      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 .

I don't know, haven't heard him on the radio for a while though. I would love to know what's up. PA kinda makes it sound like he's on vacation, but hasn't it been a good couple of weeks?

He went through a divorce recently, and that junk can catch up on you, especially when you are a public persona.

Give the man a break. They are a good duo - they have a nice thing going.

I think PA has some real talent and a great work ethic. Do you realize he's at the track just about every night in the summer announcing?

Dubay (IMO) just doesn't have the skills compared to other major market radio personalities. I would consider him a sidekick at best. When PA is out, the show suffers tremendously.

I heard Dubay got deathly sick from overdosing on the Minnesota sports Kool-Aid and had to go into rehab for CDS....Chronic Denial Syndrome.

Now if we can just get rid of Paul Allen along with Dubay, the PA and Dubay show will be much better! grin

Give the Common Man the 9-2pm slot!!

Exactly. I'd rather soak my teeth in kerosene and light them on fire than listen to the Common man.

I'd rather wrestle an alligator in a phone booth, than listen to the Common man.

I'd rather have a rabid marmot attack my lower extremities than listen to the Common man...

Other than that - he's ok, I guess. LOL

Dan Cole is a whole lot more entertaining than Tom Mischke on KSTP 1500,who air's in the same time slot.Common's bit does get a bit redundant,but does have the sports in it, to a point.Mischke is, well,you fill in the blank...

No offense to any one else,but that guy is too off the wall for me.Some of his phone conversations with folks make me go, 'what the $#&% is this guy on the radio for?' Just my opinion, doesn't have to be anyone elses. KFAN is on my dial until Garage Logic airs. Sorry for hijacking the thread here,with the Mischke reference.

Love em or hate em you listen to em all on the FAN. Common can be pretty funny, but he does get depressing. He loves sports and teams and hates em at the same time...all part of the bit I guess.

PA is talented but that guy would push his grandma out of the way for a dollar. Can you trust anything the guy says? Despite being plugged into the sports landscape we all know how his prognostication has been going...

Dubay-totally agree with what others have said. Struggles on his own.

Every personality on the FAN has things I don't like and things I do.

Star-funny but sophomoric.

Sludge-Immature and shallow but can be funny in a childish way

Barreiro-probably the one I like the most. Interesting guests and tastes but can go off on certain topics for no reason.

Hartman-let someone else get a word in, is never wrong. Not the overrunning 'homer' so many other MN media types are.

If you have it in you to give Common about 6 months his show is will become entertaining. Not as good as it was a few years back but still good IMO. Half of what he talks about are old bits and inside jokes for those that have been listening for years. He is an acquired taste. The one I can't handle is Hartman. I would rather listen to his Dad. At least you can laught him.

I feel the same exact way about Common and Hartman.

I hated Common at first, but now I actually enjoy his show, I sometimes find myself laughing out loud while eating lunch.

Having listened for years, I have few thoughts on the subject...

Chad Hartman - Did a friend in the business get this guy a job or what?? You probably can't find a better example of "It's not what you know, but who you know" out there. This guy doesn't belong out in public, much less on the radio. A little game I play is to try and change the station before his bumper music starts. This has involved such things as diving for the radio (on more than one occasion), and my favorite, once I chucked a hammer in the nick time and ka-pow! That was a close one. Too bad nobody was around to witness my magnificent save executed to perfection.

Ducky & Bunny - I'm in agreement here with what everyone else has said, S.T.A.L.E. Including PA pushing over his g'ma for a dollar. After a while of listening, you just start to see them for who/what they are. 'The truth comes out' I guess you could say. Lately, I feel like I'm just listening to a 3 hour long commercial. A rarely thought provoking, but occasionally entertaining one. I do like PA's occasional reference to local places though, as they're usually places I'm familiar with.

Common - For most who like him, it didn't start out that way- and they weren't shy about it. At least that's what I've found. Personally, I've never not liked him. If he could occasionally sprinkle in some seriousness/insight/sincerity into the serious matters it would go a long ways for him.

Barreiro - The most solid of the bunch. Well spoken and usually gets to the heart of the matter. I don't always agree with him but he let's you know where he stands, without 'Hartmaning-up' at every turn. His topics are usually somewhat interesting and his Friday, Done as a Society segment is usually entertaining.

Can't stand Common, I've tried listening to him time and time again and can't get into it. He's an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly and I have no clue what he's doing on the radio. I usually flip it over to Jim Rome or just turn music back on.

    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.   
    • Yes. And if you got to the southwest part of the country they have some of the best wine on the planet as well. I was introduced to German beer there in the 80's and it was a learning experience. Bars with room temp kegs and either Dunkel or Licht beer. They know how to do it right.
    • I haven't seen that happen in the collagen casings I have used but if it seems to be an issue maybe try vacuum sealing any left over casings until the next time.
    • I hear ya Dave !  I spent close to 3 years in Germany and drank a lot of different brands of German beer and never had anything taste as bad as an IPA. In our town of around 100,000 we had 3 breweries and if you went 20 miles to another town the odds are you would not find the any of the 3 beers but completely different breweries. 3 beers always for the most part...Weitzen (wheat), Weise ( Normal) and Pils and all only had 4 ingredients and no preservatives. 
    • Mine lasted 5 years, then broke on the lake, but I got two new ones the week before. Lucked out I guess.
    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
