      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 .

Is Moss going to hang it up.

Sounds to me like Moss is just getting sick of football. He says he never liked it anyway. He liked basketball better. I would not be surprised if he hangs it up in a year or two. Probably before Favre does, who knows.

Muskybuck... DROP THE CRACK PIPE, EASE AWAY FROM THE WATER BONG, STAY OFF ALL DRUGS AND GO ADMIT YOURSELF TO THE JOE BUCK SCHOOL OF SMART PEOPLE.

I'll make a side bet with you on your prediction...

You can stop denying the fact that Favre is going to retire sooner than you like... This should be a good thing if he tosses up 4 interceptions per game... maybe he can get fumbleitis boy Ahman Green to join him...

When has Moss hinted at retirement, which Favre has done repeatedly? Given Favre's horrible performances in the playoffs (the INT against Philly last year, the SIX interceptions against the Rams a few years ago, and last week's egg against the Vikings), his desire to quit is understandable. Moss, love him or hate him, is still at the peak of his skills, as his two TD performance against the Packers (on a bad ankle) last weekend showed.

Wishing something were true does not make it so. If it did, I would make a post titled "'eyehunter wins ten million dollars and marries Britney Spears." grin.gif

I just heard on ESPN that the packers are going to try and sign Ryan Leaf and if he shuts them down they'll go after Scott Mitchell.

Please tell me when Randy Moss kicked a man to death for welshing on a gambling debt, as Don King did in the fifties.

who knows when moss will retire- as a viking fan, who cares. what we should care about is: when will the vikes wake up and get rid of moss. either trade him or if you cannot get anything for him just release him. I would bet any of you moss lovers that as long as he is on the team we will not win the big one

Kev,

If you want to use that reasoning, then you can blame every player ever to don the purple.

I think our chances are better with him than without him.

Recievers like Moss are a dime a dozen. There is nothing special about him except the media hype that tried to make a hero out of him. I think they (media) have given up on him now too. He is just one of many good receivers. The Vikes would have no trouble replacing him with receivers wanting to come and play with Culpepper.

And what brand of crack are we smoking today?

Moss- average reciever, dime a dozen?

MB, I know you are just trying to get the fires going with comments like that...It worked on me, hope it does not work on others who may get a little more upset than I. grin.gif

He has talent but what does he do to the rest of the team. He tells a lineman that he does not care what he thinks? If you have ever been a part of a team you know that all it takes is one bad link to drag the rest down. Moss being the bad link. Again he has talent but it takes more than talent to win the big games

It does seem the media has given up on him. You hardly hear anything about anything he does.

I don't think Moss will be going anywhere as he seems to be a favorite of McCombs. Though through what I've read a bit in the paper down here in Rochester there may be some rumblings within the organization both from a player and personnel perspective with the attitude that he needs to either get his head on straight or get rid of him and that Tice did say noone was untouchable as far as trade value goes. Not quite sure what kind of trade value he would bring for the Vikes. Tice is as much to blame as anyone as he seems to not hold any accountability with him. Linehan most likely will be gone, so it would be interesting to see how Moss would work with a new offensive coordinator. If the Vikes did end up trading Moss and were able to replace him with solid defensive players they probably would be better off. I think they played quite well during his absence this year with the loses blamed more on the defense than Moss not being in the lineup. Culpepper is the key to the Vikes offense not Moss.

Moss is definately one of the best receivers, no doubt. But he is easily replaced with another of the best receivers. To think the Vikes can not get along without him, I do not think is true. I think good receivers are the easiest of all the positions to get quality people in. One of the biggest problems the Vikes have right now is the idea that they can not get along with out Moss. That is one of the reasons Moss has such an attitude. Culpepper's the man!!

Q: Why doesn't Iowa have a professional football team?

Iowa Barnstormers Arena Football Team

Minnesota has a football team...remember the first week of the playoffs? Green Bay played them.

Musky I think you make some valid points about the vikes, we definately would have won more games with 3 quality defensemen and no Moss. Although I am not sure if Burleson was a legit reciever at the beginning of the year but he certainly is now. The defense definately lost us more games than Moss won, I still say keep him around and I don't think there is much of a choice. You will not be able to trade him with his salary and I just can't see the vikes letting him go. Say what you will about him I still think he is the best reciever in the game.

Looks like Reggie Fowler is stepping up to make an offer on the vikes, sounds like we will know in about 2 weeks if that is going to happen or not. Who knows if this will be better or worse than Red. Denny Hecker is going to be the figure head and they have financial backers out of NY. They are commited to leaving the team in MN so I guess that is good. But we will see if any of this actually happens.

Hopefully this pushes Taylor up to the plate.

That is a long way from your previous statement of "a dime a dozen". It would not be hard to sell me on trading him with high value defense. You say easily replaced with one of the best receivers. I can think of one, maybe, two that come close to replacing him and that is only if attitude is factored in. Was it the media hype that gave him the best stats of any receiver in the first six years of his career or was it the stats that created the hype? If anything, his attitude is what is "common" in the NFL, but we just get to see his because of his lack of concern about perception and his high profile.

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy
