      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 .

Hakstol suspended two games

Recommended Posts

IFallsRon

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – University of North Dakota co-acting athletic directors Betty Ralston and Steve Brekke announced today that UND head men’s hockey coach Dave Hakstol has been suspended for its next two games for his actions during a men’s hockey game Saturday at the University of Minnesota.

Ralston said the disciplinary action was determined by the University of North Dakota and was made independent of any decision or action by the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

“We hold all University of North Dakota coaches and student-athletes to the highest standards of sportsmanship, conduct and ethical behavior,” Ralston said. “We expect our coaches to keep themselves and their teams in control at all times. Profane language and poor behavior on the part of our coaches and student-athletes is unacceptable.”

no surprise there, though I wonder if Maturi will hold ol' Donnie to the same standard (I don't recall seeing a closeup of his profanities on Saturday's games though).

If the WCHA, ECHL or any league started suspending coaches for verbal cursing from the bench you won't have any coaches left. I think the big difference between Lucia and Hackstol is the gesture by Hakstol left no question in anyones mind, whether you were behind the bench, on the ice, at home on the couch or in the rafters. Having to read lips to know they cursed is a different animal and a very common thing in all sporting events.

UND did do this on their own but only after an ultimatum that the WCHA commish would step in if they did not dole out the appropriate penalty.

Him and Eades probably have that gesture as part of their practices...

I like how rodent fans have nothing to quip about other than this after losing 3 out of 4 pts to the Sioux. I agree that what Hak did was unacceptable and he got a reasonable punishment, but calling the guy classless is going a bit far. He got caught up in the emotions of a game and is paying the price, but let

s not forget this is a coach who has done tons of great things outside of the hockey rink including sending his players to help with cleanup after the tornado in Northwood, ND.

All this talk that he disrespected the game of college hockey and what not is a bunch of overblown nonsense by a bunch of bitter rodent fans, I mean it wasn't like he paid someone to write papers and complete their homework for them. whistle.gif

Was the tornado clean-up part of how he handled the underage drinking?

So you want to let him off the hook because he did some nice things also?

I don't know the guy so I can't tell you if he is classless or not. I can tell you that it was a classless act and no excuses should be made.

So, lets see:

Lucia dropping "vocal" numerous f'bombs = acceptable

Hakstol using the gesture = unacceptable

Too bad FSN doesn't release the audio of the Goof's bench.

I don't condone what Hakstol did at all, but the almighty Gopher fans shouldn't be tossing stones. BTW, I wouldn't say the UMtc program has been the "classiest" program over the past decade . . . Barney's, riots . . .

I'm not upset a bit about Hakstol being out for a couple of games. I've always thought that Eades would be a better head coach for the Sioux.

I purposely left out any reference to underage drinking because

A.) I remember being in college and what I did underage and I think there are others here in the same boat.

B.) We all know that the rodents had their own little incident at Blarneys not to long ago. If we want to talk about putting a black eye on your university I think having the local news channel broadcast your underage hockey players drinking at a bar does a pretty good job.

Since you brought it up though, let's put all the facts out there and leave it as college kids doing as college kids do.

I have to agree. If they started suspending everyone for the verbal stuff there wouldn't be too many players/coaches left to play the games. Hakstol's "gesture" left no doubt.

If Lucia was the only coach to have his lips read on TV you might have a point. If he held a sign up above his head that said, "You (F Bomb) suck", you might have a point. Like I said before, you did not need to hear, or be close to understand what Hakstol was saying. You could have seen it from the rafters.

You can discuss the underage drinking and the vandalism after the National Championship if you would like but I thought this was about Hakstol's suspension. If you really believe, the Sioux is the program to follow or be like, you would talk about how you are above this kind of stuff and not excuse it, not how everyone else has their issues also.

Did I say I wanted to let him off the hook? No, I said he was wrong and got punish justly. Hakstol made a mistake, he apologized, he is taking his punishment and will move on and learn from it hopefully. But let's not characterize a guys entire career on one gesture. It's amazing how one bad thing a person does gets vilified more than all of the good they do.

Just for the Record Hakstol was a bit of chop himself on the ice.

I agree on Eades and maybe he'll get the job especially if the Sue don't crank it up and win the title SOON.

How many more years can you give him to win a title in the hollowed pastures of Dakota land?....LOL.

I'm sure Woog would have received 2 games instead of 1 game if there was a picture of Woog plastered all over the INTERNET like the one currently circulating with your boy Hakstol... grin.gif

PM for a copy of that one.... ;\)

Just for the record....Nobody here has called Hakstol our "Boy" nor do we support what he did. You and the other bitter whiners should all get together and have one big Gopher group hug and get over last weekend and this season for that matter.

I was over the Gophers season before it started a rocket science course wasn't needed to determine the Gophers were going nowhere this year.

I predicted in these forums that the Gophers would not Finnish in the top 4 of the conference and an NCCA bid for the Gophers was a pipe dream......So I don't need a hug!

Actually it seems a few of the ND posters are the ones whining and taking this a little to seriusly.....get over it the Gophers have more recent NCAA's titles "2" and Conference championships then the Sue.

Deal with it!.... grin.gif

But, lets not forget the Sioux have 2 titles since 1997, and last time I checked 7 is a bigger number than 5. So however you wish to spin the numbers to make the gophers look good is your issue we still have more total than you do. But let's not dwell on the past lets dwell on the present \:\) How about them Gophers?

Ho boy. Now we're on to "recent" titles. Face it, that big M stands for mediocrity. Now I've got to admit, I was a bit busy with the fishing and didn't really scrutinize the play on Sat. Going by what I hear from Jeff Dubay's "unbiased" analysis, the Sioux threw in some pretty bad cheap shots at the end. If so, hopefully they get the proper punishment. I will say that historically the Sioux haven't had a cheap and run policy like some of their big rivals but more an in your face bashing. None of us know what was being said on the ice and most of us were not seeing the action behind the play. Knew quite a few of the players during my stint at UND and was pretty interesting to hear stories of what was actually transpiring on the ice. Many times it had nothing to do with the game. Often something from a summer league or even something in their hometowns. I personnally liked seeing the intensity that the rivalry seemed to gain over the weekend. Been pretty tame the past few years.

The Sioux fans, some of which are from and live in the great state of Minnesota, don't whine one bit. We simply state facts and support our team when too many whining gopher lovers bash them. Bryce, I will assume that your sweet Fighting Sioux flag is still flying! Go Sioux!

Putting all of the banter aside as to who is better, tougher and so on I have a note on Dave Hakstol and UND AD Ralston. Take it as you may but this is what transpired and as a side note I am a die hard Gopher Hockey fan.

I emailed both the AD and Hakstol on the night of the gesture as I have a 4 year old that is VERY into hockey and was watching. He can tell you the events of the game for several days after they occur so my main concern was does he now think that is what you do if you don't like the refs call? I expressed to both of them that I was very disappointed that my son had to see this and again noted that kids are watching and learning how to play the game and also how to handle yourself. Both Coach Hakstol and AD Ralston took the time and responded to my email with an apology in return. I appreciate that, even as a Gopher fan, as we all make mistakes and it appears he has taken responsibility for his.

      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.

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155.

      Anglers and others interested in Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Grand Marias area lakes and streams are invited to review and comment on management plans scheduled for review this fall. This annual process includes several waters located within the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). Comments on lakes within the BWCAW will be accepted until Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW, will extend through Feb. 15. A management plan identifies specific management activities planned for a lake or stream over the next five to 20 years, including any proposed stocking or special regulations. “Management plans are our best single sources of information on past, present and desired future conditions in our lakes and streams,” said Steve Persons, Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor. “Comments and suggestions from those most interested in these waters are crucial when it comes to making plans and determining management success. For anglers this is the best opportunity to influence how these lakes and streams are managed.” In the Grand Marais area, plans for the following lakes and streams will reviewed this winter. Lake plans under review: The status and preservation of native lake trout populations will be the primary concern in plans being revised for Blue Snow and Gabimichigami Lakes. Both are located inside the BWCAW. Stream trout stocking and management strategies will be reviewed in Thompson, Thrush, Turnip, Olson, Kraut, Little Portage, Olga, Mavis (BWCAW), Missing Link (BWCAW), Meditation (BWCAW), Talus, Trout, Pine (near Two Island Lake), Unnamed (near Tom Lake), Chester, Extortion, and North Shady Lakes. Options to consider include changes in species, reductions in stocking frequency, and changes in the number or size of fish stocked. In Mine, Peanut, Weasel (Sled), Tomato, Trip, and Rog (BWCAW) Lakes, fisheries managers are considering eliminating trout stocking, due to the high cost of stocking remote lakes by air, poor survival of stocked fish, or use that appears to have been too low to justify the cost of continued stocking.  Angler feedback on fisheries in these lakes is critically needed for these important decisions. Plans for Devilfish, Gust, Hand, and Tom Lakes will be reviewed with attention to the status and needs of walleye fisheries in those lakes. Moore Lake will be reviewed to determine whether it offers any potential for panfish management. Plans for several lightly-used BWCAW lakes in the area, including Caribou (by Clearwater), Clove, Kiskadinna, Long, Mora, Morgan, Skipper, and Tepee Lakes will be reviewed. Those plans will be revised primarily to incorporate any new survey data that may have been obtained, and to establish survey schedules for the next few years. Streams plans under review: Plans for Beaverdam Creek and the Swamp River will be reviewed.  Both are marginal trout streams, and may be considered for removal from the State’s list of designated trout streams. Plans for the Cascade River, Elbow Creek, and the Onion River will also be reviewed. All three support thriving brook trout populations, with the Cascade and Onion Rivers also supporting steelhead and salmon in their lower reaches. Plans will focus on habitat and water quality, hydrology and watershed issues. The DNR is considering removing the portion of Elbow Creek above Elbow Lake from the State’s list of designated trout streams, since no trout have been found in that part of the stream in recent surveys. Current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information are available for review at the DNR’s Grand Marais area fisheries office, at 1356 E. Highway 61, Grand Marais, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information, call or email Steve Persons at 218-387-6022 or steve.persons@state.mn.us. Public comments on management of BWCAW waters are due by Dec. 20. The comment period for lakes and streams outside the BWCAW will extend through Feb. 15. Comments, suggestions and other feedback on the management of these, and all other streams and lakes in the area are welcomed at any time and will be considered when those plans are next due for review. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
