Player knows what it feels like to have no support at home games

I am a Cedarcrest High School soccer player and I just found out that the petition for the new fields did not go through again. I am a junior and I have had to play on the fields at Tolt for the past three years.
   Actually, I take that back as most of our home games have been at Redmond High School because our old grass field is unplayable from the football season in the spring.
   I think, even though I will never get a chance to play on it, that the new fields should still be built because I know how it feels to have no support from your school at your home games because it takes a half an hour to get to your new "home field."
   Also I don't see why all of the rich people who live in Taylors Ridge or Cameron Park in the 200,000 or 300,000 dollar homes could not spare 20 measly dollars a year so that the sport players at Cedarcrest could have a nice home field.
   I mean if you can afford to live in a 300,000 dollar home then I would think that you could spare 20 dollars a year.
   Anyway, I was hoping that you could print this in your newspaper so that all of the cheap people can see what they're doing to the poor sports players at Cedarcrest.
