      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 .

Boston and KG

Recommended Posts

Just heard the report on ESPN that it sounds like Doc Rivers reported that KG might miss the whole post season with his knee.

Whats everyones thoughts?

Without KG they won't be repeating, I think it's Lebrons year anyways. He will win one for Cleveland and when his contracts up after next year, he will head for NY where a Monster Contract will be waiting for him.

No KG no chance. Well they have a chance, but not nearly as strong.

Cavs or Lakers, but I hope the Cav's get it. West is tough though. That would be a great final. Kobe vs LeBron!

As a Garnett fan this is some bad news for me. frown I still think if he can't get on the court and play the Celtics can make it to the Eastern conference finals. Overall the East is still weak. Without KG, it will be Cleveland heading to the finals.

GO CELTICS!

Tough break for Boston. With Garnett playing like a Madmen for 14 years, you knew his body was going to break down. He's a league veteran that still needs to learn to pace himself at this rate in his career.

Cant agree more. The guy is always going 100%, and at some point in his career he was going to break down. Tough times in boston right now

Is he due back sometime during the playoffs at all?

There not counting on him to be back at all. Sad that you play all flippen yaer and have another awesome season, and when you get to the playoffs, you get hurt. But the way he plays the game, im not suprised!

Wow, that's sad news.

On a side note, I didn't follow b-ball that close this year due to the wolves suckfest. I was suprised to see Star-berry on the celtics. I hate the attitude that kid has. He could have been great.

How ironic is it that Starbury and KG won't be playing together this year. Stephon will be signing in Europe next year...

He used to be my favorite player. There is nothing like watching an athletic point gaurd who can jump 2 feet above the rim and dunk an alley-oop pass. But you are right he scores 13 points the other night and they called it a great game. Very sad what has happend to that dude.......

After watching this series I have come to the conclusion that Kevin Garnett is one of the biggest tools in the shed. What a front runner, big mouth! I watched him strut and pose like a gorilla with his jaw extended....while the Celts were up, but when they were down he was no where to be found. He even left the bench at one point during the first game that the Bulls won, what a loser. Then he gets to sit on the bench and taunt the Bulls players, he should have been called for a technical foul many times during this series. Also, I know he is probably not a Rhodes Scholar, but does Garnett know any other words than MF? Everytime the camera caught him you could see MF this and MF that, what class. Hey Kev, either put on the uni and get in the game or sit there in your monkey suit and shut your pie hole! What a piece of garbage, he fits in perfectly with the rest of the thugs and whiners on the Celtics, what a downhill slide from what used to be a class organization!

How could you not like that emotion on your bench! That is the best part of KG is the emotion he shows whether he is playing the game or on the bench! Its a true love for the game. And I am pretty sure you would not see jalen rose or ben gordon or kirk flying through the lane for easy layups as much if he was playing in this series!!

About the game last night...WOW what a game!! But what is with rondo taking the last shot when you have Ray allen and eddie house in the game??? Terrible decision making!!

GR8,

Truly emotional players don't abandon their team when they are down like KG did in game one. I guess maybe he had to make tinkle, that's why he left the bench when the Bulls were winning. And why is he allowed to taunt the opposing players with no techical fouls? If he is a player then T him up! I am all for emotion but selective emotion is front running but that is the M.O. of the entire Celts team, yapping and running their mouths when they are up but quite as church mice when they are getting thumped! No room for front runners in my book.

And have you ever seen KG saying anything other than MF this and MF that when the cameras are on him during the games while he is on the bench? I sure have not.

Haha......I wen't to alot of games when he was in minny and its not just M.F. he say sh@t alot too! Usually when he misses a free throw or misses an easy shot!!

As far as abandoning his team in game 1....I too agree that it was a bad idea, but put yourself in his spot! He probably did not want to be a distraction to his team with all his emotion and i can totally see where that would cross his mind. I think that his teammates and coaches probably told him that they like his emotion even if it is coming from him in a suit and sitting on the bench! It fires up the team, how can a guy with that much emotion not fire up a team. I watch him and the things he does even on the bench and it gives me goose bumps!! Say what you want but even if he swears alot, he plays his guts out everytime and has a true love for the game of basketball! I guarantee you that if the celtics make it through round one, you will see kg in the playoffs!!!

    • Idk if I would use the winch rope, once that gets full of salt/chloride and sand I think it will get rotten.  I've been using winch rope on atv's since it first came out so I am fairly familiar and have broken a few of them.  I want to say I've seen a house with wide straps like seat belt material but I don't remember where.  The stainless steel cables are the best option besides going full hydraulic.  If I decide to build another one it will be hydraulic.
    • I'm not sure how good your buddies and family are at darts once they have a few pops?  But you may want to move the dart board to save your flat screen!  Just say'en!.
    • Are you going to finish the bottoms of the bunks? You'll be looking at the bottoms more than the tops.You're getting close, great feeling isn't it.
    • I retract the above statement 
    • Crops are out, sloughs are frozen.  Did very well on private ground in the Ortonville area this past weekend.
    • I bought the helix 5 SI mainly for a new summer unit since i didn't have GPS in the boat and with the intention of using the GPS for the ice at a minimum.  I figured it would be so/so on the ice but it actually worked really well in graph mode.  I am still fumbling around with some of the settings.  Naturally now that the new units have arrived i wish i would have waited for the newest offerings as they look to be a bit more geared toward the ice.
    • Your review is pretty much the same as my experience with my first gen Helix 5.  As a dual purpose unit it does fairly well on the ice but its a step below the dedicated ice units out there.  I bought mine because I do a lot of fishing from canoes so wanted a portable unit and it excels at that.  The fact that it works decently on the ice was a bonus.  I do ice fish but not as often as I used to and not enough to justify the cost of a dedicated ice unit.
    • That may be.  Like I said, I’m not into football THAT much so I’m basing my opinion on my gut and seeing the Vikings perform reliably for a change. I’ve actually had personal interactions with Green when he was coaching here.  He was OK but I wasn’t in awe of him.  I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m neutral there.
    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
