    Kisenosato intai

    And as yokozuna, Kisenosato wouldn't even have had to suffer that indignity. He could have taken as long as necessary to recover after surgery without loss of rank.

    Kisenosato intai

    This is the real tragedy of it. Prompt surgery followed by a couple of basho off to recover, and he might have had another yusho or two under his tsuna by now. Instead, it's all over. It need not have been.

    Kisenosato intai

    He owns the Araiso kabu, so this is certain.

    I wish this could have been avoided.
  5. In the 15-bout era, the juryo yusho was won with a 10-5 or worse record only 38 times, according to the Doitsubase. That doesn't necessarily invalidate your point, but this is a tad exaggerated.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Pretty much, yes.

    Potential Forum Meeting May 2017, updated to May 2019..

    Probably can't make it this time... :(
  8. Being able to read and understand spoken Japanese helps a great deal, I would imagine. Since that's how all the news comes out.

    Mbovo's channel on Twitch

    Thank you very much for all your effort. And I'd like to encourage anyone who finds mbovo's stream useful to donate via the link on his Twitch page. All this no doubt comes at a personal expense to him, and it's not really right that he should bear it by himself.

    Banzuke chirality

    From the POV of the TV cameras (and the Emperor; the imperial box is on that side too), 東 East is left and 西 West is right, but it does not follow that the other two directions are North and South. They are denoted 正 and 向 -- Principal and Opposite, maybe? Front and Back?

    A few questions to you guys about Yokozuna

    How exactly would the latter work exactly? We only have some idea of how good yokozuna of the past were by how well they performed against THEIR peers.

    Takanohana resigns

    We'd get a convoluted tale about an ancient Hebrew shopping list being mistakenly read as a banzuke...

    Takanohana resigns

    And whose theory might that be, exactly?
