An emotional night at the Link had tempers flaring on both sidelines in a game the 49ers not only beat, but exposed the Eagles. Referees had to break up pushing and shoving on numerous occasions and on both sidelines.
One scuffle in particular stood out and resulted in Eagles head of security Dom DiSandro being ejected from the game.
Easy to see how DiSandro would be upset as he did take a shot to the face from Dre Greenlaw. But the 49ers are making the point he should not have even been that close, let alone on, the playing surface at all. Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke on the situation after the game.
Eagles Fans React as You'd Expect to DiSandro Ejection
Obviously, the Philly faithful had a different approach to the game.
DiSandro, a fan favorite and staple to the gameday experience, left the field to a standing ovation, as if he just led the Birds on a game-winning drive. But their respect to Big Dom did not stop there.
One fan took it to the extreme, creating a highlight tape of Dom's best moments:
Here's to hoping nothing further comes of this for Big Dom.
This goes to show that not all heroes wear capes. The Eagles need him on the sideline ready to go at a moment's notice. There is no telling what Greenlaw had in mind as he approached the Eagles sideline. Dom might've saved a season-ending injury from happening by being there. The Birds need him back out there to make another run at the Super Bowl.
