      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.

    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college    http://www.munsingerclemens.com/the-gardens/munsinger-gardens 2 areas, up top and down by river
    • Free agency is far from a sure thing, if there are young centers out there (big if) you have to compete with maybe 10 or 20 other teams and pay way over what you should. You have control of nothing and are at the whims of a player everyone is chasing. Same with trades, very easy to swing and miss. By most account we were in on Ryan Johansen with the Preds but Columbus wanted Jones over Brodin and I don't blame them. 
    • Good stuff but time wiill tell. Not buying the "oh we might lose him as a UFA"...so what, with that kind of money we could buy just as good and younger to give us more of a future...which we desparately need to be thinking about.  Fletch is walking a tightrope and it is going to break IMO.
    • Come on BB, you are better than that. You as much as anyone know that ONE player doesn't make an NHL Team a Stanley Cup contender so why put that blame on him. Sure, a player like Crosby certainly helps, but we aren't talking about the money that Crosby is getting here either. Comparing Koivu's contracts to equivalent players with similar production is quite compelling. He has performed better than many of his peers for his current contract and with the lower AV of his new deal if he continues similar numbers it will be a bargain. I wasn't too happy about the NMC either, but I take that as a bargaining chip so CF didn't have to go with a longer term deal. 2 years is sufficient and I think it works well for both parties. You are right, there are many people out there with more knowledge about the market and what he could have gotten elsewhere and when it may have made sense to sign him, but the fact is you don't want to wait to sign him until after the season for if no other reason at all than to allow him to be a UFA and hear other offers. This will be my last post about the Koivu extension because clearly we don't see eye to eye on whether it made/makes sense, but I assure you there are a large number of "hockey minds" that are in agreement with me on this. Here is some afternoon reading for you: https://www.hockeywilderness.com/2017/9/20/16332552/mikko-koivu-contract-extension-minnesota-wild-criticism-overpaid-chuck-fletcher-cap-space
