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! Plus, Warner Bros. plays it loose when it comes to DC movie continuity, a discussion of Star Trek: Discovery, and why reality itself makes Ric upset. T2J: All the news that doesn’t really matter, plus some that does!
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!
