      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 .

Jared Allen?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering your thought about him?

They said he was a hard worker and doesn't give up on plays but he hasn't done anything all year. Watching him play he doesn't get after the quaterback like i thought he would. When i watch him, he spends most of his plays going in like 2 yards, then sits there waiting for the QB to throw then tries to jump at it everytime instead of tryiong to get the quarterback.

i don't know if i'm the only one noticing this, but your thoughts?

I was one of the lucky who got to go to that game on sunday, I will say, prior to that game I was in agreement with you, but on Sunday, I am sure the lions off. line isn't great, but he was all over the place, he was on that QB that ended up running out of bounds, he didn't get a sack, but definately was in his face for sure. But I expected more out of him by now too!

I think Allen is doing great execept for his frist game. I think a lot of offenses are double teaming him , and setting the backs on his side of the field to block him. The rest Dline like, Kevin willams are "freed up" if you will. I just see allen being on the front raise the entire lvl of playing of the front 4. As to trying to get qb, I think it as if hes able to get to the qb or not, or making a play by tipping a pass. Vikings also been calling plays to have allen drop back into coverage. Allen also been rushing the Qbs quite a bit too.

Allen is doing a good job. Watch him on plays and see how many times he is doubled or held. The one to be a little more disappointed in is Ray Edwards. I hope Robison gets more time soon.

as in all stats,, there is a reason behind them. K.Williams 4 sacks has to say something of the others involved,, and I think Allen has more then his fair share of freeing up KW.

MOst teams cannont afford to play Allen straight up,, some tackles can, but not many. He may not be worth all the $$,,, but he's pulling his load and others are taking over.

I think after this week, Chicago gota put a back in there to help block KW. That means 1 more offesnive player that wont be recieving. They probably won't single block Allen, that would just be asking for trouble. That means we can blitz more or have stronger coverage...depdning on play calling. A good player affects the game more than just what plain stats tells ya.

He's good but I don't think he's meeting up to a majority of the people's expectations. I wouldn't think we paid big for a guy that has a lot of "hurries" and very few sacks.

I agree with Mudcutter-He might not being living up to his previous year stats, but I think he still adds a whole new dimension to this D-line. Kevin Williams is getting loose a lot more often and Big Pat is his same old self. I just think he's getting a lot more attention and that leads to more space for the Williams Boys to operate.

I feel he has had a great year so far. As has already been mentioned, offenses have to change schemes in order to slow Allen down. The Vikes pass defense has been greatly improved thanks to him.

Its really hard to judge right now who have we played thats good?

Has he done any better that James or the others I cant rember the names of. To me he is not standing out as the money should expect. But hey, I didnt see last game I decided to fish untill Childress is gone. With this devision, witch should be easy, if they make it to the playoffs they will be wiped out the first game depending on if a central division backs into the playoffs and we end up playing them.And that will be a toss up.

Then I'm in the minority.

If you look at our defense as a whole, it has improved significantly since Allen arrived. He might not be getting the numbers, but if you look at the big picture it was money well spent.

I agree with the Wadinator

Sacks aren't everything. He's still putting TONS of pressure on the quarterback, while relieving some of the pressure for the other defensive linemen.

never knew the whole defense is better just because of Allen's presence. There are other people on the defense that have improved to make it better, so it's not all on Allen

Can you name them? Can you prove or disprove that Allen hasn't helped those "other players" improve. Our D seems way better than last year and it is virtually the same players on the field with the exception of Allen. I would say he is a great pickup, but you can't say that he's worth the money until he has a few more good seasons under his belt. And this season is far from over. We will see, but for now he seems like a great addition.

I agree Team Otter...he's good but he certainly hasn't been "amazing" so far.

I read a neat article in the Wisconsin Outdoor News about Allen going on a bear hunt with a WI teen that has leukemia. He seems like a really good guy. The NFL needs more guys like that in the league!

    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
