It’s a mini-sode, but it’s chock full of funny stuff.

Plus, Marvel and Netflix throw down their Punisher gauntlet in the face of DC and Justice League, and a conversation about the Black Panther trailer gets intense. T2J: Now with three times the dirty old man stories!
Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan can’t seem to make up his mind about President Trump, and the Jerks are talking about it. Plus, some major upsets in college football, and some smack talk from the #LeagueOfJerks. We’re also taking a close look at all the big movie and TV trailers from the past week, including Justice League, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, The New Mutants, and the new season of Stranger Things. Those Two Jerks: We’re only doing this to try and get McDonald’s to bring back the Arch Deluxe!
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is hinting about expansion (and shortening the season?!), and the Jerks are talking about it!

T2J – Just when we thought we were done talking about current events, they pulled us back in!
The Jerks continue the discussion of #TakeAKnee and #IStand, and look at its possible expansion into the NHL, the FBI’s investigation into corruption in college basketball, and give you a #LeagueOfJerks update with a visit from an inanimate object!

The Jerks discuss this week’s national anthem protests in the NFL and the controversy surrounding #TakeAKnee. Plus, the results of research into Aaron Hernandez’s brain, a fantasy football update, and our takes on the Watchmen pilot for HBO, Jesse Eisenberg being left out (or cut out?) of Justice League, and James Cameron’s return to the Terminator franchise. T2J – somewhere between kneeling during the anthem and a Barry Manilow song on the controversy scale!
It’s here, at last! Ric does a blow-by-blow recap of Mayweather vs. McGregor, we break down the Kyrie Irving trade, and sort through all of the HUGE DC Comics movie news (Scorsese and Phillips doing a Joker movie?!). Plus, why Pandora: The World of Avatar pisses Tom off. T2J: Still waiting for the Robert Zemeckis-helmed Booster Gold movie starring Channing Tatum!
