I am sorry, but I fail to see why anybody's enjoyment of a game
would be diminished by the presence of a monument.

Why would that be selfish,  and why would such monuments reduce
the enjoyment of 'the masses', if there is such thing in a mud?

Yes - at last - You. I Choose you. Out of all the world,
out of all the seeking, I have found you, young sister of
my heart! You are mine and I am yours - and never again
will there be loneliness ...
