      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!


Walsh is Gone!

Looks like the Vikings finally released Walsh today.  Not sure how but his termination papers got leaked today and it seems clear they made the right decision by releasing him.  Looks like he was wide left again.

I have no clue who Kai Forbath is but I like him already!


He's a guy with a career 84.1 FG %.

Blair was at 84.2%. Yeah, let's let that sink in...


BUT... Forbath was 34/35 on PATs last year for the Skins, so that's obviously a step up for us. He's honestly a decent kicker, but has his quirks, too... For example, he can hit some long FGs (50+), but can't get touchbacks regularly. Maybe he's a head case. So at worst, we just fired one head case and took on another one with a marginally worse FG % (and ended up with over 3 million in dead cap space in the process). At best, we get a guy with similar FG percentage, hopefully less yips, and someone who won't blow PATs. Really a "we'll see what happens" thing.

I actually wasn't totally on board with getting rid of Walsh for the exact reasons pikestabber mentioned.  There just aren't that many decent kickers out there.  It was probably a lateral move at best.  The only advantage is that we got to enjoy the feeling of kicking Walsh to the curb, he probably landed a little wide left though.

Decent and damaged are two different categories. He doesn't have any confidence in himself, and won't until he can get over the miss last winter against Seattle. I'm glad he was sent packing, even though it was a month too late.
