      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 .

Told ya!... "Favre"

Recommended Posts

Yep, I said the same thing. He has to keep his name in the news.

If he mentions coming back to the press, I win $20 from my Packer Buddy! I just won it!!

If he actually comes back, I win an additional $100 from my Packer buddy!!

ESPN's Chris Mortensen said Wednesday that a Packers source told him the 38-year-old Favre told coach Mike McCarthy in the past two weeks that he has the itch to play.

"The Packers have no reaction," team spokesman Jeff Blumb told The Associated Press.

Favre's agent, James 'Bus' Cook, didn't return a message seeking comment. Packers general manager Ted Thompson and McCarthy were on vacation.

Favre retired March 6 after a 17-year career.

Cornerback Al Harris said on ESPN's "NFL Live" that Favre made similar comments to him.

"I know he has the itch to come back and play," Harris said. "If he will or not, I don't know."

The Packers plan to use Aaron Rodgers as their quarterback for the upcoming season, and he's been leading the team through organized team activities and minicamp.

Rodgers has been groomed to take over for Favre since being selected in the first round in 2005, but has played sparingly.

"Aaron is our quarterback," Harris said. "Brett's retired. But if he wanted to come back, there would be some guys who wouldn't mind it. I would welcome him back with open arms."

According to the ESPN report, the Packers would be reluctant to open the door for Favre because "Brett retired for the right reasons, even though I know his family is tugging on him (to play)."

Favre has two years left on his contract at an average of about $12.5 million per season. The Packers placed him on the reserve-retired list in the spring so his salary does not now count toward the cap.

Favre's commitment to retirement has been questioned since his announcement. That talk resumed in mid-June when Favre withdrew from the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe, scheduled for July 11-13.

Tournament spokesman Steve Griffith said then that Favre had to miss the event because of a scheduling conflict.

When he retired, a teary Favre said, "I've given everything I possibly could give to this organization, the game of football, and I don't think I've got anything left to give And that's it. I know I can play. But I don't think I want to."

But less than two months later, he told reporters he might be open to returning if Rodgers was injured.

Favre, a three-time MVP, leads the league with 442 touchdown passes, 61,655 yards passing and 160 career victories. He started 253 consecutive regular-season games, more than any other quarterback in history. Including the playoffs, his streak stands at 275.

Rodgers, meanwhile, has stirred up controversy himself this week. In a Sports Illustrated article, the quarterback said he didn't need to prove anything to the fans.

"I don't feel I need to sell myself to the fans," he said in the article. "They need to get on board now or keep their mouths shut."

Brett wants his release from the Packers so he can play with the Vikings. This will be the final piece you guys need for your superbowl run... Think about it..

He just needs to get his name in the lights. Favre likes to get his ego stroked. Whether he plays or not this year...we will hear about Favre for YEARS yet on how he may or may not play.

You might want to get a whole barf bag ready Sandmandd. That first game is going to be tough. They either retire his jersey and we are going to hear about Favre for 3 1/2 hours or he will be suited up and we are going to hear about Favre for 3 1/2 hours. Plus who is going to be able to understand all the play by play with all the sobbing, sniffles and tears in the announcers booth. cry

What will be interesting if it is Farve and Tavaris starting for their teams, it is very possible each guy will throw 3 INT's but one will be a gamer, who is trying things no one else has the guts or ability to try, and the other will be a young, quarterback making bad decisions. confused

Wow, you guys are like a bunch of teenage girls with all your gossip grin

It's all rumors till he shows up at a camp, dressed in pads, till then it's nothing.

All of you know [PoorWordUsage] well that you would take Favre over TJ any day! There's no way you win 10 games with him at the helm wink

That's insane to say the least!

Either way Packer Fans are very uncomfortable right now being left in limbo by this EGO maniac.....and if Favor suits up for somebody else Wisconsin will never have to worry about their lakes and rivers drying up with all the tears that will be flowing...LOL.

Go Vikes!

Wanderer don't kid yourself you'll be watching EVERY SECOND of the Purple no matter who's at the helm.... grin

That's just silly talk of Favre playing for the Vikes. The Vikes want a new stadium dont they?

I agree with fishyguy,I think we all do, that first game is gonna be long and winy with all talk directed towards Favre.

What I'm really worried about is the St.Croix river. With all that crying, as mentioned before, The lakes and rivers are gonna rise. and I've never seen high water that time of year. The fish are gonna think its armageddon

So an ESPN reporter heard second-hand that Favre told the coach he has an itch to play. But neither the team nor Favre's people confirm that the conversation ever took place.

All this yak about Favre needing the spotlight is silly. Maybe he does and maybe he doesn't, but there's nothing in this story that indicates he's looking for all the attention.

Just because he has an itch to play doesn't mean he's going to play. If I was that good for that long at something I loved to do that much, you bet I'd have an itch to play the year after I retired. And the year after that, and the year after that.

Rip the newsies for taking a single piece of heresay and manufacturing a story out of it, not Favre.

I think the Vikes are the ones very uncomfortable since they were thinking they MIGHT have a chance at beating The Pack if Rodgers suits up, but now that's not so certain since they may be going up against something called Brett Favre instead.

Be afraid....be very afraid. grin

Anybody that says they'd take T-Jack over #4 needs to have their head examined! There is no logical explanation whatsoever that would convince anybody (besides a purple Kool-Aid drinking numb-skull) that T-Jack would be the better starter for the Queens this year. Good luck with that.

BTW, GB favored by 3pts in the first game. Could be more soon.......... grin

Agreed, the name Favre and T. Jack dont even belong in the same sentence. However I would be disgusted to see a purple and gold #4 jersey with Favre on the back. I'd take T Jack over Farve just because, as a Vikings fan, I hate Favre with a passion!!!!!

Besides the Vikes are gonna win the division this year anyways. AP will just run all over everyone anyways grin

Anybody want to point out where in this thread anyone said T Jack is better than, as good or even close to Farve? I think we can agree on the fact that T Jack has a ways to go to enter in the same conversations about talent as Favre. If it was my statement that got everyone going on that, read it again and you should see that it was a statement about his treatment by the announcers. I think we all can also agree Favre is capable of throwing up a few picks. Anyone see the NFC Championship last year?

No, I didn't...........I have no idea what you're taling about grin

Like it or not, Monday nights game will be filled with Favre talk and comparisons, but guess what........he's one of the greatest (notice I said one of, let's not turn this into a "who's better than Favre thread) QB's to ever play the game. They did it with Marino, "horse-toothed jackass" Elway and Montana, and they'll do it with Peyton and Brady when they retire.

As far as tears go, I'm more afraid of the Mississippi coming over the banks from all the tears of the Vikings fans when they lose on Monday night. That is going to be a hard pill to swallow when Rodgers lights you up and AP is held to under 100 yards......... grin

Anyone want to make an avatar bet on the season series or who has the better record? Loser keeps the other teams logo for a year? First come, first serve..............grin

Well, when someone says they don't want Favre that tells me they'd rather have T-Jack. wink

I think we can also agree that Favre is capable of throwing up a couple TD's. Anyone see that game in MN last year?

    • What are they running per pound?  I would be all over it if I wouldn't have just got done doing a 12 pounder on Monday . It turned out awesome... Here is what I did. Smoke setting for 2 hrs (may be able to get by an hr with the smaller brisket) Bump temp up to 225 and leave uncovered Double wrap in foil at 160 internal meat temp Pull off at 200 internal meat temp, wrap it in a towel and let it rest for 1 1/2 hrs in a cooler
    • Redirect your anger toward NCHC because its their fault this game is not televised. BigTen network and FSN offered to air it, but NCHC chose to keep it "in-house". Its all a money grab. They are hoping that people flock to their streaming service at the tune of $25 just for this game. Nope, I've got better things to do.
    • Scrapes and Rubs started popping up first week of October. The young bucks are doing most of the activity and most of it done at night or right at dawn or dusk. Monday night had 3 bucks- spike, fork and a 6 pointer come in to light rattling at 6:50 pm. They worked 2 fresh scrapes that I had put buck urine in and the fork and 6 pointer had a 5 second sparring bout then went on about there business feeding together.
    • It took Garnett, Sprewell, and Cassell about 15 games to gel. We'll have a much better feel for this team after about 10 games.
    • The walleye bite remains strong!  Report is very similar to last weeks. Walleyes are staged in front of Pine Island, Graceton Beach and Zippel Bay in 18-30'.  Anglers sorting through a few small fish for every keeper.  Most anchored up with jig and shiner.  Pink, pink/white and gold have been the best colors. Reefs holding fish as well.   Rainy River anglers finding success up and down the river.  Schools of shiners coming into river randomly right now.  When they do, the walleyes are close behind.  Some days excellent, some days catching fish but not a slam dunk based on whether shiners are moving through.  Vertical jigging tipped with a shiner while anchored is the go to method. Some anglers trolling crankbaits with success as well.  Smallmouth bass, pike and crappies showing up.    Up at the Northwest Angle, in MN waters walleyes are crushing jig and shiners. Orange and chartreuse were the hot colors this week. Big pike being caught trolling minnow baits.  In Ontario waters, minnow/shiner have been effective off of points at depth of 18-26' while anchored or trolling.  In addition to walleyes, crappies on fire and jumbo perch active!  Some muskies being caught trolling.  
    • Well, some good things, some bad things... We didn't pull of the win on the road as I'd hoped, but I think there were some positive take-aways... Defensively, we aren't fixed, but we are looking better. Taj jumped off the screen last night with his aggressive D. I think his presence will help a lot! We played good defense at times, but it was VERY streaky. It seemed that throughout the night SA went up by 8-10, then we buckled down to pull with a bucket or tied it up, repeat... Butler looks like he needs a few more games to gel with the boys, but I think his addition can't be overstated. If even for one game, he seemed to light a fire under Wiggins. If we can get some form of consistent 3 point shooting, we will be talking a lot more about wins than losses this year!
    • Way to go B$G 10 hockey, probably one of the greatest rivalries in hockey, Gophers and Fighting Hawks, this weekend and it's not televised.
    • I saw a couple smalls bucks sparring this morning. There was a small doe near them and one of the bucks chased her around for a little bit. 
    • I know they drum quite a bit in the spring but I've been hearing drumming this fall. I'm not hearing as many as I do in the spring. But I'm sure hearing a good number of them drum  Are they  searching for a mate in the fall?
