      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 .

Ref puts a hit on a QB

Recommended Posts

SEC Umpire Wilbur Hackett Jr. takes down the Univeristy of South Carolina QB Stephen Garcia in a game vs. LSU this past saturday. The SEC reviewed the play and says it was unintentional. I think otherwise...nice hit though.:D

That was not defending himself. He didn't make any effort to get out of the way it looked like he purposely moved into position to make the block. Either way its hilarious. laugh

The rule is an official is part of the field and we don't need to move to get out of the way, mostly because then we'd probably just be in someone else's way who was going to avoid us. Umpire is the most likely official to get hit on any given play given their location in the middle of the action. The rest of us are generally outside the action and are taught to stay back from the action and move in slowly to avoid getting hit (doesn't always work, I took a spike on the top of my foot Tuesday night in a playoff game and my foot is all swelled up and I can't even tie my shoe the last two days at work but its a good thoery)

This play however is strange to me. He started out in a strange spot on the field (looks anyway like he was very wide for an umpire) and seemed to move into a worse spot as opposed to holding his ground. The flipper; well you've got to protect yourself if you are going to get hit so I don't have a real problem with that, I just don't get why he moved to the spot that put him in that position to need to use it.

Looks worse than it is, but its strange...

I loved that clip. ESPN couldn't get enough of it. Looks like Hackett misses his college football days a little too much. It wasn't that great of a hit. I just think Garcia went down out of shock at the zebra striking back. gringringrin
