Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, the Dallas Cowboys lost a playoff game at home after winning their shitty division and not showing up in the playoffs.
And no, that’s not the punchline, here’s where it gets really good. THEY’RE BLAMING THE OFFICIALS! I can’t make this shit up. As my Cowboys-loving Uncle said, “Did nothing but beat up on shitty teams and medium-shitty teams,” all season, are blaming the officials. Not their overpriced “star” running back, Ezekiel Elliott, who put up a WHOPPING 31 yards on 12 carries (2.6YPC). Or their overpriced “star” QB, Dak Prescott, who went 20/43, 254 yards, 1 Touchdown, and 1 Interception. The 49ers defense also sacked Prescott 5 times.
That brings us to the star (see what I did there) of this article, Rayne Dakota Prescott, aka Dak Prescott, Quarterback for ‘America’s Team.’ You know, the guy that ran a QB draw in a 1-score game with 14 seconds left and no time-outs? Ya, this guy is blaming the officials for their loss.
Dak Prescott ran a QB draw with 14 seconds left and handed the ball to the center, who placed the ball himself.
However, the ref is supposed to spot the ball.
The move cost Dallas a chance at a game-winning play. The 49ers advance.

Prescott has been in the league for 6 years yet, forgot he’s not allowed to spot the ball himself. This, of course, after running the worst play-call late in a game since Russell Wilson threw the ball from the 1-yard line. However, it is all the fault of those meddling officials.
After Dak spiked the ball to end the game and hand the victory to San Francisco. The Cowboys tried pleading for time to be put back on the clock. After reviewing and having a discussion the officials announced the game was over and high-tailed it to safety. They knew exactly what was coming next, and they were right.

Stay classy Cowboys fans! Throwing garbage, beers cans, water bottles. Whatever they could find they were throwing in the direction of the officials. You see at the end of the clip Cowboys Defensive End, Demarcus Lawrence, swat a bottle away with his helmet. When asked about it Dak initially said it was sad as he thought the fans were throwing garbage at the players. A member of the media advised him they were throwing it at the officials, Prescott’s response was, “Credit to them.” Don’t believe me? Here’s the clip

What a whiny, little bitch! This is not how a professional athlete and face of the franchise should act. Prescott is endorsing this type of behavior and even encouraging it to happen again in the future when unhappy with the on-field officials by responding this way. And then to follow it up saying, “The fans felt the same way as us. I guess that’s why the refs took off and got out of there so fast.”
Enjoy your off-season Dak, maybe you can work on your professionalism along with your accuracy over the Spring.
