The owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, took to Twitter to vent his frustrations over the video game controversy surrounding the team and other major sports.
“No one would ever have done that,” Jones tweeted.
“They were doing it for the love of the game.
It was just a dumb move, a bad move.”
The Cowboys have been the subject of a series of negative video game controversies, including a recent scandal involving an employee allegedly defacing an online game with the slogan “We Can’t Stop” that the team said was meant to honor the victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
In September, a video surfaced on social media showing a Cowboys employee using an iPad to make a “W” and then a “N” to simulate the sound of an explosive device.
Jones, who owns the team for more than 30 years, has repeatedly criticized the team’s fans for their support of the players.
The owner also said the team would be fine if they did not play the game with its signature song, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Jones was criticized in August after the Cowboys were accused of defacing a game on the Xbox game consoles.
The video showed a player using an Xbox controller to spray a fan with a red paintball gun and then running over him.
Jones has repeatedly denied the accusations.
He also said he would not tolerate any of the team or its players defacing the stadium.
The Dallas Cowboys play the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Wild Card game of the 2017 NFL playoffs.
The video game incident also drew backlash from the NFL, which is investigating the matter.
