      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.

We'll see how these final two weeks play out in the NFC I may end up agreeing with you on this point.

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.

      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
    • leech~~
      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!
    • RuddyDuck
      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.
    • gimruis
      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!
    • proguide
      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.
    • CigarGuy
      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.
    • delcecchi
      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
