                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SOLVEN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with CULLIGAN?  He 
actually beat MIDDLE WAY 15's ELDON KREE, and walked away with 13 more points from 
the fight.  Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 15.  ELDON KREE lost 6 points to CULLIGAN.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe ELDON KREE will provide more easy wins...  HOTL 
MUSCHEL was reminded on the sands why SEREPHIM is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to 
have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, KELLUMBO'S KIDS!  In my day, no team with a 533-245-19 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, DROP THE LEASH?  What do people see in ELDON KREE?  His 3-11-0?  
MIDDLE WAY 15 ain't talkin', but he's got 20 points.  Taunt your opponent JILIAN 
NORMAN!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 26 points!) 
ULTRA FAITH should have an easy win.  ULTRA FAITH overcame JILIAN NORMAN.  I bet 
ULTRA FAITH could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, MIDDLE WAY 15 knows who to set 
their sights on.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
