Dak Prescott is now apologetic for what he said.
The Cowboys quarterback was asked about the rowdy fans, who rained litter onto the field at AT&T Stadium after the Cowboys fell to the 49ers, 23-17, during his postgame press conference. He started off blasting them until he found out the trash was for the refs.
“Credit to them, then,” Prescott said.
On Tuesday, the Cowboys QB took ot Twitter and released an apology for his words.
“I deeply regret the comments I made regarding the officials after the game on Sunday.
I was caught up in the emotion of a disappointing loss and my words were uncalled for and unfair.”
The officiating crew has faced major scrutiny from Dallas fans after appearing to delay Prescott’s attempt to spike the ball with just seconds on the clock. Prescott ran the ball 17 yards with 14 seconds remaining and without having timeouts.
“The fans felt the same way as us,” Prescott said at the presser. “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.”
Thankfully, Dak went back on his words, because we know how fans take things to heart and would continue the same thing in future games if they feel like something did not go their way.
