      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 .

Welcome to the head coach job Leslie.................

Recommended Posts

Good move! I like Frazier for the time being. Might give us some time to get our act together for next year.

Still what a train wreck this year has been.

It's all over the news and media:

I am about as excited as I was yesterday. Wish they would have had a mystery coach come fro out of the blue. IMO we are back in the saddle as usual until the true head coach replacement is brought in.

the way i look at it, it seems the players did not like childress [ i only know this from various press accounts} and they had respect for frazier so in that regard it is good for the players. for the fans, many who are frustrated with the plays and angry with childress, this is somewhat good news that the management is doing something about it. could it have been done earlier, sure, we all like to prognostigate but it was going to happen and with the sideline arguments sunday and the poor effort by the players [harvin played great] this was the momment. now the question is will farve start sunday? personaly i fault the offensive line more than him and tj is not the answer for the future and webb is not ready but the best athlete and i would make him the back up. good luck.

Sad thing is Frasier's defense was the most pathetic aspect of the game yesterday. If he can't even get his guys on defense to play what does that tell you? Hopefully him being at the helm is very short lived.

I can somewhat understand the offense studdering with our top receiver being gone and Favre being horrible this year but what is Frasier's excuse with the same guys he had last year?

Soon we will see if Frasier has kahunas to keep Favre off the field. The Vikes need to think about tomorrow. Today is shot.

There are many aspects of a team's performance that can be laid at the feet of a head coach. Some of those will get swept out with Chilly. Some won't. It'll be interesting to see whether Frasier should have been swept out, or whether he and the whole team's morale will rebound.

You don't know how a man is going to do as head coach by watching what happened when he was under a different head coach.

Maybe he'll be horrible, but maybe he'll become a heckuva leader. Wait and see. smile

Obviously, I'm just a spectator here, but I'll be very interested to see if they consider the season essentially lost (which would indicate benching Favre and giving gthe other QBs playing time to assess them for the future), or whether they think there's still a playoff hope (and then they might think Favre leading the team under a different head coach is a viable option).

Surely someone in the front office has access to a calculator.

So just because he can't coach the defense doesn't mean he can't coach the whole team? Coordinators are typically hired to the head position based on how they did under a different head coach. You should at least have a general idea. If you can't coach up the players in a smaller group you are in charge of one would think if they were given greater responibilty that wouldn't change. I hope Frazier can make the best of it but it doesn't change the fact that his defense has been embarrassing this year. Not sure him receiving a different title is all of a sudden going to make the defense he has been in charge of all year play better.

The season is a wash, it doesn't really matter what happens this year now, the good news is Chilly is gone, he had his chance, he did some good things and many bad things.

Leslie gets a fair shot at this, if we all of a sudden are a way better team he should of earned a spot for next year, if we are the same lame team we were under Chilly then we need to wipe everything out and start everything fresh. If it wasn't Chilly's fault for all the horrible challenges please fire the guy who runs that show.

Leslie's defense has been really good for alot of years, where the offense was only good during Favres magical season. Don't get me wrong I'm down for a proven head coach myself, but in the very least Leslie deserves a chance.

I'm totally open for seeing what he can do and whatever moves he wants to make this year. If we decide to go with Junkson so be it, might as well see if he has panned out to be anything besides a career backup. Get Webb on the field for some plays too lets see what he has to offer.

God I hope whatever happens this team gets some spunk, we been pretty lame for many years besides last years magical season, even then we were pretty lame alot of the times except we came away with W's.

Well I listened to the press conference. It sounds like Leslie has no balls either and will be playing Favre, has absolutely no concern for building a team for the future.

Sometimes your paid what to say and who to play! He's going to be walking on egg shells for a while. Um, yes sir Mr Ziggy! wink

I think at the very least, frazier has a good relationship with most of the players, and Childress did not. he(childress) has the personality of a wet mop, and was not a very good coach to boot. hopefully the Wilfs will go after someone like Cowher, Gruden, or Parcells(proven winners) this offseason and not hire an unknown without interviewing anyone else(which is what they did with Childress).

    • Just caught a blip on the news about another new Invasive species found in Lake Superior ,,, What do we need to do ,, Put some of these invasives in the drinking water of our law makers water to make them do their job and stop  this contamination of our waters ,,, Im pro mining  but draw the line when it get too close to spoiling the clean unspoiled water of the BWCAW ,,, And you know whos gonna pay the price of Invasives in our lakes 
    • First possum I've ever seen in my yard..
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
