This is not an act of treason, it's an act of love. Kildare have a problem with their kicking and it needs to be addressed.

The perception from their supporters is that they make poor decisions at key moments, kick from bad angles and are prone to the yips.

It's not a new thing. It happened under Micko the first time and even sometimes during the second spin around, it happened under Dermot Earley Snr, Padraig Nolan suffered the same thing and it blighted the great team that McGeeney built.
