Dak Prescott apologizes for post-game comments following loss to San Francisco 49ers
Dak Prescott raised eyebrows Sunday night when he commented on fans throwing trash on the field following the Dallas Cowboys’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Prescott on Tuesday wrote an apology on social media after he was asked about the fans directing their frustration toward the officials, and not the Cowboys players.
“I deeply regret the comments I made regarding the officials after the game on Sunday,” Prescott said. “I was caught up in the emotion of a disappointing loss and my words were uncalled for and unfair.”
Prescott didn’t appear to face backlash until the media clarified what might have happened — fans throwing trash at officials.
“Credit to them, then,” he said.
The earlier part of his answer focused on fans’ frustration toward the players,
“No, I didn’t see that, it’s sad,” Prescott said. “You’re talking about men that come out every day of their lives and give everything to this sport. Give everything to this game of football. Nobody wants to succeed more than we want to succeed. I understand fans and fan is the word for fanatic, I get that. But to know everything we put into this day in and day out, trying our hardest. Nobody comes into the game wanting or expecting to lose. For people to act that way when you’re supposed to be a supporter and be with us through thick and thin, that’s tough.”
