NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is often criticized for the league’s shortcomings.

And many of those criticisms are expressed through social media, namely Twitter:

However, there is one Twitter user who defends the commissioner — always.

His name is Jones Smith and he uses the handle, “@forargument”:


As it turns out, according to the Wall Street Journal, Jones Smith isn’t a man. In fact, he’s not even a real person.

Jones Smith is actually former Fox News host and Goodell’s wife of 20 years, Jane Skinner Goodell. She explained herself to the WSJ:

“It was a REALLY silly thing to do and done out of frustration — and love. As a former media member, I’m always bothered when the coverage doesn’t provide a complete and accurate picture of a story. I’m also a wife and a mom. I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love — and I always will. I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!”

And after coming clean about the secret Twitter account, Jane deleted it.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy defending the wife, telling the WSJ:

“Sounds like what she did is what every spouse in America would want to do.”

It’s like Jane told the WSJ, she’s a woman who will do whatever she has to do in order to protect the man she loves.
