    Tochinoshin had one stolen yesterday and he stole one back today. Cant blame him at all. Rather fitting henka.

    Feginowaka passed away

    Sorry to read this news, I saw Asashosakari's profile blurb and quickly put two and two together. Though I have retired from games, his name was one that was always at the top. 52. Too young.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    September basho 2008 Asashoryu was on the receiving end a similar call. IIRC it was a lot close than this case. http://www.sumoforum.net/forums/topic/16231-asashouryu-just-got-screwed/ When I searched just now...I had to laugh. I started the thread..Hah, guess I should disqualify myself my these dodgy tawara call debates. I'm not impartial ;)

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Heres a juicy little conspiracy. It's curious from the video above that there is no mark on the sand from Tochinoshins heel....the Shimpan does not raise his hand, nothing. Asanoyama falls and lies there for a second, no hand raised, Asanoyama then clumsily drags his hand backward across the outside of the tawara exactly where any heel imprint evidence would be. As soon as that happens Shimpan seems to notice and instantly puts up his hand as the evidence or rather lack of evidence has been erased by Asanoyama. Awfully convenient. He knew that he would be easier to make a dodgy call stick with the sand disturbed. If he thought Tochinoshin had stepped out, his hand would have gone straight up. It is just too convenient. Which weasel shimpan was sitting over there? Need to investigate. https://imgur.com/gallery/CvcPHAS Screenshots of the events of which I speak.

    Abema TV all sumo live

    The nice thing about living in Japan is the apps for android and ios for abema. Streams have come a long way since the terrible low res one that the NSK website used to host back in the day. 65000 people are viewing the abema stream right now, Pretty popular it seems.

    Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    hmmm. well....the interwebs, worldwide have been blowing up about this one. rather than just local channels , the scandal is a global one. Many agencies are really squeezing every bit of juice out of it with dare I say it - "fake news"....before you get "triggered", the narrative being pushed is "first responders" ordered out the ring and prevented from doing their job. "Bystanders" leaping in and an emergency worker on duty, are not the same thing, and reporting it incorrectly gives a certain narrative more sway. That said this lady doctor was marvellous and should be highly commended. Curiously the first responders narrative can be traced back a female Japanese reporter for AP. The gyoji announcer is an absolute moron, seriously, zero tact nor common sense displayed. This one is on him. This could be handled so much better, Someone ring side could have tactfully ushered the ladies away once the real emergency workers had control of the situation, but no, this idiot has pretty much stomped a mud hole and created the whole incident. The issue core to this story is the females in the ring. personally, I think its time for the rule to go by the wayside. anyway, next time put someone educated, worldly and with a brain on the mic.

    Basho Talk ** Haru Basho 2017 ** (SPOILERS)

    wow, it's been a while since I posted last...I'm still alive....just popped by to say damn! I need to eat some humble pie, I have been fiercely critical of the rikishi formerly known as Hagiwara over the years. He showed some genuine guts this basho. I was quite speechless. well done to the new Yokozuna. I am munching on my pie.

    Preparations of the masses-March 2015

    . Actually its Yamatotakada in Nara, just down the road from me I go every year and watch Indeed it is, its an empty warehouse in the compound of Daiwa Gas. The rikishi stay in the dormitory for workers. The president of Daiwa gas, forget his name, I call him the silver fox, comes in every day to watch keiko, he also owns a luxury golf course in Southern Nara. The empty warehouse is also used as a indoor baseball batting cage, big green nets up on the opposite side of the dohyo. http://tinyurl.com/onrk3ps you can see it here in the background of streetview I have been going to watch Shikoroyama for the past 10 years, the evolution if the keikoba has been interesting to see, in the beginning there was nothing, a bit of dirt and that was it. There have been many albums and photos I've posted over the years on this forum,a bored sumo fan might go trawling through if they were so inclined.
