                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in WILLAF!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, PUNNY AMINALS had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by BLOOD ON THE TRACKS!  Way to go BLOOD 
ON THE TRACKS!  GOLDEN GLADIATORS like really fought hard to move up to 2nd from 5th. 
Way to go!  What was the name of that team who got 4-1-1 this turn for a total 
40-37-2 you ask?  (Sure)  AIMER'S INC's their name, and fighting's their game!  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  HORI BULL got smashed by GOLDEN GIRL, and lost 11 points! 
What a putz!  TEETER-SLAUGHTER fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting 
and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just getting used to 
the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 56TH AND WABASHA.  Aren't BLOOD 
ON THE TRACKS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of BLOOD ON THE TRACKS must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do 
you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS?  BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  Like, is BLACK INDEKKER popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of WILLAF!  He's got a 16-24-1, is that good?  People were 
asking me did GOLDEN FLASH REALLY challenge BLACK INDEKKER?  (all right, maybe they 
didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BLACK 
INDEKKER wants me to write about it since he was overcame by GOLDEN FLASH.  
Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Everyone has problems, but why did BLOOD ON THE TRACKS send DELACROIX to 
the Dark Arena?  He had a 6-3-0, and I thought he looked neat on the sands...  Pinch 
me, I must be dreaming!!!  ANOTHER DA returns from the Dark Arena, maybe a "little 
upset" at his AIMER'S INC teammates...  It was kind of sad, seeing old ABEL stumbling 
around the arena, before 56TH AND WABASHA finished it off.  Oh well!  That was so 
totally rude when 56TH AND WABASHA wasted ABEL.  I think all you warriors in WILLAF 
should gang up on BLOOD ON THE TRACKS!  EARLY ONE MORNING bloodfeuded (is that a 
word?) HALIFAX for revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  
What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
