Went to my first Canes game last night - what's up with the small seats at PNC? Seriously, I am only 6'2" and not enough room for my legs....

I was in section 130 - are all the seats like that? If so, no more going to PNC for anything.....

Some of the seats, especially in the corners (like 130), do have really tight leg room. The worst are where two seats are actually angled towards each other (fortunately you can tell which these are online before purchasing tickets). There's a few specific rows in certain sections that are really good on legroom, and many seats (especially on the sideline) are just average (and by average, I mean coach class on American Airlines). Not comfortable but I can make due for 3 hours at 6'2".

The best legroom, overall, is in the 300 level. The rows are steeper and the seats in front of you only come up to ankles instead of knees. But it's a huge tradeoff on your view of the game...

Go to a Nascar race, you'll think the seats you had were incredible then.

it's a trend of most newer arenas and stadiums. More seats is more money. When you're 6'5 and have a relatively wide body it can be a bit tight.

Some rows and some sections are much worse than others. I'm 6-3" and some rows are almost painful to sit on. You have to just remember where the tight rows are and avoid them.

Section 130 is kind of a budget section in the lower level since it's a corner. They just renovated all of the seats and they are noticeably harder and more cramped in 130 than the section directly to the left.

Any row that has a wall or railing in front of it will usually be tight for legroom. The lower rows above the player entrances, or above the Olympia tunnel, etc are tight. I sat above the "Olympia" tunnel once, and had NO legroom.

Some rows, the seats are offset a bit, especially in corners. This can lead to cramped legroom as well. An aisle seat is also an easy solution, as you can take advantage of not having a seatback or someone else on at least one side of you.

I'm 5' 7", and noticed the same thing. That's why we'd rather go to DPAC for a concert. But if Aerosmith came to PNC, I'd still go.
