Thread: If You Have 1st Row Upper Level YOU HAVE A BIG PROBLEM...

  1. #1

    If You Have 1st Row Upper Level YOU HAVE A BIG PROBLEM...



    Imagine taking your pre-1977 senority (you coulda had any seat in the stadium) and you go upstairs to avoid a large PSL and you think it's ok because you have the first row. Well think again......Besides not being able to see the players numbers, can you imagine having to look out between these bars for three hours ?? It was nice of Woody to make it so you can at least see between the hash marks. It's going to be kinda funny looking up from below.....kinda like Rikers Island from the outside. WOW.

    Picture was taken from eye level sitting back in the seat, And it's all the way around the stadium not just these seats.

    That picture is an absolute distortion of the true view. I was there last week to see the Eagles and I went up to my seats which are in Row 17 of the upper level. I saw several people on the floor wearing jerseys and could clearly make out the numbers. BTW - I wear glasses for distance and I did not have them on. IMO PSL holders have a bigger problem - What if there is a work stoppage in 2011? You basically paid for a year of nothing.

    What about the view when you lean forward? Thats how I usually watch a game, not sitting all the way back in the seat.

    Maybe I need to upgrade to the iphone 4, but those bars are there.

    As far as the PSL's go you are correct. If you lose your job you are LEGALLY responsible to buy the tickets until the stadium gets torn down. I think you will be able to buy PSL's at half price next year from all the poor souls who can't pay or have to move or just realize that the economics of the stadium is out of wack. Most single game seats for sale in that stadium will only fetch face value and most definiltely will not recapture the pro rata price of the PSL.

    Incidently, if the seat prices go up (which you have to expect since Woody knocked over $50-100,000,000 off PSL prices) you have to stomach that too. They've got you by the balls. Sad but true. Leon must be rolling in his grave.

    Go Jets !!

    The bars are there but is it any different than the first row in the old stadium where you had to look thru scratched plexiglass?

    Those railings were put up during construction for safety reasons and will be taken down before the season starts.

    No - but that sucked. We've had multiple threads on here warning people to stay away from row 1 precisely on account of the dirty windshields.

    Row 3 seems like the perfect scenario in the Uppers. In the old stadium, anything below row 12 or so was also pretty damn good. I sat quite often in row 29 and the 15-20 row difference really made a difference. I'd sit up there with friends and they'd say "Ya know, this isn't so bad". But when we'd move down in the 2nd half and sit somewhere near row 8 it would feel 10x closer.

    I went to the practice and the stadium as a whole is ridiculously unimpressive. Zero personality. Zero nice touches. It is what it looks like, a big concrete bowl with aluminum siding.

    The seats are incredibly small, if anyone medium size sits next to you you will get to know them very well.

    Concourses are better, yay. More food options, yay, more opportunities to pay $4.75 for a bottle of soda (literally).

    A billion dollars and the rape of a fan base for this. It's just tragic.

    Pretty much what I expected.

    Alot of new stuff for casual(and soft) fans with nothing but higher prices and smaller seats for people who are actually there to watch the game.

    Cutting edge? In what, nachos?

    we've known for a while that the upper deck's view of the field wouldn't compare to the old stadium's upper deck view. They had to accomodate the luxury suites...

    the sad fact is that the US economic model no longer supports the average Joe's ability to attend games with decent seats. It's a lot similar to Rome's economic model, and we know how that one ended....

    If he is rolling, no one in the upper deck will be able to spot it, that's for sure.
