    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Oh boy, Kisenosato looked terrible today. Now all the retirement talk will start up again He just doesn’t seem to have any power, or any clue what to do if he can’t get his favoured grip.
  2. Kasugano rikishi Tochinoshin and Tochiozan can't face each other. Sakaigawa rikishi Goeido and Myogiryu can't face other.

    It don't think it can be that as Hakuho has five and they seem to be included in his total.

    Happy Birthday, Asashosakari!

    What Pandaazuma said :) Have a good one!
  8. Interesting- I've seen some debate on the forum as to whether Takanohana stable was regarded a continuation of Futagoyama beya under a new name, or a new entity.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2018

    That would be the "Hochiyama rule." If you can get your shisho, the former holder and another active oyakata to act as guarantors then the eligibility is lowered to 28 tournaments.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Kyokutenho was 37 years, eight months when he won his championship. Maybe it was oldest yokozuna?

    Takanohana resigns

    Oh god, now I remember - a back-and-forth over whether Taka was asking for the Kyokai's public interest status to be revoked. Rather not go there again.

    Takanohana resigns

    What precisely were Taka's accusations in his letter of complaint ?

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    The main feeling I have at the end of this basho is a huge sense of relief that Kisenosato lives to fight another day. I dunno if Hakuho’s yusho was really zensho worthy. He looked a bit shaky on a couple of occasions. Still, it was an impressive comeback. Maybe taking a few basho off by withdrawing if he is just a little injured, with the odd yusho thrown in, will be the way he gets to 2020 and the Olympics.

    Sansho for Aki 2018

    I thought Takakeisho getting a kachikoshi for the first time in sanyaku deserved a kantosho. Yoshikaze perhaps lost votes due to his very low rank. Ryuden fell away rather badly.

    Aurora breaks the record and Aki weigh-in

    I hope he can still get medical care back in Russia.
