      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 .

I think the hit was blown out of proportion. His momentum was carrying him past the guy so he put his arm out to tackle the guy. The penalty was way too stiff. Dick "nighttrain" Lane used to tackle everyone just like it.

I agree that hit was legal it wasnt like a sack its a fast game and there was no control in the secondary $75,000 is way too much for a hit like that

I am glad they fined him $75,000 for the cheap shot of Ferguson. You could clearly see when he was on the sideline he couldnt even convince his own teamate's it was an accident. You show me one player who makes a tackle like that using his arm across a guys throat and then I will be convinced it wasnt a cheap shot. And dont say Nightrain lane, that was a different era of football.

The NFL has to make an example out of this guy with everything going on in sports today. Meaning the hit Burtuzzi laid on Moore in NHL, Detroit-Pacers brawl, chair throwing incident in Oakland with the Texas pitcher.

I would say $75,000 and suspended for the rest of the season would not be too big a penalty for that. Ferguson was paralyzed from the waist down for a few hours the afternoon after the hit. There is no way that hit can be called an accident. His career might be over, who knows.

I'm sure your opinion is slighted due to your Packer dislikes. Had that been Burleson laying on the dome turf with paralysis for a while, I think your opinion would be different. I know its a fast paced game, but players still need be able to have control over their bodies.

I agree with down to earth. He can say he was going for the ball, I tend to disagree. Jacksonville was up by 11 points I believe, the game was coming to an end... I think Darius took a cheap shot and the fine fit the penalty... even though it was a packer that got jacked. ( : There is no place for that in sports. I think he was sorry the second after he did it, but it was too late at that point.

I think that it was a great hit and he should be commended for laying out a greenbay packer like that. The vikes should do that to Favre this friday, only this time hit him a little harder so he's parylized.


I can only hope you are not serious with that comment. If you are you may need to look at sports and life from a different perspective. Nothing like wishing for someone to be paralyzed. Nice.

I thought it was a cheap shot and he should be suspended for at least one game. You can't convince me he was going for the ball. It is not a legal hit. Hoping that the Vikings do that to Farve? Big Island Dude are you sure you are a football and not a wrestling fan?

What should have he done to make the tackle? As you can see with the way both player's momemtum was taking them, the only way to make the tackle barring tripping the guy was by sticking his arm out somehow. would you have perferred a stiff arm to the chest, stomach or groin???

Maybe he should have tried to grab the jersey and pull him down? ONly Joey Browner "the strongest hands in football" could have done that. grin.gif

I don't think it was a intentional malicious hit. When you have only a split second to MAKE A PLAY! There is not a lot of time to think. I don't think letting Fergie go by untouched was an option Darius or his Jax coaches wanted.

Temporarily paralyzed? And released after only one full day in the hospital? C'mon!!!!

A little theatrics with the thumbs up the ENTIRE way across the field makes me a little suspicious too!

The guy couldn't feel his legs. I'm guessing that counts as temporarily paralyzed.

Here is a thought that everyone should remember regardless of the hit being legal or not. Ferguson was severely injured, not faking it and did nothing other than to go up and get the ball. The fear of the player, his teamates and the fans about his health is legit and should not be wished upon anyone.

Here is that all the Vikes and Pack go home to their holidays healthy after a great game. Vikes win of course.

If he was going to try to hurt the guy he would have went in with his helmet. You are in the air flying past the guy and you have no other way of making contact with except with your arm. What do you do just let him go by or do you stick your arm out and make contact. I rather have a forearm hit me than a helmet with a whole body behind it. Blown way up. Only in Packer country.

If Burelson had been hit by Farve that way I say the same thing. Out for the rest of the season. No excuses, period. There are no excuses for what happened. Do you think he had no control over the movement of his arm and it accidently hit his opponent in the head?

Did the NFL change the rule on blows to the head? Last I knew it wasn't legal; doesn't matter if it was accidental or not. I've seen many plays where the DB back goes for a hit an delivers a blow to the head. Are they intentional? NO. Is accidental? Yes. Does the player still get fined? Yes.

It was a good hit. It is not like he grabbed this helmet and pulled him to the ground. He is out there trying to do his job and what happened, happened. It is not a good thing that furguson got hurt from that play and I hope he makes a good come back, but that is football.

I watch the game for the big hits and big plays. It's what makes the game exciting, but to wish that someone gets hurt is wrong.

Viks are going on a run. See you in the superbowl.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.

      I'm 4-5 hours South, but my cousin texted me yesterday and said guys are walking out from the North side of French.  He said there's still open water on the South side though.

      @river rat316 is turning into a walleye guy Boo!  Just let me know when you want to fish for gills again.
    • crappie king 42
      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch 
    • Kettle
      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.
