                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JHANS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with SIDEWINDER?  He 
actually beat MIDDLE WAY 17's CHESTER GRELL, and walked away with 9 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at SERPENTS HOLD while they watched VENOM clobber ORVAL 
PAYNE.  He lost 3 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  What a 
role model for JHANS' young 'uns!  BEEF becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight 
no more!  I'm sure JHANS is excited about VIPER, the new Duelmaster from SERPENTS 
HOLD.  (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 WRATHMEN.  In my day, no team with a 56-39-2 would scare me 
off!  What's the problem, SERPENTS HOLD?   
     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.  JHANS is 
a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Viper -- A snake in the grass!  I should have suspected when I saw that patch of
grass on the sands, but no, I thought it was a landscaping initiative. -- Chester
Grell

     Perhaps we should consider a landscaping initiative.  It isn't like there's much
     else for the arena staff to do. -- Ripples Dorrigan

The Flyest -- I wanted to come out with fly spray, but the steward stopped me.  Drat.
-- Hildreth Lamont

Venom -- Everywhere I look, SNAKES!  AAAAAH! -- Goran Koblinz, indulging a little
phobic behavior

And two wins over standbys.  We, the two of us, don't mind that! -- Jonz Klee and
Orval Payne
