                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  WILLAF needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for TULANE 
RHOADES?  PUNNY AMINALS' proud of him after beating GOLD DUBLOON and getting 26 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  BLACK INDEKKER got smashed by MOONSINGER, 
and lost 10 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think SLIDE 
TO HELL should let JOHN DERE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  
Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  SERPENTS HOLD 114 was WILLAF's 
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
SERPENTS HOLD 114, that's fer sher.  Like, is DEE NILE popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of WILLAF!  She's got a 19-24-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  MOONSINGER bloodfeuded (is that a word?) BLACK INDEKKER for revenge over 
some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Slide To Hell -- Duelmaster and 9-0!?  Well done, sandbagger. -- Midas and The Golden
Gladiators
P.S.  Let's see if you abdicate.

All -- I wanted Snake.  I knew the slithering coward wouldn't fight, so I sat out
also.  Dindleberry! -- Goldplated

Hori Bull -- I guess to you, those results were horrible.  To me, they were golden.
-- Golden Flash

Everbringer -- I was amazingly lucky in that fight.  I'll bet we are quite evenly
matched.  Salute. -- Golden Globe

Moonsinger -- Two in a row!  After a nasty start things just might be coming together
for me. -- Heart Of Gold

Tulane Rhoades -- The boss's favorite barber, in the old days, was a guy named Mousy
Rhoades.  As a high school football player a few years before the boss, he was known
as Torpedo.  Wish I knew his real first name.  Harold, I think. -- Gold Dubloon

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  (and anything gold) -- Midas

Gold Dubloon -- Well, you COULD say it, but I don't see why you would. -- Tulane
Rhoades

Slide to Hell -- You are such a fetching little thing to look at, and so forceful,
besides!  A devastating combination. -- John Dere

Convicted Assassin?  Pooh!  I deny that he had the slightest chance against me. --
Dee Nile

Gold Dubloon -- More like a skimpy piece of eight, if you ask ME. -- Tulane Rhoades

Nightstalker -- I know something about darkness. -- Black Indekker

Golden Flash -- I didn't even know the fight was happening, because this damned
bright light kept flashing in my eyes! -- Hori Bull
