A bombshell report showed that Roger Goodell’s wife Jane Skinner Goodell has been defending him from an anonymous account on Twitter.

The Wall Street Journal broke the story that Skinner had been using an account named @forargument to tweet at people who were critical of her husband.

The report reads in part:

Who is this valiant defender of a man who has so few defenders?

It is Roger Goodell’s wife, Jane Skinner Goodell, The Wall Street Journal confirmed after an examination of the account.

“It was a REALLY silly thing to do and done out of frustration—and love.” Mrs. Goodell said Thursday afternoon in a written statement. “As a former media member, I’m always bothered when the coverage doesn’t provide a complete and accurate picture of a story. I’m also a wife and a mom. I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love—and I always will. I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!”

Within an hour after the Journal reached out to Mrs. Goodell and the NFL, the account was made private. Later, it was taken down completely.

This is the last thing that Goodell and the league need right now. The guy is already getting hammered for all the national anthem protests, and now his wife is responding to his haters through a fake account. Not a great look for the most powerful man in all of sports.

She’s married to a highly successful man, has plenty of money and somehow is wasting her time on Twitter. Another example of how social media doesn’t do anything other than create problems.
