                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TOBIR once again!  Woof!  ALL THE MUN'S MEN were a bunch of dogs 
after OTAGO HIGHLANDERS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  It seems 
so recently people were saying THE DEATH SQUAD was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 
moved them up 0.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with ZERO THE HERO?  He 
actually beat OTAGO HIGHLANDERS' ABBOTT, and walked away with 20 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at OTAGO HIGHLANDERS.  ABBOTT lost 15 points to ZERO THE HERO.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ABBOTT will provide more easy wins...  KUNG-FU 
MASTER was reminded on the sands why HYDE is Duelmaster.  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, THE DEATH SQUAD!  The bums at I BENT MY WOOKIE couldn't face the challenges 
from THE DEATH SQUAD!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the 
most challenged warrior, MOLYNEUX!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.  Taunt your opponent MOLYNEUX!  That was my lucky charm when I was 
unfairly challenged.  (and by 25 points!)  I ATE MY WORM should have an easy win.  I 
have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, I ATE MY WORM!  He can't set himself 
up in a real match.  I was sorry to see MOLYNEUX lose.   
     Warriors of TOBIR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  PUSSYFOOT larned 
his lesson (ANGRY SHEW taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight 
any THE DEATH SQUAD members with the same gusto.  Here's some advice:  study your 
opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
