      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 .

Mayweather vs. McGregor

Recommended Posts

Love to see that one...and maybe, once again, McGregor would get his mouth slammed shut. He's the Rousey of the male fighters. But.....I wouldn't bet on Mayweather in this one, as I think Connor may have the harder hitting edge...sure like to see this one live, though! ;)

I have the same opinion on the harder puncher, but I think Mayweather is a whole package. Defense and learning from round to round is why he is so darn good. Most of his fights consist of him getting peppered a few times in the early rounds but then he starts incorporating his footwork and once that straight right starts finding the mark it's about over for the other guy.

Dana says, never gonna happen.  Boy, thats a lot of money to say no to.  It would be a horrible fight and I would feel sorry for anybody shelling out the $50plus it would run.  Floyd fights, if youre not a true boxing fan, are terrible, now for the true boxing fans, this fight would be terrible and still would be poised to take home a whopper of a pay day.  Terrible idea for a boxing match, glad its not happening.  Only way I would pay to watch these 2 in a ring is if they were both getting knocked out.  Connor would have zero chance, not even a punchers because he cant throw more than a hybrid right straight/hook and his footwork is worse than Balboa's.

In a pure boxing match, McGregor gets killed. Kickboxing he has a slight chance and in the cage, under MMA rules I think he'd take it to the ground and end it there. my .02

Make the fight boxing rules, with dirty boxing and hammer fists legal. Have it in an octagon, 5 five minute rounds. Instead of boxing gloves, they wear mma gloves. Those rules would help in McGregor's favor a little bit, but Mayweather still wins in a landslide.

I would have to imagine Mayweather would be an overwhelming favorite, so of course I'd put money on McGregor.

 

$100 PPV perhaps?

Last I checked the lines were

Mayweather  -900

and McGregor +500

 

So I would put 100 on Mcgregor for the chance to win 500

Rather than 1000 on Mayweather to win 100

Another cynical, bloated Mayweather circus, another nail in the coffin of boxing. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the Pacquiao/Mayweather fight. A virtually enending parade of douche bag "celebrities", the Burger King King in his entourage and a lackluster fight.

This will once and for all settle the debate. Who is the best boxer? A pro boxer or someone else.....

 

Even if Mcgregor cant win, he also cant lose. After determining what he will take home in pay hes already won.

 

I expect it to be another disappointment just like the Pacquiao fight.

Cant compare this mayweather fight to any other, this isnt even boxing.  Did any of the main governing bodies sanction this bout?  I dont even see the entertainment value as its just going to be a circus and reminder that any money spent watching it, a portion would go to these turdfaces.

Alphabet soup "titles" ruined boxing. There's at least a dozen or so sanctioning bodies, and some of those have several different categories of belts per weight division! It's an absolute disgraceful joke! Can you imagine how much the boxing landscape would be if there was only 1 championship belt per division? Even the UFC is starting to water down their championship. Seems like each division has an interim champion now

Growing up I got to see Ali fight on ABC television with Howard Cosell doing commentary.  Then I believe boxing went to HBO.  Now it is Pay per view.   The average person has no contact with boxing these days.   I can't name a single active boxer right now outside of Paquio and Mayweather.

I think it died when the boxers got a guaranteed purse vs what I seem to remember was the winner got x and the loser got x for a fight. Not near the incentive when you make the same no matter what you do but then again part of me suspects they know who will win the fight before it happens.

Maybe an "Inter-continental" belt is on the line here.....

Boxing died the day Buster knocked out Tyson.

 

I bet you havent watched a fight since Toney was a middleweight.

Anyone watch the press conference yesterday? Over 19,000 people showed up! These next few days will be much more exciting than the fight itself ($99.95 by the way). McGregor's suit was the best!

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
