      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 .

Booty gone!!!

Recommended Posts

I can't believe that the Vikings cut Booty and kept Jackson. I liked Booty much better than Jackson, and the odds that either of them are going to see playing time is very limited this season. If things play out like them seem to, Booty will be picked up by another team and show that he can be a very good NFL QB, meanwhile the Vikings sit with Jackson on our bench as a "work in progress". Only time will tell, but I think the Vikings have wasted enough time and money on this guy.

Booty was (is) horrible, Jackson showed he CAN play at times at least. I will be surprised if Booty is signed anywhere other than our practice squad.

I agree with Musky. If you look at the string of QB's that were former Trojan's, there is a great history there and I don't think Booty will be much different. While I think Jackson can and will be a fine QB, I feel that Booty had the same potential.

It sounds like Booty fans can relax. Judd Zulgad is reporting that he cleared waivers and will be on the practice squad.

Booty doesn't rank anywhere near the top of the USC quarterbacks talentwise. He was basically carried along by the superior talent around him. He was good but not on the same level as Palmer. Also there aren't many success stories, at quarterback, from USC lately.

Isn't that what they would be doing if they would have kept booty??? At least jackson has shown improvement, they are much better letting jackson sit on the bench this year and learn from favre!!!

Jackson may be what Brad Childress is remembered for specifically here in Minnesota...for better or worse! While he's going to go down as one of the most uninspiring playcallers in MN Vikings history, I think he's much more connected to T-Jack's success or failure. Many times he has put a lot of faith in T-Jack, very publicly. If T-Jack fails (as I believe he will), the only thing that can erase that blemish on his legacy would be a super bowl victory. With the talent the organization has put together around the rest of the field, it's now up to the coaches to call an inspired game and make sure the players play up to their potential.

Well here is my big question........how long does everyone still consider Jackson a "work in progress?" Eventually, he has to be labeled a flop and cut loose for cryin out loud. He has been given more than enough chances and has not capitalized on any of them. He has had his chance, now they should have given Booty the same chance and let Jackson run the practice squad.

How can anyone possibly say Booty is ahead of Jackson? Botty has a long way to go before he ever starts for any team in the NFL. If he is so great how come no other teamed claimed him. Notice also that no team wanted to even trade a jug of gatorade for Jackson.

T Jack can't run the practice squad- he has too much active game time. Booty was still eligible because he was active for only 1 game last year. It has to be under 9 games in 1 season to be eligible.

T Jack is only in his 4th year. For a qb, he is still young. Most QB's don't develop until they hit their mid-late 20's. He still has time to develop. The thing I worry about with him is when he has pressure- as a starter and in big games. He has looked good since we signed Favre this year- pressure OFF! Which, with any young qb is a concern. Only experience can help you over come that pressure. The success in the last few years of the rookie qb's- Flacco, Ryan, Roethlisberger is somewhat of a farce. It usually doesn't happen and in all of those situations those qb's came into veteran teams with big time Defenses and a good/great RB and very good receivers. The Vikes D was not all that when T Jack was a rookie and our receivers have been HORSE&*(* until this season.

I think T Jack is going to be our back up, at least to start the season with Sage as the #3. I will be surprised if we don't sign him after this year, unless Chili and his regime are gone.

Unless you personally know Booty or have been hanging around down in Mankato, how can a person honestly have feelings about him being tossed? By his NFL pre-season stats? smirk

If you look at his college past, it is pretty sad. He did break some record in a bowl for TD's and lead his team to a victory. Short of that he was a bench warmer and still got injured almost every season. crazy

I can not even believe there was any question about Jackson or him.

Geez,

we're 5-0 and still you guys are whining about T-Jack who has looked pretty good lately.

Even though one wouldn't know it by all the lame excuses and hand wringing you whiners keep throwing out there about T-Jacks surprisingly good performances. smile

I'm happy to have T-Jack as our back-up QB.

Not sure why you whiners are crying so hard about that laugh

Looked pretty good lately?? bahahahahahaha!

Good one!

Ryan Leaf would look good in mop-up time too!

It's pretty obvious that when the pressure is off Jackson can hang in there. He won't win the game for you, but probably won't completely give it away either.

With that said, he's a perfect candidate for the practice squad where there is no pressure! Of course it's hard to showcase his "talents", i.e. trade bait, if you can't bring him in with a 20+ point lead to prance around for a minute or two.

Tjunk has not taken a meaningful snap this season.

Tjunk is a mediocre at best QB.

If Chilly was not our coach TJunk would not be in Purple.

You might want to try watching th games to the end harvey lee laugh

When I say surprisingly good, I don't just mean T-Jack showed good skills. I mean he shoed surprisingly good skills.

Now it will be fun to just add some pressure to the situation and see how he performs.

Tavaris Jackson has had some pressure added to the situation many times. Mostly he failed. Jackson supporters are finally seeing what a winner (Favre) can do with the tools around him. As a Packer fan, I've enjoyed watching this argument go on and on. As long as the Vikings stuck with Jackson, the team was going to be stuck in mediocrity. Now that there is a QB who knows how to play with pressure, the Vikings are playing outstanding. THIS is what the Vikings were missing....Jackson was the clog in the Vikings toilet.

You know what you have in Jackson, and it's not a game-winning quarterback. It's a guy who shows his best during mop up time. Booty gave some hope for the future. That's what your 3rd QB should be...a guy who might develop into something. Jackson's development is done at this point. That dog has learned its tricks.

    • FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone.   May a person park their own vehicle in their own driveway approach?
    • I think they’re more looking at the footings requirement, aren’t they?  Thus the reason for getting the poles below the frost line?   Its the township’s responsibility to figure this out and you have the right to ask them to cite the code they’re following.   I used to live in Isanti County and dealt with a building inspector from my township on the construction of my detached garage.  Things weren’t very strict to say the least.     We built everything by the current UBC code, so I’d suggest first getting a copy of the current version of that since this building will actually be your home.  Don’t take unnecessary shortcuts to save a few bucks up front.  You’ll eventually regret it.   Reading your plans for the slab, it sounds pretty good.  There are plenty of slab homes out there built the way you describe.  What you don’t want is movement.     I’m not an expert by any means but I think footings on your slab wouldn’t be a bad idea and sinking your poles that deep should be a requirement.  If you don’t do footings, at least pour your slab thicker on the perimeter to hold it better.    Your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) can be more restrictive than code, but not less.  So if it’s defined in the UBC, you have to do at least that much.
    • I’ve personally been on both sides of this.   Used to love getting as much air as possible over driveways but I never understood gunning it on the other side after crossing.  I guess some are just mild adrenaline junkies.    I quit doing that for one, because it’s illegal, and two, not safe if the homeowner happens to be leaving or getting the mail at the time.   Now that I have a posted trail going over my driveway, I find it just rude, obnoxious and irritating to deal with 4 wheelers and sleds gunning it over the gravel and making ruts and eroding my base to the point of it being an expense to either plow and pack the class 5 back in place or spend the money to pave it.  I hate having to bounce over two ruts with my trailers and whatever I’m hauling in them too.   I think that’s the worst part for me.  Either jump it or be mellow on the throttle the entire way over.   I’ve seen trail groomers go around driveways before, making me wonder if that truly is a requirement or they were simply being courteous.  But I agree with knoppers, they should not drag over the driveway.  Maybe they think they’re taking the snow off for ya.  Call the people responsible for the trail and ask them for suggestions.  
    • If you want to get through ice fast and are going to re-tool for it completely, look at a Nils before making your final decision. 
    • I am fully aware of this as are most people.
    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
