      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 .

Potential Trades

Recommended Posts

Mostly scoring league, 2 WRs 2 RBs and 1 TE each week (plus QB, K, Def)

I have

Ronnie Brown

Willie Parker

L McClain

F Jackson

S Moss

TJ Housmanzada

Reggie Williams

Heath Miller

Offers on the table:

1) Randy Moss for Ronnie Brown

2) K Winslow for Heath Miller and L McClain

3) Reggie Brown for W Parker or McClain

4) Braylon Edwards for Parker

I dont think anything is worth doing right now. #1 and #2 are intriguing. Free agent WRs are few and far between. Darrell Jackson is probably the best out there. I need a 3rd WR for bye weeks and TE bye week, Reggie Williams is worthless.

#1 I wouldn't do it without Tom Brady in NE.

#2 Miller has been a stiff- killing me on my team right now, but McClain is getting a lot of the goal line carries and is doing real well. I wouldn't make that trade unless you get another RB in return.

#3 Not sold on the Jags ability to score TD's. I don't think I would do that either.

#4 Most intriguing to me. Cleveland seems to be one game from going with Quinn and I gotta feeling he would be going to the big guy (Edwards) often. And with you needing WR help that might be the best bet.

Another thing I would look for and it would be a FA pickup. Bobby Engram was Seattle's leading receiver last year. He has missed the first 3 games, but is coming back this week. And with their WR corps in a world of hurt, he will put up numbers immediately. If he was available in your league I would pick him up and drop Williams and wait a week or two on the trade.

Good luck!

Is Lance Moore WR for NO still a FA....if so pick him up as he goes against the Vikes D this week........

All the trade options you listed are great for whoever is getting your guys but not good for you..

option1: you lose your starting RB for this week

option 2: looks good but you need McClain this week and I heard Winslow was injured...not sure if that is true or not

option 3: Reggie Brown caught his first pass of the year last week and Jackson is a better reciever on the team

option 4: not a bad deal if you think Edwards is going to catch the ball this year........

who is F Jackson RB???? sure there are better options then him....Mewelde Moore will be a starter this week

Only option I would consider is #4. And I am not real high on that one. Sure hate to get rid of top RB's. But that is the only one that has equal value on both sides, the other ones seem like lopsided trade that aren't to your advantage.

F Jackson plays behind M Lynch in Buffalo. W/ Parker hurt and Brown on bye, I needed 2nd back last week. He gets a lot of passes and attempts and was playing the Rams. I lucked into a TD from him!!!!

I picked up Kevin Walter from Houston. Easy schedule and playing besides Andre Johnson should get a lot of single coverage. Not great, but an improvement over Williams.

Both FA receivers mentioned were already on teams.

Holding tight for now. Another HUGE week, lead the league in scoring by almost 10% over the next highest.

Brown and Bear defense have been HUGE surprises.

I keep waiting for someone to drop an average WR or someone to emerge. TJ Hous and S Moss are both off in week 10. Can be patient until then.

    • I live in central MN but northern MN is still home. Winter is my favorite season. It was always tradition back in the day just before Thanksgiving to deer hunt Sunday ice fish Monday. We are well before that this year up there. They have been driving sleds from Baudette to Waskish I'm hoping it only gets better
    • Lol, yea don't think so.
    • Far from traditional, but either way, believe me, not complaining one bit. I'll take more comfortable days on the ice, in the woods, and looks like another day in the the boat tomorrow over extreme cold and deep snows of yesteryear. Having a lot of hobbies help bide time between waiting for good ice, and the warm up of spring.
    • I tend to agree. Although for the first 20 years or so of butchering with the old timer in our group that had his own equipment, his meat bandsaw,which was probably from the 50's I believe had basically cast iron parts and a regular steel blade.  After use everything was washed and wiped with a food grade mineral oil. 
    • Even if it's boiled in a vacuum sealed bag?
    • That was a complete embarrassment! There’s no way they can justify starting Croft next week! He is terrible!
    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
