Thursday's HOT MIC

Thursday's HOT MIC

Well, that explains it:

More from The Wall Street Journal:

When National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell is under attack, as he so often is these days, @forargument is there to fight back.

Wait, who?

The Twitter account, under the name “Jones smith,” has no followers, no profile picture and has been virtually dormant for long periods since its creation in 2014.

But @forargument has roared to life in the past few months, rising up to vigorously defend Mr. Goodell against perceived attacks on his handling of issues such as the national anthem protests by players.

The most frequent sparring partner for @forargument is the nation’s sports media. On Sept. 26, @ProFootballTalk, the Twitter account for the popular NBC Sports blog, tweeted that it was “on the commissioner” to solve the anthem issues.

In response, @forargument tweeted: “Please do better reporting. He is already doing this. You are behind.”

Who is this valiant defender of a man who has so few defenders?

It is Roger Goodell’s wife, Jane Skinner Goodell, The Wall Street Journal confirmed after an examination of the account.

Ah, true love.

Goodell is a lucky, lucky man. The only people in America who like him are the woman he has to live with and the team owners upon whom his job is dependent.

That's 33 people in all of America. Not a great percentage, but not bad if you just ignore everyone else.
