The Crew keeps Navin Field clean and pristine—so much so, the Democrats and the AFL-CIO thought it'd be the perfect place to give their speeches in support of workers. And then they left nothing but trash behind. Is that what they think of the corner that has been kept by the NFGC and volunteers and the public—families and children who play on the field daily?
"I think that they hold an event here and they don't clean up after themselves.We have people hold events here every Saturday and Sunday and they leave the Field in the condition they found it in. I mean, to see this mess here is just disheartening. Especially that it's a Labor Day Parade, and these are organizations have plenty of means, and they leave all these bottles and cans, and garbage on the Field, and we're supposed to clean it up for them?
With the ruts in the Field they left too, that's gonna be stuff we have to fix. I mean, come on you guys. You guys have all kinds of means. We're a bunch of volunteers, for God's sake, and we've got Labor organizations that have millions of dollars, and they're gonna leave it like this for the peasants to clean up. I think it's really wrong."
