The mighty warlords of the NFL's league offices have swung their swords. Their decision has ripped through the Philadelphia Eagles organization and the Delaware Valley like a hot knife through butter. Okay, maybe it wasn't as dramatic as that, but this is something worth mentioning.
Following his ejection from the Eagles versus San Francisco 49ers Week 13 clash, one that stemmed from a sideline altercation involving him and Niners linebacker Dre Greenlaw, Dom DiSandro, Philly's chief security officer and the Niners star have since buried all axes. The NFL wasn't satisfied. They decided to flex their muscles and exercise a little discipline.
Dom DiSandro won't be on the Eagles sideline for Sunday Night Football versus the Cowboys.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that DiSandro will be barred from being on Philly's sideline for the coming Sunday Night Football game. He will, however, be allowed to travel to Arlington and perform all of his regular duties.
Schefter also reports that Greenlaw is expected to be fined on Saturday for the hit on DeVonta Smith that "led to last Sunday’s sideline fracas". With that, we officially turn the page from this one and focus totally on the Cowboys.
We just have one request. We're asking those of you who have plans to print and manufacture 'Free Big Dom' T-shirts to avoid the temptation to do so. Please... Pretty please... That won't help anything and frankly that's the last thing the world needs right now.
There's so many other things that you can do with your time. No one's going to buy the T-shirt.
Update: League offices fine Greenlaw and Jalen Carter.
Fines have been handed down. Greenlaw's wallet will indeed be lighter this week. According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, he has been signed $10,927.
Two other players from last week's Eagles/49ers clash. Jalen Carter received a harsher fine than Greenlaw.
We have no say-so in these things. It's hard t determine why Carter's fine was higher though. Oh well... On to the Dallas Cowboys.
