    GTB Aki 2020- 121 entries - and RESULTS!!

    Sorry, I was on vacation during the basho and that voluntary sumo break ended up a bit more extended than I had anticipated. GTB completely slipped my mind until about six hours after the deadline.

    Retirees after Haru 2020

    7 retirements have been announced, no former sekitori among them: Wakaichiro (Musashigawa) - link, link Kasugamine (Nakagawa) Teruju (Isegahama) Kotonoshima (Sadogatake) Bariki (Shikoroyama) Tetsubisho (Shikoroyama) Fukunofuji (Isegahama) banzuke-gai I think we're all breathing a sigh of relief that Bariki isn't going to struggle on. Fukunofuji is a decently talented 21-year-old who progressed to mid-sandanme smoothly three years ago before hitting the wall there, and has been MIA for close to a year now.

    Long Kachikoshi Streaks - Haru 2020

    Lights, camera, action! And pretty much just that this month... Here's your sanyaku- and hopefully also corona-free LKS ballot for Haru basho: 1. Kotoshoho 8 2. Kotonowaka 7 3. Roga 7* 4. Terunofuji 6 5. Amakaze 6 6. Suzuki 6 7. Daikisho 6 8. Kotosusumu 6 9. Yutakayama 5 10. Akua 5 11. Tokisakae 5* 12. Kitanowaka 5* 13. Shoji 5 14. Toma 5* 15. Yoshii 5* 16. Ito 5* 17. Enho 4 18. Hidenoumi 4 TB: [pick?] (* marks rikishi with no makekoshi since debut) The scoring and thus your game assignment: For sanyaku: Please predict an exact record for each rikishi. The target record will be calculated after the deadline and will be chosen so that it bisects the predictions as evenly as possible. The predictions will then be converted into + and - votes as usual; one point for each correct prediction. For lower-ranked rikishi: Please predict for each rikishi if he will finish KK or MK; one point for each correct prediction. (For clarification: If you're expecting an outright makekoshi for one of the sanyaku high-rankers, just predict MK, exact records are only needed on the kachikoshi side of things.) First tie-breaker: From among those 18 guys up there and the further 7 rikishi (3 'veterans' and 4 newcomers) who are currently just shy of a 5-KK streak, please guess how many KK you expect in total. Your tie-breaker guess may be anything from 0 to 25. Only exactly correct guesses qualify at this tie-breaker stage. Note: Sanyaku count as correct for the tie-breaker if they achieve KK, they do not need to meet their target records. Next 17 tie-breakers if needed: Correctly predicted rikishi, one-by-one in ballot order, i.e. starting at Kotoshoho. Extra tie-breakers, should two or more players have entered identical ballots: Proximity of their tie-breaker guesses to the correct number, followed by proximity of their sanyaku rikishi guesses to the correct records (one-by-one in ballot order). Final tie-breaker: earliest entry. Note: Rikishi who show up on the before-shonichi kyujo list will be excluded from scoring (even if they end up joining the basho later), so it is not necessary to re-submit your entry if you picked such a rikishi as a KK; he will not count for points anyhow. You may, however, notify me if you'd like to reduce your tie-breaker guess by one point to compensate for the "missing" rikishi. Your position on the entry list (for final tie-breaker purposes) will be deemed unchanged in this special situation. Any other changes to a ballot will be considered a new entry, with correspondingly lower priority for the final tie-breaker. Deadline: Shonichi noon JST. ----- Simplified entry template: 1. Kotoshoho KKMK 2. Kotonowaka KKMK 3. Roga KKMK 4. Terunofuji KKMK 5. Amakaze KKMK 6. Suzuki KKMK 7. Daikisho KKMK 8. Kotosusumu KKMK 9. Yutakayama KKMK 10. Akua KKMK 11. Tokisakae KKMK 12. Kitanowaka KKMK 13. Shoji KKMK 14. Toma KKMK 15. Yoshii KKMK 16. Ito KKMK 17. Enho KKMK 18. Hidenoumi KKMK TB xx --- I was going to strike-through all the parts of the rules that don't apply this time due to the lack of sanyaku-rankers, but sanity prevailed before I could subject you to that visual disaster.

    You know that happened a year and a half ago, right?

    General Corona Banter

    Yeah, they're still not barred from attending, it's just that a lot of Belarusians have smartly decided to engage in their own personal anti-corona measures when their government won't and so almost nobody is going to the matches anymore.

    Oh fancy, he really does think it's clever to troll this thread. Well then, let's stop pussy-footing around... I'm honestly not sure what to think when somebody tasked to be a moderator of all things gets all passive-aggressive because people have dared to challenge his inane ramblings, as you have here of late. Not that it's the first time, far from it, but usually it's been done only by newer posters not yet wise to the fact that your posts are best ignored altogether. To this day I have no idea how somebody with analytical and judgement skills as questionable as yours ended up part of the moderation team on this forum. Lucky for you that the moderating needs on here are such that your inadequacies haven't got exposed often enough to become plainly noticeable to most. You're doing a fine job of changing that right now.
  13. Asashosakari

    General Corona Banter

    Are you capable of mounting your own arguments, or are you really forced to link to other people's op-eds and memes to speak for you? (Apparently with the erroneous assumption that you're somehow looking clever doing it.)
  14. Asashosakari

    General Corona Banter

    Are you going to spam this thread with links to any article that tenuously supports whatever argument you thought you were having with Kinta now?
  15. Asashosakari

    General Corona Banter

    I don't believe the population density in Sweden's actual population centres is markedly different from the mid-sized and larger cities in most other European countries. That Sweden also has vast areas where (almost) nobody lives is pretty irrelevant, since those obviously have no effect on how the virus spreads in the places where people do live.

    Banzuke for Natsu(?) 2020

    I'm guessing we'll simply see it called "July Basho" in English, in Japanese it'll just be 七月場所 shichigatsu basho as always. None of the "common" names (Hatsu, Haru...) are official, after all. As for whether they'll bother to print a new banzuke, I kind of doubt it. (Might as well toss a coin on that question though...) I'm fairly sure they won't revise the actual ranking for anything, however, just carry it over as is.

    It's about saving lives by preventing health services from becoming overwhelmed. Same as everywhere that similar measures were instituted.

    And the rather alarming Swedish per-capita Covid-19 death rate that Kintamayama also noted? Especially in light of the fact that what you say very likely indicates that their death toll is undercounted to an even greater degree than that of other countries... Edit: In addition, I'm not sure exactly how "Sweden is counting its cases more restrictively than other countries" is an argument in favour of them "doing rather well" when the country's case total is very high compared to its neighbouring countries even with that.

    GTB Natsu 2020- 106 entries and results!

    48 here. I'd love to blame the 12 points lost by West/East switches (Yutakayama/Takanosho, Tokushoryu/Ishiura, Wakatakakage/Kotoshoho), but it's not like those account for the majority of the damage. Edit: Reonito at Tachiai has 57 if his published guess is what he sent in and I counted correctly. If that's not the winner's score it might not be far off.
