      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 .

FFL Commishioner Decision

Recommended Posts

My opponent last week started Ray Rice and Brady Quinn. He picked up both players when he had already used up all of his alloted transactions. This week, the commish said that he Ray Rice would be removed from his team and Tyler Thigpen would be put back on (reversing the last transaction).

The team owner is now asking if R Rice was disallowed, then he should have had McGahee starting in week 10. He started McG in the prior week.

If he gets these points, it would change the outcome of the game and put my into a 1st place tie instead of a one game lead.

Thoughts? Can you really disallow an illegal transaction and ASSUME that he would have left an expected injured player who didnt play at all in week 9 to start in week 10? He had one other back on his roster who had zero points.

So the commish didn't catch the illegal transaction until after the games were played? Kind of a gray area, but there's no way he should be able add a different player in his starting lineup after the games are over.

If the transaction is illegal then I'd say the whatever player(s) that were acquired illegally should not count towards his total for that week and that team will get 0 points for that position in his lineup after removing the illegally acquired players.

That is correct, it wasnt caught.

At the same time, it is a friendly league and we try to keep things fair.

From the other players perspective, if I had McGahee get 15 points AND the new player get 15 points and was stripped of those points because it wasnt caught, I would be upset. Starting a bad player and getting zero points then wanting to insert someone else is pretty poor IMO.

I would agree with BeerBatter, if the transaction was illegal then those points should be erased. Penalty would be 0 pts for said players. Commish should have to approve any transaction before it is allowed in any league. Even in friendly leagues you have to play by the rules, if you have them : )

I am the commish for my league and this reason is why we allow unlimited transactions. Although we have never had any issues with someone abusing the system.

If I were to limit transactions I would probably lay out the penalty for going over the limit before the season started.

I would probably lean toward giving 0 pts for that position as a penalty. The only other option is if the commish can try to be impartial and figure out what player likely would have been put into the spot if the transaction would have never occured, then just apply that players points to that weeks game.

Its a tough call, I can see both sides of it from a commish's perspective. I say make it simple and just disallow any points for that position, the player should understand that its a penalty for breaking the rules.

I agree with nofish. If they understood that there is a limit on the number of transactions prior to this happening (should be documented prior to the season), then the penalty for an invalid roster would zero points for that position.

Making an assumption of which player they would have started opens up the door for future woulda, coulda, shoulda's and the precedent has been set and it will be tough to reverse the process.

My next argument would have been that he might have tried to make a trade to fill a position where he didnt think he had a worthwhile healthy player.

He made the right decision last night and let thing stand w/ R Rice in there, ergo, no points.

    • Really great colors there now and butterflies by the thousands. get there if you can. Headed over for 2 hours today. Heres a few pics. Pics from Munsinger
    • Plus+1 last weekend got into a good bite in about 31-35 feet and they were all full of Minnows.
    • @Tom Sawyer   Any idea what this is with the painted lady?  Only saw this one at Munsinger.  Really a beauty. 
    • Thanks Juneau.... Just an FYI to everyone - HH is my account
    • Interesting take on the Koivu Signing:   Perhaps most galling about all of this is Michael Russo of The Athletic tweets there is a no-move clause in Koivu’s extension. Why on earth would Fletcher agree to include a no-move clause in an aging player’s contract? It’s bad enough when you give a no-move clause to a productive player who suddenly hits the cliff but in Koivu’s case there was no reason to do this. Heck, there was no reason to give him any type of extension in the first place. He also was entering the final season of a seven-year, $47.25 million contract that will pay him $5.4 million in 2017-18. Allowing Koivu to play out that contract made perfect sense. If he had productive 2017-18, he might be brought back but there also was the potential that his money could have been used on a younger, more attractive talent. Koivu is coming off a productive 2016-17 season in part because he was able to move from first- to second-line center playing behind 32-year-old Eric Staal. Koivu had 18 goals and 58 points and was a plus-27 in 80 games, spending much of the season with Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker on his wings. Like many Wild players, Koivu didn’t do much in the Wild’s five-game first-round playoff loss to the Blues. He had one goal, one assist and was a minus-1. All of this set up Koivu with the opportunity to return this season and prove he could remain a productive and durable player. When it came to Koivu’s contract, the Wild finally was in an ideal spot. That is no longer the case. Instead, the Wild has Koivu locked up for three more years and, thus, put themselves right back in the type of salary-cap situation they should be trying to escape.
    • Thats the way I ran mine.  One run of AC comes from the converter, and one run terminates in a male plug that goes into my inverter.  That outlet run is dead unless I am running it off my inverter but I just split the couple outlets I would need behind the TV and one other spot and it seems to be working flawlessly so far.  I can watch Dish TV without firing up the genny if I want.  Only time I would really do this is during a hot bite to minimize noise.  Outside of that, just let er run.
    • I guess we'll see in 8/9 months if he's worth $6 Million.....my point is they could have waited and resigned him in the off season for less...he never would have gotten that elsewhere...never...just leaving money on the table that could be spent more wisely elsewhere IMO.  Surpirsed he hasn't extended Parise/Suter for another 5 yrs at $9M/yr beyond the 10 he already signed them for   
    • I'm guessing that worms and crawlers wash into water systems after storms. So they are not totally foreign to being found in the water. Deep mudflats? Doubt it. But I do target storm sewer outlets on lakes shortly after rainfall with some success using natural colored rubber worms for bass. And have caught an occasional walleye while doing so.
    • Just relaxing and bobber fishing with the Mrs while camping up north 10 days ago, had decent sized suckers on. Had 8 suckers left for the evening bite. Found where some smallies seemed to be stacked. Two 18"ers, two 19"ers and what looked to be a 20" smallmouth that got off boat side.  A 23" walleye decided to get in on the fun, had a snip off and lost a fish in the weeds 25' feet down. Those were some productive minners. Bringing more next year. A nice double and my wife's new personal best bass. 19"
    • its same reason to cast frogs shallow back towards the shore late fall like they are jumping in the water. those walleyes know come fall thats what frogs do and are waiting to ambush them and makes for some great fishing.
