                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TRANSEL.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Ya gotta be quick on yer 
feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the pain!  MACHINES OF WAR 
is now ranked 2nd with a 3-2-0 turn.  What's with CAMDEN?  He actually beat ARIZONA's 
PHOENIX, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
BALTO while they watched CAMDEN clobber PHOENIX.  He lost 15 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to 
XENORIA, BUT HOFFA is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition 
points!  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.  
TRANSEL thinks DARK PANTHEON and their 504-371-35 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 504-368-35 would scare me off!  What's 
the problem, ARIZONA?  What do people see in FORLORN?  His 5-5-1?  DARK PANTHEON 
ain't talkin', but he's got 38 points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
