                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in TALCAMA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  GHAELIE SIDHE were 
a bunch of dogs after STONE COLD got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
Hmmmph!  I always thought ANIMAL PHARM was an over-rated team and they proved it with 
a 0-0-0!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  
Block out the pain!  CENTER FOR OLDS is now ranked 5th with a 1-0-0 turn.  It seems 
so recently people were saying STREET PIZZA was washed up, finished.  But 3-0-0 moved 
them up 2.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with HAMMER FINGER?  He 
actually beat TALCAMA's VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and walked away with 18 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at STREET PIZZA while they watched TOO SUAVE clobber 
INZO.  She lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try 
as he might, SPOONIE G wasn't good enough at persuading ABCESS to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was SUPERIOR FORCES 6N.  In my day, no team with a 242-212-16 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, GHAELIE SIDHE?  What do people see in DIP?  His 23-24-0?  CENTER 
FOR OLDS ain't talkin', but he's got 111 points.   
     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...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  TALCAMA 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen
