      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 .

Manager Ejections

Recommended Posts

maros91

Whats your favorite manager ejection? There have been some great ones from Billy Martin to Lou Pinella. I think my favorite will have to be Lloyd McClendon of the Pirates a couple years back after he got ejected he grabbed first base and walked out with it. Very funny.

Sweet Lou's "First base is my frisbie" episode is my favorite. Probaby because it was original.

The rest are just wannabees base flingers. smile.gif I understand there was a minor league manager that appeared to need committed to a mental hospital last season. I missed that one.

Billy Martin's dirt kicking renditions were also ahead of their time.

Know what I hate? A sissy boy manager like the Reds currently have. He doesn't have the guts to make his players play like they care, then pretends to be irate at umpires so he can get ejected and try to keep his job. It's phoney, and he isn't the only one that does it.

Bobby Cox got ousted twice during the weekend. Gardy has had some nice ones. I love it when the managers get fired up and start throwing their hands all over the place and the then the hat comes off. Your outta here!

I only got to one Twins game last year (I live 2 hours drive away) and I got to see both Francisco Liriano start and no shock here- a Gardy ejection. A few years ago, I was living in Kansas City, and went to a Twins-Royals game and a pre-season Vikes/Chiefs tilt all in the same afternoon. Long story short, it was over 100 that day, and in the first inning Royals catcher Mike DeFelice got tossed, went into the dugout, threw aroud 10 bats and every jug of Gatorade and water out of the dugout onto the field. I told my buddy I thought it was intentional because he probably didn't want to squat behind the plate all day in that heat. By far the best ejection, although not a manager, I have personally seen.

"I know years ago Earl Weaver was the guy to beat"

Mitty, I forgot about the Mad Munchkin. Here is a link to some funny Earl Weaver. Can't believe how long Umpire lets it go. Ump gets in some good shots a couple minutes in though. Hopefully this link will work.

The Double A manager pretty much went insane over the weekend. The army crawl and gernade throw was frickin funny and at the end he blows a kiss to the fans. Pretty funny.

As im a Pirates fan the McLendon ordeal when he took first base with him was great.

But that minor league one over the weekend where the coach army crawled to the rosin bag and threw it like a grinade at the ump was one of the best ever. Im sure it will be on you-tube soon...

      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters.

The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents.
