  1. No the ban was already in place well before the Toki incident. I think Mitoizumi in the mid 80s had a motorcycle accident and got cuts to his face, and had to go kyujo, and that was why the ban was introduced.
  2. Are there rikishi that have licenses even though they are all banned from driving? That seems a little odd.
  3. Random Bouts

    How about Sentoryu over Asashoryu in 2000?
  4. Toki killed someone and only got a one basho suspension.
  5. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Far from being pressured to retire, I think the opposite was the case - the Kyokai wanted him to carry on until the opening of the new Kokukigan (which he did, and then retired three days into the first tournament held there.)
  6. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I was actually thinking of Takamiyama - Takanohana Aki 1980.
  7. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Yeah, and I bet touching with the tip of the mage is unheard of as well...
  8. Preparations of the Y/O Hatsu 2018

    Thanks for the link. It appears repeated use of foul language is "strongly discouraged" rather than "forbidden" and it is repeated use so a one-off F-bomb is probably ok.
  9. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Aminishiki is also a member of that club.
  10. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    And also for equaling Tosanoumi's record of getting a kinboshi in four straight tournaments.
  11. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I guarantee you there is not a single rikishi or oyakata who shares that opinion.
  12. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    There have been two examples of ex-ozeki competing in juryo - Daiju and Miyabiyama - so no reason why Terunofuji couldn’t. But there has never been an ex-ozeki (or indeed, any makuuchi yusho winner) competing in makushita.
  13. Kitataiki intai

    Sorry, my bad.
