    View from End zone?

    I am considering buying tickets to a couple of games from a friend that are in section DD. Has anyone sat here before? How is the view? They are in row 2, and I am a little concerned about it being too low to see the field very well. Anyone have experience here, or any of the other sections in the end zone? Thanks!

    The view is great to watch plays to developed with the passing game or lanes opening in the running game when they are heading toward you.

    It is impossible to determine how many yards were gained/lost. The other big problem is the only video board is behind you.

    Hmm, the problem with seeing the number of yards is what I was afraid of. I might pass those up. Appreciate the insight.

    I sit in Section DD three rows from the top. The view isn't to bad in my opinion, ya you cant tell how many yards gained the majority of the time but for the price I pay its okay with me.

    This alone should be enough reason not to buy tickets in that section. Cycrazy is there.

    Re: View from End zone?

    All the things mentioned above is true, but when the ball is around the south endzone you're right on top of the field and it's awesome...I wouldn't hesitate to sit there, but the concessions are a long haul.

    Re: View from End zone?

    I'd bet stitting up high in the endzone isnt bad. ive sat in a very low row and it wasnt all that great. Of course that particular game, both teams spent the entire game at the other end of the field.

    Re: View from End zone?

    If you're as low as Row 2, it isn't a good view. Trust me I've had views from that height and angle for about 6 years. The views higher up on the South Endzone aren't bad though. I'd say you want to be at about row 10 or higher.

    Re: View from End zone?

    I have bought tickets in the south enzone before. Video board behind me was not a big deal. Gave me a reason to stand up and bend, so I was not stiff after the game. The seats have backrests, which was a plus. I never sat that low, and that may be a problem. Other thing, is I always wear earplugs, because CyCrazy is there, or was it because of the speakers on the scoreboard. hmmm. It can be loud in the endzone.

    Endzone seats aren't great but aren't bad either.

    I sit there at the top, row 29...the best thing I like about it: close enough to go to the car for beers at halftime (i always park in the lot on the south side of the stadium), and secondly you can stand up at the top and shoot the breeze with other folks kind of a small town high school game atmosphere pretty cool...

    Re: View from End zone?

    I do like the atmosphere. I have talked with many fans sitting there. My wife loves to sit in the end zone, but we never sit that low, and she does not want to sit in the center. She has a fear of being hit by a field goal or extra point. My daughter broke her nose by walking near some football players in a park, who were kicking the ball. The yelled heads up, my daughter looked up, and that was the second time she broke her nose in her teen years.

    Re: View from End zone?

    I've had season tickets in Section CC Row 8 since 2006 and we love our seats. We were a young family at the time and when they opened it up at $99 a seat we couldn't refuse. I've caught a field goal every year and it is fun to try and catch them during the pre-game and halftime practices. The bathrooms are close if you are ok with porta-potties. I've gotten a lot better at judging the yardage on the band end of the field but when it is that far down you can just turn around and watch the big screen.
