      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 .

Redeem team vs Dream Team (92)

Recommended Posts

I would take the Dream Team of 92 any day. You put Jordan in his prime on any team and its good night. Plus the 92 guys were a better class of guys as far as their want to win.

That was my thoughts exactly, I think that was the end of the NBA at its peak with that generation of players. I'd give credit to this team/era of players, I am sure they are overall better pure athletes wheter due to supplements etc, but that team was the definition of a team. I remember watching one of the qualifiers or something, and Bird had basically sat out the entire game due to his back and the crowd chanting LARRY LARRY, and Magic came and grabbed him and pulled him to the scorers table. Better players better personalities. Gotta love Barkley telling Angola or whoever was whining about NBA players to "take their A** whoopin and go home"

Teams are trying to beat the Redeem team. The dream team, other teams were just glad to be playing them. Other players wanted their pictures taken with the Dream team to show their families because they knew the race was for the silver. No teams even tried to beat the Dream team. Dream team 110- Redeem team 70. They would teach these pups a little about defense!

Dream Team all the way...Jordan-Bird-Magic-Barkley-Ewing-Stockton-Malone-Laetner-Drexler-Pippen-Mullin-Robinson......they would eat-up the Redeem team........just look at the names and all but one is a sure bet hall of famer....plus the big men (Robinson/Ewing) they have would just whoop the redeem teams bigs(Howard/Bosh).....forwards would go to Dream Team (Barkley-Pippen-Bird-Malone-Laetner) and the guards tuff call edged by the greatest b-ball players to ever play (Jordan-Magic-Stockton-Drexler)....on paper there is no debate

I think it would a lot closer then you think Bird, Magic and others were past their prime in 92.

And to be honest the competition wasn't all that great back then as a matter of fact If you replaced Carmelo Anthony with Garnett I'd take 08!

Im sorry but the athletes these days are so much better physicaly that this Olympic Team would win. Even if the Dream Team had Jordan.

I do agree that this team has half the class and heart and 20 times the money.

some were definatly getting towards the end but still Robinson and Ewing would eat up the redeem bigs then you have Jordan still at his prime and Pippen both great defenders by the way with Stockton and Malone still going strong at that point and a young kid named Christian Laetner with alot of potential......tough call but I still go with Dream Team

I agree, both teams playing FIBA rules...There is more athleticism and power in the redeem team but the bigs on the dream team would rule...Better shooters for the Dream Team. Would be a heckuva matchup though!

The dream team members also realized defense was a part of basketball, would shut down Redeem Team then just take over and score at will.

put the dream team in this olympics wld they win by 50-60 points like they did back in 92? now if redeem played in 1992 they probably wld win by 50-60 points. the foreign players r gettin better due to fiba, european leagues and spreadin of basketball all over world.. if dream team '92 r playin in decades of 00s i know they wld lost a or 2 game to other foriegns team. if i had to pick the matchup between redeem and dream team i wld sa either as both are good team and represent the USA that all i care about.

I don't know that the Dream team would lose in todays game if they were at the same ages/ability.......think about it they have Jordan a guy that led his team to a season with like 10 loses in an entire NBA season.......I think they would still roll through the Olympics......and I agree that the Redeem team put in the 92 tourny and they probably would have whooped up on most of the comp except they might have had a tough time with Croatia with Drazen Petrovic and Toni Kucok........fun to debate.......

maybe not lose any game but close games than back in 1992. at least they won the gold. hopefully usa dominates the game tomorrow against pau gasol and spaniards...

i had a thought what if olympics allowed pro to play in olympics back in 60s-80s. that wld be awesome to see bill russell, wilt chamberlin, kareem, oscar, and petey and many more greatest player to play in oly .

i think top to bottom, the 'redeem team' is far superior. and i am a hug bird fan. bird, mullin, and magic were on the downside, and laettner? howard is a stud down low and would run circles around ewing. robinson might be a nice match up though. kobe and micheal would cancel eachother out pretty well. paul over stockton, pippen's d verses wades o is a good match. i still think the second unit is where the new guys get the win.

ty the way, did you see what how much of a punk mello made himself to be against argentina? i never liked that guy.

I can see the arguments on the redeem team being better, but I steel fell that the original is still the best. Plus it wasn't chalked full of "thugs" like today's NBA. They all think they are still gang bangers or in the ghetto and it really cheeses me off on it. I loved watching the NBA, used to watch all I could no matter what team and now, I just watch the Wolves and even then not all of it. Just can't stand how they all carry on anymore.

one thing about the dream team was there age. in 92, bird, magic, mullin, nique, and ewing were all getting old. the redeemers really only have kidd significantly over 30. while i agree that the old guys would have out classed this years team, i really don't think it would be much of a game.

Nique wasn't even on the team......mullin still was a decent shooter and didn't Ewing go to the finals around this time?? Magic was still solid as he was just diagnosed (remember the all-star game) and could still ball.....Bird didn't play much cause his back......the young guys would have their hands full with the Dream Team!!

when a guy looks at the 92 team compared to 08,,, not even close. Dream Team of 92 is above and beyond the talent 08 has, not even close. Howard would dominate?? Come on,, your talking two hall of famers,,, Hakeem and Ewing, plus Barkley. Jordan and Ervin are in my list of top 5 players of all time. Bird and Malone are close. You have a 3 point shooter who is one of the best ever in the NBA,,, Mullin. Stockton,The-Glide,and Pippen??? No way does 08 even hold a candle to the DREAM TEAM.... If they played 10 times,,, 9-1 DREAM TEAM.

How about if you took the Redeem team and swapped out a few bigs? Maybe add KG and Duncan to the mix?

It would be interesting to see the two play. The Dream team would be better shooters and team players, but the Redeem team has superior athletes.

    • In general,  fishing the breaks starting at 32ft then shallower is a good start. You may find a fish here and there durring the day but I find the bite is at its best just before the sun hits the horizon and an hour before and after. These fish along with crappies will swim up and down these breaks at this time of evening to feed. Good luck, its timing durring the year to get a good bite and its different every year. The Croix just does not like to give up those toothy critters in the winter on a consistent manor. 
    •   yup.    its changed the forum game for sure.  i can easily find specific bodies of water/areas on facebook in a much easier to participate with format.  posting pictures, replying, etc etc.    i also think like you that in the interest of trying to keep everything in order, many message boards such as this one spread themselves to thin with so many subforums it because almost impossible to navigate. 

      was a moderator of another webforum that has been 5 or 6 years defuct.  their problem wasn't facebook it was that it had 150 active members but over 200 different forums.   it was ridiculous.  i had no say, the site got so little traffic that they shut it down. 

      for HSO/fishing mn (annoying 2 sites now) all of the subforums for different areas are void of info, but you can find plenty of info on facebook.  (faribult fishign reports on fb for example has 10 new topics and almost 60 posts in just a handful of days.  never got that in this forum.    the bigger ones this is for sure an issue but easily navigable.   it is amazing that people under their real name will be so unhelpful and hateful. 
    •   I couldn't agree more.  The Facebook pages are just ridiculous....all of them.  Surprising to me, given the fact that people are using their real names and what not.  Back when this site was popular, it was a great resource for all things hunting and fishing, and there were a lot of great friendships made.  Now it is but a shell of it's former greatness, but I'd sure like for it to get back on track!
    • hey dave.................one of your star QB's apparently cut off all his dreads...................oh my!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Nice warm breakfast dinner is on the menu for us tonight.    Hasbrowns, eggs toast and bacon of course. 
    • 1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.”   Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action.   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • You self proclaimed foodie people are a great help. Thanks a lot. 
    •   Geez Dave that 's easy. Since you sent the slave to work in a snow storm! Have her pick up dinner on the way home for you as well!
    •   I have checked a couple.  the stupidity and one-upmanship and language in most of the posts are unreal.  not for me.
