      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 .

How many of you.......

fantasy football players auction off your team when you are having a terrible season? I am 1-8-1 in one of my 3 leagues and everyone wants McGahee, Gonzalez and Hasselbeck. I'm not willing to trade because that's not who I am, but how many of you would trade? I have to mention that the guy leading is a pain in the butt, and the buy-in is $200, so I don't want to see him win. grin.gif

Down to Earth

As long as you were getting fair value in return and not making lop sided trades to the other owners I would have no problem with you making those trades if I was in your league. I've always been of the opinion that good teams have every right to get better as well. If the upper guys have good depth at one particular position and want to trade away that depth to make up for weaknesses in other positions to get ready for the playoff run then more power to them.

Just my .02 worth.

Yeah, it's getting to that time of the year when trade deadlines loom. I'm in 3 leagues, on pace for gold, silver, and bronze in each of them right now, and I'm looking to do what Down to Earth described. I'm weak at WR in my first place league with L. Coles and D. Mason, but am strong at RB with M. Lynch, J. Addai, and C. Portis. I could deal one RB that I can't play each week anyways for a better WR.

We'll see how it goes. I offered Portis for Colston but the Colston owner knows the Saints are heating up....

I agree in both of the scenarios, but I was wondering how many people have a complete "yardsale" of sorts (ie. Portis for Betts, or Hasselbeck for Kelly Holcombe). I'm all for a beneficial trade for both parties, but I hate to see good players leave a losing team in a lopsided trade.

If you had a "yardsale in my league with a (Contact Us Please) team you would definitely not be invited to play again next year. To do something like that is just bush league.

That is the response I expected to get and EXACTLY the way I feel.

True. That's why leagues need good commissioners or voting on all trades.

Even worse is when somebody just drops everybody and then its a waiver wire fire sale.

FFB should bring managers of the same skill level or experience to prevent those things from happening. Or just play for money so people actually care what they do (Gambling ruins families and in no way do I condone it grin.gif)

in our league we have 3 guys that overview any rules/trades. I am one of those lucky guys and have had to nix trades and call out an infraction last year that cost a guy the championship and $800 dollars..... tongue.gif

That was another reason for posting this. We also have a commitee to review trades that involve the commish. I was involved in a trade with the commish about a month ago where I traded Boldin for De Shaun Foster and Phillip Rivers. I had no back-up QB (for Hasselbeck) and my running backs were not living up to expectations (McGahee and Jones-Drew). I was deep at WR and in a league where WR get a lot of points, if you have 3 starters, you're pretty much set. So, the "commitee" (which consisted of the 2nd place team and I was trading with the 1st place commish) decided it was unfair and that there was some collusion involved. It ended up going to the league as a vote and was ultimatley allowed. So far that trade has not made a difference for either team. I guess it's not as easy when money is involved......although I don't condone gambling grin.gif

I was offered a 12 pack of beer for Reggie Bush. I replied that I am not a whore and my integrity is worth more than a case of beer. He said that he was only offering a 12 pack.

      Good hearing from you, always enjoyed reading of you & Doc's adventures.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!
    • JTeeth
      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately. 
    • monstermoose78
      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
