Cowboys’ Neville Gallimore had request for fans after playoff loss

Neville Gallimore on the field

Dallas Cowboys fans were understandably disappointed with their team’s performance in Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers, but one player hinted that they may have crossed the line while voicing their displeasure.

Cowboys defensive tackle Neville Gallimore tweeted after the game that he deserves any “hate and slander” that comes his way. However, the second-year player asked Cowboys nation to “leave my family out of this.”

It’s unclear if members of Gallimore’s family were harassed by Cowboys fans, but the tweet must have stemmed from something.

Gallimore recorded three tackles in the Cowboys’ 23-17 loss. Dallas was gashed on the ground for 169 yards and two touchdowns, which was a big factor in the outcome.

The Cowboys once again fell short of expectations this yeae, so it’s no surprise their fans were irate. That’s no excuse for going after a player’s family or throwing trash on the field, which some of them also did.
