                                      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.  What's with JOHN DERE?  He 
actually beat SERPENTS HOLD 114's MORA, and walked away with 14 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at PUNNY AMINALS while they watched JOHN DERE clobber MORA.  
It lost 9 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently 
WILLAF isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded 
Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  Another fighter (GOLDPLATED 23-12-0) 
challenged another Duelmaster (SNAKE 13-5-0).  Life goes on.  I can barely restrain 
my enthusiam for GOLDEN GLADIATORS' outstanding member, Duelmaster GOLDPLATED.  I 
suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  WILLAF thinks SERPENTS 
HOLD 114 and their 51-54-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at GOLDEN GLADIATORS ain't reelin'!  SERPENTS 
HOLD 114's mad!  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that 
SLIDE TO HELL gets in.  He fights people like DEE NILE, 10 points below.  I thought 
SLIDE TO HELL showed great skill and promise when he defeated DEE NILE.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Black Indekker -- Now, now.  I wouldn't be Midas without a lot of gold, and I
wouldn't have a lot of gold if I began giving it away. -- Midas (the stingy)

Tulane Rhoades -- I certainly enjoyed passing you by.  What exit were you, now? --
Gold Dubloon

Mora -- You were a little hard to find slithering around in the arena mud, but I just
let you hiss and slither out. -- Goldplated
P.S.  Perhaps you are next, Snake?

Derron -- Well, I gave it a try, even though I was pretty sure you out-endurred me.
BOBbies are quite willful brats, I hear. -- Golden Flash

Fratsfa Slave -- Thanks for filling in.  Thanks for the win.  I will see if I can
talk to someone about your freedom.  What the heck!? -- Golden Globe

     Are you willing to step into his place?

Hori Bull -- Uh, yeah, maybe you are? -- Heart Of Gold

Khisanth and Snake -- Thanks for the blank and very revealing DM Column.  Written
like a true lazy BOBbie.  We think we learned everything you know from the column.
Kudos! -- Midas and The Golden Gladiators

Shadowmongers -- It was not our intention to lean so heavily on you!  We advise you
to challenge, avoid, control your match-ups.  Ask for help. -- the Punny Aminals

Slide to Hell -- No!  That was NOT what happened.  It was NOT. -- Dee Nile

Heart of Gold -- Why'd you want to go and mess up your perfect record that way? --
Hori Bull
P.S.  Not to mention what you did to mine.

Snake -- You're so impetuous.  Over in an instant.  Couldn't we draw it out longer?
-- John Dere

Gold Dubloon -- I don't CARE if they're gold, when you throw those things around
here, that's LITTERING. -- Tulane Rhoades, sweeping away the glittery gravel

Daybreaker -- We were certainly a pair out there.  My aim is terrible, and I was not
going for a kill, despite how it looks.  When things reach a certain point in a
fight, it just gets away from everyone. -- Black Indekker
