Ben Affleck Doesn't Hold Back About Deflategate - NSFW!

If you're like me, once you get by staring at Ben Affleck's swollen face (which is likely a result of healing from suspected plastic surgery), you realize that what he's actually saying about Deflategate (through the acceptable profanities considering the subject), is RIGHT ON.

Here, a very heated Ben, one of our most beloved Boston actors and sports fans, was the featured guest on Bill Simmons’ new HBO show, “Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons,” which premiered earlier this week.

Bill Simmons, the former Boston Herald sports reporter asked Ben if Deflategate was the “ultimate Boston sports story that ever could have happened,” the actor launched into an amazingly expletive-fueled rant in defense of Tom Brady and handed it to the NFL.

 

Simmons was suspended from ESPN — his previous employer — in September 2014 for calling Roger Goodell a “liar” (Jeez, really? Then maybe all sports stations should be handing out suspensions, 'cause he ain't the only one with such words for Goodell) during a podcast on the league’s investigation of Ray Rice and a video that surfaced of him beating his fiance in an elevator. Simmons was then fired in May 2015 from ESPN, right after Bill said that Goodell “doesn’t have the testicular fortitude to do anything until he gauges the public reaction.” (talking about Deflategate).

Which worries me not only as a Patriots fan, media type and American citizen.  It is the complete abuse of power and the disgusting reality of the grotesque unfairness and entitlement that lives prominently in the NFL.

Keep digging and talking Bill Simmons, if your remarks don't make a difference in how the NFL is run your words at least make a difference to us fans.  Thank you both for speaking up.  Never stop speaking up.
