Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott apologizes for praising fans who tossed trash at refs after disappointing playoffs loss

News & Politics

Rayne Dakota Prescott, the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, apologized for his comments praising the team’s fans for throwing garbage at referees following their latest disappointing playoffs loss.

Prescott was excoriated by many commentators and others after he appeared to support his fans for expressing their displeasure at the referees on Sunday.

Many Cowboys fans, and apparently Prescott as well, blamed referees for the clock running out in the final moments of the game before the Cowboys had a chance to tie up the score against the San Francisco 49ers. Others blamed the play-calling that led to Prescott running the ball and the 14 seconds left on the clock.

“Credit to them, then, credit to them,” Prescott said of the fans after being informed of their behavior against the referees.

“The fans felt the same way as us. I guess that’s why the refs took off and got out of there so fast. I think everybody is upset with the way this thing played out,” he added according to a reporter for the Dallas Morning News.

By Tuesday, Prescott changed his tune via a tweet on his official social media account.

“I deeply regret the comments I made regarding the officials after the game on Sunday,” Prescott tweeted.

“I was caught up in the emotion of a disappointing loss and my words were uncalled for and unfair,” he added.

Ironically, Prescott had initially criticized the fans because he believed that they had been throwing trash at the team’s players before reporters corrected him.

Here’s some of the criticism against Prescott’s comments:
