Super Bowl Sunday was a special day for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.
While the star quarterback wasn’t playing in the Super Bowl, he won the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
However, the crowd in Arizona booed him, despite winning an award for his community service.
Come on man. Dak Prescott introduced as Walter Payton Man of the Year award winner and booed heavily. You don’t have to be a fan of his playing but give it up for his community service. He’s a good dude. Come on

While the crowd wasn’t behind Prescott, one user on Twitter points out why he was getting those boos.
Ain’t that serious. Eagles fans rolling deep, hate the Cowboys. Understood and endearing keeping the rivalry alive and well.

With fans of the Eagles rolling deep in Arizona, no one was giving any love to the Cowboys quarterback.
Nah fam. We don’t like the cowboys. Don’t care lol

Another Twitter user points out how the boos are consistent with how the fan base feels about their NFC East rival.
Love that Eagles fans keep it consistent.

According to Matt Sain on Twitter, it’s “in their blood” to boo anyone from the Cowboys.
Agreed! But, Eagles fans are gonna eagle fan it up. It’s in their blood.

While the fans were booing him for being a member of the Cowboys, someone points out how fans of the Cowboys will do the same had the roles been reversed.
I promise everything will be okay if he gets booed. Cowboys fans would’ve booed the eagles player too

However, not everyone let those fans get a pass for booing Prescott.
For Scott Stevenson on Twitter, he finds the boos as something disrespectful to Walter Payton.
They were literally booing Walter Payton and his kids.
I usually don't say this type of stuff but I think we officially found the worst sports city in the country.

While most of the reactions were people explaining why Prescott got those boos, others felt the boos were uncalled for.
To people like them, they felt it was a moment to honor the Cowboys quarterback for his work outside of football.
They don’t see the booing as something good, unlike one user that feels the boos were a sign of respect.
The Philly fans used their “respect” boo there, much different accent than the typical negative boo.
