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!
The Jerks discuss why HBO’s Hard Knocks can make you love and hate your team, the latest on national anthem protests in the NFL, and lighter gloves for the Mayweather-McGregor fight. Plus, Patty Jenkins’ fight to get equal pay to direct Wonder Woman 2, the Star Wars and Gremlins sequels in development, and why Ric hates sleep. T2J: As reliable as a cable TV repairman, but funnier!
It’s the Jerks’ second Jerk-i-versary, which we all know is the corruption anniversary. So, in keeping with that tradition, the Jerks talk about the NFL charging for paying tribute to the troops and the NCAA’s hypocrisy in the Larry Brown suspension. Plus, a preview of the MLB playoffs, and the latest on Suicide Squad (yay, Jared Leto!), Ghostbusters (boo, Sony!), and Star Wars “news” that isn’t really news! Those Two Jerks: It’s the Jerkiest!
