                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out DAL SHANG to 
see what's new.  MVP award for JACK TRIPPER?  LAUGH TRACK LORDS' proud of him after 
beating KO THE AVERAGE and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  KO 
THE AVERAGE got smashed by JACK TRIPPER, and lost 10 points!  Don't you think the 
Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think GUNSLINGER should let SERGEANT 1 be Duelmaster 
for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  WITCHERS was the most avoided team.  Is a 3-11-0 
record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why LAUGH TRACK LORDS' been 
avoiding WITCHERS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can SAND DANCERS' 
KO THE AVERAGE be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
