Kerry could hand Louth an awful hiding.

Apart from Cavan v Galway they all look one sided games on paper. No odds on minor anymore but i can imagine Kerry v Dublin All Ireland final would be the shortest odds.

No apart needed.

How do you know that? Have you seen cavan play? You may be right by accident but you don't, yet again, have a clue what you are talking about

Kerry 1-11 Louth 1-5 at half time.  Kerry lead 1-7 to 0-1 after 15 mins and 1-11 to 0-4 after 29 min but Louth finished the half with a flourish of 1-2 without reply.

Galway v Cavan and Sligo v Derry starting at 2pm.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Kerry 1-22 Louth 2-9 FT Fairly routine win for Kerry.

Galway 0-6 Cavan 0-5 HT  by all accounts a very defensive contest

Sligo 0-10 Derry 0-6 HT Fine 1st half performance from the Connacht runners up against the Ulster champions.

Derry never seem to learn, they talk about how there is hope for the county yet, lets take a look at the records.

2002 - All Ireland minor champions  (seniors have only been in 1 AI semi final since)

2007 - All Ireland minor finalists  (seniors haven't made it to an AI QF since)

Youth football needs to be taken with a pinch of salt and not used as a prediction for the future.

Sligo have a reasonable team with a few potentially outstanding players. Minors are hard to judge but teams that get the opportunity to train on through June & July often improve beyond all that was expected of them.
