I know the lower level is filled with the most wine and cheesers, but I always wondered what it was like to set in the front row. Im thinking i might do it once with the kids just to say we did it. The question i have is this, if you get row 1 is that front row? I know up in the 500 section it does not start with row 1. I cant remember what it starts with, does anyone know what they call the front on both the upper and lower level?

Sitting down low is pretty awesome. Only negative is there does seem to be a high percentage of folks down there who get irked if you stand.....even at times where most stadiums would deem it appropriate. I like to stand when we get I to the redzone for example....and have to deal with old grumps who want to sit until the team scores.

Not sure. I'm in row 12. Never paid much attention to lower numbers. I do know the one time I sat in the front row ( I think it was row AA), i thought Peppers was gonna kill me. It was the Bills game and we were playing like poo and I yelled something at Pepp as they were entering the tunnel at halftime That is one freakishly big dude who was not happy with me.

Other than in the endzone, the front row SUCKS.

You are right behind the bench and the angle to the field is too shallow. You miss about 75% of the game. You spend most of your time staring up ant the screens to see what is happening.

I had a friend who was older and consistently got 8th row tix on about the 40 behind the panthers bench (rt end facing back of bench). I could not see sh-t down there. I thought it was great until the game started.

Just my opinion. I went with him about 7 times and took wifey at least twice and we prefer club level or upper deck by far.

I sat 10th row behind the bench last season for the Titans game...great seats and I loved it, but the game, not so much

Pretty much this. A cousin of mine has PSLs on the lower level, row 2 at midfield behind the Panthers bench. I liked beind so close to the team during a game, but you can hardly see anything on the field and do have to rely on our "jumbo" trons a lot. Then again, if I'm at least in the building, I find it hard to complain.

I can see how it would be tough to see the game clearly between the 30's on the front row. Tons of players, coaches, and idiot photographers standing aroun. I think maybe half way up the lower level would be ideal viewing.

Yes, my tickets last year were on row 16 in section 128 and if it was mid-field it would have been pretty much perfect (save for those coveted club seats, of course). This year we're in the same section on row 8 so it's a little tougher to see all the action but still great seats.

Front row yes, down low though is pretty awesome if you have never done it. I agree with too low not being good based on seats.. I had some 2nd row 45 yard line tickets for a Sunday night game ( I think) years ago .....and the camera guy on a lift blocked much of the action. Big disappointment.

One interesting thing about lower level seats (specifically the front row) is all the drunken idiots wander down there from the 500's at the end of the game. I once saw some guy who was completely wasted spill beer on/yell at Muhsin Muhammad's wife (their kids were there, too). It was quite a scene as one valiant fan (not security, mind you) grabbed the dude by his shirt from behind, said very calmly in his ear "take a fuging walk" and escorted him forcefully all the way up to security at the top of the section. Applause followed. Wonder if Moose gave that guy free tickets or something.

I have sat everywhere but club it seems. I love my current seats, Im in 127 row 7 (actually the 8th row). My section spans from the middle of the endzone to about the 5 yard line on the panthers sideline.

I love my seats, especially when inside of the 30 on my side...being that close to the action is awesome. I'm elevated just enough to see whats going for the most part. Gets tough to see everything when their at the other endzone.So when the action is at the other endzone I watch the pre-snap action on the field and then glance up at the jumbortron to follow the ball. Works out great.

The upper deck gives you the ultimate vantage point but the distance is too much for my eyes and have damn good vison(no contacts or glasses)

I have sat halfway up at the 50 yard line as well a few times thanks to my balling uncles psls. Those seats are awesome being right behind the bench and all but on scoring plays your straining to see whats going.

Bottom line is you go for the atmosphere and as long as you know that going in to it, you'll have a blast...except for when Mare misses a game tying/winning field goal after an incredible 4th and 15 strike to Lafell for 44 yards(minnesota game).

I'd imagine club is the best of both worlds, being close to field and high enough to see plays develop. I have never spent the money on them cuz I like to stand and get loud on 3rd down(on defense of course). Most peeps there only advocate that kind of stuff when doing the wave.

well i just want to know what the actual row is, so if i ever see front row end zone seats, i will know they are real front row. I think its stupid that stadiums dont mark the front row row1, its misleading. You cant even find a seating chart that clearly says what is what.. Ive sat down in the 200 section before, it was a nice view but the people asking me to sit got on my nerves. I dont plan on sitting down there any again unless it something drastic like row 1 to show my kids.
