                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in WILLAF since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
POWER LEGION was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  Welcome to 
WILLAF, REALLY?!  We need more teams who can get a 4-1-1 their first time out!  
What's with I DON'T KNOW?  He actually beat WILLAF's MALCORN INSURGENT, and walked 
away with 14 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at EMOTIONAL PANTS while 
they watched LONELY HANDMEDOWNS clobber RIPLEY BYRD.  He lost 6 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  HORUS MANN was reminded on the sands 
why LONGING LEGGINGS is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was PUNNY AMINALS.  The bums at GOLDEN GLADIATORS couldn't face the challenges from 
PUNNY AMINALS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in GOLDPLATED?  Its 14-6-0?  
GOLDEN GLADIATORS ain't talkin', but it's got 67 points.   
     Warriors of WILLAF unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     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

Blind, blind, blind!  Goin' blind.  Willaf-wise, that is.  Haven't seen electronic or
snail results of the last round.  Heading for eight days away with no mail, no
internet.  Blind!  So these comments are what you get! -- Midas

Congrats to The Duelmaster, whoever you are. -- Midas

Happy Valentine Day.  Show the ones you love that you mean it! -- Midas

Don't kill us! -- Gold Charm, Good As Gold, Goldplated, Gold Dubloon, and a golden
newby (whoever it may be)

GoldPlated -- That's probably because you aren't the real thing.  Not SolidGold. --
Dee Nile

We salute the tourney participants, with a special congratulations for Misdiagnosis,
tourney victor in the Initiates.  Does this mean we can expect Assurnasirbanipal to
run here? -- Jorja and the Punny Aminals

Gold Locket -- A final win to see you out the door in style. -- Horus Mann

Tricilliad -- I could've sworn that there were three of you for a few seconds.  And
it hurts!  How can you be so mean to me? -- John Dere

Gold Charm -- But all that charm is ultimately superficial, you know.  It won't get
you true happiness. -- Dee Nile

Lashed by Leggings, Pummeled by Pants!  It's a hard life. -- Ripley Byrd

Silly Beggar. -- Tulane Rhoades
