Ben Affleck Goes On Profanity-Laced Deflategate Rant On Bill Simmons' HBO Show

New England native Ben Affleck goes off on a profanity-laced rant about Tom Brady and Deflategate on Bill Simmons’ HBO series, 'Any Given Wednesday'.

"Deflategate is the ultimate bullshit f***ing outrage of sports ever," Affleck began. "It's so f***ing stupid that I can't believe it."

"They gave Brady a suspension for a quarter of the season, which would be equivalent of suspending a baseball player for 40 f***ing days — which is what they do when you get busted taking steroids. And by the way, if the NFL really knew how to test for steroids and HGH, there'd be no f***ing NFL."

"So instead, what they did was suspend Tom Brady for four days for not giving them his f***ing cell phone and for having a friend who called himself the deflator. If I got in trouble for all the things that my friends called themselves, I would be finished."

"You want to give a guy — because he doesn't give you his cell phone - a punishment? I would never give an organization as leak-prone as the NFL my f***ing cell phone so you can just look through my emails and listen to my voicemails. The first thing they're going to do is leak this shit."

"I don't know. Maybe it's funny, lovely sex messages from his wife," he said. "Maybe Tom Brady is so f—ing classy and such a f***ing gentleman that he doesn't want people to know that he may have reflected on his real opinion of some of his co-workers — guys he plays with, guys he plays against."

"I wouldn't want guys who I didn't think were very good to know I didn't think they were very good. I wouldn't want guys who I thought were great to know I thought they were great. I'd want to keep my opinions to myself."

Affleck said, to him, Deflategate is just the rivals way of getting revenge on Brady.

"This is a conspiracy of people working inside the NFL who all come from organizations that Tom Brady whipped their ass over the last 10 or 15 years."

"So there's guys who work for the f***ing Jets and Broncos and everybody else who are now going, like, 'Get him! Hang him!' because they have some slight, flimsy f***ing pretense."
