Cowboys’ Dak Prescott fined for supporting fan throwing trash at referee to lose to 49ers

Following his comments that fans threw trash at the umpires following the Cowboys’ controversial loss to the 49ers last weekend, Dak Prescott was disciplined.

After Dallas’ loss, Prescott said ‘credits them’ in response to fans throwing trash at NFL officials leaving the field.

“The fans feel the same way as we do,” Prescott added. “I guess that’s why the refs took off and got out of there so quickly. I think everyone’s annoyed with the way this thing is going.”

After reflection and public backlash, Prescott apologized.

Precott’s comments were widely criticized in the NFL community. It even spilled over into the NBA community, prompting the NBA Referees Association to stand up for the NFL Referee Association.

“NBRA condemns Dak Prescott’s comments tolerating violent behavior towards game officials,” The association said via Twitter on Tuesday. “As an NFL leader, he should have known better. We encourage the NFL to take action to prevent this reprehensible behavior in the future.”

The NFL Referees Association has yet to comment on the matter, although the action from the NBRA appears to be one in solidarity with the NFLRA.

The Cowboys, who raised the ball to San Francisco’s 24-yard line with eight seconds remaining, were unable to capture the ball after an official dashed into the Cowboys’ line of attack, preventing them from calling another play.
