What punishment did the NFL impose on Dak Prescott?

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was eliminated last Sunday at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers in the Wild Card Round of the NFL playoffs by a score of 23-17 and after the game he made comments in which he indirectly supported some fans who threw bottles in the direction of the game officials, those comments have cost him in his pocket.

The NFL's tough decision

The NFL announced Thursday that Prescott was fined $25,000 for the aforementioned comments in which he mentioned "Credit to them then, credit to them," referring to the fans after a question from a reporter at a press conference right after the game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

At first, Precott had understood that the bottles were thrown at Cowboys players and said he was saddened by the fans' reaction, but when it was made clear to him that it was at the officials, he changed his mind.

The reason for Dak Prescott's comments

Prescott's anger against the referees was essentially because of the last play when he was unable to spike the ball and time ran out after a carry called by head coach Mike McCarthy with 13 seconds on the clock where he was swept and the slowness of the authority prevented him from being able to draw another play.

This Tuesday, in a statement, the "America's Team" quarterback expressed regret for the aforementioned comment.

"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."

"I hold the NFL Officials in the highest regard and have always respected their professionalism and the difficulty of their jobs. The safety of everyone who attends a game or participates on the field of a sporting event is a very serious matter. That was a mistake on my behalf, and I am sorry."
