      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 .

In regards to the play calling on the last two drives today?

Why not run the ball on second and 2 or third and 2 on the drive with ~3 mins left? We needed a first down, passing the ball wasn't the answer. And then get the ball back with 1:40 left and throw it deep on the first play, wow didn't see that coming..........

And why was Bobby Wade the wideout the last long ball? He's much better in the slot. Put Berrian or Rice out there where they should be, they're wideouts and that's their job!

I can't believe this CLOWN of a coach. I am so sick of them not even having AP in at the end of the game. Did they watch the end of the packers game? Fricken IDIOTS. I am done with this until he is gone. What a waste of 3 hours.

All I can say about the last two drives was [PoorWordUsage]? I'm still scratching my head.

What happened to AP in the second half? And why the [PoorWordUsage] would they call a deep ball to Bobby Wade? I thought thats what they got Berrian for. Nothing about this team makes sense anymore. Next week we should start Pat Williams at corner, move Allen to linebacker, put Ferotte at Tackle, and give AP a week off. That should confuse the Jags and we'll walk away with a victory making the vikings the smartest team in football history.

Sorry, my rant isn't over yet. This team though talented is playing like garbage, absolute garbage. I don't blame the players I'm blaming the entire coaching staff. Every week they come right out of the gates blazing with boredom. Blah is the best way to descibe this team. We need to dump Childress and do it now!

OK I'm done for now!

Nothing against Gus, but he just doesn't have the arm for a long ball.

We can only hope that the Childress era will be history after this season.

Childress has got to go! After AP's performance at the end of last weeks game, where he happened to save their butts, how do you justify not playing the guy during their last possession this week?? Even AP was hot about it cause they showed him on the sidelines arguing with the running backs coach.

So the alternative sucks too. Whats your point. This team is CARP because of the terrible QB and the Terrible Coach. This isnt the only place ive heard this "lets support Gus" stuff. Call him out. he is a terrible QB. he belongs in the unemployment line with chilly.

We need ice on our lakes real bad. First game I watched since weak 4 when I swore I wouldnt watch another game untill Childress is gone. I guese I needed an afirmation today to make my decision the right one.

Why does Childress play into blitzes and not adjust? Oh thats right he sucks!

I can not recall if they even had a run play during the forth?

We are still tied for first whistle though!

The lions will not go 0-16, because they have to play the vikings

Oh, dear. I have to say though, that first game was close.

all i have to say about our playcalling is that we better get new coachs.

WE HAVE THE BEST RUNNINGBACK IN THE FLIPPEN LEAGUE, AND ITS 4-1 AND WE ARE GOING TO PASS

WE HAVE THE BEST RUNNING BACK IN THE GAME, AND THE GAME IS ON THE LINE LATE IN THE 4TH QUARTER, SO WE HAVE CHESTER IN INSTEAD.

WE HAVE SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE THAT HAVE BETTER TALENT TO RETURN THE BALL

WE NEED TO COACHES THAT ARE SMARTER THEN A 5TH GRADER.

i dont like the 2nd and 2 call either, but it is the "football" call. since you should theoretically be able to pound two on third down 2nd and 2 is often the perfect time for a longer pass.

4th and 1 was a joke, first of all you dont drop back against a blitzing team on 4th and 1. second of all you don't throw it to a running back who catches a lot like troy williamson. the best rb in the league, but he has stone hands

also tjack sucks, but Gus is not going to get any better. we aren't making the playoffs with our remaining schedule. Tjack needs to play because he could potentially improve. I don't like him, but you have to see if upside develops because gus has reached his upside and its not so good

I don't agree Crappies, Tjack should be out of the league, he will never be anything. Coaching didn't just suck on the last two plays, look at the end of the second quarter. We are up, why can you never play for another touchdown. He has no clue what he is doing and is always out coached. Even when we win he is out coached but I guess the sun will shine on a dog's butt now and then too.

I didn't like the play call either, but it's hard to catch the ball when the d-back has a hold of one of your arms before the ball gets there.

I would rather see T-Jack at this point of the season. We are not going to make the playoffs, and if my some stuiped reason we do, we won't make it far. Get the kid back in the game, I am tried of seeing Frerrotes old legs and old arm!

Gus is what Gus is!! A backup QB. We dont have a Starter. All I can say is the Ravens,Tampa,and the Redskins all won the big one without a good QB. Gus has keeped us in every game he has started so far! Jackson is a run and gun QB. They dont last long in this league anymore.

After reading all these comments, I almost thought I was in the Bear Bashing thread! I think we are all in the middle of a mediocre division and there will be one winner (league says we have to let one of them win, LOL) but whoever takes this division will be "one and done" in the playoffs. Pack does not do much for me, Vikes don't seem to be pleasing the MN fans and I can assure you the Bears ain't cutting it here in the Windy! This could be one of the more amusing finishes in football history, could we have a winner of the division with a losing record?

How about our pathetic right tackle? How many times did his man walk by him and mess up a play or get a sack?

Our O line hasnt been good this year in my opinion. Not consistant at all.

With Guss at QB we need protection wich he isnt getting. He isnt the "answer" but he is the best we have now. Send Tjunk away and get a "starter" from someone or the draft.

Oh and give the ball to Peterson. grin

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
