      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 .

Yep. He got canned. If you look at his record, yeah, he coached some bad teams but he never made them any better when he took over. Has one of the worst win pct. in leage history.

I would look for the wolves to hire a veteran coach.

It's about time, that guy is worthless. I don't think it will get any better with McHale on the bench, this season is over. They should really consider bringing back Flip, but I don't he'll want to come back. A positive is this team is very young and has some really good talent, we just need a coach to be able to tap into it and get them to play together. Or not give up a lead in the 4th quater

I don't think any coach could get this team any more wins. They are a BAD team.

wittman turned a .500 ball club coached by dwayne casey to an awful lotto team. it has had more to do with coaching and management than the players

Now that McHale stepped down as VP and is a coach maybe Taylor will fire him too if he doesn't do any better or worse. That's wishful thinking.

from my understanding mchale didnt step down from anything. he's just doing both like he did when they fired flip

err, nevermind, im wrong. maybe we could hire a competent VP?

What a joke things are over at Target Center. Fired Casey to bring in his close buddy Wittman, now Taylor has had enough so he says cut the cord. Do these guys operate with any long range plan? Other than KG, they haven't had one move that has worked out and nothing that post hoc looks like it was planned out.

At this point the general consensus will be 'who cares?' They're a few years away from competing and even if you have salary cap room they won't attract anyone significant. Should have kept KG, brought in some decent complements, and paid the luxury tax, because now you're losing even more by not putting bodies in the seats.

I agree with ESPN's Bill Simmons, the NBA just needs GMs that use common sense, like a kid that plays NBA video games all day to tell them when they are making a mistake "Geez Kevin, I don't know, maybe a senior guard that is ready to contribute is better than another undersized point guard when we already have 3, let's pick Roy"...too much of a good old boy network among Taylor and McHale for anyone with any brains to come on board. Meanwhile the franchise sinks even lower and the perception is that Minnesota is the last place you want to play in...Guys would rather play for the Clippers than here because at least then the weather is nice. Unbelievable what this team became.

Yep, getting rid of KG was the downfall. Even when they weren't that good with him he put butts in the seat. Now they have nothing and we having nothing to look forward too. I would assume even their TV ratings are down.

After the initial shock to the players (which usually sends a strong message and makes them play harder, and sometimes translates to more wins,) in the first month, if McHale wins at better than a .250 clip I would be amazed. If he wins at better than a .333 clip I would buy season tickets, and if he wins at better than .400 I would eat my timberwolves hat.

...Like the problem is the coaching. Taylor just ignores the huge 600 pound gorilla in the room. Do you suppose Mchale will use the same line he used when Casey was let go: "We just didn't think the team was playing up to expectations" Remember that Casey had the team in the #8 playoff spot, and Wittman turned them in a .250 ballclub. Think McHale has expectations for this year's team? What a joke. He made this team, no he can see how good HIS players are. He should be tossed out with the garbage too. After all these years and little to show for it it's time for someone else to have a turn on principal alone, regardless of whether or not you think he's at fault here.

Glen Taylor and Mchale are the reason this team (and I use the word team very tounge in cheek)is so bad.Taylor has let Mchale do everything he wants and you see the results on the court.The league should pull his franchise from him for putting such a blackeye on the sport.But money talks and I guess he has the millions to lose.I pretty much stopped watching after Flip left.If he actually has the guts to fire Mchale that would be a huge step in right direction.Until then I guess all wolves fans can enjoy their 15 to 20 win seasonsssss,And thats being kind.

New coach, same result. They led Utah the whole game and lost 99-96. Love's 2-9 free throwing shooting might have had something to do with it, particularly when he missed 2 in the last 2 minutes.

Yea, I got sucked in like an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly. Watched the last four minutes and though, hey this could be good. Maybe this will be the reason Taylor needs to get rid of McHale now.

at least we were competitive against a good Utah Jazz team. it didnt help though that K-love was 2-9 from the free throw line and rashad was 2-12 from the floor and 0-5 from behind the arc

we played competitively against a really good Utah team. Mchale is no good as a GM but maybe he can coach. Its exactly what we needed to happen though, play competitively and lose

    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.  
    •   Well you must be talking about my old-New Cat?   Tore it down and found a finger tight head bolt and loose carb boot bolt!  Someone at the Cat plant went to lunch a little early!! The cylinder is in the shop right now so it may be back on the lake fishing anyway yet this year?  High speed trails. May be not?
    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
    •  Most riders are going to cross a driveway in the ROW as if it were any other crossing.  Start putting up barricades or berms to impede crossing the the ROW and heads will butt.  Point is you may have paved the driveway onto the ROW and feel some ownership but the law says you don't control it.   I see it all the time where a landowner blocks of the ROW.   The local club might contact you or Law Enforcement will to inform you to remove the barrier.  
    • I have two huge bags of shelled pecans and walnuts from Xmas that won't be used anytime soon and was wondering if I can feed these to birds and what species of birds would eat them
    • Well, it’s been a few more days. Cardinals are eating it, but they don’t seem to prefer it. Must be a lower quality seed, perhaps? I’m only getting 1 or 2 cardinals now, as opposed to the 10 to 12 I was getting before. Also not getting the sunset feeding frenzy anymore. The redpolls love it though. Anyway, do you guys do anything to help prevent sunflower shell messes, or do anything to clean them up, or do you just deal with the mess?
    • I noticed lately most tire shops have and use torque wrenches instead of just relying on impacts like they used to. Probably a liability thing. Keep in mind a lot of shops employ high school kids part time which is good because they know everything at that age. I had a shop years back put on lugs so tight it ruined the rims and lug nuts. Breaker bar is also a handy tool as well as the BFH
    • Congrats huckfin!!! It was a crashfest! Now to the real racing.
