                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ERINIKA!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, MONGOL HORDE had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by MIDDLE WAY 18!  Way to go MIDDLE WAY 
18!  FAVORITE GUYS like really fought hard to move up to 4th from 11th.  Way to go!  
One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 3 after going 4-1-0.  Keep it 
up, MIDDLE WAY 18!  MVP award for POP KHAN?  MONGOL HORDE's proud of him after 
beating DEATH SUCKS and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  DEATH 
SUCKS got smashed by POP KHAN, and lost 13 points!  This Duelmaster is like something 
else!  SKIN PEELER stopped LAELKORISSA dead in hers tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really 
being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  BLACKMAIL was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 21-8-1 record really that scary?  I don't know what MONGOL HORDE's been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from BLACKMAIL, that's fer 
sher.  Can BLACKMAIL's DEATH SUCKS 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 gotta leave.  ERINIKA is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
