      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 .

NFL tampering

Recommended Posts

Rumor has it that the Packers are filing for tampering by the Vikings. Apparently Bevell and Favre have been having inappropriate conversions.... Probably about the next party barge on 'tonka and hooking up with Chmura and Winters after his induction this weekend. HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

How could the Packers possible know this? Nice futile coverup Thompson. Like we'd give you any draft picks or players you would want. How about Sharper? You can have him, plus the 6th rounder we got for loser Troy Williamson. The entire NFL is laughing. HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

Good way the pass time during the All-star break.

I don't think they'd get rid of the entire Vikings organization for this. grin

Maybe it'd be a good excuse to finally move them to L.A.

If we didn't follow the Glenn Taylor model and they don't actually find a napkin with credible evidence on it we should slide on this one without any damage.... grin

He was talking to the offensive coordinator. Good luck proving what they were talking about.
And dont forget the two had a prior relationship before the coach came to Minnesota. How stupid is this coordinator.

And sorry We need not to have him.

I thought T Jack was the man. Why would the Queens who have no weakness need a wash up QB? laugh I guess maybe bevell doesn't feel T Jack is ready to lead the purple to another title, smirk opps I mean a title.

This tampering story is funny, whether it is true or not. Tough to prove, I would think, unless something is recorded or someone admits it.

The Green and Gold can't handle the thought that their God is considering playing for the Purple.

I would take him as quarterback on the Vikes. Why? He is better than what we have now and I would love to see the faces of all the Packers fans when their beloved son makes a run for the border....

Sorry Limit! We dont NEED a washed up QB either grin

4wanderingeyes....your quotes are laughable. Washed up QB??? Brett threw for 4,155YDS..28TD's..15INT's..and had a QB rating of 95.7 last year. That hardly sounds like a washed up QB!!!

What are your thoughts on the Purple this year? Your predictions have gone from 10-6..11-5..12-4..13-3 SB in 3 years..to 2 years..to next year????

Keep those quotes/comments coming!! You keep the Pack fans very entertained!

If he isnt washed up, and is that good, why isnt the Packers excited and jumping up and down that he wants to un-retire?

I think the Packers have a good young team without him, and they know that Favre isnt the one to take them over the edge to win the Super Bowl! The reason Favre had such a good year last year was because he had a lot of good players around him to make him look good.

A washed up or mediocre QB can look good if he has 3 good recievers, a good OF line, and a good running back. Just look at what Jeff George, Brad Johnson , and other QB's did for the Vikings when they had Jake Reed, Randy Moss, Chris Carter, Robert Smith. The Packers and the Vikings would be taking a step backwards by having Favre as their starting QB. Both teams are young and are building for the future. Favre may be a little better then Jackson or Rogers, but to bring Favre into either of these teams would effect the long term goal of both teams to build for the future!

I still predict Vikings to be a 11-13 game winner this year. With the Packers right up there as well.

He's not washed up. The organization is tired of his indecision with retirement. Plus, Arod will probably not re-sign with the Pack if Favre comes back. It's time for Favre to move on. If the Pack release Favre (which they won't), the purple would love to have the guy.

You said it...the Packers have a good young team (youngest in the NFL last year). Favre is more than "a little better" than Arod & TJack. Tjack & Arod never would have done as well last year if they were the starting QB's in GB.

You can't compare Favre's season last year to Jeff George in 1999 with the Vikes. The Vikes were coming off a 15-1 season and other than Moss (who had the best rookie year ever in 98), the rest of the purple mentioned were seasoned vets. In fact, it's pretty silly to put Jeff George in the same sentence.

I agree that the Pack & Vikes should do well this year. I don't see either winning more than 10 games though (unless Favre ends up playing again).

Back on topic, if the Vikings did tamper with this and tried to get Favre ilegally, I say anyone on this team that had anything to do with it should loose their jobs! Wilf is trying to run a class act team, and I would like to say he has turned it around pretty well, until this!

The Vikings have a bright future ahead of them, they have alot of good young talent. If someone in the front office messed up our future draft picks, I hope they pay with their jobs, and a fine!

I agree with you wandering. I would hate to see what happened to the wolves happen to the vikes. I would be [PoorWordUsage]'d as heck with that and heads should roll for sure. I'm still going with they are friends and cry baby favre was probably looking for some advice. Who knows.

And if the Packers are just making this up, then fines and loss of jobs should take place over there as well!

So at what point does “I am a real American” come blaring through the speakers and the Hulk comes walking out of the tunnel to save the day.

……..this stuff is getting out of hand.

Could we just play some ball.

I think Green Bay threw this tampering garbage out there to deflect some of the bad press they have been getting with this whole Favre unretirement thing. Nothing wrong with Bevell and Favre talking as long as it isn't a recruiting conversation on Bevells part. Proving this tampering thing will be next to impossible.

Or.... Maybe it's a Favre/Green Bay conspiracy setting the Vikes up so if we get caught we'll lose a few much needed draft picks in the next couple of years. YEAH that's the ticket.

That is verry possible. I just cant see taking a stupid risk at what they are accused of. Especialy when at the most he would only be offerd a 1 year contract by any team.

Bevell and Favre are good friends...I didn't realize wishing someone well on his endeavors after football was tampering.

Favre is on the verge of being washed up. Heck, 28 plus teams could use what he did last year. But who's to say that's the Favre you are going to get. Favre has been pretty average since what, 1999? He's been the best of the worst and the worst of the best.

    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
