      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 .

An AP Observation...

Recommended Posts

So after watching Adrian Peterson play the last 2 years, I am convinced he is truly a great RB and if he stay healthy has the potential to be one of the greatest.

But sometimes I think he looks for the big play too often, especially when running between the tackles. A few times in the last couple games there was a hole, but he missed it because he does not take the ball at full speed. AP uses this so that he can have a burst of speed when he turns the corner or hits the open feild, and it is very effictive. But when running inside I just feel he should be taking the ball and moving vertically right away.

When the line is "Zone Blocking" he does need to stutter step and be patient, waiting for a seem to open up, but I saw once early in the game today (before my nice nap) that a trap was called, and a hole had opened up but Peterson missed it because he did not take the ball at full speed.

Just a little nit picky thing but has anyone else noticed this?

Well the announcers mentioned something today about the coaches telling him to take what he can get more often instead of looking for the home run. Today i noticed a few times where he ran it up in there real hard where the cutback lane was wide open. I don't know if you tell a runner like AP this kind of stuff. Its a tough one because the home run ability is what makes him special.

I was asleep for a good portion of the game so I guess I missed the anouncers talking about him.

Agreed though that he does need to have his own style and I think that play calling holds him back. We need to spread the feild 4 wide, or trips and a slot opposite and give him the ball more. Or go tight and swing him out to the flats.

i agree it seems pretty obvious that spreading the field and letting the best open field runner in the game have some room to run would make sense. From what i've seen Childress for whatever reason is not going to do this.

All I know is a lot of potential was wasted today for me in fantasy football, as well as for many others around the world. He has the highest ownership percentage in my roto, H2H, and salary cap league, so there were plenty of disappointed fans. Today should have been a cakewalk against that defense. They Vikes have hit some long plays, but still not enough to loosen things up for Peterson. He's still seeing a lot of guys in the box, and something is different because he found a way to shake free from loaded lines last year.

6 games into it last year he had 670 and 5 scores. This year he has 563 yards and 3 scores. This year it has taken him 21 more carries to get there. I would have figured with more touches and an expanded offense he would have done more, cause last year at this time he was still splitting carries. Frustrating as a AD FFB owner. Close to on pace but I feel like he really hasn't broken any long ones. I won't rush to judgment yet, he's due for some home runs and the Vikings will need every point they can get.

I think what we are all seeing is the loss of their FB Tony Richardson from last year. He was in the probowl for good reason. Thomas Tapeh was brought in to replace him and has been on the bench. A good FB can make or break a RB's season.

Some research was done by on of the after game show and said that most of the break out runs he had last year were done on a single back set up. I root for AP because he's a viking and not on my fantasy team. It seems as if we abandoned the run and concentrate more on the horrible passing game.

I think the Vikings coaching staff ruined the guy. Last year he was the best natural running back in the league but Chilly thought they could improve on his footwork. That's what they did during the off season is work with him on improving his footwork. I don't like the result. Turn him loose.

Well he is in third place about 80 yds behind the leader in yards! It really doesnt seem like he has done anything, but he is 3rd among rb for total yards so far!

    • Well he could just hum along with cume by later. Whatever, 
    • It will be interesting how many deer get harvested this muzzleloader season. 
    • I have been one of those that would use the oven to finish. I do not care for the smoke smell on my hands when handling the sausage. Did it seems to take the smoke residue off the skins using this method ?
    • Was out last night pulling cards and checking on blind for this weekend. A lot of bucks hitting and making new scrapes and does still going through them. Hoping still a few out running now they have had two weeks of no one really pushing them.
    • Then you can tell that to all the professional chefs that use sous vide.  
    • My new project involves putting my big boy pants on and upgrading from the 4'x7' panel on the fish house to a 8'x24' for the house. Believe it or not but I had to unhook it from the house for fear of starting a fire due to making too much heat. I haven't quite figured out how to control it yet. 
    • We have a gas furnace too. But if it's sunny we run the entire house on solar. Heat and electric. It may not sound like much but in that 8x12 we have had days where we need to open windows. The one thing it won't do is throttle down or turn off until the sun goes down. I know it's a duh thing but a consequence you don't think of at the design phase. It also works great when you aren't out there  it sure is great to come out to the house after work and the house is already at 60F or warmer   It was only an experiment for a larger project but turned out pretty cool. Something to do. 
    • This all sounds pretty darn sweet. You may want to start making and selling them.  So, what heats the house at night when the sun goes down?  Or did I miss something? 
    • Imagine just a black box with 2 holes at top and 2 at the bottom with a green house sheeting over the top. All 2x8 cedar and a piece of foam board. 
    • I have a pc type fan in each outlet pulling air through the panel. These are wired to the small solar panels that are behind the plastic sheeting. These are then wired to a snap switch that closes the circuit at 80F and off at 65F. So the fans won't turn on unless they have power supplied by their own solar panels and the temp inside the panel is 80F+. And ya just a pvc trim piece for a cleaner look. We did find that we needed to add just one layer of a ziplock bag to the outlet holes. Just any piece of thin plastic would do. This covered the holes to stop backfeeding at night. And once the fans kick on it's not a problem.  I don't but it hasn't been bad at all. And if you drive north all day it actually works and the house is definitely warmer than the outside once we get there. The whole setup I have maybe $100-$200. The larger solar panel and dual battery system is a whole different deal.
