                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JURINE once again!  Some people say I ramble too much, I don't 
say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well U PAY I SLAY 1 moved up 0, 
to 2nd.  What's with THUNDER SNOW?  He actually beat MEDAL OF HONOR G10's SERGEANT 4, 
and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at BATTLE FROGS 
01-14 while they watched THUNDER SNOW clobber SERGEANT 4.  He lost 16 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  See how the Duelmaster challenged 
MIDDLE WAY 16's JENNI KORREG?  That sort of initiative is how he got where he is now. 
Try as she might, JENNI KORREG wasn't good enough at persuading RACK OF LAB to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  What do people see in HANDY 
ILSONDER?  His 0-7-0?  MIDDLE WAY 16 ain't talkin', but he's got 10 points.  I hate 
going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that ROVERWURST gets in.  He 
fights people like HANDY ILSONDER, 14 points below.  I thought ROVERWURST showed 
great skill and promise when he beat HANDY ILSONDER.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  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.  
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
