On the latest episode of The Throw-In, Joe Brolly gives his assessment of year one of the Super 8s.

Brolly thinks that the format highlights the negativity in Gaelic football today and that tweaks are required to help the sport going forward.

Of the teams who have made it through to the semi-finals, Brolly gives Tyrone the best chance of ending Dublin’s four in-a-row bid - but only if they become more adventurous.

Joe also weighs in on the end of Eamonn Fitzmaurice’s tenure with Kerry and says that it was time for a change in the Kingdom.
