      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.

    • Only made it out for one day for resident opener this last weekend but we had a great hunt. Took the day off and got out yesterday and battled the heat. I almost chose to call it quits early but went slow and took our time but had to take lots of breaks in the field. It was 74 degrees out and if I found water the dog got dunked. Was pretty slow day didn't see a single bird or shoot my first bird until 3:30pm. Ended up shooting all 3 of my birds in the same WIA in the span of an hour. Dog pointed a group of 3 hens in the same spot and then another by itself. Went about 30 yards further and dog locked up. Flushed bird it was rooster and dropped it on the first shot. As I shot 2 other roosters got up in gun range. With just one shell left in my O/U I rushed a shot going for a double, doh. Focused on where downed bird went down and sure enough another rooster gets up in the same spot it went down. Rushed both shots thinking it was the same bird I already knocked down. doh x2 Fortunately dog was able to retrieve first bird so was nice to put one in the vest for our first bird of the year. Took a water break and regrouped as that was a lot of excitement in a short amount of time and dog was overheated. Sat there for about 20 mins and let dog catch his breath. Started working field again and we no more and got started and dog locks up. Flush bird and its a rooster and he only needed one shot before he folded. Retrieved to hand and continued on.   Continue working to end of the property and saw a few more hens and one other rooster that I didn't want to drop over the water and thick cattails. He didn't fly far and hoped to get him on the way back as we walked side we hadn't covered yet. Dog locked up again on the other side and I let the bird get out a ways. Dropped it on the first shot and figured we were done for the day as it folded hard. It ended up being a runner and took off straight for the mud and thick cattails. We tried to track it, found some feathers so thought we were right on it. But once the dog got buried deep in the thick stuff it was just too warm. No scent going through there and he was getting way too overheated so I called him off the track.  We did end up getting our 3rd bird of the day with another nice point and retrieve. Was a good day to be out despite the heat. I spend the rest of the day scouting out other areas to hunt. Put about 350 miles on the truck and other than that one walk didnt see anything else. Did shoot to coons though and found a great set of antlers.  Unfortunately I forgot to bring my gopro and only took a couple pics.
    • I have had good luck with the eagle claw inline reel and love the freespool option. I have 3 of them and they all work great.
    • A few scrapes in the woods, cameras show the big boys moving at night still but they are around. Another week and I will start light rattling. I am  saving my best spots for Halloween on, unless a camera shows big boy daylight activity.
    • Think I saw somewhere that is Parise missed 10 games he can go on LTIR, between him and Coyle out 8 weeks we should be fine with the cap. Way to take one for the team boys. 
    • Great job for this kid!
    • I have to stop procrastinating, ice will be here before I know it! I made a little progress lately, I painted the inside, installed cedar accessory boards and thermostat and hopefully by this weekend have the rubber flooring down. I also ordered the termination cap for the furnace, should be seeing that in the next week or so. I also have a custom cushion being built to fit my bench seating. Got a question on rattle reels, I am looking at the all aluminum ultimate  rattle reels. Anybody use them? They seem a little spendy but not too concerned about the price, looking to see if there are any reviews out there. If those don’t seem to fit your need, what other brands have u used and feedback on them would be nice also. I will take some pics this weekend for a quick update.  
    • Sport's Show is a great place. I purchased the grey Frabil for under $200.00 But that was 5 years ago
    • You mean like Chicago is doing with Hossa?  Great idea...think of the space that would clear up!
