Roger Goodell is not dead.
The NFL's official twitter account was hacked today and I'm no detective but I wouldn't be surprised if it were a New England Patriots fan that was behind the job.
The perpetrator announced to all of the @NFL's 19.2 million followers that the league's commissioner, Roger Goodell, had passed away at the age of 57. NFL insider, Adam Schefter, quickly assured everyone that it was all a hoax and that Goodell was alive and well, working away.
With Tom Brady once again due to serve a 4-game suspension at the start of the season (see: Deflategate), it wouldn't surprise anyone if this was the work of a die hard Pats fan.
Or perhaps the mastermind, Bill Belichick himself?
