      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 .

Pick 3

Recommended Posts

Pick 3 for this week, I don't have access to all of their opponents, all sports websites are blocked at work so I can't look up the ones I don't know.

TJ Houshmanzadah

Hines Ward vs. Bal

Marques Colston

Antonio Bryant

Steve Breaston vs. Min

I think I'd stay away from Heinz against the Baltimore defense. Breaston could be good considering more focus on boldin and fitzgerald.

I'd start Bryant and TJ then.

I should asterisk by saying I am in second to last in my FF team though

I'm a little late. Hopefully you started Colston! Throwing him out. I'd play them in this order.

Standard scoring

Bryant - Looking good, divisional game

Housh - Gets lots of looks.

Breaston - Will get yards and catch, probably no TD though

Ward - big no on Ravens D. He'll be a marked man.

I did start Colston. He has been hit an miss but I thought he was due. Scored me 16 points.

My league counts 1 pt per reception as well as 6 for a td and 1 pt for every 20 yds.

Right now I have Colston how already played and I have Breaston and Houshmanzadah. TJ has gotten a ton of catches but not many TD, same with Breaston.

Bryant is an attractive option but he's very hit an miss and he doesn't have many TD's this season.

I will reasses the situation tomorrow once all the final injury reports come out. I also want to take a look at the weather conditions to see if anyone is playing in a snow storm this week.

Right now all I know is Ward is sitting this week out for me.

My decision making wasn't so good this week. Actually it was my worst week of the season in terms of selecting the wrong guys to play. I hand Antonio Bryant (19pts) on the bench sitting next to Hines Ward (13pts). Instead i played Houshmanzadah (3pts) and Breaston (6pts). Thats a 23 point swing. And that doesn't include the fact that I bench Big Ben in place of Matt Ryan, another 9 point swing. So thats 32 points I left on the field.

Good news is that I believe I won anyways. I was up by 8 going into tonights game with my opponent having Westbrook yet to play. Looks like Westbrook did me a favor and took it easy tonight and only scored 5 points.

It was an ugly win but I'll take it any way I can get it. I'm in the Championship game next week and the #1 seed lost this weekend so its me (#2) versus the #4 seed for all the marbles.

    • Mine lasted 5 years, then broke on the lake, but I got two new ones the week before. Lucked out I guess.
    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
