      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 .

Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers. 

 

I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

The Pack played very Vikingesque in the first half, a bunch of woulda, coulda,  shoulda.

With an AP type of fumble going in.

 

Uran......

I came here to tell ya to shut it and not jinx things at half..........too late.

:)

I get loving YOUR team and all but I will never understand the average sports fans obsession with "despising" other teams.

What is there to despise?

Really what is there to despise?  Everything about your rival team is to be despised!!!  Cant stand their colors, mascot, city, fans...usually a lot of the despising comes from interacting with one of your rivals fans and being just annoyed with them and listening to them go on and on as to why their team is so great!!  Like listening to an Alabama fan tell us how great of a team they are and yada yada yada:grin:

That's also called jealousy.

Do you do this in your real life? Have you ever been in a bowling league or softball league? If so, did you despise the other teams in your league?

I'm going to be honest, there are only two teams in the league I despise. One is the Packers, the other is the Seahawks. The Packers, the reason is obvious, the Seahawks it is more or less Richard Sherman lol AND their sickening cocky attitude AND their hoards of bandwagon fans. 

 

I always root for the underdog in any game excluding the two above mentioned teams, and of course my Vikes.

Hey!   I've been a Seahawks fan since the beginning. We used to fly down from Alaska to SEA for the weekend:  the Washington Huskies on Sat. and the Seahawks on Sunday.  We ate cold oatmeal and hard bread for a lot of years before now. And I can remember in the old Kingdome when the floor would begin  to pulse and wiggle with fan cheering and raving!  It was scary sometimes.....I mean it....actually scary.

We ARE fans and sometimes we ARE cocky!

I can't argue with a die hard fan from the bad ol days lol You used to have the ugly jerseys and the only old Seahawk I remember is Steve Largent, one of the best receivers in history!

"Do you do this in your real life? Have you ever been in a bowling league or softball league? If so, did you despise the other teams in your league?"

 

I will say that when I play softball, just with my competitive nature or annoyance of certain teams, I do despise them to a point where when I play against them I take it a little more serious and want to win a little more as I hate losing to certain team more than others.  I usually don't have any relationships with players on those teams and there is usually a past experience to cause me to despise them.  But I don't take anything extra curricular serious enough to care past the game I am playing or watching...

I've also wondered why someone would obsess over which team another man may chose to support.  I've even known people to go as far as to start an entire thread about why people should ditch the Gophers.  its crazy, right?

LOL :)

 

I don't hate the Gophers, I even hope they turn it around sometime in my lifetime but I see no point in supporting a 50 year loser.

 

Plus Gopher fans are such a fun bunch to razz, they have such thin skin....;)

IMO I think it looks silly for Vikings fans to despise the Packers because whether it is or not, it always looks like jealousy.

You must be too young to remember back when they were never any good. It's all about perspective.

It's not jealousy, it's rivalry. Plain and simple. I hate those green and gold peckerheads. It's what makes the NFL so fun, not everyone pretends to be too good to hate their rivals.

Sure. IIRC once they changed out the balls they supposedly altered with ones at the supposed proper psi he threw for more yards and TD's than when the supposedly altered ones were in play.;)

    • I've been using gas grills at home and at the camper for some time now.  I do really miss the Smokey flavor of charcoal but the speed of gas to get a dinner done. I do wrap some hickory up in tin foil to smoke on the gas grills when doing ribs or other longer cook meat though. Lately I have been wondering how wrapping up some kingsford charcoal in tin foil or trying some in the smoker to get that great charcoal flavor would work? Anyone else ever try it for smoking on a gas grill wrapped in tin foil or in a smoking tube or in a smoker instead of wood?
    • It was hard spring on babies
    • Made it up Thursday night on Rainy. Went out first thing Friday morning on the Arrowhead Trail. It was a hot one! Kicked up 2 birds, the first would have been an easy first bird for the year if i hadn't been wiping the sweat off my face. Second bird had held it's ground and flushed well behind me. Heard no Dumming. Friday night was the Ruffed Grouse Society banquet on the Ash River. Prime-Rib was good. About all to say on the banquet. Saturday headed West on 11 and walked the RGS management trail along the Rainy River. Got one early, walked the loop flushed another. Quick miss. Came back and fished 8-mile and landed handfuls of cigars. Nothing worth bringing back. Jig n Minnow. Sunday morning, nothing. Came in at noon, watched the Vikes. Headed home. Grouse season's still early. Upcoming weeks should produce more birds! Good Luck Ya'LL
    • You must have an existing subscription for it to be $7 a month when you use it, and for getting it prorated? I'm looking at getting a tailgater but from what I was reading the cheapest package I can get will be $39.99 a month and will be billed in full month increments. But it does allow me to only pay by the month when I use it instead of having to sign into a contract and pay every month for something that will likely only get used a few months a year.
    • From my understanding males migrate earlier then the females. I've only seen females the last week and a half.
    • No Rule was made Dave, just asked for some decency from others.  Forgot who we were asking though.
    • We TOLD ya!!!  nya nya!!!      Good luck!!  Now go follow my recipe!! best pickled beets around!
    • I couldn't find a recipe anywhere online for pickling raw  beets (unless just refrigerator beets) so I must have been mistaken and will just cook them first!  Love them pickled but not so much just cooked!  Thanks for ALL the comments!
