                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome NIATOLI ISLAND.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the 
fights have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Hmmmph!  I 
always thought NYE MAULERS 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!  JAILBIRDS is now ranked 2nd with a 4-1-0 turn.  Major screwup at RAVAGING 
LORDS.  VEXER lost 8 points to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  
Maybe VEXER will provide more easy wins...  Har har har!  Did EGGPLANT wimp out, or 
just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure NIATOLI ISLAND is 
excited about SOCIETY RED, the new Duelmaster from JAILBIRDS.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  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.  The 
most avoided team was BIG LAKE BANDITS.  In my day, no team with a 507-505-49 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, RAVAGING LORDS?  What do people see in THE 
CRIPPLER?  His 19-14-7?  RAVAGING LORDS ain't talkin', but he's got 82 points.  
Fighting is a better craft than farming, SOCIETY RED, but you have to pay your dues.  
Being challenged by THE CRIPPLER, 17 points above you, is dues.  THE CRIPPLER's gonna 
be practicin' hard this week, after SOCIETY RED, lower ranked by far, mashed him!  
THE CLAW didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from NOLTE of 
JAILBIRDS, who is 19 points below him.  NOLTE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing 
as he beat THE CLAW and ended up with 21 recognition points.   
     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...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
