  1. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Why not? Why is it a "luxury"? They have two further shimpan in the video booth who can look at replays from multiple angles. Why not take the time to get the decision right.
  2. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Famous last words. He still has to fight Goeido, who is only two wins behind. I could see a Goeido 12-3 yusho with Mitakeumi runner-up in a playoff or even 11-4 if he really chokes.

    Three, actually - Ichinojo also won by kotenage.

    And Kiyonomori, the second unfortunate 0-15 rikishi, is Katsuragawa's son-in-law and was Kise X.
  5. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    That's a bold prediction. He defeated two yokozuna in January and was in sanyaku just last November. Maybe he's just having a bad basho? I think that would be a premature retirement.
  6. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    How about we just say that Hakuho hasn't been able to catch a break this year and leave it at that. It's undeniable that injuries are affecting him more than they used to (understandable as he is now 33) and he has had a frustrating 2018. It could be the first year since 2005 that he doesn't yusho.

    You beat me to it! I was about to post the same query. I was surprised it was not unique actually.

    Didn't realise anyone still used that term in the 21st century.
  10. Trivia bits

    Was just reading a Google translation of Hokutoumi's Wikipedia article (as you do) and it said that his match with Asahifuji in July 1991 was the last bout to date between two Japanese-born yokozuna. That's 27 years! And if Kisenosato retires before the next Japanese yokozuna is promoted (which seems likely) we could be waiting quite a while longer.

    I don't believe there is any expedition. The book Gaijin Yokozuna pointed out that they wouldn't give citizenship to Chad Rowan; he had to legally become Akebono Taro.

    Can this be merged with the already-existing thread? Thanks.

    Well we had a thread on it back in 2011:
  15. Guess the rikishi

    That’s got to be Aminishiki’s knee.
