I don't think we can blame Melanson for him being too short.

Furthermore, I don't think we can blame Melanson for Théo's personal problems. Blame Melanson for his family's betting and gambling ring? Blame Melanson for his legal dispute with his neighbor? Blame Melanson for his party lifestyle and his superstar persona that got to his head?
If you read my post (what was in brackets), you'd realize that I wasn't putting the entire blame on Melanson when it comes to Theodore. But saying that he wasn't part of it is putting your head in the sand.
