Joe Brolly is back on the Throw-In to give his insights and perspectives on the state of the GAA.

This week he previews the National Football League, gives his verdict on the David Clifford hype and revels in the open style of Gaelic football espoused by Dublin and Mayo.

He also talks about Tyrone's need for a more attacking system - but he isn't sure if they can deliver it. Donegal's 'new' style of play, Aidan O'Shea and his hopes for Derry are also up for discussion.
