    I have tickets in Section F36, Row 5. I know it says that seats in Row 1-8 down on the Field level are considered obstructed views because of how close they are to the field and that you can't see over players and sideline personnel. In all reality, how bad is it? Am I really going to be struggling to see what is going on in the game?

    Those are great loud tickets, but u will have to stand the whole game and will be confused as to what is going on due to bad angle, players blocking view. I've owned whole section like those and enjoyed them. Especially if they are on the Chargers home side :)

    I'm not a fan of those tickets, but then again I'm not a big fan of field in general. I just don't get the perspective on the game that I get from lower view. However, for one game a season I do like to mix it up and being that close to the action is fun. Everyone has a different opinion and for one game I'm sure you'll be fine, just wouldn't buy season tickets there.

    Which game are you going to?

    Welcome.

    Just don't do it with any kind of hangover. Besides that, should be ok. Bonus:cheerleaders practically in your lap.

    You'll pretty much be watching the jumbo tron the whole game.. I did it a couple years ago and would never do it again. Mind you, I am weird because I prefer Loge, lower view to MOST plaza... The upper rows of plaza are good, but I like to be up higher so I can really see the field and plays developing.

    Like most Field level tickets, you'll be standing a majority of the game..

    Loge is best if you could get sideline tickets without paying club pricing, but since I can't, I love me some lower view (home side in the shade).

    I was in the West endzone for 9 years, loved my seats. I hate sideline seats because you can't see the holes in the line opening, while you can from the end zone

    I like my lower field 38 seats in row 8, don't mind standing, and I am close enough to the bench that I can hear the coaches cussing out players. It's where all of the crazies and rabid Chargers fans can be found, including myself.

    I'm in F39, Row 14. Great seats, I can see over the sidelines fine, yet I;m so close to the players and the sidelines that they can hear everything I say to them haha!

    I guess it's all up to what you like in the gameday experience.

    I sat first row in Phoenix last weekend, and it reminded me how much I dislike those seats. Awesome when stuff is happening on your end, terrible when it's happening on the other side. Most of the time I can't tell how many yards were gained on a play, have to watch the Jumbotron too much of the game. But if you are about being close to the sights and sounds of the sideline, you will be happy. I echo the sentiments of those statements above about preferring the end zone view and being up a bit. I have Lower View, first row in the end zone and they are awesome. That being said, I would LOVE to have end zone in the Press Level, but nobody ever gives up those seats.

    I think you'll have a difficult time seeing over the heads of the players and coaches. So the view of the game will suck. Now, if you are in those obstructed view seats around the 10 yard line, you'll have an excellent view of the Charger Girls, but Section 36 the view might be pretty bad for everything.

    I also have a pair of seats in F39, row 14, and one of our guys from Bolt Bunker bought the seats from me for the regular season. I can see over the heads of the players, and have called out to a few of them back in the day. I've gotten nods from guys like Eric Parker and Donnie Edwards, and the defensive line guys have acknowledged my comments from where I am at.

    I have View 22 and I love those seats. I used to sit in Field 38 row 20. Field level knows how to party but when the action was at the other end, it was Jumbotron time.

    Actually, those were derwin's seats. He's in plaza 25.

    I won't be going tomorrow either. 7pm is a late start time to make. Want the tickets?
