Seat view from section 128 at Oakland Coliseum, home of the Oakland Raiders

Wouldn't call these the worst seats in the stadium. That honor goes to the seats atop Mt. Davis on the upper east side of the stadium. If you're an A's fan, you know this area as the area that's covered with the green tarp. View was terrible up there. Most seats in 128 will at least put you close to the field but sitting behind the uprights is a little bit of a buzzkill. The jumbo tron in the opposite end zone was also partially obstructed by the uprights which is bad because it's so small as it is. Maybe it could use an upgrade? Hmmm. Section 127 or 129 would give you similar seats with the same proximity to the action but with a better view than this one.
I hate games in September and sometimes in October when the dirt from the baseball field is still out on the football field. It looks tacky and unkept by halftime.
One area Raiders fans don't give this place a ton of credit in is the variety of food. The BBQ from Kinder's is amazing. If you're more in the mood for Tex-Mex, there is Rosa's Mexican Grill scattered throughout the stadium too. If you plan on tailgating, you should be able to get full there but I'll warn you that parking is $35 per spot. And there are no bars or restaurants outside of the Coliseum since it sits in a largely undeveloped part of Oakland. Many fans feel unsafe after night games but don't be. Way too many fans around for something dangerous to take place.

To give you an idea what the view of the field is like from section 128, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a Raiders/Seattle Seahawks game at O.co Coliseum.
