  1. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Kyujo for Aminishiki and Kisenosato tomorrow???
  2. Hatsu Day 1 match-ups

    What are your predictions for Day 2? I'm impressed!!
  3. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    I don't know if I understood it correctly but what I took from NHK news last evening, Takanohana was dismissed, but could be voted back to the position at the next annual meeting and appointment of directors.
  4. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Where did you see that Kisenosato is out ? Obviously been expecting it but I checked NSK and its not mentioned as yet.
  5. Order of the Rising sun for Doreen

    Doreen's commentary on the bilingual broadcast of NHK Sumo helped me understand so very much of the finer detail of the games. Congratulations Doreen. Well deserved.
  6. Day 1 comments - Aki 2017

    Really appreciate this analysis. Thanks.
  7. PR for Natsu 2017

    Are you looking for the May basho? I see buysumotickets.com is taking preorders for foreigners for the July basho.
  8. Nagoya 2016 Rikishi Status - FINAL

    Can someone remind me please who Goeido was fighting last basho, when he got his eye socket injury?
  9. Rugby World Cup

    Congratulations Japan, an historic win over South Africa. A game worth replaying and replaying. Japan 34 - South Africa 32
  10. Basho Talk - Aki 2015 +++ Spoiler alert! +++

    In my area when they are broadcasting the DIET or some "breaking news" they usually show sumo on a second (sub quality) channel. My wife had to find it for me. I really think sumo needs to get a better contract or one with a different station. NHK is pitiful at times. If all else fails, UBS picks up the NHK Sumo live coverage even when NHK is playing with the Diet or breaking news. Thank you for that. The other night I got really annoyed having to watch, rewatch, that fight in parliament. They overdo it.
  11. Endou situation

    This may be of interest. One of New Zealand Top All Blacks,( the world class rugby team) Aaron Cruden, ruptured his ACL in his left knee over the weekend. He is to go into surgery tomorrow, and will be out of the game for the next six months with supervised and controlled rehabilitation. Aaron weighs 84kg and is 26yrs old. All professional comments are that whilst he will probably miss the Rugby World cup at the end of the year, he should be fine for next year. Nobody sees it as the end of his career. Admittedly rugby is an 80min game, and sumo is quite different, I tend to think Endo, because he is young would be better to have the operation, rehab, then come back even if he has to start in Juryo or lower. JMHO.
  12. NHK World Premium

    Should have added we pay NZD$50 per month but we also get 2 Korean and 5 Chinese channels in the package.. which we never watch!
  13. NHK World Premium

    Here in New Zealand we have NHK World and NHK Premium wrapped into one channel, so we get some of each. We certainly get the basho's live and bilingual.
  14. Video Stream - Availability

    NHK Premium here in New Zealand also showing ISIS news report... and NIJI still stuck on "Coming soon" though other lower channels working. Sumo seems to be jinxed!!... thank god for IPhone App at least it keeps the results up to date. Haven't bought the Premium tanimachi, they want $4.99 NZ$ a month,
  15. Kyushu 2014 - General Talk

    I saw Homasho's Juryo W9 name on the Absent Rikishi List on Nihon Sumo Kyokai, so he can't be fit. I feel so sorry for this guy, he's slipping down. Maybe he could do what Tochinoshin did and get his problems sorted, and climb right back through the ranks again.... doesn't seem to work out well when they have big injuries and try to work through them.
