Took my two siblings to their first Raiders game earlier this season while they were playing the Steelers. My brother is a huge Steelers fan which I have yet to dissuade him from but it's a friendly rivalry. I have been coming to Raiders games at the Coliseum pretty frequently for the last 4 or 5 seasons. We had row 10 or 11 in section 122. Rows were pretty narrow with enough wiggle room to sneak past fans when we needed to exit and head to the restrooms (long waits). The endzone was just to our left. The walls above the field aren't too big either which made sitting down next to the field a better experience. This isn't a bad stadium, it's just old. And the Raiders on field woes have left the stands often half empty, thus killing the game day atmosphere. Those fans in the "Black Hole" are pretty intense but I think a lot of Raiders fans are skeptics these days. There also isn't much commercialization near the stadium; no bars, no restaurants, no hotels. The Warriors' arena is next door and there is a BART subway stop but that's about it. All of the closest hotels seem to be near the Airport which isn't far away.

To give you an idea what the view of the field is like from section 122, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a Raiders/Kansas City Chiefs game at O.co Coliseum.
