      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 .

TIMBERWOLVES!!!!

Recommended Posts

Did anyone see the game Brandon Roy had last night against Phoenix? 52 points, put the team on his shoulders, and won the game on his own. Sure am glad McHale felt we didn't need him. I hope he used the cash acquired in the draft day trade for Roy to buy Glen Taylor something nice.

what about I wouldn't go if I was offered $750 tickets, free valet parking, and VIP lounge access....I was offered this the other weekend and turned it down.....and I love watching the Wolves just not in person....it hurts to watch them on TV can't imagine how painful it must be to watch them in person!!

I had tickets to a suit on Wednesday with drink and food free and didn't go. I was going to, but my wife hurt her back. I wasn't really sad about not going though.

went to the San Antiono game $125 tickets about 18 rows up center court. It was the quietest I've every heard the target center. After SA decided to turn it on and the wolves missed a couple of bunnies, I was yelling at McHale during a timeout and Foye look up and kinda smiled thats how quite it was. I would say only if the tickets where free and courtside.

I have family that works for the Wolves (he actually sits on the bench) so needless to say I have gone to a lot of free games. I just can't believe that they are making any money this year, the target center is just empty. I hate to say it but I go to game to be with my family and rarely watch the actual game.

If McHale doesn't leave, the T-wolves will never get better, it's as simple as that.

I wanna take a poll about the Timberwolves. If you were given tickets to any Timberwolves game would you go? Yes you would have to pay for parking.

I would not

sick notta chance, most mismanaged organization in the NBA

I went to the Cleveland game (just to see Lebron) and was actually kind of embarassed for the Wolves when Lebron got a standing ovation when he left the game.

Mike Miller has been a disappointment so far and Kevin Love looks so tentative when shooting that he misses chippies and easy put backs. Combine that with no outside shooting and the fact that we have Telfair and Olie running the point and it's no wonder we can't win a game.

Lebron was dominant in that game though and the fans at these games are fans of the game....so you have to give hime a standing O....he came and performed great, and that is the reason most of those fans came to the game! I was cheering at home for Lebron

Since they are moving some of their Operations, and therefore Jobs, to Mexico for cheaper wages...I would choose not to go... blush

Billionaire Glen Taylor needs to make an extra buck I guess, while adding to the Unemployment Rolls...Merry Christmas... laugh

Go Timberyotes Go...to Mexico...maybe you can compete there...

I didn't have a problem with the standing ovation for Lebron either....heck, I joined in. That was the easiest 32 points I've ever seen. It was just kind of sad that the only thing Wolves' fans can get excited about is opposing players coming to town.

Don't the Wolves have a bunch of money to spend when Lebron is a free agent in 2010. I am not saying they are going to sign him but there are a bunch of big names and I heard that the Wolves will have so much money that they could sign 2 of them. Here are the names for possible free agents in 2010:

Joe Johnson

Ray Allen

Ben Wallace

LeBron James

Dirk Nowitzki

Josh Howard

Marcus Camby

Rip Hamilton

Stephen Jackson

Tracy McGrady

Shaquille O'Neal

Dwyane Wade

Michael Redd

Tyson Chandler

Eddy Curry

Amare Stoudemire

Brad Miller

Manu Ginobili

Chris Bosh

Steve Nash

Carlos Boozer

Mehmet Okur

It's good that they're sucking this year. It's not like they're a playoff threat - may as well get in the top of the lottery and get a young stud. Now that McHale isn't the GM, maybe we'll actually keep him this time!

Can you imagine a lineup with Ray Allen, Garnett, Brandon Roy and OJ Mayo? Phew.

I watched it because my folks are in town and love the wolves. I got sucked in on the first half but didn't buy it all the way. How do you let a 30 point lead slip like that? K-love have the outlet pass to McCan't who was wide open and ended up coughing it up. Unbelievable joke of a team. Jefferson had a monster game on Monday though. I think there a couple of guys that would be good, but most need to go.

The one person I feel sorry for is Jefferson, the guy has been a stud every game but doesn't get any help. The way this season is going they will get a top 5 draft pick but knowing Mchale he will trade the player away.

if you think Jefferson has been a stud every game this year you have missed alot of games......I think big al is a good player but he disappears during the game alot and he isn't that great of a defender he is getting to be a better defender then he was last year but he still needs to improve.....GET RID OF MCCANTS!!! he is the worst player on the court!!!!

I agree on McCants. It would help Jefferson if they got some outside shooting or a player he could defer to. Late in the game against Dallas, they were double teaming him and he was still trying to score. I know he can't let himself to be taken out of the game by double teams, but the extra guy that was covering him completely abandoned his player. They have to be able to make teams pay for doing that. Each time down the court they'd dump it in and the other four would watch.

    • Everyone is correct in saying that a converter is the way to go. When hooked up to shoreline or generator power, batteries are efficiently being charged while also providing clean 120v AC and 12v DC power. There may be an additional option to give you the best of both worlds though....   How many 120 v circuits are you planning on having? Is it safe to assume that everything will be on one? Assuming that you will be running a honda or similar 2000 watt inverter-style generator... One 15 amp circuit is about all you will be able to run. I am in the same boat as you are... I have quite a bit of battery capability on board and a generator... but would like to be able to run 120v without having the generator going. What I am thinking about doing is this....     Now... I haven't tried this yet and by no means am an electrician.. But my thought is that my single AC circuit that feeds my outlets would be wired to a male plug. The Line out from my converter would be wired to a household female plug.... And then there is the inverter which already has a female plug. Basically, I can choose which source I want to use to feed the outlets... either inverter or generator. There may be better ways to do this, such as a transfer or 3-way switch - but I think it would be nice to physically know where the power is coming from. To me, this is the easiest way to have the best of both worlds, while ensuring that aren't using your inverter to charge your batteries back through the converter. Any of ya smart guys see why this wouldn't work?
    • Maybe they just stop working as well as the alternatives.   That could be because (speculation on my part) that the organisms that a crawler harness or a crawler on a rig emulate or resemble become less abundant in the fall and minnows have grown to the point where they are attractive to the walleye.   So the walleye are no longer eating bugs or crayfish for example but have switched to minnows.  I do know, based on the writings of a number of people and personal experience, that crawlers lose effectiveness compared to minnows in the fall on Vermilion.   Likewise starting out in the spring, and gradually crawlers become more effective than minnows. 
    • in the fall for walleye. Seems everyone switches to cranks or jigs and minnows in fall. Is there a biological reason why people don't think walleye so will hit a crawler harness in the fall?  Even all articles regarding fall walleye fishing talk more about using cranks or big minnows and dismiss crawler harness use that time of year
    • Went for a nice walk in the woods Sunday. Got one out of two hours of walking. Flushed a few but too many leaves yet. There's birds out their but I think the cool, wet spring affected brood survival.  
    • I donated these shells this week to an outdoor organization. All 500 of 'em!
    • So, Sunday mid morning I'm in a pretty good Walleye bite, two fish from a limit. And I stop to run in and watch the Vikings game.  note to self: Get head examined this week!  No stringers-right!
    • Not sure but if you throw some drab paint on it-it's a Duck Boat!
    • If I were to go back it wouldn't even have been a question.  Hydraulic is definitely the answer.
    • Opening day for grouse in the arrowhead I missed 3 birds and did not shoot at 4 due flying low over Finn. It was foggy raining but I did see 4 moose and a big black wolf. According to my phone I hiked 10.7 miles. sunday started off cloudy but the sun came out. The first trail about 30 yards from the car Finn flushed a grouse it flies up and straight down the trail bang one for one. Finn flushed 3 more birds on that trail but never saw them. The next trail we were walking down a grouse flew down in front of us and the grouse tried to hide in the clover in the middle of the tire tracks. Finn flushed it and went straight up and landed in a tree. Haha dumb bird I made a nice head shot and Finn made the retrieve.   We put on 9.8 miles but I left my phone in the car on two trails. Finn flushed a few more birds but I never fired a shot as they were to low or never seen them. For grouse numbers as high as the dnr said they must not have a great hatch or something. I was hoping to get some young dumb birds for Finn but we did not find them.
