Eugene McGee: Cork clash will show whether Kildare are genuine All-Ireland contenders
Kildare and Sligo are poles apart, based on the result of their game on Saturday night. In all the key aspects of the game, Kildare were superior and many of Sligo's efforts to match them were little more than token gestures.
Sligo rarely looked like a team that believed they could actually win the game. Of course, they had guts and were playing for the honour of their county -- but Kildare were so superior that it was a fruitless exercise.
People who were not at this game, therefore, might be regarding the Kildare performance as All-Ireland class, but football is not as simple as that.
