Roger Goodell's wife defends him with stealth Twitter account

Jane Skinner Goodell was an anchor for Fox News before she retired in 2011.

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

Jane Skinner Goodell, the wife of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, used an anonymous Twitter account to defend her husband, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

According to Beaton, the official Twitter account for Pro Football Talk was Skinner Goodell's "most frequent sparring partner".

Thanks to the WSJ story, the NFL is now aware of Mrs. Goodell's Twitter account, and it doesn't sound like the league is very concerned.

Her exact quote was "It was a really silly thing to do and was done out of frustration and love".

Analysts on Citi's earnings call questioned when the incentives would end and investors would start to see a return. Citi cited "continued growth in loans and assets under management" for the rise, as well as higher interest rates.

When the Journal's Jason Gay tweeted out a photo of the commissioner posing with some Patriots fans during a preseason game, with the caption, "roger goodell with three guys who will be disowned by their families tomorrow", Skinner Goodell replied, "Why is everyone so immature?"

"I'm also a wife and a mom", she continued. "He is already doing this".

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

"In response, @forargument tweeted: 'Please do better reporting".

"The premise of your article is silly", @forargument tweeted on October 3 at the Journal after an article about disagreement among league owners over handling of the anthem protests. What board of directors in this country would all agree on this issue?" to the Wall Street Journal, referring to an article about disagreement among NFL owners regarding national anthem protests.

The account was deleted after the story was published, but the paper saved screenshots of them before they went down the Internet memory hole.
