      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 .

Allen Fined $50K

Recommended Posts

Jared Allen was fined today $50,000 for alleged low hits on Matt Schaub last sunday. To me, all his hits looked legal, and in fact the only bad hit involving Allen was the one were HE was tackled and injured his shoulder. No fine for THAT hit, however.

compared to the fine that Tuck received for taking down Brooks Bollinger, JA was raked over the coals.

Tucks hit looked perfectly legal to me. Didn't realize they allowed a bunch of Mama's boys into the NFL.

NFL = NO FUN LEAGUE

Goodell is destroying the NFL. He's turning this league into the NBA. Pretty soon the pads come off, then the helmets, and we insert flags on the players belts so they don't even have to tackle eachother anymore.

Pretty soon they are gonna have a rule saying a player can only two-hand touch quaterbacks! Man that'll be fun...

I can't believe how bad these calls are getting, some are good calls yes, but a lot of them are just plain dumb. Maybe they should switch from tackle football and go to a National flag football league, then we wouldn't have these issues? Ah yes, I can see it now "THE NFFL"...

its not like these guys are trying to hit eh QB in the legs or whatever for the wrong reason.

This is football, and people should get hit. You dont see this in HS do you?

Hit the guy!

Should QB's be protected agains't late unneccisary hits? Yes.

But when you are a defensive player that is two steps away for the QB, how do you know if he is going to pump fake or throw it? You can't stop yourself fast enough to not hit the guy.

In HS Ball there is no money on the line, there is no big name players that make money for the league so they don't need to protect anyone....

I say when you get a clear shot at the QB, take him out. Don't do it of course when it's an obvious late hit. Call me sadistic, but i like nothing more than the opposing team's QB taken out of the game. Or a wiely CB getting ran over by lets say...peterson..or jacobs.

unless of course it happens to one of YOUR players, right? Yeah, that's what I thought....

Everybody cried when Peterson got taken out last year, but now it's OK since one of your players did it to the opposing team. There's no double standard there...nah.

Houston coach Gary Kubiak made it clear that he never said Vikings defensive end Jared Allen tried to hurt quarterback Matt Schaub in last Sunday's game at the Metrodome. Allen was fined $50,000 by the NFL last week for two low hits on Schaub, who is expected to miss four games because of a torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

Kubiak and the Texans had sent three plays involving Allen into the league for review. "You haven't heard one thing from [me] or anybody on this football team saying that Jared Allen tried to hurt our quarterback," Kubiak told the Houston Chronicle. "The bottom line [is] we just tried to protect our player from [the kind of] hit that we think the league is trying to get rid of. But by no means do we think this young man was trying to hurt anybody."

Hey I even said for the opposing team. You're darn right I make exceptions for my players. That’s called being a FAN. Being a sports fan...is irrational to begin with. Do not try to look for hypocrisy in sports, there’s tons of it and it’s moot.

This isn't politics :P

No actually Al Harris after putting out a bounty on Adrian Peterson cheap shouted him by taking his knee out with a low hit cheap shot.

Where as Allen was just playing football and was fined by a bunch of candy azzz'z that run our league.

Glad I could clear this up for you Badge it is difficult for the guys that didn't play sports or don't understand sports to understand the huge difference in the 2.

I thought you were smarter than this Pier?? crazy Let me make it simple for you...read this slowly so it can register. Al Harris never was fined for the legal tackle on AP. Allen was fined for his low hits on the QB. That's the difference!LOL grin

It's OK that you never put a jock on. You sat in the shadows dreaming of hitting a home run, catching a TD, making that last 2nd shot. You probably did a great job popping the corn at the concession stand.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!
