      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 .

Big Al out for season

Recommended Posts

Star Tribune Staff Report:

Al Jefferson, the Timberwolves' best player, will likely miss the rest of the season with a torn knee ligament. He suffered the injury Sunday night in New Orleans near the end of the Wolves' 101-97 loss to the Hornets.

Jefferson leaped, landed awkwardly on one foot and tumbled to the floor. He got back up, hopped toward the Wolves' bench but collapsed, writhing in pain and clutching his right knee. The torn ACL is the same injury suffered by 2007 first-round pick Corey Brewer earlier this year.

"He's our main thing, the focus of what we do," Foye said after Sunday night's game. "Coming down on one leg, all his weight, heard a pop. That's scary to even think about. You've got to hope for the best and pray it's not the worst. You hope he only misses a couple of games. That's better than 32."

Jefferson leads the Wolves in scoring and rebounding, averaging a career-high 23.1 points and 11 rebounds per game. In the past 10 games, he has averaged 26.9 points and 11.8 rebounds and has come up big against the toughest obstacles, scoring 36 points and grabbing 22 rebounds against the Houston Rockets and 7-6 center Yao Ming and coming up with 34 points and 11 rebounds against the defending NBA champion Boston Celtics.

The loss of Jefferson is another bitter pill to swallow for a team already saddled with significant injury problems. The first big blow came when Brewer blew out a knee in late November and was lost for the season. Then Kevin Ollie, who had been a frequent starter at point guard, dislocated his left elbow in early January and hasn't been back. And starting power forward Craig Smith suffered a cracked rib last week and is expected to be out at least until after this weekend's All-Star break. Additionally, swingman Mike Miller has missed significant time with ankle injuries.

They weren't going anywhere this season anyway. Boost their position in the draft and hope Big Al heals 100% for next year.

I have to disagree. Maybe they weren't going anywhere this year. They have made one heck of a run. 32 games left and they're back 15. For as much as they have struggled thats not bad at all. Hopefully big Al recovers as Cardinal or Madsen will see some some more PT.

i have david robinson hopes on this one. the spurs tanked after the injury and ended up with duncan and rings.

there could be a positive to this if we somehow end up with ricky rubio

I was watching that game and I swear I started thinking we are so lucky to have a player that never gets hurt again, similar to Garnet, then all of a sudden, down goes Big Al.

I take full resposiblity. Now what am I supposed to watch on TV? I started to really enjoy watching the T.wolves again.

Gophers? spiraling down to the NIT again. Wild? I can only watch in fast forward, stoping at the fights and goals.

Do they televise La Crosse yet?

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college 2 areas, up top and down by river
