  • The view from a seat at the Final Four in New Orleans that’s selling for around $1,500 leaves plenty to be desired
  • Fans are apparently still willing to shell out some major cash just to be in the building

Most stadiums and arenas that are regularly home to sporting events are designed to ensure most spectators are provided with an at least somewhat decent view of the action, but sadly, that isn’t always the case.

For example, part of the reason the New York Islanders stopped playing games at Barclay Center is that a solid chunk of fans were unable to see a solid chunk of the ice due to sightline issues that were somehow never taken into consideration during its construction. There’s also Fenway Park, which features dozens of poles with the potential to block your view of the action unfolding inside the baseball mecca.

You normally don’t have to worry about those issues if you attend a game at the Superdome in New Orleans, as even fans sitting in the nosebleeds have a pretty solid perspective of the playing surface. Of course, the vast majority of the showdowns there are played between football teams as opposed to the quartet of college basketball programs who will compete in the Final Four this weekend—and it appears some fans are in for a fair amount of disappointment.

As of this writing, you’ll have to shell out a minimum of $275 for a ticket that will allow you to watch the final three contests of the NCAA Tournament within the confine of the Superdome. The view may leave a bit to be desired, but I have a hard time believing it will be much worse than what some UNC fans will be treated to in a block of seats in the lower level where the price of admission is closer to $1,500.

That’s going to be a no for me, dawg.
