Roger Goodell's Wife Uses Anonymous Twitter Account To Defend Him

Roger Goodell's wife has been defending husband for years with secret Twitter account

Roger Goodell runs the largest professional sports league in the United States. A common place for those scathing remarks is Twitter. But a report by the Wall Street Journal outlines Goodell's biggest supporter, at home and on social media, is his wife, Jane.

Skinner Goodell has since deleted the account. Her only mistake was blurring the line between her secret account account for talking smack and her account for following her kids' school.

Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal has investigated an account under the name @forargument on Twitter.

"It was a REALLY silly thing to do and done out of frustration-and love".

With all the fire the NFL is facing regarding the national anthem protests, Ms. Goodell's account has become active to defend her husband. As a former media member, I'm always bothered when the coverage doesn't provide a complete and accurate picture of a story.

Goodell's wife, who is a former broadcast journalist with Fox News, has also taken aim at WSJ columnist Jason Gay and other sportswriters, according to the Journal. "I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!" However, those women did not hide behind a fake Twitter account to make their feelings known.

Jane Skinner Goodell, in response to The Wall Street Journal's discovery of her use of the account, called it a passionate act done out of love.
