      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 .

What is wrong with these guys?

Recommended Posts

Let his butt sit. What does he think his worth will be next year? You know it will go down, or at least it should. So instead of 20 mil ne needs 23 mil? Do they even realize how much money that is? Idiots!!1

This is exactly why some say he slipped to where he actually got drafted. In his interviews with potential teams, he came across as being very "full of himself". I say let him sit as well...that 20 million or whatever his $$$ would be this year will not be on the table next year. I bet he'll get along with Singletary just great when and if he does show up.

It would be really hard to cheer for a kid like this now even if he did come to his senses.

A year out of the game will cost this kid a ton of money and he doesn't seem to realize it. He's getting some BAD advice somewhere.

If he sits out and reenters the draft every team will know what a headcase he is and his stock will drop. Even if everyone still rates his talent really highly many teams will pass on him because of his attitude. He'd be lucky to get redrafted anywhere in the first round.

And on top of that he'll be another year older and have 1 less year where he'll be physically able to collect an NFL paycheck.

He's likely digging the grave for his career if he doesn't wise up.

there should be a salary cap for all rookies and they should be forced to play for the team that drafts them, period. If the refuse, ban them from the NFL and tell them to take their Azzes to the CFL or the Arena league.

He'll sign it's just an attempt to get a few more bucks.

Hopefully this makes the NFL players and the Lawyers that represent them open their eyes and they finally realize in the next collective bargaining agreement that it needs to be tweaked and a salary cap for Rookies needs to be put in place..

Obviously the veteran players who have earned their contracts and money are being screwed by all the CASH the untested rookies are hording.

I could see a couple teams going after him if he re-enters the draft.

the rookie signing structure is ridiculous. NOWHERE, NOWHERE ELSE does an unproven person get paid more than the best player/worker at the company or team.

To see rookies make more money than the best player in the NFL is just ludicrous.

And Crabtree is an [PoorWordUsage]. Get your contract signed, you're talking about an extra million or two. Its already a TON of money, and if you get to camp, make a great impression, and get off to a good career, the dollars will flow that much easier when it comes time to re-negotiate

Look what a year out of football did for Mike Williams

it would be really sweet if he was boycotted and no one ever drafted him again...then he has to go out and get a 9 to 5 and struggle like the rest of us to buy the nice things we want....hey lets cry about 23.7 million over 20.5 million...moron.

If he sat out the year which isn't going to happen he'd be drafted at least as high next year.

The NFL teams don't make personal decisions especially on good young players because of some media driven non-sense started by an agent trying to get his client some more moola!

ok let me get this straight, oakland for the first time ever did a smart thing by passing on him and his giant attitude, kinda funny, people thought they were crazy for passing on him but they probably will come out ahead now.

I think there should be a cap on guaranteed money for rookies, then the rest should be incentive based. If he's such an all star go out there and prove it then we'll give you the 23.7 million. The player's union would never let this slide, but it makes sense to me. JMHO.

They should cap them. Or the NFLPA should get together and get their carp straight. It's ridiculous what these rooks can demand. I hope he spirals down into a nobody, nothing, or better yet, ends up in the CFL!!!!

    • Not sure but I do know that the GPS on the units is said to be a big drain on the battery. We checked to see if the GPS could be turned off and were told it could not.  The screen brightness on these units also has a big impact on battery life so the darker you can have the screen the better for battery life.
    • This kid knows whats good!  Unlike Smurfy!     
    • Hes kinda like the Highlander.... There can be only one
    • Frank, how does one become a certified Nils sharpener anyway? I honestly have no interest, just curious. Seems weird you are like the only one anywhere that does this. What happens when you retire? 
    • Do you guys with the newer CHIRP Models have any idea how long it will run on a full battery charge?  Never really fish in a situation where I wouldn't be able to recharge it overnight, but hopefully it could run all day without problems.
    • That seems like a great deal on the 7.  I was happy with $450 for the 5 at the Ice Show. When I was shopping for my 5 I found a few online retailers selling it for around $430 with free shipping, but they were all based in Florida and I wanted to be able to take it back to a store if there were any problems. Plus something doesn't seem right about buying ice fishing gear from a store in Florida. FWIW the prices I saw at the St. Paul Ice Show on the 5 was $450 from Reeds and Thorne Bros. $459 from Joes. Didn't check the Marine General booth.
    • Looks like a good buck to me Scoot, not many that big where I hunt in WI to be honest and I'd be hard pressed to let him walk even if I knew a bigger one might be in the area.  
    • Yes, I've found my manuals online. Maybe I'm too old school, but still would prefer an actual booklet to page through.  I've downloaded it to my phone - otherwise I would be SOL up north in many areas as I rarely get coverage up there (and I don't really complain about that - nice to get a break from technology).
    • Ya nice to have a competent backup. Just for fun I checked on Kuemper, he is putting up great numbers for the kings but they have been hot.
