Ben Affleck appeared on Bill Simmons's new HBO sports show "Any Given Wednesday," and although he was able to discuss other matters calmly, when Simmons asked him about the Deflategate scandal, the Boston native went on an obscenity-laced tirade that kind of has to be seen to be believed.

While the rest of the nation would like to forget whatever it was Tom Brady did to those balls, the sting of injustice is clearly still fresh with Affleck, who called the scandal "the ultimate bullshit f*cking outrage of sports ever." EVER! Wow! 

Is Affleck an irrational Boston sports fan? Or was he telling it like it is?

Viewers noted the actor was slurring quite a bit—the heat of the moment, copious alcohol consumption, or both could have affected his statements. But his level of outrage and strange tangents about Tom Brady being "so f*cking classy and such a f*cking gentleman" looked and sounded completely unhinged (don't miss him accusing Roger Goodell of not having "tegrity" at 3:57). Many Patriots fans, however, applauded the actor for telling it straight and calling out the NFL for their ridiculous vendetta against Brady.

Is Ben Affleck completely out of his mind when it comes to Tom Brady and the Patriots? Or is he on to something?
