Ever had trouble with the airlines and carry-on bags? Count Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford as part of the crowd.

The 27-year-old was boarding an American Airlines flight to catch his cousin’s game back in Windsor, Ontario when he had a little trouble with his carry-on bag being one inch bigger than the regulations.

After checking the bag, which Crawford claims is his typical carry-on luggage that has never before been checked, the Boise State alumnus had a few choice words for the airline employee at the gate before boarding the plane, which lead to his expulsion from the airliner before takeoff.

American Airlines is the official airliner of the Cowboys. How this situation gets resolved will be interesting. But Crawford isn’t the only member of the Cowboys universe to have issues with American Airlines. Routinely, beat writers who cover the team have complained publicly on social media about the below average quality of service.

Update: American Airlines and Tyrone Crawford resolved their differences and the official airlines of the Cowboys got the defensive lineman out on the next flight.
