It’s our first regular episode of 2018! We’re talking about UCF’s claim to college football’s national championship and the broken Power 5 Invitational Playoff — er, College Football Playoff — system, plus the Oakland Raiders playing fast and loose with the Rooney Rule in their hiring of Jon Gruden, and the promised shakeup at Warner Bros. happens with regard to the DC Comics movies. T2J in 2018: What did you think was going to happen?
The Jerks discuss a busy week in both the worlds of sports and pop culture, from the Houston Texans players squaring off with their team’s owner, to Yuli Gurriel’s racial slur at the World Series and the 49ers asking fans if they care whether the team wins. Plus, why Tom thinks Zachary Levi will be great as DC’s Shazam!, whether the Deathstroke movie will actually get made and our thoughts on a TON of proposed Hollywood franchises and reboots, from Contra to Ace Ventura and Major League. T2J — it’s so full of comedy, you’ll get indigestion!
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!
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!
We’re back, and we’re intact after surviving Hurricane Irma! The Jerks rundown why Jerry Jones could be engineering the end of Roger Goodell’s run as NFL Commissioner, Ric cries about the Vikings (already), and the latest on the League of Jerks fantasy football league. Plus, another Star Wars director is out, Disney is all in on its streaming service, and could review embargoes signal bad things for Star Trek: Discovery? It’s all here, wrapped in one lovely, handcrafted digital package!
Draft Day has arrived! The first-ever League of Jerks Fantasy Football Draft has taken place, and the Jerks were there (natch) for all the action and analysis. Find out how many rules needed to be explained to Chris, and hear smack talk from the other owners in the league. T2J: Esoteric, but brief!
