Ref had no option in Feeney 'black' moment

What on earth was Richie Feeney thinking?
The only valid criticism of the black card so far is that, on occasion, referees need to make a judgment call as to whether there's been a genuine or deliberate foul.
This can be a grey area when you consider a lot of referees don't have a real understanding of the game. The one foul that falls under the 'black' umbrella where there is no ambiguity whatsoever, is the 'deliberate body collide'.
What Feeney did was stupid. A county player should be leading by example, not getting sent off four minutes into an All-Ireland club final for a deliberate body check straight in front of the referee.
We had some fun on the show last week making up a mock AIB advertisement detailing my hard luck story in the All-Ireland club finals. It didn't take long for someone to outdo my story.
