    Bench Sumo news

    Hi all, Here is the new Bench banzuke for March 2019. This one was quite difficult - and there is (alas) some banzuke bad luck - particularly around the divisional breaks. Some players have ended up with good banzuke luck - so that is nice (for them). Without further ado....

    Bench Sumo news

    Hi everyone! Here are the updated standings for the Zentoryu Quality of Sumo Award for 2019 after the January 2019 basho. This is the combined results of the ZQoSA from March 2018 to January 2019. It reads like this..... Current ZQoSA position - (Change from after November 2019) - Rank on the January 2019 banzuke - shikona - Total ZQoSA points from the previous 6 bashos - (points gain from after January 2019, basically January 2019 minus January 2018). Bill is the new leader, as he leaps upwards seven places! There are plenty of players on his tail, so the top 10 could have a big shake-up after the March basho. pandaazuma and Terarno are the two new members of the 'sanyaku level'. Over-and-out!

    Bench Sumo news

    Hi everyone! I am very proud to announce that we will have a 'new' Ozeki for March 2019. Norizo's recent record has been as follows:- Sep '18 -- M2E (10-5) Nov '18 -- K1E (9-6) Jan '19 -- S1E (11-4) This means the bench sumo guidelines of 30+ wins over three bashos, with the last two (ideally) being ranked at sanyaku, and the very last basho ranked at Sekiwake. <http://takanorappa.com/BenchStats/BenchOzeki.htm> It will be Norizo's third stint at the Ozeki rank (matching Flohru and Randomitsuki in this feat). He was first an Ozeki for 8 bashos, beginning November 2011. He was Ozeki again for 4 bashos, beginning May 2013. However, his record as an Ozeki (on both occasions) was below .500. We wish him better success with his third go at this rank. We look forward to hearing from Norizo on the occasion of his re-promotion. Jejima (BS rijicho)

    Doreen Simmons' Passing

    For Christmas, I was given the book 'The book of the year 2018' written by the people behind the 'No Such Thing as a Fish podcast' - who are some of the QI elves. On page 197 under the topic 'Obituaries' it has this entry:- Sumo commentator Doreen Simmons, 85: She was a Nottingham teacher before she became the English voice of sumo, commentating for Japan's national public broadcaster NHK for 25 years. Doreen was also an amateur singer, and amateur adventurer, and an amateur actor whose roles include those of 'soccer hooligan', 'transvestite geisha' and 'dying rhinoceros'.

    Takakeisho in 2019 - the Young 'un

    70% of us think that Takakeisho will spend the whole year in the sanyaku ranks. The median for his longest winning streak is 10.5 wins - but the mode is 12 wins. (This basho perhaps?) Three-quarters of us think that he will begin next year as an Ozeki - the other quarter suggesting that he will be a Sekiwake. Overall, it looks like we are predicting either a good year, or a very good year for this young rikishi! Will check back in November / December.
  10. Jejima

    Guess Kisenosato's Aite rule discussion

    Agreed - @Gurowake please summarise your suggestion for the rule change into a couple of sentences (we can refer back to your longer post for the explanation, if need be). NB: Any possible changes to the yusho tie-breaker for this game will not come into effect until March 2019, at the earliest.
  11. Jejima

    Mitakeumi in 2019

    Over half of us think that Mitakeumi will *not* drop out of the joi-jin this year (so no MKs?)! All three Ozekis are predicted by most to lose at least twice to Mitakeumi. The Yokozunas are picked less often, with Hakuho being the least picked. The median for the lowest rank for Mitakeumi to lose to is M5. See you in November / December!
  12. Jejima

    Goeido in 2019 - where is he going?

    Most of us expect Goeido to remain as an Ozeki at the year's end. Only two bashos of 10+ wins is the most popular prediction - along with just 4 four KKs - so a year of ups, downs and mediocrity....? I'll report back in November / December.
  13. Jejima

    Makunouchi Yushos in 2019

    Our predictions for where the yushos come from this year appear to be far more spread out than usual! The median (and mode) for Yokozuna yushos is three - so just half of the one's available this year. The median (and mode) for Ozeki yushos is two - so one third of the yusho's for this year. The median (and mode) for yushos from Sekiwake or a lower rank is one - so that's nice. Certainly no consensus as to which lucky low-ranked rikishi will take it!
  14. Jejima

    Aminishiki in 2019 - the veteran question

    Only a third of us think Aminishiki will not retire this year - ye of little faith! The median prediction is retirement in September / October. We shall see... Almost half of us think that his best record will be a respectable 9-6. (9-6 is also the median.) The mode (biggest pick) and median for his worst record is a disappointing (but not horrific) 5-10. Hoping to be able to report on this poll in November / December - and hoping to have a similar poll for next year!
