      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 .

Vikings Defensive Line Suspension?

Recommended Posts

I heard that Kevin, Pat, and Jared are meeting with the commish sometime this week. Anyone have any additional information or know how soon the suspension could be handed down?

Kevin Seifert was on KFAN last night and from what I understood the 3 are meeting at the commish office this week, but he didn't think a decision would be made that day or this week so the 3 should be eligible to play this weeks game for sure

I know they are in 1st place, but at 5-5, does it even matter?

Just another first round play off exit for a Minnesota team.

Hooray. sick

I think the Williams boys will end up missing 4 games following this weekends game. The drug policy doesn't leave much room for interpretation of intent. I have a feeling they will be suspended and perhaps the wording of the rule may be addressed in the offseason.

Allen I think will be playing. They want him to come in to defend his actions on 2 late hits. I think they just want to figure out his intentions through a face to face meeting. I don't think any of his hits were malicious, probably not clean following the letter of the law but I don't think he meant to hurt anyone. Once the league sees that they might fine him but I doubt they will suspend him.

I actually don't mind if the williams boys get suspeneded for my own selfish reasons. I have M. Turner on my fantasy team and when we play Atlanta I will be in the playoffs so I would rather have Turner running against our back ups instead of the Williams Wall.

Jared is meeting today and there is a good chance he might be gone for a game or 2. The Williams boys are meeting on Thursday and they will more than likely be on vacation for a few weeks.

You can put a fork in this team, they are all done for the year.

G.C.

jared won't miss any time, players have gotten away with worse and received no suspension. you can't stop on a dime, neither of his hits were intentional.

the williams boys took a pill that the NFL had told them was from a company that was legit. its a little different situation than with most players. i think they get suspended, but i think 4 games is too high.

NFL NOTEBOOK

Vikings

As three Minnesota defensive linemen travel to New York this week to meet with the NFL, they could be bringing the Vikings' playoff fate with them.

Jared Allen, Pat Williams and Kevin Williams will meet with league officials in hopes of avoiding suspensions that would gut the team's biggest strength.

The Williamses will appear to discuss testing positive for a weight-loss diuretic that is on the list of substances banned by the league. They face four-game suspensions for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Allen will be there to talk about a hit on Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers two weeks ago that could leave him vulnerable to a suspension because it came two days after he was fined $50,000 for hits on Houston's Matt Schaub.

this is football, and if you cant take a hit, then get out and move on. Pretty soon there going to be down by contact like touch football.

But there is no need for a cheap shot that could break a players neck or bones on purpose. Nothing wrong with playing but, going after another to end his season is wrong and they should be kicked out for the remainder of the season.

Cheap shots is not playing football.

I agree Slip, but my problem is when you are that size and moving full speed at a guy you just can't stop on a dime. I don't think any of those hits were intentional.

It is literally impossible to stop your momentum once you get going in football. I've seen the shots that Allen had on these guys and they weren't cheap. His job description is to sack/hurry/disrupt the quarterback. He's being double teamed most passing plays and if he gets thru these he's being picked up by the running back before he gets to the Q-Back. Oh by the way, he has approximately 3-4 seconds to do this. He starts letting up and everyone will call him out about taking plays off like Moss. The NFL needs to chill out with all these fines being handed out each week---it's a joke.

The NFL has fined, but not suspended, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen for his hit on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Allen

Vikings coach Brad Childress said the league informed the team that Allen was being fined $25,000 for the hit in the Nov. 9 game, when Allen went unblocked and had a free run at Rodgers. Moments after Rodgers released the ball, Allen hit him high and knocked him down, drawing a roughing-the-passer penalty.

"Obviously, if it was going to happen, it was going to happen," Allen said of the fine Wednesday.

The hit on Rodgers concerned the NFL enough for it to summon Allen to New York on Tuesday to discuss his recent hits against quarterbacks.

Allen was fined $50,000 for two low hits in Week 9 on Texans quarterback Matt Schaub, whose knee injury turned out to be worse than expected. Schaub probably won't be available until the final two weeks of the season because of a medial collateral knee injury.

When Allen received that fine, he was warned he could face possible suspension if he had any future questionable hits. Allen said Wednesday that he was not planning on changing his style of play.

"No, nothing that happened was intentional. Most of those hits I was falling to the ground and I try to pull up," he said. "I'm not going to change the way I play. I'm going to play hard from snap to whistle and keep playing football."

Asked if he believed the league was getting away from the game itself, Allen said: "Obviously I have personal opinions about it, but I'll keep those to myself. The way I look at it is I told my side of the story and they told me what they thought was going on. We were able to see eye-to-eye and get a better understanding from both sides. I'm just going to go out and keep playing football the way I play football."

Rodgers said he didn't think Allen was trying to hurt him, and noted that he and Allen joked about the big hit immediately after the play.

"I respect Jared Allen," Rodgers said Wednesday in Green Bay. "I don't think that was a malicious hit at all. We actually joked about it afterwards. I know he was fined for the Schaub hit as well. In no way to I think it was intentional or did he want to hurt me. But the rules are the rules, and that's about all I'm going to say."

Childress appeared to be optimistic Allen will be able to play this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars, despite a third-degree shoulder separation. Allen is expected to be limited in practice, but he hasn't missed any games since suffering the injury.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
