Meet Roger Goodell's Secret Twitter Defender

Meet Roger Goodell's Secret Twitter Defender

I'm also a wife and a mom.

You can see more examples of tweets from the account at the Wall Street Journal. I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love-and I always will.

The account was said to have specifically targeted media members who were critical of the commissioner.

She also tweeted in response to a newspaper clipping about former Senator Charles Goodell, Roger's father. "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. "Let's celebrate the new season". She confirmed that she uses a fake twitter account to defend her husband.

Jane Skinner Goodell provided a statement to the WSJ on Thursday, explaining her actions were silly, but done out of frustration and love.

Goodell's wife coming to his digital defense is nothing new in sports and media, though it is embarrassing. 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.

A little less than a month after Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant got caught throwing what he thought was anonymous shade on Twitter, the Wall Street Journal's Andrew Beaton discovered Jane Skinner Goodell, the wife of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, uses an anonymous Twitter account to defend her husband and the NFL.

When reached by the paper, she admitted that the account belonged to her.
