Jane Skinner Goodell called the Tweets "a really silly thing to do", but said she only did it out of frustration and love.
As criticism of Goodell flooded the internet for his stance on the recent anthem protests - and of course, residual Deflategate issues - the mysterious account faithfully came to the defense of the 58-year-old. "As a former media member, I'm always bothered when the coverage doesn't provide a complete and accurate picture of a story". However, after the Wall Street Journal asked Jane Skinner Goodell, the commissioner's wife, about the account, she admitted to being the owner in a written statement.
Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal has investigated an account under the name @forargument on Twitter.
She also replied to ProFootballTalk one time for saying that Goodell needed to take responsibility for resolving player protests. She confirmed that she uses a fake twitter account to defend her husband. "He is already doing this". He added that Goodell was unaware of his wife's activity.

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?"
