    Why would you ever build a stadium with obstructed view in today's world? Why?

    how exactly do two people sit in those two that are angled towards each other? does one person put their legs on the other one's lap?

    I remember seeing seats like that in old cartoons. Where the guy was sitting there and couldn't see anything going on. I didn't think they designed stadiums with seats there anymore.

    I'm guessing that there's no possible way that they can actually have someone sit in those seats, at least for the SB anyway.

    That's absolutely insane. You'd think with the addition of another 5-6k seats this week, that they'd have those roped off.

    I think there is no way that in a game like this there will be ANY seats open....even these.

    The very least the Colts brass can do is give the losers of these seats some souvenirs from thier favorite team,they would deserve it after shelling out a thousand or two for the weekend in miserable Hillbilly valley and then facing steel pillars for 3 hours :rolleyes:

    There has to be some rational explanation for this.

    I refuse to believe any reputable organization sell these.

    Right guys?

    I think it's weird that there are even seats that are in the foundation in front of those poles there.

    Unless they assume that the ticketholders of those seats will just stand up and shift over, but it's hard to imagine that there'd be much room there.

    OT: I don't think seats are being added, after last year's fiasco.

    considering Jerruh got people to pay to stand outside, the colts will have no problem filling those seats.

    Yes, seats are being added...from approx. 63k to about 68,500k

    The original plan was to add seats up to a little more than 70k, but you are right in saying that the plan was scrapped (in the higher amount) due to last yr's fiasco.

    They announced it yesterday or the day before...over 5,000 additional seats.

    They should put tv screens on the posts that match up to a view of the field from cameras on the other side of the posts.

    Wow, those seats are flat out unbelievable. I am in disbelief that these seats would exist in a new stadium.

    I mean, seriously, you could put a little concession stand right there or something. It doesn't have to be dead space, just don't put seats there that NO ONE will actually use.

    Given the performance of the Geldings this season, some fans might prefer to look at two poles versus that mess. But, I bet they have a great view of their participation banners. :rolleyes:

    In stadiums with obstructed view seats such as these the team only sells those tickets if all other seats are sold out, and they typically make it clear that they are obstructed view seats. The problem is that for an event like the Super Bowl most tickets are sold through the secondary market; who is to say that the seller will take the same steps to make it clear how bad those seats are?

    If they were going to put seats there they may as well have turned them with the backs to the field and let the people there watch on a monitor on the opposite wall, or better yet just sell them as SRO tickets.


    In regards to the additional seats being sold, is it really worth it considering the negative reaction when that was done last year in Dallas, and how much the NFL is already making from this game? I'm actually somewhat surprised they can even get away with adding 5,000 seats from the local fire or building inspector.

    So, they're adding some 3,000 seats for this game. Where are they going to be set up? Anyone know?
