      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 .

I've seen enough of the NHL

Recommended Posts

The league has been going down since the turn of the decade but i've still watched NHL games, until now, i'm done, the league is headed to a direction geared towards punks and hotheads and this tops the cake

Some fans love it, some don't. I do.

This guy is the real deal. I'd rather watch it than watching basketball, where they like to say F-Bombs after a dunk+foul when camera is starring right in their faces or on live interview when they win a championship crazy...ring a bell? Yep, KG.

But I still love [both] guy(s)! Unconditionally, of course.

I have to agree wuth Quack. Hockeys never gonna be like the good ole days. The sport needs these kinds of players to bring people that usually wouldn't watch. I would think that besides from the purists out there that these type of celly's aren't a big deal. Been watching my whole life (30) and think that he is one of the best besides #99 and #66.

I like it. The NHL needs a little kick in the rear. Celebrating after a goal is part of what makes it exciting. Looked like the high school kids at the tournament knew what to do...

He disrespects the game of hockey every time he steps on the ice. It makes me sick. I am wishing for the ghost of Scott Stevens to lay a check on this clown and shut him up for a while.

Someone will pound all that excitement out of him...just a matter of time.

The problem is he's so good its going to be tough to nail him. But yeah lets hope they crush him.

If it was just this one incident I'd let pass but he's been doing a lot of this Non-sense of late. The dumbest one was when rode his stick like a horse after an empty netter in blow-out victory...

Stay tuned... grin

Who cares what he does? Noone is watching it anyway. Both the NHL and NBA can be abolished for all I care. They both have too long of seasons and are boring as all [PoorWordUsage].

College hockey is much more fun to watch IMO.

I like watching the wild on tv. i cant sit and watch an NBA game. College basketball i can get into. I'd rather go to an SCSU home hockey game than a wild game though. just my 2 cents.

Very Nice observation!

I will add Don Cherry cares about the NHL turning into a circus... grin

I don't see Ovichkin's move as disrespecting or degrading to hockey. Kind of what Otter said, every kid in the high school tourney was doing some kind of celebration. Most of the moves were the classic drop to one knee with a fist pump and then b-line it past the bench after every goal. Also, I know I can remember riding the stick every once and again just for fun when I was young. It draws some attention to the game, but not in a negative way. Now if he pulls a sharpie out of shin pads, that's another story.

Celibrating a goal after you score it is about pride and to turn/keep the momentum for your team.

Thats what fights are used for too.

All that right there is coming from my coach named Phil Housley.

He told are team that this year.

if you dont know who he is look him up and you'll find plenty.

Yes it is good to be humble sometimes and its good to be humble off the ice and to be happy and proud on the ice.

That is sad how you guys are.

Your juding someone because he so good.

He worked hard to be that good and he can hit like a mother too..

its his efforts that got him to where he is.

If you guys would have worked as hard as him you'd be there right now and if you saw people saying this about you, im sure you wouldnt be to happy...

celebrating after a goal is fine, but when he's trying to do T.O. antics or was he being Jimi Hendrix with his guitar on fire? He's only making enemies that way but he dont care he's just that good. Gretzky or Mario never did that but they were class acts.

I guess I'm in the same boat as Jake. Little will keep me from loving the game. I don't have a huge problem with Ovechkin, he's a phenominal player. I don't really agree with the goal celebrations, nut I'm definitely not hoping someone injures him.

I would say we're pretty lucky to have a league made up of the best players in the world and be able to watch games here. Look at European teams, it's all the kids who didn't make the NHL and the old guys who couldn't take the NHL anymore.

For those who think NHL is stupid because of the amount of games...take a look at the four major sports. All have large numbers of games except football. The MLB seems to be doing ok. They have 162 games seasons, double that of the NHL.

I agree this doesn't make the top 50 of reasons not to watch the NHL.

Personally I'm not watching the NHL until they go back to the Gump Worsley days and they make the goalies play without mask's grin

Anyway it sounds like coach had a talk with him an explained to 23 year old super star that such "TO" celebrations although not intended could be considered to be mocking or showing up the other team..

Next!

Wow. It is a free country.

Jump around and celebrate like a goof if you must.

OR, just raise your stick in the air like #99.

Either way, I still want to see him get railroaded with a hard hip check or shoulder to the chin. I don't like Mr. Ovechkin and that is my exercising of the 1st amendment. shocked

    • I've always been partial to the fold down couch in the back but I'd want to have storage under it and a fold down bunk above it. One thing to keep in mind is the heater.  I know you said the current heater stays for this season and maybe next but if you're doing work on the layout now you should probably plan for the new heater now even if its not going in for a year or two.  You'd hate to do all this work adjusting the layout only to find out you should have done something differently to accommodate the new heater. 
    • If mine,  I would add those drop down bunks and some pedestal boat seats.  With a smaller house like that I would want as much open area as possible.  I think those big couch/sofas take too much room.  You can always drop the bunk and take a snooze without taking up floor fishing space.  Just some thoughts.......
    • I tried a glass of a buddy's Templeton Rye last night and was impressed. I'm not big of Rye's but this one was very smooth. I can't say I'd ever buy a bottle but someone else's booze is always up near the top of the list of my favorites. I still prefer the $15 Trader Joe's bourbon though. 
    • I didn't figure anyone at cabelas would be any help. I have scoured the gun and haven't ever been able to find any markings of any kind. I forgot to mention in the previous post that it's a 16 gauge.  If nothing else, it'll look cool hanging over my basement bar. 
    • Ha I remember showing ya a thing or 2!!! Not sure where your son got his fishin prowess from though! Yea well!! oh I changed my poopy pants!
    • I can't see the pics?
    • You might be better off trying to do some research on your own on the old shotgun. I think it would be a waste of time taking it to Cabela's since most of the folks  who work there now think  any gun made before 1970 is an antique. The gun surely is made in Europe and might have originated in one of the English or Belgian or even German "guild" shops, little outfits that cranked out inexpensive guns that did not even bear maker's names since they were made by a "bunch" of guys. Your best bet would be to trace or photograph the proof marks and go from there.  That is,  I'm assuming it has proof marks :).
    • For an exciting adventure in shooting grab an old "trapdoor" Springfield and rattle off a few rounds of 45-70 or 45-90.  If you're of skinny build and little weight it'll give you a THUMP you'll remember!   Perfect deer cartridge for MN though since that big ol' bullet will go churning through the brush like a D-8 Cat until it hit's it's target. Have been around the old '94 30-30 since way back when and while it is handy it is not that accurate and lacks the knock-down power of many, many of today's rounds. But if you just have to have one as I always say, it''s your money. Keep in mind you can buy the .35 Remington in a pump action,   which a lot of MN duck hunters find easy to use come deer season.
    • I have an old Damascus barreled shotgun that was passed on to me by my grandpa. The story I have always heard and been told is that it was brought over from Denmark by my great grandfather in 1915. It has no markings indicating where it was made or anything else that I could use to figure out some history on the gun. It is a pin fire and has a stag carved into the underside of the stock. Anyone have any ideas on where I could find any info on this? I had thought about bringing it to Cabelas and see if they knew anything about it. I'm not concerned about the value. I'd just like to know a little more about it or even get pointed in the right direction. 
    • I like the .30-.30 because of availability and affordability of the ammo but I think the .35 Remington may be a better overall round. I don't know anything about the .45-70 Gov. though.
