That was the clue that tipped WSJ off that Jane Skinner Goodell was behind it.

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 Journal found over a dozen instances of Skinner Goodell, a former Fox News anchor, defending her husband on Twitter to such media entities as ESPN, NBC Sports and the newspaper itself.

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.

"It was a REALLY silly thing to do and done out of frustration-and love", she said, per Beaton. As a former media member, I'm always bothered when coverage doesn't provide a complete and accurate picture of a story. "He is already doing this".

"Reads like press release from players' union". I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love-and I always will.

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

In one case @forargument slammed Pro Football Talk warning the site to "do better reporting" and insisting that the site was "behind" the real news about the commissioner. She confirmed that she uses a fake twitter account to defend her husband.

"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?"

Probably because she didn't expect anyone to pay attention, it doesn't look like she took great pains to throw people off the scent.
