    Yep, I find the balcony are people who paid for the seats themselves, not corporate. Not that corporate folks can't get into it, but it's moreso in the balcony, imo. I never minded sitting in the balcony, I'm just happy to be in my version of basketball Mecca. Now I'll sit courtside if anyone is offering.

    Some of the groups of rowdy kids are there with free tickets, it's a really big deal for them to get to go, I'm excited for them. I understand if they get a little distracted by it all.

    As for parents not watching there kids, well thats everywhere, so nothing special there, really.

    Listen if it's such a big deal, go sit in the restaraunt bar. It's just not cool to say the folks in the balcony are riff raff because it's not true. I'll sit with the "riff raff" any day of the week, thats my people!
    Hey if you want to identify with people in the Balcony who make going to games an unpleasant experience, then more power to you....just don't be offended if I dont' want to sit up there with you. I'll take my Row 2 in the Balcony and enjoy the game thoroughly .

    What is not true, and frankly sort of offensive, is suggesting that people in balcony are riff raff because of the price of the tickets, when in reality people are rude and inconsiderate all over the arena. I've had season tickets in the club level, and about 6 rows up at half court. People were jerks and annoying around their too. It has nothing to do with money or financial means.
    I'm not sure if anyone really brought financial means into this? I certainly didn't.

    Referencing nose bleed seats while calling yourself a ticket snob and calling people who sit only above a certain row with a certain price point riff raff doesn't bring financial means into it? Ok....

    The best seat in the house is the recliner in front of my TV. It's just the right price too. I'd love to go to the game though, if I stumbled into some free tickets. That's just me, hope it doesn't offend anyone. I can't wait for the season to start.

    UM OKAY. Regular price Balcony tickets are $20 face value. The tickets I bought for my package which are row 2 are $25 face value. A little perspective for ya there.

    I said ticket snob because I won't take free tickets that are in that $20 face value range because I've had too many bad experiences sitting up there with people who are Riff Raff. I did not call everyone who sit above me Riff Raff. Nor did I say that anyone above row 3 are Riff Raff, I just said that I've always have a negative experience sitting up there in the nose bleed sections due to the Riff Raff, which I went on to define in a later post. So I didn't say anything about anyone's economic standing. I'm basing everything on my experience at the game.

    Now if you want to go further and say that there is Riff Raff in every section of the fieldhouse that is fine, however my tolerance for Riff Raff varies section to section. If I'm in club level I can tolerate some Riff Raff, because I'm closer to the action. I have servers who can get me a refill on my drink, bring me food, Etc... If I'm sitting in the lower bowl and i'm around some riff raff, I can tolerate it even more because i'm even closer to the action and I can often just drown out the negative distractions by cheering louder.

    So I've found that by buying tickets that are $5 more, I don't have to deal with the Riff Raff and I can go to as many games as I please. Which means its so awesome sitting in row 2; that even free seats can not tempt me to sit up there with the riff raff and their pests for offspring. OH YEAH!

    Now with all that said, I am really envious of all you who get to go to the game tonight, and I wish you all the fun in the world at a preseson game. I wish I could muster up the tolerance to attend with my free tickets.....but the riff raff to seat section ratio just doesn't make sense for me tonight.

    I'll be watching though! Riff Raff free television!

    Anybody in the ORL area know if this game is going to be televised? Its blacked out on NBALP like all Magic games are, but I didn't find it on the local broadcast either.

    According to the Magic website, you're out of luck tonight; no local broadcast in ORL.

    Other parts of Florida might be luckier. The online TV guide for my area lists it on comcast channel 751. However, going to channel 751 it doesn't show anything but a blank screen, no schedule or anything, just a black screen.

    Well I guess I'm rif raf as well.

    I put my feet on the back of seats, if no one is sitting there. I have knee problems and the space inbetween the rows aren't designed for someone of above average height and even above average leg length for their above average height. I literally would hobble out of the arena if I had to sit with my feet placed under my seat, because my knees would swell up to the size of grapefruits.

    If there are people directly in front of me, and there are empty seats a down the row, I'll move.

    And that's just me. My dad is way bigger than I am. His knees are in the back of the person in front of him, because that's just how big he is. He can fit just fine in the seats, but the amount of space intbetween rows doesn't match up with his 6'6" frame. Same for my uncle.

    Sometimes people are rif raf, or ********, because merely of their size, not because they aren't considerate.

    I sometimes get tix from work that are 12th row behind the Pacer's bench, and I can tell you that the "riff raff" are quite prevalent there as well. There is always going to be one *hole in every 20-30 people anywhere. But almost everytime I have gone to a game there was some drunkard relatively close behind me yelling real loud and spilling beer everywhere.

    I got a kick out the fact you can be a ticket snob and still be sitting in the balcony. Good stuff.

    He doesn't enjoy it up there either. Snow, rain, clouds, wind, and otherwise incessant sunshine, fresh air, and the occasional mountain goat going "baaaaaaah" would all be too disruptive to the serenity...

    Well did you not just try to take a shot at me with the empty seats comment, geez I didnt know it had to be explained that Riff Raff put there feet up on a seat back with your know.... a person sitting in it.

    I mean really, why did that even have to be said. I must be Riff Raff cause put my feet on the EMPTY seats cause I'm big boned...weak sauce!

    Oh and the view up on my mountain here is Spectacular, guess you wouldn't know as it casts a shadow over your mole hill.
