                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome FRATSFA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  
Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, WAH CHING's 4th 
moved them up to 3-1-0 place.  What's with HATEFUL HASTA?  She actually beat 
FRATSFA's VIRGINAL CONCUBINE, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at FLOWER GIRLS while they watched GLOATING GARDENIA clobber DARGON.  
It lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  SALINA REES 
was reminded on the sands why CONFLICT is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was WAH CHING.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at FLOWER 
GIRLS ain't reelin'!  WAH CHING's mad!  What do people see in WEI YAN?  His 10-12-1?  
WAH CHING ain't talkin', but he's got 57 points.  Taunt your opponent HU YAN ZHUO!  
That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 16 points!)  VELVET 
ROSE should have an easy win.  Just who can VELVET ROSE beat?  I mean, the last 
matchup with lesser-ranked HU YAN ZHUO shoulda been a piece of cake!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
FRATSFA 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
