Joe Brolly joins Will Slattery to discuss the professional commitments that inter-county players are dedicating themselves to in the pursuit of their GAA careers.

On this week's episode of Throw-In, Independent.ie GAA podcast in association with Allianz, the 1993 All-Ireland winner questions its long-terms effects and consequences especially for the club and communities, 'the bonds of community are weakening'.
