  1. Preparations of the masses- May 2018

    Great video. And man does Hoshoryu look like his uncle!

    Alas, I fear that fate became pretty near unavoidable when he didn't undergo immediate surgery.

    You are most certainly welcome to share your opinion, and I wholeheartedly endorse your ability to do so on this forum, and I would never mean to imply otherwise! By "all", I mean those who find such posts hard to decipher, along with yourself, who put forward the proposition that your longer post would be even more difficult to understand. A bit of piss-taking is all, my stance on your opinions notwithstanding ;)

    Well, you've at least made a point we can likely all agree on here.

  6. Doreen Simmons' Passing

    Very sad news indeed. While I never had the pleasure of meeting her, her contributions here were always insightful and greatly appreciated. She will be missed.

    Hey, as they say, what an aspirin suppository won't cure, there is no cure for!
  8. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    I'll have to defer to those better informed than I to shed any light on that. And I'd agree that Takanohana's behaviour definitely makes his motivations suspect. I have no issue with people speculating as to Takanohana's motivations and machinations. But imputing those to Takanoiwa and proposing to call him out, without serious evidence, as not suffering from a condition which a medical certificate ascribes to him is something I can't get behind. If evidence arises, have at it, but until then I'd suggest the better road is to stick to sticking it to Takanohana if that's your thing, rather than Takanoiwa.

    Suffering PTSD following a violent assault is nothing silly. Again, more computer chair psychiatry. It's certainly possible that Takanohana is making things up. However, until you can present some pretty compelling evidence establishing that, alleging an individual is making up a serious medical condition that many would rather not admit to in public is not exactly sporting.

    Nothing quite like seeing the Dunning-Kruger effect in action. I think we're all able to sleep much better knowing you aren't providing Takanoiwa with medical care.
  11. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    Military personnel suffering from PTSD enter into far more stressful and combative circumstances regularly before, and possibly after, diagnosis. Lay people commenting on the likelihood of an individual suffering from a psychiatric condition based on an incredibly limited understanding of the condition and with zero interaction with the patient is one of the reasons stigma still attaches to these medical conditions and often go unreported. I personally have not been on Takanohana's side throughout all of this, at all, but to try to pass judgment on Takanoiwa and his medical fitness is more than a step too far in my opinion.
  12. Should-have-been Y/O

    I'd have to agree on Wakanosato. I was going to post his name up, as I was always a fan, but on reviewing his records on the database, it's hard to make an argument for ozeki promotion. A strong perennial sekiwake, but not more.

    Which has actual information, rather than just a spam link to another website (albeit a website I and am sure many SF readers follow already).

    Not to make light of a serious post, but the mental image I now have of Chiyomaru trying to drive a kei truck is hilarious.
