If they're in a price range that's < $150 in the lower bowl, isn't it technically an upgrade?
Well, yeah, if you are talking about going to the $150 Row 1 center seats. But if you are looking to downgrade from $132 lower bowl seats to $125 Row 1 end seats or $90 Row 2 seats those would likely be considered downgrades, and perhaps not available via the online relocation system.
We are on the same page. I agree 100%. They never changed the pitch of MSG in the lower Bowl & put in bigger seats therefore no legroom. We had a guy next to us that was 6'6'' & sat with his knees to his chin!!!
The only thing that really sucks is you can only upgrade in price but I found great seats for $10 more. The first row in the 200's will move quickly to people in the lower bowl behind the net!!!
My wife is thrilled with the new digs. We won't have to watch most on the action on the center screen! No problem watching replays but if you didn't watch the big screen you missed some great saves by HANK!!!!
I am officially sitting diagonally across from you! Row 1 definitely comes at a premium, but I agree that the extra legroom, shelf for food drink, personal TV, and most of all better viewing angle makes them a far superior value to just about any seats in the lower bowl. Looking forward to November 1! (assuming there's hockey.)
After several years sitting in the middle of old section 308, I took the plunge for two seats in Row 1 of Section 225. Very excited about the front row / nobody blocking my view. Steep price increase, though.
