      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 .

Your thoughts of this weeks game

Recommended Posts

Scott K

With the viking on a wining streak, (1) AP coming off a great game, T-Jack with a decent game, the head coach seeing what happens if you give AP the ball, and a couple good catches by the recievers, will the game be in reach at the 4th quarter? I think the Vikings will play hard to try to prove themselves as a team.

The Vikings offense looked better last week, even playing the bears defense. Although in the end, I think Cowboys by 10, there offense is passing, inwhich is our weak point. I think it will be a good game.

What do you guys think?

I feel that we have a good chance to be in it if they can keep Owens some what contained and Witten too we should be able to stay close with very little mistakes.

AP makes it a lot easier for Jackson to pass. As longs and butter fingers can actually hold on to the ball should be fun to watch. Wait it is football it is always fun to watch.

I bleed purple but I think the cowboys passing attack will be too much for the viking secondary. I hope T-Jack can have a geat game, and AP rushes for another big day!! Good Luck Vikes!!

The way the vikings play i don't think the outcome will not be decided headed into the 4th quarter. They'll be able too run the ball and there will be opportunities too get some shots in deep, but once again its if any can be complete. You know teams are going too try and load up on the run. And i gotta believe one of these games intsead of getting none or 1 of the 5 deep balls on target he'll get 3 of them and that will be fun. A young QB's game is inconsistent and one of these games the ball will be on target and the recievers will catch em'. But i'd be foolish too predict a win. Cowboys 27-16.

Well it looks like the Vikings will be on tv again, barely! I will watch the game, it should be a good game, there will be the best 2 running backs playing each other.

As for my thoughts of this weeks game, I think the Vikings will come out ahead this week, and next week of course grin.gif . Vikings by a touch down!!!!

I play in three leagues and all total will have V.Jackson, Chambers, gates, LT, and the Chargers DEF going this week. And I also took the Chargers as my Eliminator (suicide/King of the Hill) pick.

Some guy in my FF league dropped Jamal Lewis 2 weeks ago. I quickly picked him up, and was a smiling fool last night- 4 tds + over 100 total yards.

I think AP will rush for 160 yds, score 2 td's, I think Sharper will have a couple int's, in the end Vikings 27-24.

Packers might win again but not by 2 TD's. Look for Bollinger too connect again on a few longballs this time. Holcomb missed several opportunities the first game. Bollinger will hit a few and make the pack pay for loading up the box. I think the vikings have a good chance. Momemtum can mean a lot and they have it after last weeks performance. It will be interesting if the vikings try too put heat on Favre like they did against the Chargers. It will not work as well but if you make Favre rush things he throws INT's. It will also be interesting too see how AP does again. I read something that said that AP really worked on being patient and waiting for the crease too open before the chargers. The coaches thought he was at times forcing the issue and not being patient. If the line plays like it did against the chargers AP will run loose all game long again. Its almost as if you dont care if a defense loads up on the run because you can stop him for no gain 2 times in a row and then just 1 crease and forget it, he cuts and you are not catching him. AP will get his, I think Bollinger will get his too with a few downfield shots. Now the question is if the defense can play like it did last week. A viking win wouldnt shock me, but if i had too pick a winner i'd take GB 23-20.

after all the stars shine (Favre, AP) the game will be decided by Crosby or Longwell. How sweet would it be to see Longwell kick a game winner for the Queens at the girl with the curl???

Vikes 22-20

How embarrassing, this was the worst game I have seen the Vikings play in about 6 years. Could anything go right? Well the good thing is we should have a really good draft pick this spring. After last week, I had false hopes for this team, not anymore.

Is Brad Childress the worst coach to ever hit the Vikings?

It's unbearable to watch him run our team each week. It's the end of the game, we're on the verge of a shutout, we could maintain some dignity and at least get some points on the board.

Nope. Not under chilly's watch. Instead of bringing in Longwell (well within his range), 4th and 7 with 51 seconds left. throw a 3 yard pass over the middle when you have no timeouts left.

Unbelievable...

It hurts to watch everytime after a win, its like brad gives the team the week off. We always get the pick of the litter dont we. Hats off to the green and gold they sure were prepared. And played theyre butts off.

I agree Childress is horrible, but he didnt drop them 4 int's that were handed to our defence, or drop almost every pass thrown to out recievers! I agree there wasnt a game plan, if there was it wasnt very good.

Childress could not put a game plan together to save his life!! I have seen so many times this year, at a crucial moment/situation, the camera shows him, looking at his "kick a** offense" playbook, look back to the field, look at the playbook.. complete deer in the headlights..

We got lucky last week. We won't see a game like that again this year. Thats for sure.

      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!

      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?

      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
