Whoa, this is SO scary. The official NFL account tweeted the devastating news that commissioner Roger Goodell was dead… and now football fans are totally losing it. But is it even true?
Roger Goodell, 57, may not be a household name, but he happens to be a very important piece of the National Football League. Unfortunately, his name was used to rile up some football fans on social media and it totally worked.

Spoiler alert: Roger Goodell is alive! It turns out that the NFL account was hacked, much like Kylie Jenner and Katy Perry before them, and thankfully the commissioner is totally fine. Football fans, on the other hand, could be better.
While many fans on Twitter were shocked to learn that Roger had “died” at the young age of 57, others were a little more upset to find out he was still alive. It’s been a rough year for the NFL, especially because of Tom Brady‘s Deflategate, so fans have more or less turned on the commissioner of their favorite sport.
When you check out the tweets below, you’ll notice that lots of fans are cracking jokes at Roger’s expense — and some are even claiming to be pretty bummed he’s still alive. That’s way harsh, guys and girls!
Read through some of the hilarious tweets below and remember, Roger is totally still alive!
