      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 .

Aces In The Hole

FIRE MCFALE.................

Recommended Posts

Just when I thought Mcfale couldn't get any dumber, he goes and trades Mayo for Love........MCFALE you FAILED us again! This is the 3rd strike for him! I hope the fire him! Strike 1 went to the Ray Allen for Mabuary trade, strike 2 is the Brandon Roy for Foye trade, now strike 3 will be the Mayo for Love trade.........

Couldn't agree more. The front office has no idea how to build a team. Not to mention draw fans with some exciting players. Whoever pulled the trigger on this deal had the gun pointed in the wrong direction.

I was excited to see that OJ Mayo though and dissapointed this morning when I found out we traded him for Love. Love just looks like a sluggish big man

Yea, we drafted Ray Allen and then traded him for Starburry. Worked out well huh? Look what he and KG did this year? Imagine having them together their whole carriers?

Frankenberry is a looser and should go. Hear Hoiberg on KFAN this morning and he loved getting OJ, said he got up and found out about the trade in the paper. Huh? You work in the front office and you found out about this trade in the paper? Anyone else see a problem with this? Why is one guy making all the choices?

at least they got rid of some of the other bad moves. and added a couple of nice pieces. they still need a star to compete. not that he's a true 'star', but hinrich(sp) may be out of a job.

You didn't get the MEMO and Crystal Ball before the draft that tells you how 18-22 year old kids will pan out in the NBA?

I like the trade and think we addressed over all needs quite well.

Of course the media jackels and know-it all fans will tell you different.

Solid trade. Miller can ball and Cardinal isn't that bad and can shoot from the outside. Collins will be a back up at center. We got rid of 3 guys that were dead weight. I like the trade.

Just watched the press conference, was nice to hear their rhyme and reason why they traded O.J. What is Cardinal though, 3 years pro but is 37!! Man, they could not get rid of him in college. MAc said if Chalmers would have came in there would have been no room for him anyways. So I guess they can hope for the future with those pics.

This wasn't Mayo for Love. In essence it was Mayo for Love & Mike Miller. Mike Miller is a really good basketball player. He is not a superstar. He will make the Wolves much better.

I would not trade Mayo for Love. However we don't know if either Love or Mayo is going to be a good or great player. We do know the Wolves got a solid player from this trade and this is alot more than they have gotten in the vast majority of their prior first rounds picks.

I can understand the dump of salary stiffs but it would be nice to see some exciting talent on the team. McHale just hasn't made very many smart decisions in his day. I guess it's not just him making the decisions but he probably has the most pull or the final vote. He's hasn't proven that he can do the job well so I think it's time to bring in someone proven to take over.

Why do you trade a guy that looks like when he matures that could be an all-star. There is nothing exciting about love, he might be a good player but I can't see him being all-star. Yeah great we got miller and so on what does that do for us?? Just enough wins not to get a elite player in next years draft!!!! Just crappy enough to not make the play-offs. You got to go for the guy with the up side, come on we are in a rebuilding mode anyways!!! You take the best player available and that was OJ and hang on to him and build around him and jefferson! Yeah we dumped salaries, but we got some crappy ones back too. I just don't get this team!!!! And don't give me that we got some nice piecies from memphis, this trade would have been good if we were a play-off team and needed a few players to make that jump to contend, HELLO we are not that team.

Is there something I need to sign to get on the fire McHale band wagon?

I would have fired him years ago. Why bother worying about a high draft pick with that chuckle head running the show, he is just going to trade them away anyways.

I heard rumors that Mayo wanted to be in a big market. Sounds like he wants to be the center of attention and wants the limelight. If this is true, he could be a headcase...like Marbury. Well, he won't get the big market in Memphis and lets see what happens when he becomes a free agent. If Memphis is still bad and he turns out to be as good as people say then some team will pony up some riduculous money to lure him away. I didn't mind the trade either. The team helped themselves in many ways. And I think Love has good pedigree in hoops.

I totally agree with you A R Johnson! I thought we are suppose to be in a rebuilding stage of our franchise. Trading Mayo doesn't make sense in the rebuilding process. We get Miller who is 28. I don't see many more years left in those legs. Then we get Love who will play the power forward, which means Jefferson is going to have to play the position he doesn't want to play. And that is all we need is to get our star player not happy on where he is playing. I guess we could put Love at the center spot...Personally, if we are rebuilding, I rather be a crappy team and get a higher draft pick next year, then to be a team that is so so and we get a mid 1st round pick.

As the back of my Twolves jersey says FIREMCHALE!!!!

When you look at the numbers we really didn't free up much money. Kind of a bad contracts for bad contracts swap. Except we got a role player out of our lottery pick. woo hoo! sick

Why cant love play the 3??

Maybe because he might be matched up to players like Pierce, Lebron, Dirk, and Carmelo. Just to name a few. I think he would be better to gaurd a power forward who plays down low instead of a forward who can go to the hole or shoot the jumper.

Mike Miller and Brian Cardinal have 2 yrs left and Jason Collins has one year left. Marko and Buckner have 3yrs left and Walker has one year left.

Love and Mayo haven't even played a NBA game yet. Give them a couple of years.

I don't know that much about Mayo, but it seems some people were leary of a little trouble in his past. I know I'm tired of head case draft picks like Christian Laetner, Stephon Marbury, and Isaiah "J.R." Rider. Seems they should look at the mental aspect harder. There are no crystal balls. Only time will tell.

With the way mayo acted when we picked him initially I am glad he didn't end up with us. Him and his "posse" looked like somebody let the air out of their tires. He has headcase written all over him.

    • Lookin' good....spatchcock that beatch!!!     http://reeltym.blogspot.com/2013/11/the-ultimate-turkey-smoked-on-barbecue.html  
    • I just spent 8 days pheasant hunting in SD last week. Almost every walk in area, CREP area, some waterfowl production areas were cut. Why is that?
    • You wait 'til Delphonic whips you ragged and shows ya his soused-up IQ. But, we MUST remain on the bean soup topic. Mikey is trying to copy it down. I know he can cook it right. Must remain on topic.....
    • You must be as bright as the woman we sold a ham to one time years ago at the grocery store I worked at. She asked the owner of the store who also worked behind the meat counter how to prepare the ham. He told her to put a can of 7up in the bottom of the pan and put in the ham and roast it a 350 degrees for whatever length of time. She looked at him puzzled and said "how do you balance the ham up on top of the can of 7up?" We laughed about that one for years.... Good for you!
    • Copy and paste and put it in yer little Google "recipe box" like I do. Amazing what computers can do.  Other than that, I no longer gives a rat's azz anyway.
    • You do realize that was never the point, right? The problem was not so much that the threads get off topic but that the great recipes you guys were posting weren't being indexed and no one could ever get back to them and put them to use. This post is great and any time I ever want to make bean soup I can just do a search and find it easily. It gets harder when a bean soup recipe gets posted in a good morning thread or something like that. Just sayin".
    • Doesn't stay on the grate real well that way. 
    • Manburgers!!! The only way to cook meat....juicy, grilled burglars!  grill it, baby, grill it!!  
    • Maybe try simmering it over a charcoal bed with some chunks of apple or cherry for a 'real" smoke taste?
