The guard railings in the first row of the 500 level were a huge obstacle when trying to actually watch the game on the field instead of just the scoreboard. I was on the aisle in Seat 1 and had the highest portion of the guard rail right in my line of sight, but it does get shorter in the seats toward the middle so I would have been better off sitting further in.
When you sit back, you can see maybe 60% of the field without looking between the bars, and the only way to remedy the obstruction is to lean way forward which got to be very uncomfortable after a long period of time. The legroom also felt much more limited in Row 1 as the concrete juts out toward you from the front wall, limiting the amount of space you have to put your feet.
Avoid if... you want to watch the game, you consider yourself "Big" and "Tall"
