      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 .

Denny Hamlin ???

Recommended Posts

I really wonder why NASCAR did not fine him and dock him some points like they have done with others in the past??? confused.gif

This is off Jayski...

No additional penalties for Hamlin, Waltrip: #11-Denny Hamlin won't be further penalized for intentionally bringing out a late caution in Saturday night's race at Richmond even though there is precedent for it. No further penalty also is expected against #55-Michael Waltrip for intentionally wrecking #5-Casey Mears, NASCAR officials said on Monday. Hamlin was given a two-lap penalty when he stopped on the track with a cut tire with less than 10 laps remaining. NASCAR officials believed it was an intentional move to bring out the caution and allow Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch the opportunity to close on then-leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. A spokesperson for the governing body said during Monday's test session at Lowe's Motor Speedway that there would be no further punishment. But in 2004, Earnhardt was docked 25 points and fined $10,000 for intentionally bringing out the caution at Bristol. In the 2002 running of the All-Star race, Kurt Busch was fined $10,000 for intentionally spinning out Robby Gordon to bring out a caution. Meanwhile, Waltrip was parked with about 40 laps remaining when he intentionally took out Mears after Mears got into him a few laps earlier. Officials said the hit Waltrip took in points -- he finished 37th and fell a spot to 32nd in points -- was severe enough.(

Wow, I actualy agree with nascar. They saw someting the same way I / everyone saw the incodent.

I think nascar was letting boys be boys, we will see how they do in the future.

I don't know. NASCAR had set a precedent for a fine and point deduction when purposely causing a caution. Denny Hamlin purposely stayed out and stopped on the track to cause a caution, yet no fine or point deduction as NASCAR has done in the past??? Maybe they figure the 2 lap penalty was enough, I don't know. Does a 2 lap penalty = $10,000 fine and a loss of 25 points?

2 lap penalty doesn't mean squat in my opinion because if he would have pitted like he should have, he would have lost two or more laps there anyway as it is a short track. They just put him where he would have been anyway and didn't penalize him at all.

I agree with you on the issue. I really do not know how NASCAR can try to justify the no fine and points penalty.

It is no big suprise though. We have all been complaining about NASCAR's inconsistency for a long time.

And #88 would have won the race

Agreed!

Bowyer won. It would have been interesting to see jr. and Hamlin at the end of the race, but I still think Denny had the stronger car.

To bad Kyle couldn't accept the fact that jr. had a stronger car and settle for a close 2nd place finish.......oh wait a minute.

I will defend Hamlin cause he has earned me some money over the last couple years and is one of my favorite drivers. The guy led 380 laps and then had a tire start going down. Don't you think he maybe wanted to stay out and just see if he could ride it out for the best finish possible. That was one of the most dominating performances I have seen in a race in years. The tire was slowly going down, and then finally cut, it took over 10 laps for it to get to that point and with only a few to go, I would have stayed out as well. I didn't see it as trying to get Schrub closer to Jr at all. I had Denny and Jr for the race, and lost both of them within the last 20 laps of the race.

IMO...He still did not need to pull to a complete stop on the track, wait until the caution flag was thrown, and then drive to the pits. He could have accomplished all of that without stopping and intentionally bringing out the caution.

In hindsight that is all true.

There is reasonable explanation for why he

stopped on the track.

Yea, I read that. I agree that I don't think Denny did it at all for Shrub. I think Denny is actually pretty good friends with Dale Jr. so I don't think that came in to play at all. I think Denny was simply so upset that he had the tire going down, that not using better judgment simply got the better of him. It happens. My only real complaint is that NASCAR did not fine and dock him points as they have done in the past under similar situations.

    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college    http://www.munsingerclemens.com/the-gardens/munsinger-gardens 2 areas, up top and down by river
    • Free agency is far from a sure thing, if there are young centers out there (big if) you have to compete with maybe 10 or 20 other teams and pay way over what you should. You have control of nothing and are at the whims of a player everyone is chasing. Same with trades, very easy to swing and miss. By most account we were in on Ryan Johansen with the Preds but Columbus wanted Jones over Brodin and I don't blame them. 
    • Good stuff but time wiill tell. Not buying the "oh we might lose him as a UFA"...so what, with that kind of money we could buy just as good and younger to give us more of a future...which we desparately need to be thinking about.  Fletch is walking a tightrope and it is going to break IMO.
    • Come on BB, you are better than that. You as much as anyone know that ONE player doesn't make an NHL Team a Stanley Cup contender so why put that blame on him. Sure, a player like Crosby certainly helps, but we aren't talking about the money that Crosby is getting here either. Comparing Koivu's contracts to equivalent players with similar production is quite compelling. He has performed better than many of his peers for his current contract and with the lower AV of his new deal if he continues similar numbers it will be a bargain. I wasn't too happy about the NMC either, but I take that as a bargaining chip so CF didn't have to go with a longer term deal. 2 years is sufficient and I think it works well for both parties. You are right, there are many people out there with more knowledge about the market and what he could have gotten elsewhere and when it may have made sense to sign him, but the fact is you don't want to wait to sign him until after the season for if no other reason at all than to allow him to be a UFA and hear other offers. This will be my last post about the Koivu extension because clearly we don't see eye to eye on whether it made/makes sense, but I assure you there are a large number of "hockey minds" that are in agreement with me on this. Here is some afternoon reading for you: https://www.hockeywilderness.com/2017/9/20/16332552/mikko-koivu-contract-extension-minnesota-wild-criticism-overpaid-chuck-fletcher-cap-space
