      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 .

Instant Replay

Recommended Posts

In my opionion Baseball should not use instant replay. Replays would really slow down a game. It is also a part of the game to have the manager argue with the umps. In football there are only 16 games per season and the chances of a few blown calls costing a trip to the playoffs justifies the reviews. In baseball they play 162 games and the blown calls will even out over a season. During the playoffs a blown call can eliminate a football team in one day. Baseball series rarely come down to one play miss called determining the series. If baseball goes with instant replay it should only be during the playoffs and only for weather the runner beat the ball to the glove. Trying to second guess balls and strikes would be painfull to watch. Even trying to determine if a hitter went around or pulled up on a pitch should be left to the umps.

the thing with questionable calls right now, is that the umpires usually get together and talk it over and then they explain their decision to whichever manager is ticked off afterwards... which all takes up time.

instant replays could actually speed up the game in some of these situations.

My pale hose have been "hosed" on a few terrible calls this year that instant reply could have easily overturned. I would favor something like football with a red flag and so many issued per team per game, maybe 2 or 3. One does not seem like enough but I think you have to define what can and can not be replayed.

I thought they had a chip they could put in the baseball, and a sensor on home plate, and the foul poles and a computer then knows whether it is or not a home run, strike/ball. It was discussed that this type might be what will be used. But they were still going to use the umps until there was a questionable call, then go back and look at the computer.

a good team can/and will overcome a bad call period. Move on a play the game regardless of the call.

I could maybe justify it for a home run. But not for balls and strikes. What do you do on a 3-2 pitch. That one call, on one pitch could be as big as a home run depending on how its called.

I think it would be practical if used on home runs and close plays on the bases. I would limit the amount of replays allowed to each manager to one. And if they are right, maybe give em one more. I see they might try it on an experimental basis in the Arizona Fall League, so it will be interesting to see what happens.

Sportscenter had a thing on instant replay in MLB today. I've often been impressed at the fact that, for the most part, the umps make the right call. If a call is questionable, they huddle and make a decision. That decision is final, and sometimes it's kind of fun to watch the manager and ump bump chests and spit on each other. It's part of the game.

As stated, good teams play through a bad call and carry on. I say keep instatnt replay out of baseball and let the umps make the calls. All umps run home plate differetnly. Some have a big zone, some have a small zone. Part of the game is the pitcher, catcher, and hitters figuring out what the ump is going to give them.

Play the game, keep the replay out of the game.

i really dont believe that baseball needs this. People make mistakes, and i believe that baseball should be the same as it is now. There is no reason that we need it.

If replay happens i hope they do it in a way that does not prolong the game to much. Baseball is a game about momemtum and moevement. I would hate to see the game slowed down because of breaks for the replay booth...

Could have aided the Twinks last night, I would be all for it, if it helps get the calls RIGHT then it is well worth it. Like was said about the A-Rod homer off the steps, it took a replay of 4 seconds to decide it bounced off the stairs. Compared to the robust umps waddling out to around second base, to decide what they had already CALLED. That took what 2 minutes for them to get the game back going. I think baseball has enough money to pay an Ump to sit up in the booth. Do they have a back-up ump at the games??

I like the live interaction and having the umps who I think do an overall darn good job. I'm just saying I'm a purist.

But then again, I'm not a gambler so I can see some logic to having the replay. Overall, I don't like them in hockey or football so I am against it in baseball.

There is no backup ump at games. I am not sure about playoffs...i would assume they do have backup umps then.

Replay would be alright in my eyes...but it can't delay as much as it does in football.
