      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 .

Who do you want for the next Vikings coach?

Recommended Posts

Chilly has got to go. Never seen a coach do less with more. He is way out of his depth. The team was not prepared in any way, shape, or form on Sunday. He has no clue how to make a gameplan, much less how to use AP. Chilly has us on a collision course with a top five pick in the draft.

So... Who would you like to see as the new Vikings coach.

My dream coach would be Cowher but it doesn't sound like he is interested in coaching again. I think we need a really intense coach like him. Someone with cojones.

I'd also be down with Parcells even though I think he's an arrogant jerk.

Not a big fan of Billick but he might be our best available option.

What does everyone think? Your choice would be?

I personally dont care who they replace him with...BUT frankly if he was the slightest bit entertaining to listen to at the press conferences he might be seen as more exciting. I just hope our next coach is like one of these guys. grin

Go Eagles..."E -A -G -L - E -S ...unhuhghuhgh" thats my best Mike Tice impersonation...bring the guy back.

Unfortunately, I think we are stuck with Mr. Noodle thru the end of the year. Anything worse than 10-6, I think he's gone.

. In some ways, I hate to say it, but in some ways I wish we would go 8-8 or worse to get rid of this completely overwhelmed, completely underqualified goof.

Dennis Green, hate on him all you want, but players fought for him and he could fire em up. (remember also no matter how bad everyone hated him we were a playoff team during the tenure)

Bill Cowher-only wants to coach on East Coast ($$$ zygi's got it and it talks)

Jason Garret-not coming here, he makes as much as an OC as most head coaches

Gregg Williams-may be a little ticked off since he was supposed to be HC

Steve Spagnuolo-Giants D Coordinator is next big coaching name

Leslie Frasier anyone? Or do you think he is tainted by chilly

I don't think the play calling would change/improve much unless Frazier came with a new highly touted offensive coordinator.

I'm not ready for Marty-ball. Why would we want him? He can't win the big one either.

I agree to an extent. The viking need to get to a big game first, then worry about if Marty can win a big one or not

Marty can't win the big ones the reason you don't want him here? You gotta be kidding me. Ever heard of someone in the HOF named Bud Grant?? He couldn't either, but I probably don't have to remind you of that- we all know that. Heres some Marty turnaround numbers:

-------------------------------------------------------------

In his 4½ years in Cleveland, the Browns went 44-27 (.620).

The 4½ years before he became head coach, the Browns were 30-35 (.462).

The five years after he left, the Browns were 34-45-1 (.431).

In his 10 years with Kansas City, the Chiefs went 101-58 (.692).

The five years before he became head coach, the Chiefs were 32-46-1 (.410).

The five years after he left, the Chiefs were 43-38 (.531).

Oh yeah, 14-2 his last season in San Diego. Then he was fired. Why? He couldn't win in the play-offs. Guess who they played that beat them- the New England Patriots. He got the shaft in San Diego, and is an excellent coach and by far the best option out there.

Will he make it to the end of the season?? That's another good question. If Kiffin goes, Linehan has already been fired- Zygi might get an itch, and I don't think any of us would complain.

Nope, I wasn't kidding.

Marty is an awesome regular season coach, no doubt.

Get him here first. We'll worry about the big games later. Sounds good to me, till we actually get to the point where he's choking away the big games.

I guess I could go either way with this one. He would definitely help us get to the playoffs, but I'd have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach before every big game with Marty steering the ship.

How about Pete Carroll? He was an NFL head coach for one season so he would know what he is getting into going from college to the pros. He also runs a big time program and has to deal with the press on a daily basis.

No way Carroll is leaving USC and don't blame him...

Cowher is the one, and we might get him, I thought I remembered him saying he just wanted a break and would consider coaching again

What else does Pete Carroll need to accomplish at USC? He has National Titles, a lot of money, etc. and he has no where else to go but down from where he is now. He could probably make the same amount of money in the pros and have something to accomplish (turn around a program that he used to coach when he was young). It would make sense to at least talk to him. You never know, just like landing Tubby Smith for the Gophers.

I will put another call out for Green:

He does have passion for the game grin!

I will pass on Mr. Bacon Strip. We need a guy more like Bud grant than Denny Green.

Cowher would be a great choice. He demands respect but still seems well liked and is a players coach. And our current Vikes are a team that resemble some of his old teams - strong running game, emphasis on defense...

    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.
