Saints News, 6/7/16: NFL Twitter Hacked; Claims Goodell Died

New, comment

Apparently a Saints' or Patriots' fan had some time on their hands on Tuesday, as the NFL's official Twitter was hacked. During the hack, the account bade farewell to the . . . polarizing figurehead of the NFL: Roger Goodell. The NFL is in damage control mode now, saying that Goodell is working hard today.
