Roger Goodell's wife was defending him from anonymous Twitter account

Thurman Thomas

The Twitter account was marked private and then later deleted after the Wall Street Journal contact Mrs. Goodell about it. In one example, after Pro Football Talk tweeted on September 26 that it was "on the commissioner" to resolve the issue of player protests during the national anthem, she replied, "Please do better reporting".

"Please do better reporting", Skinner Goodell replied on Twitter using her stealth account.

"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. The account called Commissioner Goodell's detractors "immature". I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love-and I always will.

The Wall Street Journal just found the one person on Twitter who doesn't hate Roger Goodell: his wife. "He is already doing this".

The account was also seen attacking people who said Commissioner Goodell staged a photo showing him standing with three grinning New England Patriots fans after he had suspended quarterback Tom Brady because of Deflategate. She confirmed that she uses a fake twitter account to defend her husband.

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

"Reads like a press release from players' union".

Goodell's wife coming to his digital defense is nothing new in sports and media, though it is embarrassing. "(D Smith sounds like D Trump with the inaccurate firebombs)", @forargument tweeteed to ESPN writer Seth Wickersham.
