LOS Question - Nosebleeds

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I'm from NJ and will be attending my first Colts game at LOS in a little over a week for the MNF against the Eagles. When buying tickets I wasn't too picky on where I sat because I feel it's more about the atmosphere and the experience of getting to watch the Colts at home rather then on TV or at a local stadium. 

 

My question is how are the high sections in regards to ability to view the game, see the players, etc? 

 

I know some stadiums even the nosebleeds offer a great and clear view, some others are quite literally nosebleeds haha

 

My section is 613, row 15.

Thanks guys! Super pumped to get out there. Any suggestions on sights to see while I'm there? Also in regards to tailgating I saw that there is a place called Insurance touchdown town? Is that a decent spot? We wont be driving to the game so really won't have anywhere to set up camp per say. 

 

Also don't hate me, but I'm bringing an Eagles fan with me....

I am a nosebleeder and there is not a bad seat in the house. Its almost like you climb straight up and the field feels like it is right within reach.

What about the group of seats behind those pillars in the corner? haha xD

I stand corrected then, lol.

 

Lucas Oil Stadium should change the section assignment of that seat to something like 181 to give it the illusion of being close to the field. 

 

Any Colts fans would, of course, know that number 81 has been cursed ever since Hank Baskett wore it during the Super Bowl and choose to avoid that seat.

 

Then, scalpers swoop in and sell it to the opposing team for a ridiculous mark-up.  Who are they going to complain to?

The atmosphere alone is worth sitting in nosebleed....of course the closer you sit the better it gets, but nosebleed is also where you'll find a lot of the opposing teams fans, which really adds to the experience!!!!! The areas that have a somewhat restricted view will be noted on the tickets upon purchase, and they actually have TVs on the wall up there in case you can't see something on the field.

    • lol next you'll be wanting this guy 
    • I don't get why you are judging me. More hostility in this statement than anything I posted   To each their own I guess
    • The Colts are 4-2 against a cupcake schedule though, and have an extremely hard 2nd half schedule after the Lions game. I think everyone expected them to be at least 4-2 through the 6 games we had. Going after Rivers was a one-year win-now move. Ballard knew he was getting Buckner for the 13th overall pick, so Rivers was a one-year replacement, and Eason was probably one of several QBs that we'd keep on the roster for the future that we were interested in in the draft.    Let me ask you this. Rivers and Brissett are probably gone after this year. We'll have Eason, and probably draft a QB and sign one in FA. I don't know if we'll draft a QB early and start him year 1, or draft another QB in the mid-rounds and start a FA. However, unless we sign someone like Dak next year, do you see us competing with our QB situation? We'll either start a 1st or 2nd round rookie, Jacob Eason who may not get any playing time in his rookie year, or a FA that would just continue the process for a 3rd year in a row not getting our young QBs any playing time.   I want to go for it this year. Getting in the playoffs gives you a chance, but we need more than what we have right now most likely. Without Rivers, it sets us back another year because of reasons I mentioned above. We may have a "good team", and Ballard may "draft well", but without a franchise QB, we can't beat the Chiefs and Ravens. We'll probably struggle Vs the Titans, Steelers, and Bills. Remember, we lost to the Browns and barely beat the Bengals.   If we get a pick from 15-20, then it's going to be hard to trade up for a QB as well. That means we probably aren't getting Lawrence, Fields, and Lance. If we don't go for it with Rivers this year, we'll probably miss the playoffs next year until our QB gets better, and by then, we'll have to re-sign the 2018 draft class and be cash-strapped. We are in really bad shape unless we get a QB to produce IMMEDIATELY next year.
    • I probably will. However, every GM, Coach, or anyone associated with football should be judged based on their results, not "what looked like the right decision at the time." If that were true, Ballard would be chastisted for the 2018 draft and plenty other picks that looked like reaches. You have to give it a few years. Likewise, when Ballard makes a decision that is universally praised and it doesn't work out, you have to judge that by the result as well once you gain plenty of information. Good or bad, the end result is what you are judged on.
