Staying out of a conversation that can only lead to personal injury to me, does anyone know where the best place to view the jumbotron is there? So at least replays can be seen?

Glad I have a co-op next semester to pay for my flights and ticket to the game! Can't wait! Hoping some of the red tickets will still be available when I have my purchase window!

You'd be pissed if you didn't go. But would you be pissed if you had to stand?

It wouldn't really bother me. Not like I've never stood for 3 hrs before. It would suck if I was standing behind sasquatch and couldn't see though.

If nosebleed is my only option so be it. I can record the game. I'm not sure I'll see another game like this in my lifetime. Though that logic may justify me dishing out the cash for better seats. I do have enough saved up.

The one that would be showing the game/highlights is out in left field

And that photo looks to be taken from the $249 seats. Is that a base runner standing near center ice? Ouch.

I agree. I have gone over nearly every view in the place and prices. I am still wondering what the heck I am going to do. Doesn't seem like any view is all that great to be honest.
I really wish they would have just built a large grand stand with seats right near the rink. It makes way more sense to have had all the seats in a grand stand that was built in the outfield then the seats hundreds of feet away and low. just my opinion though.

Also, any other fellow season ticket holders know what days they are able to get presale tickets?
I am wednesday.

Haven't heard anything from the queens for us non season ticket holders. So much for signing up for updates.

That view is exactly why I don't get the hoopla about the outdoor games. You are so far away.

It's also exactly why the NHL loves them. Look at that pricing chart, I'm sure the average ticket price is significantly above the normal ticket price of Staples or Ponda. And you get to sell thousands more tickets than normal. Dodger Stadium seats 53,000 for baseball. Just say they only use 40k seats for the outdoor game (previous Winter Classics have generally sold more tickets than the home stadium/sport capacity), then they have more than doubled the # of tickets sold.

It will be interesting to see how many seats they sell. The prices will absolutely keep a lot of people away. Original 6 teams whose fans grew up playing the game outdoors in winter have a much bigger attraction than sun belt teams whose fans cannot share a similar experience, especially since the game is not being played in cold winter weather.

This is not meant as a criticism of those who want to attend and enjoy it for the ambiance and what it is, just wondering how many fans it will actually attract at those prices.

It would have been so much better to orientate the rink along the home plate-mound-second base axis and build temporary seats in the outfield to bring the fans closer.

I think I'll pass on this game. Driving to Dodger Stadium to watch a game with binoculars in 50-60 deg weather and spending $800+ on four seats doesn't sound like fun for me. I hope the seat allocation process is fair to Ducks fans who want to go.

They wouldn't be able to fill over 90k seats. Seats would probably be even further away.

They're saving the big one for Detroit-Toronto, which they are hoping will break outdoor hockey attendance records.

I think the sightlines would be better at the Rose Bowl. You're not that far away from the field, either.

I still think that's too big. It seems to me an intermediate choice would be the StubHub (Home Depot) Center. I wonder if that was considered too small? They could have put in field seats or something.
