Watch: Ben Affleck Goes Ballistic Over ‘Deflate-Gate’


On Wednesday, Bill Simmons debuted his new HBO show “Any Given Wednesday.”

The former ESPN personality welcomed actor Ben Affleck, and the two discussed the New England Patriots and “Deflate-gate.”

Affleck called the investigation a “smear campaign” against Patriots quarterback Tom Brady since Brady did not cooperate by turning over his cell phone.

“Maybe it’s that 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.”

“I talk to f–ing football players, pro football players — across the board they think it’s bullsh-t,” Affleck later added.
