      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 .

UNREAL STAT!!!

Recommended Posts

been around this game for sometime--- but this stat blows the mind.

The last 5 times the Cubs have been in the postseason,, they have been elimanted by losing 3 in a row. 1984,1998,2003,2007,2008. The statistical odds of that happening are unreal,,, like 1:500,000 at least when you do the math. I love cheering againist the Cubs,,, cause IT ALWAYS works out!!!!! What a pathetic franchise. Bring on 101 baby!!!!

might I add,,, that's 6 in row lost in the postseason under SWEET LOU. Alfonso Soriano--- come on--- what a joke--- check out his Postseason stats. A.Ramirez= joke.

People say they didn't see it coming,, it's been coming for 100 years people.

The worst sports franchise of all time--- continues.

That is 1 reason to combine the 2 Ill teams and that way they would only be disappointed 1 time instead of 2.

might even put a better product on the field.

Jesus Louise.....Cubs have 2 div titles in a row and best NL record and are called pathetic or joke?

Not worth the ink I'm typing with to debate that hateful post.

Hey we have to pick on somebody and your team is it again. Your team has been steady, however I am sure you want more than just a first round appearance each of those years.

Hey Geno,

Twins arent much better the past few years either in the playoff's. 2002, 2003 & 2004 were all one and done in the playoff's also, why isnt anyone mentioning that stat?? Could we call that pathetic or a joke??

I was hoping the Cubs would of made it farther but their bats went silent.

I agree of course that they stunk it up again by not hitting or scoring or progressing further but let's give some kudos to the Dodger pitchers too. On any given day........

Not hardly! and a terrible analogy.

Let's compare a Big Market team with all the money in the World and NO Worlds Series titles in 90 years to a smaller market Team that spends wisely putting us in the Playoffs regularly while winning 2 World series in the last 20 years. I could be a little more critical of the Cubs but I think we get the point.

Go Pack... grin...LOL

Pier,

You know what is really sad for Twins fans? I heard the Chicago radio guys talking about them and they were saying Thank God Polad is so cheap, could you imagine the Twins with a few hired guns on the team. They were saying that he has the money but won't cut loose. We will have to see what the Rays do in the next few years. A team like that with a 43 Million dollar payroll has got to go no place but up. Those players will want to get paid, like the Twins, either by their current owner or the highest bidder on the free agent market. Why is Carl so cheap? I don't really know the Twins history.

He is an old banker from way back. He could squeeze blood out of a nickel. He thinks he can take it with him. He earned it, so he is not going to give it away. How do you say "ULTRA CONSERVATIVE?" crazy

I'll be short and sweet; the real reason the Cubs are the disgrace they are,, and have been for 100 years,, is becasue fans put up with it and turn mud into gold day in ,day out.

You have to win it all,, to get gold. If your happy with 2 DIv titles in a row and the best record in the NL,, way to go.

NOt me, I like Champions. My team has 2 in the last 21 years,,

I know I sound like a broken record but.... Thank goodness for an owner like Carl Pohlad. I don't believe it's even humanly possible to run a Sports Franchise any better then the Pohlad's have run the Twins the last 10 years.

Wow Pier,

You seem to be in the minority, at least on this site. Everybody is always moaning about the Twins low payroll and if they had this or if they had that. I guess there has to be a happy medium from teams like the Yankees and Red Sox and the other end of the spectrum. I would hate to think one more bat in my line up may have made the difference in a playoff game.

Well to be a devils advocate here, what has money done for the Yankees??? It has been proven time and time again that money is not relative to a great team. I am very proud of the Twins going as far as they have using a great farm system. I bet if you asked any team out there if they would like to trade farm systems and scouts they would answer YES. I am with Pier, I don't think whining about spending money will do anything. If they put a quality team out there each year for less than anyone else, more power to them.

And Windy how far did the pickups that the WS aquired take you guys, I forgot. confused

How much profit do you think he makes from the Twins?? That's an honest question and not a smart a__ one either. I think the team is also managed very well and they keep me watching them every year, but most fence jumping fans can't stay interested forever with mediocrity.

Skitter,

You are not going to make me talk about the 26+ World Series Championships that the Yankees have won, are you? LOL I hate the Yankees and don't like the BoSox much better but money gets you players and 9 times out of 10 they seem to always be around the playoffs. Again, I hate the Yankees! It is great when a team like the Rays come out of nowhere and go from worst to first but those stories are far and few between. I hate the way baseball is going with free agency and big money but it seems like most teams are doing it.

Mud,

Thank you for enlightening us.

I think you just changed my mind.

No longer will the Cubs be my favorite team.

It will be WHOEVER is playing YOUR favorite team.

Please don't force me into being a WSox fan now. (eh Windy?)

CNYTim,

Gonna have to watch it at home - a little racy for work you know.

    • The CO that checked us on LOW this winter told us if you go out to the bathroom or a smoke it is OK, if you go next door to visit it is a ticket...
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
