Max's conduct in the weigh in room was definitely inexcusable, but let's not make a mountain out of a molehill, it was aggressive but wasn't violent, nor was it an attempt to cause harm, it was essentially someone trying to exert dominance on another. Max probably knows inside himself that he shoul...
