Dom DiSandro has a new title. The new title doesn’t translate to new access to the field or new abilities to interact with opposing players.

DiSandro added “game day coaching duties” to his previous titles – senior advisor to the general manager and chief of security. Some interpreted the amendment to reflect the Eagles’ efforts to discipline DeSandro for his actions during the Week 13 loss to the 49ers.

In that case, DeSandro (who was suspended for the rest of the regular season) got into a fight and made contact with a 49ers player. His new title doesn’t give him permission to do that.

The Eagles described the meaning as speculation, and explained that they had not told any members of the media that DiSandro’s new title would grant him new access or rights.

A memo sent to all teams on September 13, 2023 reads: “It is prohibited to make unnecessary physical contact or insult, threaten or direct non-players of a club (eg members of management, coaches, trainers, equipment staff). Insults or gestures towards opponents, game officials or league officials. Violations before or during the game may result in disqualification. Any violations on the field of play on the day of the game, including post-game, may result in disciplinary action by the Commissioner. Penalty: Loss of 15 yards.

In the year On December 6, 2023 (after the Desandro incident), the league said this in another memo: The National Football League’s playing rules and our game operations policies expressly prohibit non-players — coaches, trainers, equipment workers, safety officials or others — from making physical contact with opposing players. , taunting or using insulting or abusive words towards opposing players, match officials or others involved in the game. In the event of a dispute, the club staff must allow the coaches and match officials to control the situation, with the officials assessing the appropriate penalty and with the help of the league office as necessary. Under no circumstances may Club staff meet or have physical contact with other Club player(s) or other staff.

So, no, the new title doesn’t change anything. DiSandro said: “If he has had unnecessary physical contact with or [directs] “Speech or gestures that are abusive, threatening, or insulting to opponents, game officials or league officials,” will result in another ejection. If anything, his history and the high level of trust and responsibility his new title reflects will make his next punishment even worse.
