Roger Goodell pokes fun at Twitter hack

Getty Images

On Tuesday, someone hacked the NFL’s Twitter account and announced that Commissioner Roger Goodell had died. Goodell responded with an attempt at self-deprecating humor, on Twitter. (Unless that too was a hack.)

“Man, you leave the office for 1 day of golf [with Jim Kelly] & your own network kills you off,” Goodell said.

It’s a mildly amusing observation from a guy whose public persona rarely reflects humor, and the responses on Twitter predictably range from profane to alarming to hilarious. But even Goodell’s effort to appear like one of the guys contains a small dose of tone-deafness, given that it wasn’t his “network” that “killed him off” but the league itself, through its official Twitter page.

With the league contacting law enforcement regarding the hack, any efforts at humor likely will end with Goodell’s tweet. Surely, the league will push for full and complete prosecution of whoever hacked into the 19.2-million follower account — as the league should.

  1. Maybe he should grow up and realize that he is so hated for his actions and ignorance. Maybe if you admit you fraudulently manufactured a prosecution against Brady and apologize people might be willing to forgive you, until then WE HATE YOU!!!!!!!!!!

  2. i didn’t know about this tweet since I don’t follow satire accounts like the NFL and Mortenson and BSPN shills.

  3. Goodell could give $10 million of is own money to St. Jude and this site would still slam him. #gettingreallyold

  4. That joyous picture of Roger above must have been after the Patriots choked away their 2007 wannabe undefeated season, man that was hilarious, gotta admit!
    If only they could have videotaped Eli and friends. 🙂

  5. The investigation is already complete. Go figure. It was found that, more probable than not, the NFL’s Twitter account was hacked, and the Patriots did it. Makes sense.

  6. Roger Goodell is an excellent commissioner and the NFL is lucky to have him, he is extremely well respected everywhere.
    Just because a few Johnny paycheck types do not like him means nothing.
    He’s laughing at everyone on his way to the bank.

    Gee a man that can laugh at himself…..Cheaties fans take a hint you don’t want Roger to be better than you.

    Not much chance of that, considering hes a liar and fraud. I have a bigger question for you: Why on earth would anyone take that guys side like you have? Its completely obvious he is not honest about anything.

    Yeah, because watching your qb get dragged through the mud for a year and a half and losing a first round pick for nothing, all because the league listened to a bunch of whiny losers and then couldn’t admit they screwed up basic science is wicked funny. On behalf of all pats fans we will try to find the humor in this like all of you would if it was your team.

  9. Pic of Goodell shown immediately after decision from 2nd Circuit, most premiere Appellate Circuit in the U.S. confirming that Shady Brady needs to be locked up for 4 games. Love it!!

  10. Twitter is stupid, just as Instagram with the hash tag/pound sign garbage.

    Its serves no useful purpose.

    No. Just … no.

    -sigh- smh

    gates aside. He’s a HORRIBLE commissioner. How he has 19 million twitter followers makes it even worse! Lemmings. All of them.

  12. By the way Commissioner Goodell has done more for charities (fundraising and awareness) than any other person in NFL or sports history.
    Thank You Commissioner Goodell for a heart of Gold!

    All the butt kissing in the world doesn’t change the fins going 6-10 or 15 years without a playoff win. And lest you forget Eli Manning is a Giant not a fish. It is a sad comment on the state of that fan base that they live for a regular season win and find their solace in the victories of others.
    Poor little guy

  14. Not much chance of that, considering hes a liar and fraud. I have a bigger question for you: Why on earth would anyone take that guys side like you have? Its completely obvious he is not honest about anything.

    I am not taking his side what I am doing is trying to get you Cheaties fans to lighten up and stop acting like spoiled little brats. Get over it. Brady may appear to be honest to you, but then you still believe in Santa so ….. Grab a snickers and stop embarrassing yourself….nobody cares outside of New England…..really!

  17. That picture depicts Roger laughing at all these fools that think he is in any danger of getting fired at any time in the near future..He has raised the NFL to a Money Making Monster and has the complete and utter support of the Owners of the NFL…..and laughs all the way to the bank EVERY SINGLE YEAR!

  18. Because we’re all supposed to believe Roger Goodell, the most least likable man whenever he speaks in a public forum, has that type of sense of humor.

  19. So all the six pack Joe’s and Louie bag of donuts out there don’t like the commissioner huh?
    Well, I’m sure he’s very concerned and has trouble sleeping over it. lolol

  20. Talk about cheating? How about the millions of dollars he promised for CTE research? He’s a serial liar!

    This is just too FUNNY – LMAO

  24. So great to see that others, along with the owners think goodell is good for the league. I am not alone….. the owners use him to take the shots for the decisions they make. Most of the haters are either ignorant or jealous.

    More likely it was right after that Malcolm Butler goal line interception in Super Bowl 49, and he realized his plan failed.

  26. Why did he leak erroneous PSI levels? Why did he lie about Tom’s testimony? Why did he lie about the Wells report being independent?
    Why did he lie about the Dolts balls being in compliance when they weren’t?
    Lots of questions, no answers.
    How anyone thinks this man has integrity is just crazy.

  27. he won’t be laughing when he has to take a federal stand for engineering a defamation exhibition against tom brady with harbaugh, pagano, grigson, etc.

    defrauding the consumer is illegal.

  28. Funny how Fan boy army thinks Roger runs the NFL. Maybe you should read the corporate charter and bylaws. Goodell is a tool of the 32 owners with limited discretion and they love him because he is growing profits by leaps and bounds. Goodell doesnt hater your team, he loves it! Makes him big BANK!!

    Yikes you got duped…
    1. Start with millions of biased fans of 31 teams that have watched Tom Brady and The Patriots become more successful than their teams since the year 2000 when Tom Brady was drafted.

    2. Count a significant percentage of those fans to be ignorant enough to permanently believe that a single incident from a single game played almost 10 years ago, where the camera needed to be moved to a different location within the stadium, represents a “pattern of cheating”

    3. Then further dupe most of those permanently gullible biased fans with an orchestrated media spin campaign that puts a false story which contradicts proven science in every media outlet in the country for 6 months before the 2 PSI information is corrected.

    4. Sprinkle in 56 deflategate lies told by the NFL to reinforce the smear campaign. Continue to deny science.

    5. Manipulate the system by picking a court in NY that you think will help you railroad Tom Brady. Lose because Jude Berman is competent. Double down on stupid and appeal the loss. Get two lazy judges that were apparently influenced by media headlines to rule in your favor. Cringe after the Chief federal judge actually understands the facts and issues a dissenting opinion that slams your case. Triple down on stupid and reinstate the penalty. Publically gloat on the eve of the 2015 draft because you actually won 2 to 1.

    6. Allow the Patriots to be cheated out of their 1st round pick in the 2016 draft and schedule them to be cheated out of a 4th round pick in 2017. Continue to try to make Tom Brady miss 25% of the season to help make some other teams feel more confident. Count on low information headline readers to continue to deny science and also believe that Tom Brady is hated while his jersey continues to be the top selling jersey of all the players in the NFL.

    7. Sit back and watch as too many biased gullible fans of the other 31 teams spew ridiculous hate – against one of the most successful QB’s of all time, who has been a model football player that has not been in any actual trouble with 16 years in the league. Understand that it’s easier to lie to people than to later convince them that they were lied to so the gullible masses will continue to deny science and believe lies.

    Plus wasn’t it just the opinion of the magazine and not an actual nation wide poll? And wasn’t the magazine “Forbes”? And wasn’t the headquarters of Forbes on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, NY before they moved it to Jersey City, NJ?

    I know that New York and New Jersey are not part of New England. My guess is that those 2 states are home to New York Jets fans. That team is a Patriot AFC rival. Facts likely won’t stop dupes from swallowing it just like they swallowed all the lies.

  31. When you notice any league official from referee to commissioner, they are screwing up badly. The goal should be for fans to focus on the game and the players. I don’t see the value in all the self importance in the NFL at the moment. They should be invisible.

    He makes money for the league because he has turned into a reality show. It’s intentional and it works, but it sucks for actual sports fans. Eventually the league revenues will dip and Roger will be blamed as much for that as he was praised for the increases and he will be canned. Until then it doesn’t matter what he does. As long as he finds another way to make the pie bigger, we are stuck with his smug face.

  34. I’d be looking at el presidente and his barstool hacks

    They have the biggest public sour on Goodell

    I think the joke is on the New England whine and cheese crew

  35. When is Robert Kraft gonna be told he’s got a kick me sign in the back of his blazer?

  36. When I substitute ‘autonomy’ for ‘integrity’ in anything Mr. Goodell says, then it all starts to make sense. From a dedicated Pats fan so…

  37. When I read the headline I thought it meant Twitter hack like some dude on Twitter making fun of him and he hit back. This is actually way less better than that. Damn it!

  38. Laughing? He looks like he needs to be disimpacted.
    Might as well, he’s full of it.

  39. The only people that hate Goodell are hardcore fans that live and breath football and wish 70’s football were back.
    For the regular Johnny fan like myself he is just another commissiener that is doing a good job making money for the league.

    ================================
    Sure this site would slam him. Because just as the NFL donated $30 million for CTE studies and asked for much of it back, Goodell would do the same thing with the $10 million.

  41. The hack was actually a marketing scheme with Netflix to promote that new Sandler movie, The Do-Over, where he faked his own death. Google it.

  42. It’s funny reading the comments from pats fans on this site. They all say goodell is a pathological liar.
    Then he must have been a liar when he was the ONLY person that was allowed to watch the tapes where the Pats recorded SB practices of the Rams, Panthers & Eagles. Then he destroyed them bc “there was nothing to see”. Instead of showing them to the public.
    So Pats fans was he a liar then? Or is he a liar in the Brady case? Either way the rings the Pats “earned” are tainted.

  43. weepingjebus says:Jun 7, 2016 6:48 PM

    Soon he can golf 365 days a year.

    Soon? Doubtful, he is a mouth piece for the owners and not one…including Bobby Kraft…has ever said anything about Roger going anywhere.

  44. Why are Pats fans so against Roger Goodell. Your boy Robert Kraft was a big factor in giving him his power from the CBA he helped pass. Follow the money Pats fans.

    common misconception that this “power” is new in the last CBA. It’s not new, same as it’s been since the 70’s. The only part that is new is the blatant abuse of said power.

    It is true (unfortunately) that Kraft helped the bozo get the job.

    And you have to ask why we don’t like him? We hear evry day that Brady is a liar and cheater. Well look at Goodell’s track record…How many judges have basically called him a liar? Me personally, I don’t care for anyone that plays me for a fool, Goodell plays us all for fools. Mostly because, in all honesty most people are fools lol This guy flat out lies pretty much every time he opens his mouth and that is well documented. Why are we so against him?Seriously?

  46. They blew it, they should have sent out a tweet saying that Brady’s suspension has been dropped and he will play all 16 games.

  47. Then he must have been a liar when he was the ONLY person that was allowed to watch the tapes where the Pats recorded SB practices of the Rams, Panthers & Eagles.

    Not even worth arguing with someone who knows what they say to be false. Been corrected so many times but you don’t care cause, like Goodell, you, sir, are a liar. National media watched the GAME tapes for hours. And their were no SB practice tapes. But again, you knew that

    __________________________________
    You’re confusing 2 different stories. First, there was no taping of any SB practices. That was proven to be an outright lie. The reporter. John Tomasse, and his newspaper, issued a full front page apology. ESPN apologized to the Patriots twice for spreading those same lies.

    The tapes that were destroyed were from Spygate. Taping defensive signals has never been illegal. It was simply the location of the camera that was the issue. NOT the fact that they were taping. In fact, NE was actually following the rules to the letter. Don’t forget, these games are seen by millions on TV and 70K more in the stands. What mysteries do you really think could have been on those tapes?

    Again, Spygate was about LOCATION only. You may now go back to sleep for the NEXT 20 years, Mr. Van Winkle, just as you must have been for the last 20.
