...for my first Steeler game IN Pittsburgh...EVAH.

So, are the seats in the hundys worth it?  I mean, the only thing available in the lowers is pushing $500 with a few for a little less, but those are pushed deep into the corners of the EZ.  That's purdy steep.

Prefer to be on the home side, but if you're sittin' anywhere that isn't in the UD, you're taking out a home equity for a coupla seats.  How are those UDs between the 30s?  Endzone better?  Never sat there for a game.  I'd imagine that you could really see plays develop from that perspective.

Thoughts?

I love the endzone seats, but it does limit your view when play is going the other way. 

IMO not a bad seat in the house.

Honestly, I enjoy sitting between the 20s in the nosebleed section--the only ones I've ever been able to afford.  It's a rowdy crowd up top, and you're high enough to get a really cool view of the game.

Just my .02.

Just do it.  All the seats are great. 

FYI, for the winter classic, new bleacher seats were added to the "open" endzone.  Last saturday they were used (although remarkably an attendance record was not set?) and word is, they will be made permanent next season.  Around 3,000 additional seats.

agreed, I've trekked it there about 5 times and been down low EZ, nosebleeds, in the middle, on the 50, standing on the sprially things smoking and drinking a beer.  It's all "home side" and like Penso said, really not a bad seat in the house.  JUST DO IT!

Damnit, not looking good ATM for several reasons.

Looks like I'll have to enjoy the whoopin' they hand out from my couch.

I've been in the Club level, around the 40s, the end zone - lower level and for the Ravens playoff game in 508, row BB.
Never had a bad seat.  The atmosphere is just amazing.

If you can swing it, just go.  You won't regret spending the money.  At least not immediately.
 Cool

And if you go, I have a tailgate hookup for you.  They know Otis too.  Awesome group.

JUST DO IT!!
