    Kyushu 2022 discussion (results)

    It reminds me of this! It's called ταυροκαθάψια (tavrokathapsia) and was a game in Minoan Crete.
  2. I think Takayasu should be promoted to Sekiwake. Assume that next basho he gets another jusho-dotten (I cannot imagine he will ever win the cup). He should then become an Ozeki, fixing another hole in the banzuke. But as a Komusubi he won't be allowed to get promoted skipping a rank.

    New Juryo for Kyushu 2021

    Worth the try! Keep on "forgetting" Shodai!

    They just want to list Hakuho as Yokozuna-Ozeki! Oh the devils!

    Ridiculous Predictions Aki 2021

    So, after Takakeisho's dreadful start and pressumably bad state, a (not so) ridiculous prediction: Hakuho intai on purpose so the sumo association does not have a second Ozeki, not even a Yokozuna-Ozeki one! They are forced to choose between a makekoshi Mitakeumi and a M1 Hoshoryu with JY to promote to Ozeki, to fill in the rank!
  6. What happens if the leader dies? If he is forced to go intai?

    Preparations of the masses- Nagoya 2021

    Why isn't PROPER in green? Do we have a bug or something?

    Nagoya Yusho Predictions?

    Yusho: Hakuho just to suck all the lifeforce of everyone expecting a smooth transition to the next generation. Jun yusho: Shodai and Terunofuji with 11 wins each. Total collapse of Takakeisho, another disappointing basho from Takayashu.

    Preparations of the Y/O- Haru 2021

    Well, during his first run people used to throw zabuton when he was losing...
  10. Any idea if Terunofuji indeed got injured?

    the Dark Side of Hakuho....

    And we love him because pressumably he did not call the mono-ii because he lost, but because he felt the fans deserved better.

    And let's not forget Kisenosato that still crushes poor Takayasu in keiko.

    Goeido to Retire

    Kisenosato was NEVER a part of the OBSC.

    Dangerously close to the third rail...

    The athletes in ancient Greek Olympics were buck naked, as a sign of innocence and proof they had nothing to hide. Nudity was one of the main reasons for the demise of Ancient Olympics, with the advent of Christianity.
