    Banzuke for Aki 2018

    Examples please for "Rikishis better than Ura haven gone 6-1 or worse"? Anyone can say that but I don't quite recall such an instance. I'd say 7-0 is indeed very likely given the disparity in skill between Ura and Sandanme. Of course if Ura is close to his old form.

    Pre-bout torikumi records can be wrong in rare cases, not sure why. That corrects itself after the bout. I think it looks ok now.

    You meant Motoyamamotoyama, right?

    He didn't mention juryo bouts as a requirement at all, just "juryo wrestler" which obviously points to the most likely bouts taking part in makuuchi.
  5. Sorry for being late but I had a good laugh here. Was that answer in jest or for real? Of course you just set the clock ahead by one hour in that "extra time"...

    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play The first is your fabulous Japan Times article, the second is the twitter channel of @Sumo_Jason. Sue him!

    Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Nah, while watching the video I wondered if it really was okuridashi, because Chiyomaru was out BEFORE the push already, watch his foot. So I'm not surprised at all the kimarite is different.

    You are correct, and I'd correct his shikona if I get detailed info about the used kanji. The Kyokai uses the hiragana because the kanji apparently isn't in the unicode set (it was much worse in the past when they still used Shift-JIS), so I'm thinking that 靏 also isn't the correct choice, but an approximation too... maybe it's a better choice though, but hard to tell without a close look on the actual banzuke.

    Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Wait what? You cite this (marked bold) and claim this as verifying your stance? Really? The bold phrase pretty clearly is beyond the basho's limitations and exactly fitting for exceptional cases like shin-makuuchi (actually the most regular and obvious example) and, yes, cases like Aminishiki.

    When does an “Ozeki run” begin?

    Thanks, I was just about to post this query. Phrasing such absolute statements is just hitting you back in the face when there are so many counter examples.

    Here are all such instances: Goeido in Aki 2007, days 14 and 15 (like Endo against Hakuho on day 14, and guess who Hakuho's day 15 opponent is tomorrow?) Takanosato in Nagoya 1980, days 13 and 14 Futagodake in Haru 1974, days 12 and 13 (the other way around with the first bout on day 12 and the last bout on the next day)

    Fixed... Edit: I did a rather big SQL and found 15 more of these weird musubi bouts, mostly from 1989 to 1993, all sorted properly now.

    What do you mean with this? If you look more closely, you'll see that for these basho no lower division results are available. Maybe I am missing something?
