      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 .

Geoff Irwin

Recommended Posts

At the end of last night's game between UND and MSU-M Maverick player Geoff Irwin broke his carbon fiber stick slashing Darcy Zajac. In reviewing the replay WDAZ/Channel 23 did not catch the slash on film you can hear the stick being broken over Zajac on the tape. This is straight out of the federal league on slap shot and is utter bravo sierra. There is no room for that type of a reaction in ANY LEAGUE this is totally unacceptable, this wasn't a bow tie cross check this was a full swing tomahawk chop with a hockey stick. If that was the NHL it would be a minimum of two games. Lucky for Irwin the linesman Nate Freeman was able to rescue him before Zajac could exact his pound of flesh. (Goonsworld)

Do you think the WCHA will give him a suspension? Glad to see UND get 4 points this weekend. Saturday nights game could have easily went the other way.

I'll tell you what I sure hope the Sioux player who broke his leg on Saturday can make a full recovery. That was as bad as it gets. Joe Theisman comes to mind bad!

Trevor Brues of Mankato is dangerous to say the least.

I just read in the paper that the player (derrick Lapoint)that broke his ankle is out for the rest of the season. It sounds like they are pretty optimistic that he'll be back next season.

I don't think that Trevor Brues did anything that cause that injury. I'm surprise he didn't get game misconduct the night before when he hit Jason Gregorie from behind.

He definitley should/could have let up on that play IMO.

You have to give the Sioux credit for not losing focus and getting the W instead paying Trevor back for another hack-cheap series out of him!

Go Sioux!

I don't think there's any chance LaPoint plays College hockey next year...

This was as bad as gets as far as broken legs go!

Trevor Brues did get a suspension for a game. The suspension was for "recent in game incidents the league feels are detrimental to the game". His suspension will be against Neb-Omaha. It should be served in a game against a WCHA team.

Finally, somebody that stands up to UND and plays the way they do! UND is constantly hitting after the whistle, slashing away from the play, and always in somebody's face talking [PoorWordUsage]. Zajac is just carrying on a tradition started many years ago (Bochenski would hit his mother in the back if he ever go the chance- dirtiest player I have seen in the last 15 years!)

UND has had some goons just like any other team but Brandon Bochenski was not one of them. You may have him mix up with Mike Prpich or Radke.

UND may seem cheap to some but IMHO they are just one of the more psyhical teams in college hockey.Maybe its because they get alot of players from Canada that bring a more psyhical type of hockey than we are use to seeing.They don't hit after the whistle or slash away from the puck more than anybody else.

Hey fasternu, you forgot Keith Ballerd. Oh yeah thats right he played for MN. I'm sure you didn't see his cheap play because your eyes were fogged over. Get a clue!!

    •   I'm sure if I had the time I could have spent 10 more minutes and made a nice one out of Oak or Cherry wood! Or found a blue Genz box on C/list and been done with it!
    •   You didn't try to call me, I would have given you some old oak boards I have laying around and let you use a few of my basic woodworking tools like a jig saw, an oscillating drum sander and a router with a round over bit.    I always tell my son, if something is worth doing, it's worth doing right.  
    • Ooof, that sucks.  Been there, done that.  Somebody’s still being affected by our day in the soup at temps like that.  Woulda given the world for a few studs in the snowmobile track!
    • Got a set of old new stock mora 10in blades to put it on, and drilled  5 holes in 18-20in of ice no problem with the Milwaukee 1200in/lb-clam plate-mora 10in. Didn't skip or jump. This is gonna be nice for the wheel house.    When I had the HT Polar Fire shaver/chipper blades the drill would cut out because they were to agressive.    So so if anyone comes across some mora 10in shaver blades or 10in shaver blades in general let me know.
    • Sorry to be the guy that quotes himself but more info is needed.  Otherwise, yeah, might as well apply for A season if it’s just a general hunt.  And hope the weather cooperates.  
    • It was 31 below zero when i found  this slush .This is only time I got stuck it was about 2 feet of slush .  I had to jack it out of the water and let it sit for a day half.  I had to hook  3 widetracks together to get it out. 
    •   Oh Shut Up Mike!!!!!!!!!!    Looks like a great time. Thanks for the Hope there is still white on this planet!
    • What the heck is everyone up to? I haven't checked in, in a while, figured I better throw leech a few pictures of some snowmobiling...... hasn't been much going on in our neck of the woods with the wind blowing everything into the grass or woods.   Anyone else been out west yet?   7 of us shot out to Cooke City a week ago ( Jan 10 ) and rode the BearTooth Pass / Top of the World Wyoming on Thrus, then headed for Cooke City Montana to ride Friday and Saturday. Met up with 3 more and we had one of the best deep powder rides ever!   Always a lot of work when you ride in the deep stuff but it's something you always wait for, got a good work out from getting stuck ALOT and helping out the others too. I believe the snotel site topped 102" of snow ( they actually topped 100" around new years too ) which is early for them to get that much snow but not all places out west are getting snow, our friend from Colorado said one of the ski resorts out there was only 25% open ...... good thing we didn't plan on going to Colorado riding this year!   I didn't bring a camera with so I had to rely on my buddies to supply a few pictures.   There were some meadows and bowls that were STUPID Deep with powder, dang near didn't make it out, had to be an easy 3 to 4 feet of powder back in them areas...... it was AWESOME!!!!   When you see this much snow in town, it's going to be GREAT up top!                        
    • Some of my cam pics this year. Still showing bucks with antlers in the last week or so. 
    •   Thanks for the offer but I'm not sure how much it will get used. If he shows and interest to get back out there then we'll look for a better solution.    And it was just old scrap plywood from the garage!  Geez you wood guys really get Grainy!
