NFL Commish Tells Players to End #TakeAKnee 0

A common place for those scathing remarks is Twitter.

While Kevin Durant, Adam Silver and James Comey have all likely had secret social-media accounts discovered, National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell's wife, Jane Skinner Goodell, is the latest to join them.

The Journal was able to deduce who was behind the account thanks in part to the accounts it followed (some related to the Goodells' children's school, for instance) and Mrs. Goodell copped to being the author when asked. Thin-skinned Kevin Durant was recently accused of running a fake Twitter account to take on negative news and opinion about him on social media. From Kate Upton sticking up for Justin Verlander not winning a Cy Young a year ago to Miko Grimes cheerleading for her husband, cornerback Brent Grimes, on social media, plenty of athletes have gotten a digital assist from their significant others.

"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", Goodell said in a written statement sent to WSJ. I'm also a wife and a mom. "I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!"

This is becoming the year of secret Twitter accounts.
