49ers LB Dre Greenlaw ejected after taking swipe at Eagles’ head of security ‘Big Dom’

Frank Schwab

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw isn’t a dude that anyone wants to mess with. The same should be said about Philadelphia Eagles head of security Dom DiSandro.

They call him “Big Dom” for a reason. He’s a big man.

Greenlaw got ejected for taking a swipe at Big Dom on the sideline. Greenlaw suplexed Eagles receiver DeVonta Smith near the Philadelphia sideline at the end of a 13-yard gain to the 49ers’ 24-yard line. The Eagles sideline immediately started yelling at the officials to throw the flag, including DiSandro. Greenlaw then stuck a finger in DiSandro’s face, making contact with him.

It wasn’t a big shot but the contact was enough to get him ejected.

Here’s the contact between Niners LB Dre Greenlaw and Eagles head of security Dom DiSandro. Both were ejected from game. Chippy game between NFC

DiSandro was ejected too, but the Eagles will take that tradeoff. DiSandro left the sideline as Philly fans gave him a standing ovation and wildly cheered.

The postgame officiating pool report explained further:

The Eagles scored shortly after the incident. Hey, any shift in momentum can help, even the head of security getting tossed.

You see new things all the time in the NFL, and a linebacker and opposing team head of security being ejected for getting into a scuffle might be a first for everyone.
