Replying To wexico15:  "The clip gone viral of the goal from the Clare football championship is brilliant:)

Why the hell did the keeper run out of the rectangle, leaving his goal unprotected. It's not as if he was creating a passing opportunity, he was a metre or two away from the right corner back when his team lost possession.

Replying To rhudson:  "In fairness I think the form Corofin were in on Sunday
They could have beaten most good senior clubs in the country
Oughterard were met by a Corofin storm that has blown away many a decent team
Hopefully Oughterard can recover from this experience"
Presumably Corofin will be all guns blazing in the Galway championship since there is no All Ireland club championship for them to target. In previous years they have been sluggish in the county championship and have had a few close shaves but with no All Ireland this year they can peak for the county championship.

No real surprises in Donegal over the weekend. Perhaps Glenfin beating an up-and-coming Killybegs away comfortably enough was the only result that raised a few eyebrows.

The big 4 - St Eunans, Gaoth Dobhair, Glenties & Kilcar all posted impressive victories. This weekend sees Eunans take on Kilcar in what should hopefully be a cracker. It's live on TG4. Kilcar have searing pace throughout but are maybe lacking a bit in the full back line. Eunans looked ominously good. They have a nice balance to the team and will take some stopping I feel.

You'll never know the answer.

Along with the answers to several other questions about that clip for that matter.

First thing I thought when I saw the corner back too
