     Amythest, why am I still...?  Oh, you graduated.  Well, have a good trip.

                                      Chauncy

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome WILLAF.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  WYLDERNESS WYLD were 
a bunch of dogs after PUNNY AMINALS got through with 'em!  5th ain't so sweet as 1st! 
Hmmmph!  I always thought WYLDERNESS WYLD was an over-rated team and they proved it 
with a 0-0-0!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  
Thrust!  Block out the pain!  JLG is now ranked 3rd with a 3-2-0 turn.  Some people 
say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  
Well PUNNY AMINALS moved up 1, to 1st.  What's with 400S?  It actually beat PUNNY 
AMINALS' DUNROE MINH, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Laughs 
were big at JLG while they watched 400S clobber DUNROE MINH.  He lost 14 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, BEAUFORT wasn't 
good enough at persuading CHAUNCY to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was ROSE NOBLES.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at NOBLE 
ON FIRE ain't reelin'!  ROSE NOBLES' mad!  What do people see in SCROPE?  His 2-3-0?  
ROSE NOBLES ain't talkin', but he's got 11 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
