The boo birds nestled at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday afternoon, coming out in full force during the first half. They booed Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo loudly, getting more and more vocal after his three interceptions in the first half.
But the most memorable boos came when owner Jerry Jones was shown on the big screen. It was an awkward moment in the stadium, as Jones was delivering a promo on breast cancer awareness.
“I know that our fans didn’t connect that sensitivity at all,” Jones said. “I know they didn’t. And I share their frustration and understand how it’s directed to me. I just understand that.
“I was disappointed that we were playing like that. I didn’t anticipate us coming in here and playing like that. I thought we had a great chance to beat this team. But we can’t expect to play like the reason that I was getting booed and have an opportunity to come back at the end of the game and win it, although we almost did.”
The boos were nothing new to Jones, who bought the team in 1989 and promptly fired Tom Landry.
“There’s never been a honeymoon for me here in Dallas,” Jones said.
Romo heard the most amount of boos in his time with the Cowboys.
“I would have booed us too,” Romo said. “We deserved it at that time. We did not start the game the way we wanted to.”-- Drew Davison
