Reports are swirling that after the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night, the owner of the Cowboys, Jerry Jones, was locked out of the team's locker room.
After the Cowboys left the field, they returned to the visitors' locker room and must have forgotten to leave the door unlocked for the boss.
It was noted that locking out the team's owner was not intentional, as it happened to be just a comical situation.
Matt Barrie of KXAS in Dallas stated that he witnessed Jones repeatedly banging on the door in an attempt to get into the player's locker room
"Jerry Jones just pounded locker room door because no one would let him in. It's the angriest I've seen him all year," Barrie wrote on Twitter.
On Monday, Barre made an appearance on "NFL AM," a popular radio talk show, and revealed that Jones did finally manage to get someone to open the door for him and was able to take questions from reporters once he made it inside.
The comical situation that presented itself Sunday fell right in line with how the season has played out for the Cowboys so far.
The Cowboys fell to 3-5 record and are in jeopardy of falling out of playoff contention just about halfway through the regular season.
Dallas quarterback Tony Romo threw for 321 yards on 25 of 35 passing attempts while the team rushed for only 65 yards as the Cowboys lost their fourth game in their last five.
"There's a reason they're undefeated halfway through the season," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said during a post-game press conference about the Falcons.
"This is a challenging place to play at. I thought we did some good things in the ballgame. They did more good things. We didn't do enough to win this game in all three phases of our football team," he added.
