National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell's wife defends him with anonymous Twitter account

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell's wife defends him with anonymous Twitter account

"On Sept. 26, @ProFootballTalk, the Twitter account for the popular NBC Sports blog, tweeted that it was "on the commissioner" to solve the anthem issues. Give him credit." Much like a senator willing to take on the president, Roger Goodell is showing courage when he dodges opportunities to mention the actual issues that players are protesting, police brutality and institutionalized racism.

The Wall Street Journal figured out the account belonged to Jane Goodell based on her Twitter follows, which included accounts related to her children's schools. "As a former media member, I'm always bothered when the coverage doesn't provide a complete and accurate picture of a story".

The NFL did comment defending Jane Skinner Goodell and downplayed the tweeting. I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love-and I always will. She confirmed that she uses a fake twitter account to defend her husband. "He is already doing this". Jane Skinner Goodell used the account to engage journalists who reported and/or opined unfavorably about her husband.

Roger Goodell has taken his share of criticism over the years, but the National Football League commissioner has also recently had an anonymous person willing to take aim at his critics online.

Goodell has been married to his wife since 1997. "Reads like press release from players' union". I have a feeling she'll be back online soon with another account, but with a better strategy for staying in the shadows.
