      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.

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!

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.

    • Bald Eagle skimmed over on Saturday.  Today after the relatively light snow there are many areas where the cracks look like water came up through and discolored the ice.  At least that what I think happened. Since there was only an inch or so of snow I am surprised that it pushed the ice down and let water come up.  Anyone else have an explanation?
    • I am assuming it was either an Ion, SM Lithium, or drill setup... If it is, no need for a slush copter. I put my slush bucket over the hole... drill... then reverse. In 12" of ice I can do 6 holes with one dump of the bucket. Every 6" beyond that takes another dumping of the bucket.
    • I have the parts on order to get the unit set up for the ice.  I ended up buying a marcum lithium shuttle for my LX7 and then plan to mount the Helix on the shuttle that came with my LX7.  I am hoping to find walk-able ice in my area this weekend and hopefully the parts show up before then so i can give it a go.  I have the pre-chirp model of the helix so with a little luck i can get them to cooperate.
    • Big home game tonight against a very young and vastly improved Calgary team.  Should be a great game.
    • I sold my old 4 stroke and bought a new electric this year because of the fumes.  Even drilling 4 holes nearly gassed me every time.  
    • I'd be careful about extending these older guys at this point....extending Koivu was a mistake and if Staal proves out and he's worth it we can sign him later...like we should have done with Koivu...but we've already been down that discussion. Agree on the 3 on 3 OT wins...we showed more aggressiveness, it paid off...and then it becomes a confidence factor which we certainly should have going forward.  Big game tonight.  
    • If you're rolling with 4 and a half inch car speakers which seem pretty standard for wheelhouses, you're just not gonna get much for bass out of the things, especially if they are el cheapos.  Which also seems pretty standard for wheelhouses. I don't own a wheelhouse, but for the portable, the boat, the garage, etc, I use a Bluetooth speaker.  Lasts all day on a charge and puts out pretty rich sound for $100.
    • Yup... you're right. 3000# for both brakes and licensing
    • Electrics augers are crazy nice in wheelhouse. I know that propane and 4-strokes give off WAY less fumes then the augers of yesteryear... but the new auger setups essentially have a slush copter built in with the reverse option.
    •   Not a chance that Nils is closing, quite the opposite as they can't make them fast enough. The Tanaka powerhead and transmission made by Hitachi (great product btw)was discontinued a few years back along with many other Tanaka power tools.   I thought that might effect Nils but timing and trend of going electric plus new higher torque drills and lithium higher amp hr batteries made the transition seamless.
