Sunday afternoon was not a good day to be a Cowboys fan for several reasons.
The Dallas Cowboys had another season end short of expectations, and several fans that saw Saturday’s playoff loss in person were fed up with it. Cowboys fans were spotted throwing debris on the field at the conclusion of the team’s 23-17 loss to the 49ers in the wild card round. While it initially appeared that fans were throwing debris at players, reports later stated that fans were directing their anger and trash at the running officials.
On Monday, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones addressed the controversy.
“That’s just unfortunate. That’s not the way I see our fans. I think we are a class act. There is just no place for that,” Jones said.
Many felt that they had been robbed of a potential game-winning pass attempt on the final play of the game when Dak Prescott had run up the middle and tried to set the ball. However, he gave the ball to hiscenter instead of the ref who was trailing the play.
That ref ran into Dak, spotted the ball, but it was too late as time expired.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott initially started off ripping the fan base before being told that they were actually targeting the officials.
“A credit to them them,” Prescott said.
The Cowboys’ Super Bowl drought will now reach 26 years.
