      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!

    • There is no way Koivu doesn't get more term and $$ in free agency, not a lot more but he gets more. Marleau is trending down and got more money, Hansel got 750 less and is not in the same league as Koivu. I was hoping for something like 4.5 or 5 but what he got at 2 years is very reasonable. He is a lifelong wild, our captain and a great player, we have no immediate replacement, he makes our team better for the next 3 years be it 1/2/3 center. This isn't something to get upset about, scandella trade sure, aging parise sure but that had to be done, not getting a young center sure but that can sometimes be out of our control because it takes two teams to trade. I get it people are bitter about last year but what fan base isn't bitter about this or that? 
    • I ran 10 gauge wire from my shore or generator feeder to my converter.  Way over kill for a 2000 watt generator but if you ever take it camping or run it off a 3k in the summer it's nice to be wired for the extra wattage.  10 feet of 10 gauge really isn't that much money on the whole project... nice thing about running your inverter directly from the battery and splitting a couple outlets is they are always ready to go.  Just hit the switch on the inverter and you don't have to mess with unplugging and plugging in strings of 110 outlets.  Behind my tv the bottom outlet runs of the Genny and the top runs of the inverter.  Nice thing is if I ever wanted to run the whole 110 system off the inverter I can just run a 6 inch cord with a male plug on each end out the top outlet and into the bottom and power the whole house.
    • This looks like it will work to me. I had thought of doing something similar when I was thinking of going with the inverter, seperate 12v fuse block and onboard charger. Would have wired a "hot" outlet direct from generator. Then ran a piece of romex with a male plug wired onto it and tied the 110v into that. then I could have either plugged that into the "hot" outlet along with the onboard charger, when the generator was running. Or I could have plugged it into the inverter when needing to run off battery power.
    • never been there, have to go!!!   off 10 right???   or where?? thanks!!
    • Thanks everyone for the replies. I am planning to go with the ac/dc distribution panel with built in converter and charger. Then adding an automatic transfer switch, and an inverter. I m going to bring  the exterior generator outlet directly into a gfci outlet box. Then wiring the transfer switch as follows... To the NO(normally open) terminals I will wire either a piece of 14ga romex with a male plug wired on the other end, or just get a cord of the correct size with the plug on it, which will plug into the "hot" gfci outlet being fed by the generator. I will do the same at the NC(normally closed) terminals, which can be plugged into the inverter. Then from the transfer switch output I will wire a piece of romex with a female plug, or correct size cord with same. From the main terminals on the 110v side of the distribution panel I will wire of piece of romex or cord with a male plug on it. That can then be plugged into the female plug coming out of the transfer switch. I figure wiring it that way gives me the option of bypassing the transfer switch and plugging the distribution panel directly into the "hot" gfci outlet from the generator if the transfer switch should fail. The transfer switch should feed the output from the NO terminals as long as they have power to them. If they lose power, i.e. turning the generator off, then the NO terminal close and it switches the NC terminals open and feeds the output from those, which would be the inverter in this case.   I had been told by one of the places that sells fish house materials that I couldn't wire an inverter in with one of their WFCO panels. I knew there was a way so I thank you guys for making me think about it a little more. I think this set up will give me exactly what I'm looking for. I plan on running a Honda 2000W generator, and then two 31 series AGM batteries wired in paralell. Will run the generator during the day when convenient, but also want the ability to "run and gun" more when conditions allow without needing to set up the generator every time just to power a couple small AC items.   Anyone have any experience with the automatic transfer switches? Go Power brand seems to have good reviews. Same with distribution panels. 2 I see the most are the WFCO and the Progressive Dynamics. YettiStyle, what is it that you prefer about the Progressive Dynamics panel? Better quality? Easier connections? etc...   Thanks again to everyone!
    • Yes, if he's coming back on his own don't screw with adding something new he's not use too.
