      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 .

Gopher Hockey - Done!!!

Recommended Posts

Wayne Sieber

Guys - A whole lot of ranting and raving going on here but....Am I done supporting the Gopher Hockey Program? Heck NO!! Hardcore Fan here, I will never quit on these guys and this season but I tell you what, I am DONE watching Gopher Hockey on FSN North! I don't know about anyone else, but after tonight,especially when FSN cut out for a short time and showed the Wisconsin Badger/UMD game instead (I don't know why this happened by the way?)in the second period and I saw just how loyal and positive the annnouncers were about Badger Hockey, that was it. I am so dang sick of the negativity and downing of the Gophers by "muskrat head" Mazocko and Dud Woog this whole season, total [PoorWordUsage] man. I am totally shutting this piece of [PoorWordUsage] duo down on my TV this year. I know that some of you guys think those two losers are "homers" but it was sure nice when the Badgers announcers were nothing but positive and cool about nothing but Badger Hockey. One thing I know is that I have never heard Mazocko scream so loud when the Gophers scored an overtime goal (and yep, I know it has been a while...) like UND did tonight (dang Sioux..) Good Bye FSN.....

to be fair, the maroon and gold haven't given the dudly duo much good to talk about this year.

PS, if you think the gopher broadcasts are bad on FSN, wait until you have to watch all their games on the BigTen Network. Talk about a a cold and sterile broadcast.

I have to agree with Dead on this one. The team looked like they didn't even want to be out there near the end of the 3rd period.

They basiclly looked tired and let NoDak take the play to them.

And oh ya FSN really stinks. They should have just left the Badger game on! ole

As for the Big-Ten Network, I wish they would come up with a compromise with Comcast because I'm tired of not being able to watch the games..

I think you need to get off the ledge FeetDown. Wooger is fairly objective and usually calls it like he sees it, with a "slight" Gopher POV. There is not much of a bigger homer than Mazacko. He wouldn't give credit a team not wearing maroon and gold if his life depended on it. Wouldn't you rather have them call an ojective game, pointing out good play and bad, what can be improved on and what's working instead of blowing smoke and sugar plumb fairies? Each and every FSN Gopher hockey broadcast is heavily slanted promoting the Gopher nation - no doubt about that. I think it's good that they're being honest about the team's situation.

Yes, FSN was bad last night but I'm glad they changed it back to the gophs/und game for the 3rd period and OT, you wouldnt want to miss Trupp's game winner in ot

That was a nice goal for sure. I hated to see the Gophers lose, but at least it was a great play.

Totally agree with Shorelunch! As for Trupp's game winner, it was so sweet it even made the ESPN highlights this morning!

Quite obvious they are going to promote "gopher nation"...afterall, that is the team they cover the entire year! Evidently it isn't that obvious to you fellows??? It would be like watching Vikings weekly and have the entire show be about the Packers. Here's a tip...don't like it, don't watch...it's called free will! Instead watch the channel that covers the sue...wait, there isn't one! Well hopefully a station out of Winnipeg or Moose Jaw will pick up coverage at some point! Good luck!

Hey genius, I was referring to the FSN UMtc propaganda network. BTW, UND does have their own broadcasts of their home games.

No go crawl back in your little gopher hole . . .

Sometimes the truth hurts. Hardcore Gopher fan here too but they've turned out to be less than average this year. Even a broadcaster can't screw that up.

Fireworks aside at the end of the game, I thought that the last 6 minutes or so of regulation and then the OT period was pretty entertaining as far as end to end action. I don't think there was a whistle for the last 5-6 minutes of regulation. Both goalies made some clutch saves for sure.

Guess everyone has their opinion. I enjoy the Wooger/Frank combo most of the time. Tough for the announcers to always stay positive when they see things that need a lot of improvement. It's just an off year for the Goph's. I believe they will be better next year, although I still see less offensive talent than usual. Goaltending has improved with thier freshman Kangas.

I thought that OT goal on Friday was pretty exciting. From what I've seen in the last year or two, it's in my top five.

I was watching quite a bit of the Bulldog/Badger game on Friday. Lucky if your broadcast switched to this game, because both of my FSN games switched to the Best D### Sports Show with Snoop Dog for the 2nd period! And as a Bulldog fan I got pretty sick of the Badger broadcaster (where was Sags?) knocking Stalock's style of play. Yes it's different, and yes it might at times be a liability when he's out of position. Still versus Connelly, he has a better win %, better save %, better GAA, and generates some offense.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
