      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 .

Anyone see that run by Selvyn Young down too the 5 yardline that called back by a holding call? You guys see the replays? Where was the holding?? You ever see such a phantom call?? Another team that basically got points taken off the board against the pack by the refs, imagine that.

All that matters is the Packer's won and you can add 1 more highlight reel to the many he already has. The man starts the game with a 79yrd td pass to Jones then ends the game with an 82 yrd td Jennings, how sweet is that....

Exactly. Who's better than Brett Favre? (rhetorical question). That was just amazing last night seeing the "old guy" pumping 70+ yd TD passes like he was just out of college. Sure makes it fun to watch.

I would take Tom Brady any day. Maybe even Peyton Manning. If you match Favre in his hay day to these too, they would win I think. Favre is a great QB, but I get so sick of the comentators stroking him it makes me wanna puke.

I was going to say Brady and Manning also. Favre had been playing excellent ball this year without a running game and a few rookie wideouts, not much more the guy can do. Can you imagine if Favre had a line like Brady with all the protection then all the weapons he has around him, now that would be something.

Oh, no question I'd rather have Brady, Manning, or even Romo on my team before Favre, but that's why I said "rhetorical question". Who's better to watch light it up for a big play than Favre...he has his moments where it's just something great to watch. The three previously mentioned are methodical in their approach but Favre has to make it happen himself with the lack of talent that surrounds him. Sometimes that means going off the script to get it done and nobody does, or has done, it better than Favre.

I just think there are very few like him in the NFL (all positions) that play the game the way he does, and you could probably count them on one hand, but Manning and Brady aren't included on that list regardless of their stats, IMO.

He is a very fun QB to watch everyweek. What I want to know is where are all the Favre haters from the past years on here, they have been quite all year long I wonder why?

You mean like Brady has had his entire career until this year no recievers and average running backs at best.

You do have to give Favre credit his last few years have been terrible almost embarrassing really just about everyone thought he should retire.

Fun to watch for sure inspite of the tool packer fans. shocked.gif

Ok, I will bite grin.gif. You guys have been listening to the comentaters for to long, you are begging to sound just like them! I would rather watch the vikings loose, then have to watch the packers win because the refs need to help them win grin.gif After 30+ years of playing in the nfl, I too would hold alot of records grin.gif.

I'm sure that call was a lot different than the questionable ones that went against the Pack to keep some Bronco drives alive. Pack had 13 penalties for 103 yards vs the Broncos who had 9 for 63 yards. I guess I'm missing our gripe.

While I like Tony Romo, I think it's a bit premature to mention him with those other QBs. He's had roughly 1 year where he's been the starter. At times he's been fantastic and others pretty terribe (5 pic game a few weeks ago).

As for Favre, he's still got talent and a lot of enthusiasm for the game which makes him fun to watch. He's had one bad year in his career (2005), where the team finished with a losing record. Other than that He's led the team to a 500 or better season, which is pretty impressive given todays NFL and the volatilty of rosters.

Anyone who says they wouldn't want a QB who brings that type of success to their team for that long, is lying through their teeth.

Sound like anyone you know? grin.gif

Farve is an outstanding QB and had a great game last night. One call doesn't ever change a game completely but it may only change the part of the game after it. Did the ref blow the call? IMO, yes. Should that be an excuse for Denver to lose? No, they still got inside the 10 anyways and failed to get it in the endzone. All that said, GB has been the beneficiary of two questionable calls at key times that are at least partially responsible for two wins. I didn't see the early part of the game but the two key penalties I saw on GB in the late Denver drive (Bigby and Woodson) were legit.

I still think its hilarious that Farve demanded a trade after TT didn't deal for Moss. Fast young receivers can make any old fart look good. Remember Cunningham?

2 / 20 yards came in the last 30 seconds of the first half. I looked at the wife and said, "they are just making these calls now to even the box score later.

Here we go........

You guys whining about bad calls and Favre not being any good sure sound like the bears fans down here. I really thought you guys were better than that! LOL Can't you just give credit where credit is due?? We'll see where Brady and Manning end up at the end of their careers. Heck, Aikman made the hall of fame with basically a pro bowl team aroung him every year and stats that aren't in the same league with any of the others mentioned.

Be honest, give him his due.

Freddie,

Where did anyone say Farve wasn't any good? I believe a few said Manning and Brady were better but that is hardly a insult.

We are whining for saying what the announcers pointed out also. The same guys announcing the game who fall all over themselves to compliment Farve said it was a questionable call. If that was a hold, they should be calling a hold on almost every play in a game. I am not saying the guy didn't hold but the refs probably let 20 other plays with blocks like that go earlier in the night.

perhaps the refs are friends of tim donnaghey(sp.) confused.gif

seems like some have never seen a bad call before. and it was a bad call, but they happen all the time. if that score holds up that also gives favre more time to go down and score. you never know

Questionable calls like Atari Bigby hitting a reciever out of bounds? Or Atari Bigby mugging a reciever? A horrible phantom holding call, no way you can dispute it, basically too points off the board for the broncos. Simple as that. Just simply saying its alot easier for a team too win on the road when the home team gets points taken away. Am i saying it cost the broncos the game? He!! no, they should have put the game too rest at the end of regulation. Its just rediculous too see a call like that. It just makes a person wonder what the ref is seeing too throw that flag. I guarantee the ref who threw that flag and the ref who blew the fumble dead against the vikings both got their rear ends handed too them.

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
