      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 .

The Official Lions Off-season Thread!!!

Recommended Posts

Stealing a page from FG:

This thread is for ideas on what moves the lions should make or have made in the off-season...re-signings, new coaching, trades, free agency, etc...it will change throughout the off-season as moves are made.

of course that all depends on who the lions draft,trade,and sign.

discuss

This is where this thread should start out of respect. The Loins should have dumped Wayne Fontes when Barry Sanders was in his prime; something the Vikings could learn from. What a [badWordUsage] shame Barry never seen a superbowl.

It would suck being a Lions fan. However, it does appear the Brass are committed to improving. It will be interesting to see what the do.....

What do lions fans think they should do?

Hey, they may as well trade that draft pick. Some of their recent high picks just haven't panned out frankly.

Lions fan here. Why dont know why, always have been one and wont jump the ship. Hopefully the new brass can pick some players that wont flop. Its gotta change someday. They need to address the oline 1st, and then somehow find a franchise QB. Not changing coaches like used underware might help as well. They have made some decent moves on D. Just hope they all mess and can stay healthy.

Btw I have a harrington jersey for sale if any wants

I'd take it, but I just threw my pocket change in the piggy bank and its a pain to get it out. You coulda been 78 cents richer.

BTW, all kidding aside, I had Kevin Smith on my fantasy team last year, and I think he is going to be a really good RB someday. He had some sparkling moments last season, and I think he will be around for awhile

Well with the curse of Bobby Lane " the lions will not win for fifty years" over 1958-2008. Our new Qb went to the same high school as lane did. Could this be an omen of better things to come. I just pray that they dont rush this kid and use the next 4 picks the right way. They may have a chance as millen nuts isnt around anymore.

well i told one of friends that the lions needed a tight end and low and behold they took one. Totally fits Scott L's offence ideas.

Looks like the Lions defense just received a measurable upgrade...Larry Foote, former Steeler, just signed a deal with them.

Lions will do better then the Queens this year, I HOPE!!!

Brian, you may be right, it looks as though the Lions are determined to improve their team this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see them go from last to first. Our division isn't a very tough division, it will be a close interesting season anyway.

I am not sure about first, but I also believe the Lions will be WAY more competitive this year. I feel they finish ahead of the bears this year!

“I always want to win,” Foote said. “If you ask my friends and family, if I don’t win, I get angry. I want to win by any means. You go to my house, and you see holes in the wall right now from video games. I’m a competitor. I want to win. I didn’t look at the record. I said, ‘Shoot, I’m going to help them.’ ”

Foote wants to help his hometown off the field, too. He just bought a house here. He will continue to be active in the community -- no matter where he plays in 2010 and beyond.

“Detroit is on the up-and-up,” Foote said. “We’re starting fresh with the football team. We’ve got a new mayor. We can’t do nothing but go up, to be honest.

“But people have got to be willing to roll up their sleeves and get to the root of it and turn things around, and I’m definitely one that’s on the positive side of that. I’m excited. Just off the field, just doing stuff in the community and reaching these young kids and getting this place turned around.”

I like this guy, maybe this will be a year that I wont have to have my head in the sand. That time has to come.

Chad.

my quess is 13-3 loss to pats in SB. Well, well maybe not. Give us 3 years. well, well lets see how this new management team works. So far the job has been good. Did a short term fix on the defence via free agents. Went O with the draft. Next year hopefully they go D in the draft and O free agents. Sounds like a good formula. Hell maybe farve will come here to get some more revenge?

    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.
