Bill Simmons’ Any Given Wednesday debuted on Wednesday with a tirade about Deflategate from New England Patriots’ superfan Ben Affleck.

“Deflategate is the ultimate bullshit fucking outrage of sports ever,” Affleck told Simmons. “It’s so fucking stupid that I can’t believe it.”

“They gave [Brady] a suspension for a quarter of the regular season, which would be the equivalent of suspending a baseball player for 40 fucking days … which is what they do when you get busted for taking steroids. And by the way, if the NFL really knew how to test for steroids, there’d be no fucking NFL!” said Affleck.

He was so animated that Simmons could barely get a word in. The actor suggested that Brady’s suspension was a “smear campaign” started by “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.”
