      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 .

Running up the score

Recommended Posts

I am so sick of hearing these cry babies in the national media gripe, whine and complain that the vikings ran up the score on the little girls. They all picked them cowboys to win, and now when they get their [PoorWordUsage] kicked they want to FemaleDog at us for playing a near perfect game. If they didnt want us to score 30+ points they had 60 minutes to stop us.

I dont hear any of them whine that the taints ran it up on the cardinals. They didnt need to have their starters in during the fourth quarter. Grow up cry babies. Its not a sixth grade powderpuff football game. These guys are getting paid for 60 mins.

Brookings didn't tell his coach to slow down the scoring when they were running it up against Phily, I wonder why not?

I concur. There are tons of games that end up more lopsided than this. Maybe the should write a manual of when is the proper time to lay down and quit (sarcastic)

Maybe they should tell Olympic athletes its unsportsmanlike to win by over a second in track, skating, skiing, swimming, etc. (also sarcastic, sorry, I'm full of it)

Pro athletes get paid to do there job and as a defense it was there job to stop the vikings and they failed. There is no reason for the Cowboys whineing they couldn't stop them suck it up and except the defeat!

Funny their defense was still showing blitzes so I guess it was still okay to try to kill our QB!

Yeah I agree. If the game was out of their reach why were they calling timeouts and blitzing us? It is nice to have one more reason to hate the cowboys next year and the year after that.

I've only heard a couple of media jackals complain and most saying it was no big deal.. I think some of us are over reacting more about it than the media is. To me its a non story and time to move on..

Nobody (sports casters) ever give the vikings a chance. According to them they shouldn't have beaten them. Goes to show what they know. It's just like the twins. And the twins seem to do pretty well.

It was inevitable with Joe Buck and Aikman calling the game that the vikes would be hated on. I have to agree with PierBridge though and say lets just move on from that B.S.

In 1999, Mr. Brookings was a member of the Atlanta Falcons that paraded around the dome doing the "dirty bird" dance after they beat us. He has no basis for his rant against that TD.

I'm glad Jimmy Johnson was able to give his opinion, too bad Bradshaw was also able to talk. Should we have taken a knee at 4th & three?

I'm not a Vikes fan so I will give a little different perspective. I didn't even watch the whole game, but the jist I got on the deal was it was 4th & 3 to go deep in the Boys zone and the Vikes went for it and scored a TD.

I realize these guys are pros and if they don't them to score, than just stop them. Well that is all fine but a little misguided. If you are up on a team big, you probably shouldn't go for it on 4th & 3 deep in the other teams territory. You should kick the field goal, just like you would the other 95% of the time. If you don't you are twisting the knife on the other team. I don't think teams shouldn't try to score or just run 3 draw plays and punt. They should play normal and take points as they would conventionally.

These things have a keen way of evening out, so don't cry the blues when it happens to the Purple.

I've only got one thing to say....PANTS ON THE FLOOR, PANTS ON THE FLOOR!!! laugh

OK, two things....to make a SB run, momentum, confidence, and swagger are important. Kicking somebody's butt gives you all of these. I'm hoping for a great championship game. Should be fun to watch. Both teams are coming off big wins.

What kills me is that during the game the Cowboys players were jacking their jaws and talking [PoorWordUsage] to the Vikings players. They talked before the game, they talked during the game, and then they whined like a bunch of cry babies after the game. Brookings is lucky that I wasn't coaching the team cause right after he came to our bench and shot off his mouth, I would have ran an onside kick and tried to score another touchdown just to shut him up. I bet if the game ended up the other way with the Cowboys doing it to the Vikings, nobody would have said a single word cause the Cowboys were just such a hot team that they were supposed to score that much.

Who cares, let the whiners like Bradshaw and Brookings cry.

We have a Championship game to look forward to. Time to move on and leave em in their own tears.

As Vikes fans we've had our fair share of that.

    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside
