                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  It seems so recently people were 
saying DRAGONS CLAW was washed up, finished.  But 5-0-1 moved them up 0.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  What's with CHUCKO?  He actually beat TMM KNOCKOFFS' FLUKY 
FRINDING, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at SOUL 
WARRIORS.  OTOAHHASTIS lost 14 points to CAPTAIN JUNKIE.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe OTOAHHASTIS will provide more easy wins...  SKILLET LIBEL was 
reminded on the sands why INCEST is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was SOUL WARRIORS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at 
UNLIKELY HEROES ain't reelin'!  SOUL WARRIORS' mad!  What do people see in HEGIRA?  
His 7-6-0?  SOUL WARRIORS ain't talkin', but he's got 63 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  STARCHY PANDERING of TMM KNOCKOFFS got 22 points for removing 
another young punk.  Tough luck, SOUL WARRIORS!  Here's some advice:  study your 
opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen
