      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

Recommended Posts

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?

    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
    • Tip ups outside the house are fine because you can visually see them which means you are attending to those lines.  A line left down in your house while you go to a buddies house can't be seen. If you can't see them you can't attend to them when needed.  A CO also has no idea how long you were gone, were the lines unattended for 5 minutes or 5 hours?   If you have some sort of system set up so that you can monitor the lines remotely then you've entered a gray area and would probably be up to the CO's discretion.  You can email the DNR and ask but I'm guessing whether you get a ticket or not would be determined by which CO finds you and what kind of mood he's in that day.  If you did choose to take the ticket to court I'd think you'd have a reasonable case to present.  The judge would have to determine if being able to monitor your lines on a baby monitor satisfies the law. Personally I think it would but who knows what a judge or CO would think. 
    • Sounds like event was well attended all 3 days just over 28k total.   we went on Friday and had a great time participating in the bird dog parade. Scored some deals on some dog stuff and even got some nice freebies.   hope it makes it back to SD again. Next year is in Schaumburg Illinois so probably won’t attend. 
    • Battled the winds yesterday but fishing was excellent. Couldn’t find the big perch but managed to get a limit of eyes here in South Dakota
