      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 .

NBA Draft Lottery

Recommended Posts

maros91

I see the Wolves didn't get lucky again. Pick #7. I seen on ESPN last night had some dude has them taking the Horford kid from Florida. I think maybe we should move up a couple spots and take Conley Jr. from Ohio St. Although, Conley said he wants to keep playing with Oden. I don't know if the Blazers can make that happen. What do you think the Wolves would have to give up to move up to the #3-#5 spots? Do you think our #7 and Ricky Davis is enough? How about Kevin Garnett to the Sonics for their #2, a future first, and Ray Allen or Rashard Lewis? Then we would take Durant. I think next year when we are in the lottery we should send Felton Spencer to represent the Wolves. What do you guys think the wolves should do with their pick and offseason moves?

I'll assume you are joking. The Sonics entire front office staff would be fired if they made that deal.

Not joking. I am sick of seeing the wolves getting ripped off in trades. It is time to rip someone else off. KG has 1-2 great years left, Allen is on the downside. I don't know. I just want to see the wolves actually make a good deal. Wally trade was terrible, Marko trade was terrible. Maybe we should give the #7 to the clip joint and get that deal over with? We have so many bad contracts on this team I don't know where to start. We fired a coach that had a terrible roster and had a .500 record with it. Wittman is 20-25 games below and we keep him around. The only thing we have for us is KG and I think it is time to part ways.

I'm a huge KG fan but I am all for trading him if they can make a smart trade. But that's a huge if with the people running the Wolves. I don't think it makes much sense to trade up in the draft unless you can land the number 1 or 2 (not going to happen). The talent level between 3 and 7 is pretty much a wash. Any player that could go at 3 could potentially fall to 7.

On the mock drafts I've seen, they have Conley going as high as 3 or as low as 11. Corey Brewer as high as 4 or as low as 12. Brandan Wright, right now, is the most popular number 3 pick. But some have him falling as far as the Wolves at number 7. The point is, it's a total guessing game after the top 2 picks and I wouldn't trade up to any of the spots after that unless you have to give up basically nothing to get there.

I woldn't mind seeing Conley in a Wolves uniform. A backcourt of him and Foye would be pretty hard to stop. But they're already guard heavy. And unless they dump some of them for some serious upgrades elsewhere, that one wouldn't make much sense. Guys like Horford, Wright, Jianlian or Brewer get my vote with their current roster. But let's hope they make some moves to alter their roster in more ways than just the draft.

I am all for making a good trade or even ripping some one off but that means another team has to be as stupid as the timberwolves and I don't think thats possible. No one in their right mind would take the trade you mentioned.

Basically this is how it breaks down the way you wrote it...

Sonics get:

Kevin Garnett-maybe 2 good years left

Wolves get:

-#2 pick-Durant who is expected to be the nex KG

-a future first round pick

-Ray Alen- who has more years left then KG

You want the Sonics to give you all that for 2 years worth of KG?

You couldn't even make a straight up trade KG for the 2nd pick, Durant is expected to be a super star so why give him up for KG who will be gone in a few years? Durant will be alot cheaper for a few years also.

Does everyone feel that garnett only has a couple years left, because I don't. Garnett in my opinion will never be as good as the year before it but he will still be an all-star player in the next five years.

As for trading up in the draft I also think that is a bad decision because with mcchale it will just make the timberwolves worse.

I think we are heading in the right direction right now with our young players like Foye, Smith, Mccants, and our future 7th draft pick.

Lets see a show of hands of who trusts Mchale to make a decent trade?

You can't see me but my hands are firmly placed in my pockets right now.

* Never trust McHale when drafting

*Mike Conley will be off the board to Atlanta #3. They have passed on a serious need, point guard, for three consecutive years (Rondo, Chris Paul, and Darren Williams have all been taken and Paul and Williams look like annual allstars at this point in their careers).

*I would love to see Horford but there is some talk of getting a Wright (Either Brandon or Julian). There is also discussion of Yi falling to us or Corey Brewer. This is a pretty deep draft but only McHale could screw it up.

KG has 1-2 GREAT years left. I think 22-12-4.5 are great numbers for a guy that is 7'0. Only a handful of guys average a double-double. He will be an all-star the next several years. After the next couple of years his numbers will start to fade but will still average a double-double. That is why we should deal him now to get the most for him. My hands are also deep in my pockets. Mchale needs to get rid of some of the bad contracts.(Marko,Hassell,Blount,Davis,Hudson)

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
