Ben Affleck unleashes an epic rant about Deflategate

Bill Simmons' new HBO show, "Any Given Wednesday," got off to a raucous and entertaining start this week, unless you are one of the people who are sick and tired of the Deflategate scandal.

Simmons' second guest on the debut episode was fellow Bostonian Ben Affleck, and it didn't take long for nouveau Batman to morph into Chuckie Sullivan of "Good Will Hunting" when Simmons baited him with every Bostonian's favorite subject: Deflategate and the NFL's alleged conspiracy to ruin the reputation of one of its greatest assets, Tom Brady.

Among the highlights:

"Deflategate is the ultimate bulls--- f---ing outrage of sports ever. It's so f---ing stupid."

"What they did was suspend Tom Brady for four [games] for not giving them his f---ing cellphone and for having a friend who called himself 'The Deflator.' If I got in trouble for all the things my friends called themselves, I would be finished!"

"I would never give an organization as leak-prone as the NFL my f---ing cellphone, so you can just look through my emails and listen to my voicemails? ... So the first thing they are going to do is leak this s---."

"It's a f---ing ridiculous smear campaign."

"We haven't done anything to address this crisis in domestic violence in the NFL, but the f---ing football better not be 8% lighter, and if we find out it is, you're gone for four games!"

Here is the rant, which lasts close to five minutes. [WARNING: We lost count of the number of F-bombs dropped by Affleck. He's fired up. Oh man, is he fired up.]
