                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of WILLAF!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too 
little dodging gave PUNNY AMINALS a 1-4-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  It seems 
so recently people were saying REALLY? was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them 
up 1.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with TRICILLIAD?  He actually beat 
PUNNY AMINALS' HORUS MANN, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at MAXIMUM RESULTS while they watched TRICILLIAD clobber HORUS MANN.  
He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS' hatred of EMOTIONAL PANTS surfaced again as GOLD CHARM challenged 
WILLAF's top dog.  I'm sure WILLAF is excited about GOLD CHARM, the new Duelmaster 
from GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
MAXIMUM RESULTS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at GOLDEN GLADIATORS ain't 
reelin'!  MAXIMUM RESULTS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, JOHN DERE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     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!  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Congrats to Longing Leggings our emotional Duelmaster.  Well done! -- Midas

Dee Nile -- I don't know about that!  I am pretty happy at the moment.  Perhaps you
are in denile?  It was fun, and I really, really enjoyed the win. -- Gold Charm

Hey!  I took a chance and matched up with Chance, and , by chance, I waxed him.  That
Serpent may have hissed, but he missed, and I was golden. -- Good As Gold

Tricilliad -- Thanks for the challenge.  You gave it a shot, but I was lucky, lucky,
lucky.  Yours in gold.... -- Goldplated

Allow me to introduce Gold Futures, who makes his debute this round.  Treat him
gently and let him grow. -- Midas

Really??  Welcome.  And very well done for a start.  May you enjoy and prosper in
Willaf. -- Midas, Golden Gladiators

Lorel -- If your victory was luck, then I must be better than I realized.  This is
good news!  I think. -- Tulane Rhoades

Longing Leggings -- Young woman, that was unbecoming of you.  Given our relative ages
and genders, a little respect would have been reasonable. -- Horus Mann

Gold Charm -- I quite like gold, you know, especially in jewelry.  I'm sure someone
should give me some.  How about you? -- Dee Nile
P.S.  Although four skills is very good.  Thank you.

Lonely Handmedowns -- It won't help your loneliness if every time someone comes near
you, you go for the throat.  That kind of thing puts people off. -- Ripley Byrd

Galen -- Dear boy, I did the best I could for you.  A fast fight is always best. --
John Dere
