      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 .

Luckiest Teams in the NFL (updated)

Recommended Posts

I stumbled upon a HSOforum that has various statistics and calculations and one of the things they figure is "Luckiest Team"

Below are the results of their calculations which show the Jets are the luckiest team having won three more games than they probably should have. The unluckiest team is the Packers who should have almost three more wins. (No, this wasn't from a Packer HSOforum either).

GWP is the probability a team would beat the league average team at a neutral site.

WOW,

Interesting stat Limit, let's see, Which team is WAY up the chart at #6 and which team is WAY down the list at #22???

Thought provoking, don't you think? So much for all the Queen lovers gnashing of teeth, wailing and whining!

Have a little Cheese with that Whine, Queen fans!

Coming from a guy whose team probably should have jumped all the way up to #1 just on last Monday's win alone that doesn't sting so much.

Come On Fishy,

That game turned out just like Lovie had it scripted! All the way down to Urlacher bouncing the quarter off his melon to turn it to heads! LOL Have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year man.

i'd have to say the bears are the luckiest team...not even counting the monday game...they always pull the rabbit out and get the win.

my vote for unluckiest would be the lions...alot of the times they are in the game in the end of the 4th quarter then totally lose it...you'd think atleast 1 of them games something lucky would happen for them lol.

Windy,

Good thing Urlacher has that oversized melon. I am going with Houston and the #15 lucky ranking this weekend.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I wonder why LMIT didn't pull out that stat line last year when the Packers were the #1 lucky team.

There is luck in winning the lottery, the coin flip to start overtime and then there is the luck it takes to win games. Give the Bears credit, they found a way to take advantage of the luck that came their way. As did the Falcons last weekend or the Vikes earlier against NO. It takes talent and a ability to take advantage of luck in an NFL contest. Otherwise the Lions would have beat the Vikes this year when they had a +4 turnover margin. Is it coincidence that one of the best game saving QB's ever (Favre) has his team atop the lucky rankings for the second year in a row although he switched teams. The "lucky" team he left went from 13-3 to at best 6-10. The "lucky" team he is now leading was 4-12 and now has them in reach of the playoffs and/or division title. Good teams find a way to win. The Bears have done that, the Vikes hopefully will prove that out one more time and the Pack really suck.

It is looking that way, Fish. The Queens are hands down the luckiest of the 4 teams in the NFC Central fight, and my beloved Bears are the most unlucky. According to LimitOut's chart so it looks like the Queens will roll and da Bears will be put into hibernation. Might as well not even watch the games! LOL

i wish the vikes really were the luckiest of the 4 teams...it seems to me everything that can go wrong always does.

the bears weren't lucky with that blocked field goal it was because the vikes are just that unlucky. LOL

Shouldn't you have posted that property in the "Free things" along with the 20' box fan???

No agenda, just posted the calculations from THIS year thus far.

And, I don't know why it turned into a Packers issue when I'm not even a Packers fan. Yet, I don't find it surprising....

Nice try though. smirk

LOL...Yep, never any agenda with your posts. Your concern over our being well informed about our team thoughout the season has always come through so well. Thank you for keeping us informed on our team. Keep those uplifting, well meaning posts coming.

Not sure how that first post can lead to any "assumptions".....I just posted some statistics for people to chew on and then in some bizarre fashion it appears paranoia set in that the beloved Vikings were getting picked on. wow.

BTW, what does "our team" mean? This is a football forum, not a Minnesota Vikings forum in case you haven't noticed.

Good luck today!

Limit,

Don't let them rattle you, man. They are just really nervous. There is this big Green machine that is going to be rumbling into Twinkie town this week and all the Queens fans are watching out overhead as the Eagle soars in for the kill!

That was a great stat you found, no matter what any nervous Queens fans say! Eagles by 21 points!

LMIT,

Again, my statement had to your history and pattern of posts that led to the assumptions. Your idividual post may have been benign but its kind of like the boy who cried wolf. You actually posted something that didn't include a shot at the Vikes, their fans, their quarterback or backhanded, sarcasm laden compliment, and we didn't believe you.

In saying "ours" as a posessive I was referring to the Vikes that you so lovably pick on.

    • Free agency is far from a sure thing, if there are young centers out there (big if) you have to compete with maybe 10 or 20 other teams and pay way over what you should. You have control of nothing and are at the whims of a player everyone is chasing. Same with trades, very easy to swing and miss. By most account we were in on Ryan Johansen with the Preds but Columbus wanted Jones over Brodin and I don't blame them. 
    • Good stuff but time wiill tell. Not buying the "oh we might lose him as a UFA"...so what, with that kind of money we could buy just as good and younger to give us more of a future...which we desparately need to be thinking about.  Fletch is walking a tightrope and it is going to break IMO.
    • Come on BB, you are better than that. You as much as anyone know that ONE player doesn't make an NHL Team a Stanley Cup contender so why put that blame on him. Sure, a player like Crosby certainly helps, but we aren't talking about the money that Crosby is getting here either. Comparing Koivu's contracts to equivalent players with similar production is quite compelling. He has performed better than many of his peers for his current contract and with the lower AV of his new deal if he continues similar numbers it will be a bargain. I wasn't too happy about the NMC either, but I take that as a bargaining chip so CF didn't have to go with a longer term deal. 2 years is sufficient and I think it works well for both parties. You are right, there are many people out there with more knowledge about the market and what he could have gotten elsewhere and when it may have made sense to sign him, but the fact is you don't want to wait to sign him until after the season for if no other reason at all than to allow him to be a UFA and hear other offers. This will be my last post about the Koivu extension because clearly we don't see eye to eye on whether it made/makes sense, but I assure you there are a large number of "hockey minds" that are in agreement with me on this. Here is some afternoon reading for you: https://www.hockeywilderness.com/2017/9/20/16332552/mikko-koivu-contract-extension-minnesota-wild-criticism-overpaid-chuck-fletcher-cap-space
    • Red admiral i believe.
    • Btw......for you bass purists .... a couple days before the above success, I located mostly largemouth with one smallmouth on the edge of bulrushes adjacent to a deep drop off.  Probably a dozen fish in 20 casts with a Senko. Nothing of any real size. Always fun getting fish on four or five consecutive casts.
    • Great find! I did a little research and did not find an I.D.  Hopefully someone will know what it is.
    • You are 100% correct... a guy has to be smart about it. There is nothing magic about inverters... its takes a lot of DC juice to make a little AC juice. On the flipside though, I have a 120vac 32" TV/DVD player that only draws 51 watts AC.... meaning that it should (hypothetically) only draw 4.25 amps DC. Even with a 15% draw added for the inefficiency of the inverter, I am still under 5 amp. Usually I will run the generator for a few hours between 10 am and 2 pm. Then it is off until 7 pm or so... Then I will fill it up and let it run through out the night. It will run about 9 hrs on eco, so by 4 am or so it is out of gas... but the batteries are topped off nice to run the routine again. The 4 hr run isn't necessary, but does offer some security. With a 5 and a 7 yr old fishing with me the majority of the time, the TV usually doesn't turn off during the day.
    • I believe the crawlers are not natural forage and using them as bait emulates large larvae.  
    • Like I stated earlier and others with more knowledge than anyone on here have as well..we should have waited...I also was unaware of the no trade clause which he was able to get without any less $$...pure stupidity...we'll know in 8/9 months how this pans out...it boot straps us from further improving the team with younger talent is my main issue. As far as a captain, lifelong wild...blah blah blah....if he is such a pillar, such a great player, such a leader of the team...where has he taken us? The playoff record speaks for itself....time to dump guys like Koivu at the soonest opportunity who have done all they can or at least decrease their pay in later years not increase them...they took us as far as they could...and we've already got vets like Parise, Suter, Spurgeon, Granlund, Coyle, Brodin locked in on long term deals; give one of them the C to carry us forward.
