                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome IAYE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Hmmmph!  I always thought 
HITLIST was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 0-0-0!  What's with DARK 
STAR?  It actually beat IAYE's SHIFTYEYED VOLUNTEER, and walked away with 31 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at GAMEHENDGE while they watched TELA clobber 
SONORA SARA.  She lost 5 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
I'm sure IAYE is excited about HELL'S WHISPER, the new Duelmaster from PERFECT 
HARMONY.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want 
to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was DOG DAY AFTERNOON.  In my day, no team with a 299-270-7 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, PERFECT HARMONY?   
     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...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  IAYE is a 
nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Dumb, Dumb -- How can I hope to compete with someone named Sonic Taco? :) It's funny
how different our fights are given the fact that neither of us changed our strategy.
Decise sure is a fickle thing.  You sure teach well for someone with that wit.  I'll
probably be fighting Cherko or Firedog this turn.  I only they hope they teach as
well. -- Gazelle Hound

Sonora Sara, Dark Chocolate -- So, which one of you will it be this turn? -- Great
Dane

Red Dog Gang -- Your dog house or ours for happy hour? -- Dog Day Afternoon

ranks.  He joins APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and RUDE BUDDHA as the 6th member.

     Has anyone seen it in print that the "Goat" is leaving the "Cartel"?  There were
some diplos to the effect of a special branch of the Cartel being formed, like secret
societies, governmental agencies and alliances certain agendas are developed.  To
obtain the desired effect of any agenda only key personnel can be used.  The "Goat"
is "Cartel" so until you see it with me announcing that I am not Cartel, remember,
"The Agenda of the Core is for you to fight for."  I hope this stops the confusion.
-- Goat
