      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 .

Lions trade Roy Williams to Cowboys

Haha that's exactly what I was thinking. Now Brad Johnson's noodle arm is going to be really sore from throwing.

We could have got Tony Gonzalez for a 3rd round pick. Thats what KC was looking to get, with no takers. He sure would have given Gus some one to dump the ball to that has good hands.

Straight from ESPN....

The Cowboys will give up a first-round pick in 2009, plus a third- and sixth-rounder that year for Williams and a seventh-round pick in '09.

That's insane to give up that much for an unproven guy. He's decent, but he hasn't lit them on fire. Talk about giving up. Wow.

Might spread out the coverage more, and might mean a more open TO

Sounds good in theory, but the barometer will be how many tears T.O. sheds in post-game press conferences.

thats crazy.

I like this trade for alot of reasons. I have Calvin Johnson on my Fantasy team, might mean alot of good points.

TO is going to be a horrible player about this, becuase hes not the go to guy ne more.

This trade will not go down good for the Cowboys. T.O. is NOT a team player and he will see far fewer balls his way now. This is a bomb waiting to explode in Big D. This is exactly the kind of move Detroit needed to make to start the rebuilding process.

I thought they started rebuilding about 10 years ago? laugh

I just read that 2 teams offered a third round pick for Gonzalez and it wasn't enough. KC wouldn't take anything less then a 2nd rounder. Gonzalez is a stud or atleast he will be for another year or two, but he's just too old to spend a 2nd round pick on.

T.O. is a team player in Cowboy land for some odd reason crazy. If you have been watching their games this year you would see that blocking anywhere he can and doing anything to help out. This will have a positive impact on the Cowboys and will free up one of the 2. If they both are double covered they can throw it to Witten or Barber. Sure it might not start showing results until Romo gets back but it was a good move for them especially since they have both Roy Williams now and they are both from that area. The Lions Calvin Johnson will be double teamed constantly now and his value drops and yes he will get more looks of two defenders on him.

the lions traded Roy and a 2009 7th round pick for a 1st, 3rd, and 6th rounder from the cowboys in 2009.

just to clarify a post earlier that stated the lions got 4 picks in return, actually they're getting three and giving up one.

Maybe not be a bad trade for either team. Detroit gave up a semi-proven early first rounder (7th pick overall in '04) for a first rounder and a third rounder. Figure the 6th and 7th round swap is fairly even. Dallas will likely be near the bottom of draft order for '09.

Might help Detroit recover a little from the crazy "Draft a WR first" mentality that they had for so many years under Matt Millen. 4 out of 6 years they draft WR first?

    • 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
