      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 .

So what do you guys think of the road course races? To tell you the truth, I used to absolutely, postively hate despise them. In the last 3-4-5 years (somewhere in there) I've actually grown to like them. I'm note sure why, they can only pass at like two spots on the course, but there is some pretty good bumpin and grindin... I know in the past everyone hated them, just wondering if thats still the case. Maybe its the fact the cookie-cutter tracks have become relatively stale (except for a select few) and there are not enough short tracks. Comments, thoughts, opinions?

Yep. Not a big fan of the road courses either. Good weekend to use the old DVR and fast forward through the race Sunday night.

I will watch the last 20 laps, like Daytona or Taladega that seams to be when the sht hits the fan and they start racing hard.

Yeah, it's racing, but do the drivers really know what they are doing.

I equate it to us MN walleye/northern/catfish/bass or whatever fishermen and sending us down to Mexico to guide for fishing down there. Yeah, it's fishing, but would we really know what we are doing.

I'll watch, but passing is very limited in these races.

They only thing I hope for is a rain free qualifying so Mr. Said can make the field. He gets screwed by rain every time he tries to enter a race and I like Boris. I am not a big fan of road courses, but it is something that has been a part of the series for a long time. I will be fishing so I wont watch it.

I would need a DVR to record the races dude. That and I am not at all impressed with the TNT race announcers. In my opinion, they just suck. Not nearly as exciting as the Fox announcers. No passing, plus boring announcers = something I can live without seeing.

It sure does make good afternoon napping time though. I guess that's why it's called napcar by some.

Hubby is getting Sirius for his birthday on Monday. Maybe I should give it to him early. grin

We can't stand TNT announcers, either.

I used to like to listen to some of these rather boring summer races on MRN while I'm out fishing, too bad there is no MRN in the cities anymore frown Oh, well I'll just have the Twins game on instead.

I was just thinking the same thing. Big hit in points.

When I checked the NASCAR web site to see the finish order, it differed from the fantasy finish order. I am hoping the NASCAR page is the correct one! Then my hit in points won't be quite as painful.

Tough week for everyone I think unless you got real lucky. I know I didn't!

In my work league I had the 3rd, 5th, and 7th place drivers until six to go when Harvick pretty much took them all out. I still had Sadler running well.....until he had a flat tire. Unbelievable. A few weeks ago all three of my drivers were in the same wreck just a dozen laps into the race at Dover. So, if anyone wants me to put a hex on a driver or three, let me know and I'll pick them in my work league. I'll probably be picking first in the draft in a couple of weeks so I'll have the pick of the litter!!

Definately a different type of racing on this course. Those bumps on the turns are crazy. Pretty good race, though IMO

    • Looks like ill be taken a buddy out this wed. I enjoy calling one in for somebody just as much as shooting one. Hopefully everything works out for this is only his 2nd year at it. Last year i took him and he shot a dandy bird with a 11 1/4 beard and 1 1/8" spurs and weighed a little over 23#'s.   
    • Very impressive and unexpected win. Would be nice for this to be the start of Houston’s playoffs jinx.
    • Way to go Don!
    •   thanks!!!  It's on the peg board!!!  I would have forgotten!!!!  
    • Bird down!  Ryan tagged out yesterday on the first day of the year he could hunt. It's a pretty nice Tom with 3/4" sure and an 8 3/4" beard. I'll get some pics up and it entered when I can.

Any guesses on the high score? I'm going to say 285 will win it.
    • Dandy Gobbler Don!
    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
