      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 .

Vick to the Packers?

Recommended Posts

Packers GM Ted Thompson is "looking at all options". He wouldn't elaborate anymore if they're serious about opening a new dog kennel in Green Bay.

That's interesting. I thought they had a good up and coming back in Rogers? He could be a decent backup, who knows and maybe they would use him in different positions in the offense. I still wouldn't want him on my team.

That's just how you try to play the media's game on your own terms. The media, the sources and the fans (readers) all know how to read between the lines.

If Rodgers goes down, there's nobody but the butcher's wife's sister's son to step in at QB. And we know the Packers organization understands how to handle the drama of media attention, don't we?

Who let the dogs out? gringringrin

I don't think it would happen either. I just found it funny that the Packer's GM is playing into the drama as if he didn't have enough of the Favre saga.

If you ask me, Thompson seems like a (can't say it on here) and about 99% of the Packs problems.

heard on radio this morning that vikes MAY HAVEintereset in vick. i believe he deserves another chance. i would like to see vick hear, but like others said on the farve thread dont think his style of play fits for the vikes. another sports editor and radio personality also said dont be a bit surpised if farve signs right before real season starts.

Listening to the ever trustworthy ESPN radio and the commentator thought there was a good chance of the Pack picking up Vick for a one year contract if the price was right. I don't see it happening but then again I don't have any idea who the Pack has as backup QBs.

Didn't it just come out the pack was also looking at someone else for a starter? Not showing much faith in Rogers and looking too start another Denver Debacle.

I think you're confused, it's the Vikings looking for a starting Q-Back! Rogers has no worries about playing every week. The guy is going to be much better than Favre, maybe already is! smile

Sorry, not confused. Just a little short on memory. There was talk the Pack was looking at a Veteran QB other than Vick.

The fans would rip that dog killer up!!! He wont be going to Green Bay!!!

Maybe he could compare notes with those fans that killed Devine's dog.

Rogers is safe. He was a top 10 QB his first year playing w/ better stats than Favre. They would never sign Vick because of the PR nightmare. If they did, he would be used as slot receiver and situational wildcat/option RB.

What fans were those? But hey, if you don't know what you're talking about, don't let that stop you.

Relax Snooze. I do realize that the story is controversial and much is out there that says the fans did not do it. I apologize if I struck a chord in your green and gold heart but if I am not mistaken we all will take some jabs at the other side. If I would have put a laugh next to it would you have felt better?

Besides, if they only allowed posts to those who actually knew what they were talking about this entire sports forum would see about two posts a week. laughgrinshockedeekwinksmilewhistle (I think I covered all the potential interpretations with these)

No controversy about it.

Quote:
Devine offered a detailed explanation in his autobiography, published in 2000. He acknowledged that his dogs wandered freely and created mischief; one turned up wounded during hunting season and was nursed back to health.

“Rumors circulated that some disgruntled fans or anti-Devine people had shot my dog,” he said in the book. “I honestly don’t believe that was what happened.”

“We weren’t so lucky with another one of our dogs,” Devine continued. “It was only a couple days later, ironically, when the dog wandered over to a nearby farm and began chasing the farmer’s ducks. The farmer, a neighbor who we knew very well, fired a gun at the dog, intending to scare him and get him away from his ducks. Well, the bullet happened to hit the dog and killed him. He had every right to shoot at the dog, and he knew it and I knew it.

“Still, he felt terrible about what happened. I saw him walking toward our house, carrying the dead dog in his arms, crying uncontrollably. He kept saying, ‘I didn’t mean to kill him,’ and I knew that was true. Still more rumors spread, even though it was a total accident, and that night I was down at his house, playing basketball with his kids."

“All those rumors reflected badly on the good people of Green Bay. Most of the people we met were genuine and nice to us…"

    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.  
    • Only made it out for one day for resident opener this last weekend but we had a great hunt. Took the day off and got out yesterday and battled the heat. I almost chose to call it quits early but went slow and took our time but had to take lots of breaks in the field. It was 74 degrees out and if I found water the dog got dunked. Was pretty slow day didn't see a single bird or shoot my first bird until 3:30pm. Ended up shooting all 3 of my birds in the same WIA in the span of an hour. Dog pointed a group of 3 hens in the same spot and then another by itself. Went about 30 yards further and dog locked up. Flushed bird it was rooster and dropped it on the first shot. As I shot 2 other roosters got up in gun range. With just one shell left in my O/U I rushed a shot going for a double, doh. Focused on where downed bird went down and sure enough another rooster gets up in the same spot it went down. Rushed both shots thinking it was the same bird I already knocked down. doh x2 Fortunately dog was able to retrieve first bird so was nice to put one in the vest for our first bird of the year. Took a water break and regrouped as that was a lot of excitement in a short amount of time and dog was overheated. Sat there for about 20 mins and let dog catch his breath. Started working field again and we no more and got started and dog locks up. Flush bird and its a rooster and he only needed one shot before he folded. Retrieved to hand and continued on.   Continue working to end of the property and saw a few more hens and one other rooster that I didn't want to drop over the water and thick cattails. He didn't fly far and hoped to get him on the way back as we walked side we hadn't covered yet. Dog locked up again on the other side and I let the bird get out a ways. Dropped it on the first shot and figured we were done for the day as it folded hard. It ended up being a runner and took off straight for the mud and thick cattails. We tried to track it, found some feathers so thought we were right on it. But once the dog got buried deep in the thick stuff it was just too warm. No scent going through there and he was getting way too overheated so I called him off the track.  We did end up getting our 3rd bird of the day with another nice point and retrieve. Was a good day to be out despite the heat. I spend the rest of the day scouting out other areas to hunt. Put about 350 miles on the truck and other than that one walk didnt see anything else. Did shoot a couple coons though and found a great set of antlers.  Unfortunately I forgot to bring my gopro and only took a couple pics.
    • I have had good luck with the eagle claw inline reel and love the freespool option. I have 3 of them and they all work great.
    • A few scrapes in the woods, cameras show the big boys moving at night still but they are around. Another week and I will start light rattling. I am  saving my best spots for Halloween on, unless a camera shows big boy daylight activity.
    • Think I saw somewhere that is Parise missed 10 games he can go on LTIR, between him and Coyle out 8 weeks we should be fine with the cap. Way to take one for the team boys. 
    • Great job for this kid!
    • I have to stop procrastinating, ice will be here before I know it! I made a little progress lately, I painted the inside, installed cedar accessory boards and thermostat and hopefully by this weekend have the rubber flooring down. I also ordered the termination cap for the furnace, should be seeing that in the next week or so. I also have a custom cushion being built to fit my bench seating. Got a question on rattle reels, I am looking at the all aluminum ultimate  rattle reels. Anybody use them? They seem a little spendy but not too concerned about the price, looking to see if there are any reviews out there. If those don’t seem to fit your need, what other brands have u used and feedback on them would be nice also. I will take some pics this weekend for a quick update.
