Media Fight Happened In Cowboys Locker Room

According to Richie Witt from DFW Sportatorium, after the Cowboys lost to the Broncos Sunday 51-48 reporters in the Dallas dressing room got into a little confrontation. From Witt's blog post...
quote:

"Marring Sunday's beautiful game was an ugly scene in the Cowboys' locker room, in the form of a "fight" between local media members. After sleeping on it I've decided not to name names because 1) I don't want to dignify their actions and overshadow the game; 2) I understand discipline, and possibly jobs, could be at stake. In general, what went down: A photographer from CBS 11 and on-air reporters from CBS 11 and ABC Channel 8 got in a turf war with a reporter from ESPN Dallas. Just jostling for position around Sean Lee's locker for a gangbang interview. It happens. I've been on both ends of this. Sometimes you're holding your recorder, it's in the "shot" of a TV camera and your arm gets gently nudged to move it down. No biggie. And sometimes there's something in your camera's view and you - hopefully politely - ask the obstrusive object to alter its position. Happens several times in every post-game locker room in every stadium every week. But on Sunday the ESPN Dallas reporter took offense to being having anyone dare "put their hands" on him. He bristled. He cussed. He physically challenged a photographer and a reporter. He caused Lee to end the interview and head to the showers. He was eventually escorted out of the locker room by Jerry Jones' body guard, Roosevelt. After being let back in, the glares and words and accidentally-on-purpose shoulder contact continued, prompting the Cowboys' public relations staff to prematurely close the locker room and usher all media out. It was unprofessional. It was embarrassing. The media - especially in the wake of a wonderful, milestone game like that - aren't supposed to be the story. Note to everyone involved: Grow up."

Have the cowboys suck so low that they take pride in an almost win?
