                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to MIDDLE WAY 10, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the DEATH MOB 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for IED, who flew up 25 points in the rankings 
after mashing WOLF RIDER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like 
a basher in the top ten was WOLF RIDER, who dropped 21 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with IED.  In front of all the crowds, DEATH MAGE took the 
Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that FLAGG'S DEVASTATORS was 
most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of FLAGG'S 
DEVASTATORS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
DEATH MOB's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
FLAGG'S DEVASTATORS.  And who is this GORMODUC IRN you ask, with 63 points and a 
10-16-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the VALAMANTIS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you 
can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one 
already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
