  1. Sumo Reference Updates

    Right, that is not going by the same rules here. Since jun-yusho isn't official and pretty much made up from me I can make my own rules... I feel someone with same win differential, but more draws should be ahead, so I did remove the jun-yusho for Komagatake in 1910.01. It's just 1 win for wins, 0.5 wins for draws, 0 for losses and absences in my mind, as sumo generally isn't very kind to absences.
  2. Sumo Reference Updates

    Correct, it's the only bout with both sides the same rikishi... fixed.
  3. Sumo Reference Updates

    Fixed.
  4. Sumo Reference Updates

    It's like Asashosakari said. Fixed.
  5. Sumo Reference Updates

    Not sure how that happened. Looks like it was once correct as h2h and basho record were correct, only the rikishi id was wrong here.
  6. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Kotoshogiku joins Miyabiyama, Takanonami and Noshirogata in that club.
  7. Rikishi Status Aki 2017 - Day 15 no changes

    Hatsu 1950 arguably trumps that with 12 top division rikishi who didn't appear on all 15 days. M15e Narutoumi has an 8-7 record, but had a fusenpai on day 9. Of course Nagoya 2002 had only 40 rikishi, so it was more than a quarter of makuuchi affected, while Hatsu 1950 had 52 makuuchi rikishi, so "only" 23% had missed bouts. Haru 1944 and Aki 1944 also have 11 rikishi with missed appearances as many rikishi got drafted into war duty. Natsu 1947 and Aki 1951 are the next in line with 10 rikishi who didn't appear at least once with three more basho at 9 rikishi, two of those at the end of World War II. Seven more basho follow at 8 rikishi, among them Nagoya 2010 as the most recent one. Prior to World War II it was not unusual for rikishi to miss single days, so I restricted my query to basho after 1940. Nagoya 2010 is very remarkable in a similar statistic as this is the post World War II with most missed appearances as those 8 rikishi totalled 98 missed appearances, trailing only Haru 1944 which had 103 of them. Nagoya 2002 is closely behind with 97. Hatsu 1950 actually just made it into the top ten with 82 missed appearances. If none of the currently missing seven makuuchi rikishi returns (Sadanoumi may be a candidate) the Haru 1944 record is in danger as we are in line for 101 missed appearances already. It's like war out there right now.
  8. Trivia bits

    His numbers never drop, they only rise through a career. It's more like a career strength measure - career wins weighted by opponent strength or something like that.
  9. Trivia bits

    I don't think it belongs here, and those numbers are disgracing the word ELO, really.
  10. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    This is the first time since Natsu 1997 that only one rikishi in sanyaku or above is 2-0 after two days.
  11. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Takagenji isn't juryo though. So we can still say, all Juryo rikishi on the East won today which should be quite the rare feat.
  12. Sumo Reference Updates

    Done. Corrected, thanks.

    And the gtb archives are updated thanks to the quick-as-always Andoreasu, here are the intereting selection stats.
  14. Yes, they would allow that, they don't care about romanization and why should they? Such cases with same romanization but different kana readings are numerous actually, here some examples: Tokiryu / Tokiryu Satoyama / Satoyama Byakko / Byakko
  15. YDC convenes-Nagoya 2017

    I don't see how Japanese citizenship is of big importance here, especially in a truly international event such as the Olympics. Akebono most certainly wasn't perceived as Japanese in 1998.
