After re-reading it I get what is your point:
“The fact that’s Skadoodle played the game labels him as a thrower, as he didn’t made any big action to stop it”
Well, in the end, they were friends, he wouldn’t just cheat on them and be mole. He just played ha game normally and refused to get skins. The fact is, they were punished more for the thought of throwing that the throw as a act. It’s very confuse to explain so I won’t lose my time much more.
