      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 .

Did anyone see this article in the sport section this morning?? How in the (you know what) can this guy be named the top GM in sports?? The guy is aweful with the decision's he has made, heck look what he has done to the Wolves. They had Terry Ryan ranked like #53, he should be #1 while McHale is at the bottom of the list

It was a hugely flawed ranking system. First, it is based on your predecessor. McHale took over an expansion franchise, so of course his tenure will have a higher winning percentage than the previous. Secondly, it is based on wins per dollar. The team was only paying the luxury tax the two years we had Cassell and Sprewell. Every other year the had a pretty average payroll. McHale can give all his wins to Garnett and Flip. And since they had all those first round playoff exits they are scored high for even getting there and winning enough games in the regular season to do so on a modest payroll.

Hugely flawed system that doesn't penalize for his cheating with Joe Smith (and subsequent loss of draft picks for like, 50 years), free agent and trade decisions, and horrible draft history. Who do you turn to for basketball advice or rankings, Forbes or ESPN?

Pretty sure it was Glen Taylor who signed the Napkin in the Joe Smith debacle........how Mchale got us through that and a stones throw from the NBA TITLE I'll never know..... grin.gif

I know how the Detroit Loins fans feel. Mchale is the Matt Millen of the NBA.

Dont get me wrong Mchale as a player was great and he also has a great mind for the game. GM material he is not. Started strong with Garnett and Flip, but after that Garnett and Flip are the ones that produced the playoff and Mchale only made mistakes after that.

He traded Ray Allen and a 1st rounder for Stephon Marbury and passed on Richard Hamilton and Shawn Marion for Wally Serbeaik(spelling)

What really gets me is that he is listed 52 spots higher than one of the best GM's of all time Terry Ryan.

Just my opinion.

McHale is a terrible GM... its as simple as that. When you have a player like KG on the team, he's gonna keep you in contention but your never gonna get over that hump to a championship. The worst thing he did was not get players to support the big ticket. Mchale and a bullhead are very similar, NOBODY LIKES THEM!

PierBridge- You have got to be kidding me. I am huge McHale fan viewing him as a player and person, but as a GM he needs to go!! That list you were talking about..... Joe Smith( I know you blame Taylor, but a GM is responsible for all personel decisions), Sam Cassell for Marko "Worthless", firing Flip Saunders, Endi Ibi(don't know how to spell his name because I have only seen it in the paper once)....his problem is he always "thinks" we are one deal away from a title, when in reality everytime he makes a deal, we are one trade farther away from the title. Oh, I almost forgot Garnett, okay he made one great move.... would you still have your job if you made one great decision in 10 years????

This is insane! What about Troy Hudson he was the next T Mac until he got hurt I suppose thats McHales fault also?

I suppose you guy's would like Larry Brown or Jerry West well I'll tell you they ain't walking through Target Center anytime soon.

McHale it is!!!! he'll probably repeat next year then we will know for sure.

Troy Hudson the next T Mac? They are different position players, heights, athleticisms, etc. No way. But Pier, I'll give you this: After the wolves went to the Western Conference Finals and they knew Cassell was banged up (and Troy was supposed to be healthy for the full year), we needed a back up point and there wasn't much on the market. I'll admit I would have resigned him too. Same with all the players he resigned that summer. But eventually we found out it didn't work. If my decisions weren't working out for my employer, I think they would have gone in a new direction by now. It's been ten years. There are plenty of other people who would take a GM role.

Back to the Forbes thing-Billy King was ranked the third best GM. Ha ha ha. There's a guy who ruined a franchise, and he actually got his team to the finals one year.

I will admit the Rap Album T Hud sprung on us in mid season may have hurt his development and the teams.... grin.gif

Pierbridge,

Is Mchale your neighbor, friend, or a family member of some sort? I dont understand how your sopport of him can be so great when the only real thing he did was draft Garnett. Troy Hudson the next T-Mac come on. He is average at best.

Kevin Mchale needs to step down and bring on Fred.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.
    • Jim Almquist
      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
