Dak Prescott praises Cowboys fans for throwing trash at referees

It’s a tough day to be a Cowboys fan, having watched a supposedly high-powered offense fold into itself. Dallas was incredibly disjointed, committing 14 penalties for 89 yards, failing in creative and embarrassing ways.

That was punctuated by the final play, when Dallas failed to get off a spike after a designed quarterback draw over the middle of the field.

Cowboys fans took out their displeasure on their team and the referees — discernibly for the bungled end-of-game snap situation — by launching trash onto the field, aiming for referees, per Jane Slater of NFL Network

After the game, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was asked about the incident.

Initially, Prescott launched into a heartfelt spiel about how sad that behavior was and all the work that goes into being an NFL player.

“I understand fans and the word fan, for fanatic, I get that,” Prescott said. “But to know everything that we put into this day in and day out, try our hardest. Nobody comes into the game wanting or expecting to lose and for people to react that way when you’re supposed a supporter and be with us through thick and thin, that’s tough.”

Then, Prescott was informed fans were throwing the trash at the referees.

“Well, credit to them then,” Prescott said. “Credit, credit to them.”
