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

13 October 2017

"He is already doing this". With the exception of her tweet calling Journal columnist Jason Gay "immature," Mrs. Goodell appears to have been fairly civil with her clapbacks.

Jane Skinner Goodell called the use of the account a passionate act done out of love.

Unfortunately, if you log on to Twitter, you won't be able to find Mrs. Goodell's account, because she made a decision to shut it down.

"As a former media member, I'm always bothered when the coverage doesn't provide a complete and accurate picture of a story", Goodell said in a written statement sent to WSJ.

According to the WSJ, all 14 tweets from @forargument since August were spirited defenses of criticisms of her husband leveled by media reports, and all of the entreaties contained therein apparently fell on deaf ears.

If you've logged on to Twitter recently, you may have noticed that Roger Goodell doesn't have a lot of fans on the social media website.

The account was run by Goodell's wife. I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love-and I always will. She later joined Fox News where she hosted a daily newscast before retiring to take care of her children.

The account was deleted after the story was published, but the paper saved screenshots of them before they went down the Internet memory hole. "I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!" The daughter of Samuel Skinner, who was chief of staff and Secretary of Transportation under former president George H.W. Bush, she stepped down from her on-air roles in 2011, announcing that she wanted to spend more time with her family.

"Sounds like what she did is what every spouse in America would want to do", National Football League spokesman Brian McCarthy said.
