I have seen that video a million times. And from what I saw that old man was running his damn mouth to Conor. I go by the motto "Don't start none, there won't be none."
I think if you run your mouth, get ready for the consequences.
There was absolutely nothing wrong with what Conor did. In fact, he went soft on him. Had that old man mouthed off to me, he would have been spitting out his teeth like Chiclets.
