Is NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Dead? Twitter Gets Hacked

Is Roger Goodell dead? That’s what NFL fans were asking after news was tweeted from the organisation’s Twitter account that the commissioner had passed away.

It’s shock news if true – with Goodell just 57 and appearing publicly only yesterday with no mention of ill health.

But it looks like some sort of hack after the tweet was deleted just minutes after being posted and garnering over 1,000 retweets:

This was added minutes after the tweet was deleted – confirming that it’s definitely a hack:

The account was inundated with responses from followers insisting it was a hack – and the guilty party were quick to admit the act, tweeting again:

So, that settles it. Roger Goodell definitely isn’t dead.

And if you don’t believe us, as well as all the evidence above, then the word of NFL inside Adam Schefter should do the trick:

Goodell appeared publicly as recently as yesterday as he attended the Jim Kelly golf tournament.

We’ll bring you updates as and when they happen from the NFL Twitter hack.

But, just to be clear, ROGER GOODELL IS NOT DEAD!
