    I thought he deserved a prize back in May as well. He won six in a row to go from 3-3 to 9-3 and was looking very good, although he only finished 9-6 in the end.

    Banzuke for Kyushu 2023

    Yeah that really confused me for a moment... First time since November 2019 that there have been six demotions from makuuchi. Tomokaze was one of those going down then, this is his first tournament back.

    The Musashigawa beya post says he graduated from high school this summer, so 18 presumably.

    Good luck to him. Hopefully he will have fewer injuries than his brother did.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Kyokai English site also has Kumagaya? https://www.sumo.or.jp/EnSumoDataRikishi/profile/94
  10. I don't think that's necessarily true. If you make a lot of errors, you get passed over for promotion. They've managed without a Shonosuke for a long time now.
  11. I don't take much interest in who the gyoji are to be honest, but hasn't this Shikimori Insoke made rather a lot of high profile errors lately? Why would they reward him with a promotion?
  12. When I first read it, I thought it had been previously been used by a guy who got kicked out for match-fixing, but that was Kirinowaka...

    Kokonoe's decline

    According to some threads I've seen on this forum Chiyonofuji had quite a bad reputation for the way he treated low rankers. There was the infamous story of Hokutenyu's younger brother who joined Kokonoe and ended up retiring early through Chiyonofuji's alleged mistreatment of him.

    Will they promote Takakeisho with a second straight yusho? Of course they will. Will Takakeisho get a second straight yusho? Of course he won't.

    Poor Jinmaku, had a flying rikishi fall on him when he was an active wrestler too (Fujinoshin) - that injury ended his makuuchi career.
