The NFL’s Twitter account was hacked on Tuesday afternoon, and it was “reported” that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had died.
He didn’t, though. It didn’t take long for news to surface that the commish was alive and well, and that the league’s account had been hacked.
Goodell was supposedly playing golf with HOF quarterback Jim Kelly at the time, so the news of him passing away came as quite a shock to him. He did his best to inject some humor into the odd situation.

Goodell remains one of the biggest villains in all of sports, and continues to embrace it.
