      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 .

Final roster, your opinions??

some tough decisions we had quite a bit of talent and depth out there...it's always nice to have tough decisions thats mean you have some good players.

the players i was happy to see make the team were asher allen, reynaud, young, and onatolu...and of course percy.

asher looked pretty good out there this preseason,looked like he was a starter out there playing with 2nd and 3rd stringers...reynaud had some nice plays at wr and special teams...young looked shifty and solid, never know if peterson or taylor go down for awhile it's nice to have a guy that might be able to come in and make a big play.

onatolu looked like a special teams guru out there...almost every kickoff you heard his name...we need that...on that note i think our special teams have played real good...that will be huge for us not giving up a bunch of free points or letting teams start at mid field all the time like last season.

percy looked good except for that dropped TD....but he made some nice catches in traffic and broke some tackles...he gets good seperation on routes he should be real good this season...he looked fast and fluent on his kickoff returns...i could see him breaking a few of those this year.

They definitely had some tough decisions. But I don't think they'll miss anyone that they cut. I think the biggest question mark for this team is how quickly the offensive line can gel. Anytime you have 40% turnover on the line, there's a transition period. Hopefully it doesn't take too long and this team can get on a roll. Should be a fun season.

I think you nailed it with the o-line needing to gel. I certainly hope they come together and can eliminate the penalties. Penalties kill us every year.

Reynaud will be the big suprise this year on offense/special teams and Onatolu will be a monster on special-teams. Congrats to Cooper for making the team as an undrafted free agent and backing up Sullivan. Should be a great year...can't wait to see them get it started!!

Cooper's on the practice squad. They picked up some guy from Denver (I believe) to back up Sullivan.

i thought sully was real solid this preseason personally...not many mistakes at all from him and i seen him put some big blocks out there and even did some pulling and got up into the second level.

loadholt played ok...he seemed solid until later in the games when he started to struggle against speed...he needs to get his legs under him for the long haul.

overall i think the o-line looked pretty solid...of course there is work to be done but they looked solid i thought.

    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
    • Looks good, for sure. 
    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there. 
    • Really? I told them I will Only Agree to one year if the discounts are for one year and no problem. About two years ago I did call Direct TV and they wouldn't throw a deal. So I canceled my service then left for the weekend. I came home called them and said dish didn't show up to put it in and asked if they wanted me back has a new customer or if I just needed to let dish install it. They flipped it back on and gave me the deal. You will never get the "deal" with the first person you talk to. You have to talk to at least 2 people and the second one always gives in. I could really care less which one I have, but learning the channel number lineup sucks big time. I had dish about 6yrs ago and what made me go to direct tv is I had my dish get out of line on the roof of my two story house. They were gonna charge me $50-$100 for a tech to come set it right so I'd get a signal. I left and went to direct....The games they play are stupid. 
    • Heard the teal started to move south from some friends fishing the Minnesota river. I hope some stuck around Princeton but I know there is some wood ducks around 
    • Dish Network is a little tufter to tune in. They use a skew to get both satellites that is why they are turned a little. I go through how much direct charges me every other year.  I just ask for someone in charge and they usually lower it to a satisfactory amount. Last time they lowered it to 52 something because I have AT&T phone so they cut it in half.        
    • That looks good. Don't pay no mind Dave to that instigator!!!
