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!
The MLB Playoffs begin (and end quickly, for the Yankees), the Miami Dolphins have a jerk (small ‘j’) for a QB, and no head coach, the NHL season began (and you probably didn’t even know), and an MMA fighter has an “accident” on the mat (you don’t want to skip that story). Plus, some cool viral marketing for Batman v. Superman, some more douche-like behavior from one of that movie’s stars, Marvel adjusting to what its fans want, and Avatar comics that no one asked for (maybe you did)! Those Two Jerks–The podcast no one asked for!

Lots of fours in this episode! Wrigley Field isn’t finished in time FOR Opening Day, rumors about the Eagles trading FOR Johnny Manziel, and it’s not much longer beFORE NBA games actually matter. Plus, we hope FOR Suicide Squad to be good, talk about how FOURking cool the Deadpool marketing is, give Marvel whatFOR about their “big” Avengers announcement, and try to figure out FOR what reason Ric is now trading virtual Star Wars cards! We don’t want to FORce you to listen, but if you don’t we’re going to keep making these FOUR references FORever.
