killed. RIP

Insert Michael Jordan and throw in the FACT that Michael Jordan was a "wife" BATTERER along with a womanizing cheater only confirms Windy's point that a lot of Athletes are POS... Michael just took it to whole nother level than most.

For the Record I don't beleive McNair was a POS but I do know MJ was/IS!

Carry On!

    • At the KMart at Nicollet and Lake in Minneapolis, there is a flock of pigeons that numbers several hundreds. Last Thursday going home from the Super Market I saw a large hawk make a strike at one, but missed.  This was a pretty dark bird overall and much bigger than a Coopers or a Sharpshin and heavy bodied not at all slender.  The attack was a straight line shot from a street light roost on a bird sitting on the shorter parking lot light post.  It seems to me that the attack was launched from a perch about a block away.  The target flew off and there was no chase, the attacker just returned to its previous roost.  I could not get over into the turn lane and go into the parking lot to get a closer look.  The main flock of pigeons didn't actually seem to notice, and there were even some stragglers. Is it possible that goshawks are starting to come into the city in the winter?  From a goshawk I would have expected a chase.  There are certainly plenty of pigeons, and the local falcons have gone south...  I know they are supposed to avoid human concentrations, but then so are loons and they are now common city residents and rest here when passing through in the spring.  We are getting all kinds of wild life in the Cities these days and not all of it goes around just on two legs.
    • I'm soon to be 40, still have never had a REAL super bowl party!   I will sit and hope.   Besides, at 7:11 last Sunday I pulled something in my neck/shoulder.  Might be a hole in my sister and brother in laws garage ceiling.
    • Lol. Dad and I were talking about this after the game last weekend after I had to tell him over and over that I have not been alive when the vikes have ever played a Super Bowl. You old timers can believe in what you want, but us Gen-X kids are saying SKOL!
    •   I'm sure if I had the time I could have spent 10 more minutes and made a nice one out of Oak or Cherry wood! Or found a blue Genz box on C/list and been done with it!
    •   You didn't try to call me, I would have given you some old oak boards I have laying around and let you use a few of my basic woodworking tools like a jig saw, an oscillating drum sander and a router with a round over bit.    I always tell my son, if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.  
    • Ooof, that sucks.  Been there, done that.  Somebody’s still being affected by our day in the soup at temps like that.  Woulda given the world for a few studs in the snowmobile track!
    • Got a set of old new stock mora 10in blades to put it on, and drilled  5 holes in 18-20in of ice no problem with the Milwaukee 1200in/lb-clam plate-mora 10in. Didn't skip or jump. This is gonna be nice for the wheel house.    When I had the HT Polar Fire shaver/chipper blades the drill would cut out because they were to agressive.    So so if anyone comes across some mora 10in shaver blades or 10in shaver blades in general let me know.
    • Sorry to be the guy that quotes himself but more info is needed.  Otherwise, yeah, might as well apply for A season if it’s just a general hunt.  And hope the weather cooperates.  
    • It was 31 below zero when i found  this slush .This is only time I got stuck it was about 2 feet of slush .  I had to jack it out of the water and let it sit for a day half.  I had to hook  3 widetracks together to get it out.
