      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.

    • Takes a shot of cure to get that ring, if you don't have a source of carbon monoxide to mess with the enzymes////
    • I like the galvanized tin!
    • Looks awesome, great smoke ring. Was it a little more tender this go around?
    • You sir, did a great job! Enjoy your house... 
    • Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them?

    • You don't get a smoke ring like that with liquid smoke either 
    • Yup, the bike sold and they guy seems pretty happy with the purchase. The only reason it was parked we think because it had a bent back rim. He had torn it all apart and put it back together and currently has it running. 
    • Camper is winterized for the season. 
    • As far as an app to keep him from getting lost, you could try the Polaris Ride Command app. It is a really good trail map and I believe you can download the maps for the areas you ride in so it will still work even if you don't have cell signal. https://ridecommand.polaris.com/en-us/landing-pages/AppLandingPage
    • I don't know much about it but maybe satellite tracking might be an option?  http://www.cabelas.com/product/SPOT-LLC-SPOT-GEN-ORANGE/1661065.uts?productVariantId=3609002&WT.tsrc=PPC&WT.mc_id=GoogleProductAds&WT.z_mc_id1=03750221&rid=20&lsft=ref:212,loc:1&gclid=CjwKCAjw4KvPBRBeEiwAIqCB-U1B1VDAZZB5771da4q6PQrP_nm5K5-fi29AOxs0i6bnAO3O3wWVWxoC6R4QAvD_BwE I would think you would be out of range quickly on an ATV in the Chippewa National Forest.
