                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome RIZTAB.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  BLUE NOTE showed RIZTAB 
what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 3-1-1.  
What's with ART BLAKEY?  He actually beat RIZTAB's SHORT PETER, and walked away with 
16 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at BLUE NOTE.  WALLER lost 12 points to 
GHOST.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe WALLER will provide more easy wins...  I 
can barely restrain my enthusiam for IMPORTANT's outstanding member, Duelmaster 
SCIENCE.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was BLUE NOTE.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at F IS FOR FROG ain't 
reelin'!  BLUE NOTE's mad!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, if DA2 can 
return from the Dark Arena.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger 
every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
RIZTAB is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
