    Since you're ahead on tie-breakers (Day 7), it should be you making a move. Edit: And you should pick differently than me (Day 4).

    Everytime I see him on the dohyo I'm surprised how small he appears. He has the perfect build for sumo if only he hadn't stopped growing a tad too soon. With a bit more oomph he'd be a dead ringer for Musoyama.

    This may well turn into "Guess CoVid's Aite" in the end. Here's hoping it won't be Isegahama: Day 15 - Nishikifuji

    YDC convenes after Nagoya 2022?

    So what?

    YDC convenes after Nagoya 2022?

    Not that there was anything to discuss in the first place...

    So the current crop of shinpan are the first to enforce this rule after many years? And here's a tricky question: what if Tamawashi had touched down *outside* the ring before Tsurugisho landed?
  12. Jakusotsu

    Nagoya 2022

    Either rikishi B or torinaoshi. Let's put it another way: Sure, Tsurugisho was completely airborne and on his way out with no way to recover, no doubt about that. Yet Tamawashi was clearly on his way down, and got there quicker. Why exactly does that make him a winner instead? Everybody could have lived with a torinaoshi, which should be called way more often in cases like these IMO. But Tamawashi no kachi is simply wrong.

    First and foremost I miss the days when the rules were simple. Touch down first and you lost, and every mono-ii agreed. Now you have a hard time to explain these decisions to the people you tried to entice into sumo being the first professional sport using video replays.

    Don't worry. As mentioned above, that was my guess as well. But as long as the Kyokai sits at the bottom of the arasoi (), let them have their little fun with us.

    Endo always makes me remember Takanowaka - yet another legend sewn around an injury presumably preventing a big career. (...not quite as hyped, and not quite as successful initially, but still...)

    Favorite Songs

    Yup, that's exactly the kind of stuff we thought music was all about when we were young at that time (having just escaped all these John Farnhams and Mr.Misters). I've read the've just realeased a new album, but didn't check it out yet. And while we're at simple and beautiful, this one keeps on growing on me each and every time.
