                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KOLACT once again!  Biff!  Pow!  KOLACT watched with glee as 
VIKINGS got knocked off top spot by THIRSTY THUGS!  Some people say I ramble too 
much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well THIRSTY THUGS 
moved up 1, to 1st.  What's with PURPLE HOOTER?  He actually beat ABOMINATION's 2012, 
and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at THIRSTY THUGS 
while they watched PURPLE HOOTER clobber 2012.  She lost 18 points and got bruised 
from objects thrown from the stands.  What a role model for KOLACT's young 'uns!  
HILLARY becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure KOLACT is 
excited about SALTY DOG, the new Duelmaster from THIRSTY THUGS.  (remember?)  But 
when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  KOLACT thinks JAY-Z and 
their 128-126-8 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  Management 
must be dealin', as the boys at THE HOLY LEGION ain't reelin'!  JAY-Z's mad!  What do 
people see in HOGAN?  His 8-4-0?  FEARSOME FIVESOME ain't talkin', but he's got 66 
points.  FAT PAULIE of THE CLUB knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged 55 IN A 54 of 
JAY-Z who is up by 20.  Now was this a wise move?  FAT PAULIE perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he lost to 55 IN A 54 and ended up with 9 recognition points.   
     Warriors of KOLACT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  ADALBJORN larned 
his lesson (JHAARAN taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight 
any THE HOLY LEGION members with the same gusto.  Many a warrior has met his fate in 
a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

A little bit of both and neither, Nomad.  The not exactly well known and returned in
the last twelve months Dameon Darkheart (and I didn't go by any managerial name when
this team last ran).  Burying one of my two originals in the deep sands is not what I
call a pleasant welcome, though.  Please be kinder to my last remaining ancient! --
