     Well, what are you looking at, ERINIKA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, SUE'S BOYS, since H8 2 TXT 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps up, SUPER 
STARS, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in the rankings? 
H8 2 TXT turned their 5-0-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  
Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ANASTASIA win a fight and gain 88 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
SALINDA RENN beat HERCULES and HERCULES lost 19 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Looks like ERINIKA has some guts at least, DEATH SUCKS the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  And if variety is the spice of life, ERINIKA may be getting 
bland, as DEATH SUCKS stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ERINIKA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
BLACKMAIL the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it 
looks like THE BULLS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens
