      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…"
