                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TRANSEL once again!  A team with purpose!  A team with the skill 
to back up their boasts!  Getting a 3-1-0 their first time out is RAPTOR.  What's 
with EAGLET?  She actually beat SWIM SQUAD's FREESTYLE, and walked away with 21 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at RAPTOR while they watched EAGLET clobber 
FREESTYLE.  He lost 6 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
Try as he might, BREASTSTROKE wasn't good enough at persuading DOMINO to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  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 SWIM SQUAD.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at RAPTOR 
ain't reelin'!  SWIM SQUAD's mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
