Maybe someone can help me out. I had purchased tickets through the lottery for every Frozen Four from 1998 in Boston through 2004 in Boston, including Anaheim, Providence, Albany, St. Paul, Buffalo and the two in Boston. That was when it was all done (or at least could be done) with paper and regular old US Mail. I still have same address, same info, but how would I go about making sure I get that priority if I again started going into the lottery? Maybe I'm SOL, but any help would be appreciated.

Priority: 13 (Highest)

Seat location: RS5, Row 3, paid $189.

Down low in the corner...which means I'll miss anything on the far end of the ice due to glass distortion. :mad:

Then again, at least I'm not looking halfway across Michigan to see the replay screen on the other end of the field...

nope...you will be looking almost directly straight up, like being in the front row at the movies.

For what it's worth, the Ford Field guy called me back promptly and was nice and polite. He said he hoped we enjoyed the event and when I thanked him but expressed my skepticism that hockey in a football stadium was going to work out that well for a championship, he asked where my seats were and said he's seen them setting up and thinks I will be pleasantly surprised with the view from Row 13. He thought that was a pretty good distance up without being too far away and I'd have a good view of the ice. I'm still a little concerned about the angle, especially since I don't think we're looking straight on from the end of the ice, but I hope the guy is right.Good view, or no good view? That is THE question. Especially this year.

Everyone: After you get home from Detroit, please take a moment to comment on your sightline. Rate the quality of your vantage point. Given its position on the seating chart, was your view better than expected? Worse than expected? And so on. Thanks in advance for your post.

I'll give everyone a few days to comment before posting my Summary.

Travel safe, and have a great time in Detroit. I hope to see some of you at the tournament!

Thumbs down! Worst seats I've ever had at a Frozen Four and I'm 20 rows off the ice and I've had some pretty bad seats. I could only see half the ice. I'm just disgusted.

That really sucks. I'm sorry to hear this...what section are your seats in?

Rs02

everyone in the risers is complaining. That is just terrible. The explanation someone gave me was that if the risers were put more steep, and therefore higher...the people down low on the other side would not be able to see the jumbotron at the East end of the stadium. That is just terrible planning.

If that was the reason the stands could have at least been as high as the curtain... cause nobody is seeming through that :p. It could go up 20 feet.

I was a level 1(buffalo only win ). I bought cheap seat option and am in the 2nd row in the north side club seats. Not an issue at all with my view

It's a great view from the TV at the hotel restaurant. I could have stayed home.

I'm in RS2 row 11 - I'm a priority13 (highest) the absolute Worst seats I've ever had & I've been going sine '93. This makes cincinnati look like the bomb! Not to mention the box office was selling tix for today at $10! I'm writing the ncaa when I get back.

priorty 12--RS 1 row 7 moved before game started
who allocates seat locations for NCAA

father in law 13 highest priority RS section 5 row 6 also moved'

son in law priority 6 241 row B best seat in horrid venue

The NCAA owes everyone below row 20 and apology and GUARANTEE that their seats will be best in the future

When BU=BC met at Fenway the seats were priced to reflect the view for hockey- higher up was more expensive

Spoke to woman at St Paul table and she commented how many people were unhappy

RS1 Row 14, were the worst seats I have ever had for a hockey game, never mind they cost $189. We ended up moving behind the net, which were much better and you could actually hear the game. Sitting in row 14 section RS1, you could not hear anything that was going on.

RS37, Row8, highest priority. Worst seats ever. Had a sightline to each goal only, could see nothing else. Had to look at least 90 degrees to either side to see scoreboard. Absolutely feel punked by NC$$ and whoever else dreamed up this idea.
Left after first period.

I feel like I hit the jackpot. Priority 3, $119 tickets. The only reason I bought tickets through the lottery this year was to improve my number for next year in St. Paul.

My seats are in section 234, row 1. Those are probably the best seats in the building. I said today that sitting low would be the worst, and the higher the seats, the better the view. But I prefer sitting a little bit higher for games, anyway. If you're upset with your seats, I suggest moving to the second level and finding some empty seats. Oh yeah, and they're cushioned chairs, which makes for a much more comfortable game. Although the leg room left a little to be desired, but with everything else considered, I wouldn't change my seats for anything on Saturday.

Bought tickets through the lottery despite having zero priority. (didn't realize how easy they would be to get).

Section 134, row 15. Much better view of the ice than I expected. Actually ok seats for watching hockey. Boring atmosphere, but ok sightline.

I feel awful for all of you that were/are in the risers.
