                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for HOUND ARCHON, who 
flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing CHI HO like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  CHI HO was 
bested by HOUND ARCHON and drops 18 points.  Try as hard as the CRITICALS stable 
might, they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) MURDEROUS THRUST 
before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, THE HAPPY F took the 
Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that APOKOLIPS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of APOKOLIPS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who 
like math, try this one:  APOKOLIPS + Weapons That go Boom = YOKAI + Avoid City.  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, MEADOWLARK would be president.  
Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the JADE MOUNTAIN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

than Lord Scorpio, himself (tossing a wink at Jorja and her Sand Dancers stable)

Four-one, this is quite good.  A classic turn-around, and not requiring eating worms
at all.  Two wins over standbys, but so what?  If the Commission didn't want us to
fight standbys, they shouldn't have HIRED any. -- Stonefall
