      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 .

What will Favre be traded for?

Recommended Posts

I don't think anyone will step up and give Green Bay much now. A week ago maybe. Green Bay is stuck with a tremendous PR problem right now and their worst nightmare just walked off the plane yesterday. Other teams know they are stuck as well and will play a waiting game to get him on the cheap. My guess is a 3rd rounder or lower (maybe even 2nd day pick) just to get him out of town. Green Bay is in a lose/lose situation here and I love it!!

i'd say a 4th or 5th round pick...that would be the best scenario for both teams...whatever team gets him wants a veteran qb and GB say they don't want him so they could get a new young player.....any team that gives up more then a 4th is pretty dumb since he will only play another year or two....any team willing to trade for favre think they have a shot at a superbowl...thats the only reason to get the guy at this stage of his career.

Throw in some Johnsonville Brats and you have a deal. They need to be the beer and cheese version of of the brats though.

I say it's about a 10-percent chance that he'll be traded.

3rd round pick at best at this point.

I'd say it's NOW a 90 percent chance he'll be traded, released or RETIRE AGAIN!.... grin

3rd rounder still.

I'd say he's going to be release or traded. Check out this story.

Favre, Packers in stalemate

FROM NEWS SERVICES

Last update: August 5, 2008 - 1:08 PM

If the Packers don't want him the only solution is to trade him away to the Vikings, otherwise they will just be continuing this sideshow … read more and causing further distractions for their team. Favre's mere presence is Green Bay is enough of a distraction as it is to the Packers. The possibility of trading to another team besides the Vikings seems highly improbable as Farve would most likely not report nullifying the trade and sending him back to the Packers. The Green Bay front office knows exactly what they have to do, but acknowledging it seems to be the hard part for them.

So Favre is unlikely to practice today, hoping the team will either release or trade him.

Favre spoke to ESPN's Chris Mortensen after last night's lengthy meeting with McCarthy and said the "best thing for this team is for us to part ways."

"We're at a stalemate," Favre said in a story posted on espn.com. "Mike and I both agreed last night that me being out there is a distraction and will continue to be a distraction. We all know the reason I'm here is because the commissioner [Roger Goodell] reinstated me so we have a lot of things to figure out. It's simple and complicated, both at the same time."

Favre told Mortensen that the team rejected his request to talk about a trade to a team within the NFC North. The Vikings appear to be the leading contender to acquire Favre, but were cleared by the NFL of tampering charges on Monday.

Favre admitted Aaron Rodgers is likely to be the team's starting quarterback under any circumstances.

"I'll practice my butt off, if it comes to that, and I think we all know what the end result will be, but this probably isn't going to work," Favre told Mortensen. "And I truly understand that if I was in Mike's shoes, I'd see it basically the same way he sees it, I'm sure. And I think if he was in my shoes, he'd see it my way. I think we both agree on that.

"They want to know if I'm committed but I want to know if they're 100 percent committed. The problem is that there's been a lot of damage done and I can't forget it. Stuff has been said, stories planted, that just aren't true. Can I get over all that? I doubt it."

The Packers have offered a $20 million package to Favre to remain retired, which he rejected.

"They can say they welcome me back but, come on, the way they've treated me tells you the truth," he told Mortensen. "They don't want me back, so let's move on. I don't know where it's headed. We'll see."

About 1# of Limburger cheese would be even-up.

Seriously, if the Vikes even consider him, they gave up too much. What would be the very best way for Farve to go out as a Packer?.... Go to the hated competition and pad his interception record...that is how!

Trade him to an AFC team with no OL, and put the ball back in Favres court. End of Debacle!!

Just because GB won't trade Favre to the Vikings doesn't mean another team can't. wink

I'd like to know what type of poison pill would have to be included in the deal to prevent another team from turning around and trading him to the Vikes. This could get interesting....

the best part is any team wanting to trade for favre is gonna need him to change his contract...if he says no then the team wanting him is screwed....i don't think he's gonna want less money to play for a team he doesn't even really want to play for in the first place.

he's talkin to the jets and bucs now...if they don't come to some sort of deal the packers are screwed...favre could just be messin with the idea to see what he's worth to other teams...but if he don't want to play somewhere them teams won't trade for him.

i just want this to end and see where he ends up...if he ends up a vike lets get it done...if he ends up somewhere else get it done.

All these posts on the issue, and nobody showing any love for T-Jack?!?!?!?

He's our quarterback and he's the one who will have a 75.3 passing rating this season. That's gotta mean something to you heartless fans! smile

Oh well...if anybody sees any purple #4 Favre jerseys let me know...even if he doesn't end up here (and he won't) I want to wear it when I visit my in-lawsin Wisconsin....and not take it off until I'm back in MN! grin

I think after today's announcement that the Pack simply won't allow him to compete for his old job that he will head back to Mississippi and call it quits. I don't think he ever imagined that it would come to this and I also don't think he will play for the Jets or Tampa. The Pack stood their ground (as dumb as that may be) and now this is all but over IMO.

The more I think about this it almost has to be a conditional pick based on how Favre does.

No team is going to give up a 2nd round pick only to have Favre decide he's retiring again in week 3.

So I'm guessing something like a 3rd rounder if he plays X amount of games and 5th rounder if he doesn't meet some criteria.

I would like to see them now turn around and trade him to the vikes. That would really mess with GB, thinking he is out of there hair, just to return to the same division.

    • We had a tire blow out a few weeks ago while heading to Zumbro Falls so I just put 4 new tires on the camper last week. Decided to go with the new Goodyear Endurance tires. I also packed all the bearings while I had the wheels off.  
    • Has anyone tried using a picnic basket? 
    • Last nites work. 13 qts stewed tomatoes, 5 pints juice and 15 pints salsa!
    • I'll second that!! Gotta get some more cob cawn today myself....
    • From the  picture it is a male yellow headed blackbird; IMO there is even a faint white bar on the wings which may be what you describe as "the ring on its back" and the black smudge under and behind the eye.  I can't tell about the bill, but on a cowbird the bill is quite heavy;  not nearly so stout on the YH blackbird. Immature male yellow headed black birds are not so bright yellow as the adults, and there should definitely be some young of the year fledged by this time of the year.   If the picture is not accurate then we will need a better photo to do better than that.  IMO This picture does not show a brown headed cowbird.  Most cell phones will take a better picture and if it is tame enough please post another or even better a couple more.  The more different poses the better. Yellow headed blackbirds are almost invariably connected to swampy areas, especially those with cattail fringes.  They also tend to be around in groups, especially groups nesting in the same swamp not mixed in with red winged black birds.   The females of both species are quite drab, and quite distinct from those of the cowbirds.
    • I do live by a river and have lots of RWBB, maybe it will yellow up. That's a very distinct rusty brown ring on it's back though, I didn't see that in any of the YHBB pictures.
    • This furnace has 2 pipes. The larger pipe about 4" is the air intake is supported through ring #29. The smaller pipe inside the larger pipe about 2" is the furnace exhaust connected through the larger ring #30 and screwed to the raised portion of ring #29. My furnace a vintage Hydro Flame Convection with dual direct vent, needed no power, and used a pilot light. Had the identical 2 pipe direct vent as yours. I built 2 rings similar to your drawing. Had 2 major issues: 1. Anytime the wind exceeded 20 mph, my pilot light would blow out even when the furnace side of my house was parked to the leeward side due to wind eddies.  2. At the exhaust cap which was about 1 3/4" from the side of the house would scorch the side surface above the cap and the moisture from burning Propane (1/2 pt. per 10#) would freeze on and below the exhaust when temp went -10 or below. Second year I re-designed using the Pipe Cap photo 1 from Menards for under $10. I cut off the bottom half at the black line and cut a hole on the outside flat surface for the exhaust pipe. This was my fresh air intake. Also filled the inside of the cap with a disassembled expanded metal filter from a motor home stove top exhaust filter.  Photo 1   Secured it to my house and ran the exhaust pipe through the hole in the end. Attached the exhaust pipe to a 2" x 3" aluminum gutter down spout used as a chimney. Photos 2 and 3. Totally solved my issues. You may also find a similar cap to photo 1 for the exhaust instead of the pipe. Most of the caps I was able to find had a 4" connection point so you would need to modify to 2" or whatever size you exhaust pipe is. How ever you do it, cover all openings with a screen to keep the Mud-daubers out as they love burned propane orifice area to build there nest.  Photo 2 & 3
    • sure looks like YHBB.  open fields and swamps close by? They like to hang out where the RWBB do.  Cannon SX30IS is pretty cheap online. 35 power zoom. good for still shots.   
    • Going to bait tomorrow with fryer grease, bread, dog food, cherry frosting, peanut butter, soft candies, raw white sugar, and popcorn. I am throwing everything at them tomorrow, hopefully the bears like the variety!
