                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of MORYA!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too 
little dodging gave DIZNEE a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Up 'n down.  Up 
'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, SEA 
DOGS' 10th moved them up to 1-0-0 place.  What's with GIDREK THUMBTOE?  He actually 
beat OTTO'S MECHANICS' VAL VALINE, and walked away with 21 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at MORYA while they watched KUNG-FU MASTER clobber THE FIXER. 
He lost 32 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  GRAVITY was 
reminded on the sands why ANGRY MOMENTUM is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  MORYA 
thinks FORCE OF FIVE and their 83-71-7 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, 
give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BASH BROS BODY ain't reelin'!  
FORCE OF FIVE's mad!  Maybe SEA DOGS' FREEBOOTER is one of those guys who likes pain, 
or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 42 to THE 
HIEROPHANT.  FREEBOOTER did pretty good last week in beating THE HIEROPHANT to get 23 
points.  Why did THE HIEROPHANT lose, you ask?  Simple:  he wasn't good enough.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
