Sources indicate NFL Bans Eagles security chief Dom DiSandro from sideline to finish regular season


After being ejected from a game earlier this month for a scuffle with 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw, the National Football League (NFL) has mandated that Eagles security chief Dom DiSandro be prohibited from being on the sideline for the remainder of the regular season, according to two individuals who are familiar with the decision made by the league, who spoke to The Associated Press on Saturday.

Based on the information provided by one of the individuals, DiSandro is still permitted to go with the club to Seattle for the Monday night game, and he is able to carry out all other work responsibilities; however, he is not permitted to be on the sideline.

Both individuals, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the fact that the league has not yet made its decision public, stated that DiSandro is able to return to the defensive sidelines for the playoffs.

After Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith made a reception in the third quarter of Philadelphia’s game against San Francisco on December 3, DiSandro grabbed Greenlaw off of him and yelled at him.

The game ended in a 42-19 loss for Philadelphia. DiSandro was given a penalty for unnecessary roughness on the play, and Greenlaw rose up and reached over two officials to put his hand in his face. Greenlaw was punished for his actions.

As a result of the unnecessary roughness penalty, Greenlaw was ejected from the game and eventually fined a total of $10,927 by the league. Additionally, DiSandro was instructed to leave, and as he made his way to the locker room, Eagles supporters presented him with a resounding ovation.

A provision that stipulates that non-player staff are barred from initiating physical contact, insulting, or directing insults to rival players or officials was reiterated in a memo that was sent out to teams by the National Football League at the end of the previous week.

In addition, the message stated that only game officials or coaches should attempt to break up fights between team members. Any infraction, according to the league, might result in monetary fines or even suspensions.

The previous week, DiSandro had a meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and as a result, he was not permitted to watch the Eagles play an away game against Dallas on Sunday night. While he was within the tunnel, he observed the game.

DiSandro became a member of the Eagles in 1999 and currently works as a senior consultant to Howie Roseman, who is the general manager of the band. DiSandro, who is 45 years old and has a hefty build, prefers to maintain a low profile but is frequently seen in front of media cameras.

He is in charge of overseeing all matters pertaining to safety and security for players, coaches, and executives.

Aside from that, he is in charge of the security measures that pertain to the team’s travel and logistics, he is also responsible for directing security at the team’s training complex, and he educates players on the National Football League’s personal conduct rules.
