                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome RODEKI.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with VEAL MARSALA?  
He actually beat INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP's KOOL MOE DEE, and walked away with 24 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP.  KOOL MOE DEE lost 18 
points to VEAL MARSALA.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KOOL MOE DEE will 
provide more easy wins...  RODEKI has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy. 
He challenged DELVERS' ISENGALEN (16-34-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  
ISENGALEN was reminded on the sands why SEAFOOD RISOTTO is Duelmaster.  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  RODEKI thinks VENETIAN 
CINQUE and their 21-10-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at VENETIAN CINQUE ain't reelin'!  VENETIAN 
CINQUE's mad!  What do people see in PASDANOUS?  His 20-26-0?  INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP 
ain't talkin', but he's got 87 points.  Keep challenging up 26 points, DIG FOREMAN, 
and I won't have to write about you much longer.  PASDANOUS always accepts those kind 
of challenges...  Who knows what was running through DIG FOREMAN's head, but 
PASDANOUS rearranged it for him.  How soon will DIG FOREMAN make a challenge like 
that again?  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that 
HIPPO HUNTRESS gets in.  She fights people like KARLIGRENA, 13 points below.  I 
thought HIPPO HUNTRESS showed great skill and promise when she bested KARLIGRENA.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  TALIB KWELI looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned 
INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP is sending him to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 
15-24-0?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.  
     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
