The NFL fined Cowboys QB Dak Prescott $25,000 on Thursday after he heaped praise on Cowboys fans for throwing trash at officials following the team’s 26-17 loss to the 49ers.
After the game, a game that ended controversially when the clock expired before the officials could get the ball properly spotted for the next play, Cowboys fans took their frustrations out on the refs.

In the post-game press conference, Prescott was asked what he thought about the anger the fans showed his teammates and the referees. Prescott defended his teammates, not so much the referees.
