As Call of Duty esports fans watched the LA Thieves vs Florida Mutineers match in the upper bracket of the CDL Stage 3 Major, a comment from 100 Thieves CEO Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag on Twitter received quite a lot of traction. During the match, in which LA Thieves ended up losing 3-1, Nadeshot commented that his team was "throwing", and this isn't really something an owner should say while a match is still going on.
LA Thieves "throwing" at CDL Stage 3 Major?
The term "throwing" means a team is either purposefully losing a match, or alternatively, a team is losing a match they shouldn't by making out-of-character mistakes.
While Nadeshot clearly meant the latter, the 100 Thieves and LA Thieves owner took to Twitter to throw a comment out there...while the match was still going on, and LA Thieves still had a chance of beating Florida Mutineers.

Following the comment of "Man, we are throwing. So many small mistakes", Nadeshot followed up shortly afterwards by explaining why he made this comment during a CDL Stage 3 Major match.
Nadeshot explains his "throwing" comment: "This tweet was a little out of pocket as an owner of the team mid-series. It’s hard to balance in my own head as a former player watching these matches, I get a little too competitive. I’m off Call of Duty Twitter until the end of the major."
Nadeshot clearly didn't mean anything bad by the "throwing" comment and it appears to have been a spur-of-the-moment tweet as his team, LA Thieves was losing against Florida Mutineers.
The Florida Mutineers owner, Ben Spoont, also responded to the tweet.

It appears Nadeshot won't make the same type of comment during a match again, as he plans to stay off Call of Duty Twitter until the end of the CDL Stage 3 Major.
