Ben Affleck rants about Deflategate on new HBO show 'Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons'

Ben Affleck has some strong feelings—and definitely a few NSFW words—about Deflategate and Roger Goodell.

Ben Affleck appeared on the new HBO show Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons, and he didn’t hold anything back.

Affleck went on a profanity-laced rant about how the NFL has handled Deflategate, and it made for some quality entertainment. The Boston native called the entire situation an “outrage,” and he believes that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is running a “smear campaign” against Tom Brady. He then goes on to question Goodell’s integrity, and suggests that the NFL should focus on more significant issues such as domestic violence and steroid use.

It’s important to note that both Affleck and Simmons are avid Boston sports fans, so this is the perspective that you’d expect when they’re discussing their hometown Patriots.

Some people believe that Affleck was drunk, while others just say he was just passionately discussing his favorite team. Either way, I think everyone can agree that Deflategate has gone on for far too long.
