     Well, what are you looking at, RODEKI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see KOOL MOE DEE win a fight and gain 30 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KARLIGRENA 
beat TALIB KWELI and TALIB KWELI lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as KWS stays top dog in 
the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, RODEKI?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  COLOR 
ME SUAVE, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like SHREDDERS avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  ISENGALEN 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, MONTROSE of SHREDDERS has added the final loss to his 9-6-0.  Tee 
hee!  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these 
kinds of weapons?   
     What does the RODEKI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Igor -- Nope, I'm not him... I'm the Motor City Madman! -- Uncle Ted

All -- My namesake has passed on from this world, he will be missed.  The Shredders
salute the memory of Ronnie Montrose.  He was truly an artist ahead of his time, once
upon a time. -- Montrose

Wheretheheckistan -- Well done, I didn't expect that. -- Hendrix

Armored Echo -- I did expect that! -- KWS

Jorja -- Do you really not know what my Shredder's names mean?  Or you just pullin'
my leg?  Cause I got more to go, and I'd hate to confuse you! -- Buri

Common Sense -- Well, Harby always says that I've never come to grips with you.
Looks like he's right... this time. -- Isengalen
P.S.  Not that I can see much point in it anyway.

I enjoy toying with the Venomous Concubine.  She holds no terrors for *me*. -- Igor
Jones

Trugoy the Dove -- Just a natural Andorian, are you?  It figures. -- Karligrena

And a couple of standbys for easy wins.  This is good. -- Jurgenhalen and Elifas
Kent, neither of whom has a problem with the idea of "easy wins"
