"The way we characterize “obstructed” is if you have an obstruction, something in front of you — a beam, a pillar, something that’s blocking your view."
Once again we aren't complaining about "geometry" or not being able to see the left fielder (because why would you expect to see all the defensive players from your seat).
Peter sent this in. It is from Section 512, Row 5, Seat 4.
I am no expert in obstructed views. Is a railing a "beam" or "pillar?" It does seem to be something obstructing your view.
Come on Dave, just admit there's some obstructed views at Citi Field and we can stop. You're having a good off-season admitting some mistakes were made in 2009, why not clear this one out to so we can focus on whining about the black uniforms. It's all about being honest with the fans, and in the spirit of honesty - your quote bugs the spit out of me.
