    a new stadium should have ZERO obstructed seats

    i agree with one of the comments: stub hub better flag those seats

    Well the design and engineering company that designed the Colts stadium will never get another job in the NFL thanks to tat crap. I have seen some design flaws in my line of work but nothing as horendous as this.

    The only thing you will be able to see from those seats is Peyton Manning's Sputink-esque head.

    OK, they say they will not be sold for football games...ok, then what other events will you sell them for? No view is no view, regardless of football games, concerts, or washers..
    And don't just blame the designer, team officials need to take the blame, they had to have agreed on the design, plus when the structure was going into place, you would think there would have been a walkthru to stop it and question that...

    This almost seems like a story that is too stupid to be true.

    Seriously, they really put seats there?! :um:

    After really looking at it, ya know, we have fans that probably would never even notice it since they are on the cell phones or just talking to one another the entire game...maybe those seats are for those type of people.

    See that's totally wasted space. They could have fit some really big speakers there and cranked up the noise even louder than before.

    Too stupid to be true..but seeing is believing. Hopefully this has some bad karma coming Indy's way. I'd be embarassed if I was a Colts fan.

    The article doesn't print the whole story of the seats
    there's more to it






















    each seat you purchase also come with

    The solution's simple, place a huge HDTV there.
