    The best recent Yokozuna at their peak

    i was never a big fan of him but i have to admit that Takanohana at his peak was the best Yokozuna i ever saw........ he won games that were supposed to win very comfortably and rarely lose the rest...... damn................i hated him for that, to tell the truth ..... :-P

    Ozumo and steroids

    i am sure there is usage of steroids in ozumo as it is in all physical sports...... >:-D the fact that Kyokai doesn't look too serious about doing something is based on their fear that the sport will face a huge slump. I am not talking about going out public with the results they get from tests, but unofficially banning these drugs untill the "field" is clear and the official tests will be clean....... this way they won't face displeasure from fans by the bad publicity but the reprecusions on the rikishis will be dramatic.Serious injuries,poor form and eminently lack of interest is their greatest fears. We saw this in italian football when the steroids were "unofficially" banned and the form of italian teams in Europe (who dominated the european cups at that point) slumped for a few years....... The same lack of action is noted in NFL,Baseball and less in the NBA because these sports are cecluded within their borders (as it is with sumo) and they have their own laws that fit their publicity plans and goals........

    Zensho for Asashoryu.

    his performance showed that he is far better now than he was when he got his first yushos and then slumbed in form.The only Ozeki to remain a favourite against Asa is Kaio in my opinion, who is very dominant in his good days and still holds a winning record against him.But Kaio is not at top form........

    Who is your favourite foreign sekitori?

    except from Asasekiryu (i hope he will prove me wrong) all of the listed rikishi look great or promising (even Kyokushuzan with his steping-back sumo). special mention to: Asashoryu who is a league of his own Shuzan and Tenho who have great technique Kokkai who is a rising power (he could win a basho in a year or so if he remain in the lower ranks and don't rush to the top....... :-D ) Kotooshu who is gigantic and with the right training could go very high (i haven't seen him fight ever but with this body he could go far).

    Zensho for Asashoryu.

    you are way off............... i couldn't think of a name and i used my favourite football team's name....... (In a state of confusion...) as for the topic....... i think Chiyo can make one yusho but with Zuma's performance this basho i can't think of another one. If Asa remains injury-free it is very tough to be beaten by these Ozekis.And to win a basho it is nessesary to beat Asa as it looks like.......

    LIVE or TV?

    I guess when i actually go to Japan and watch a basho live than i can say my opinion.I cannot even watch it "live" on TV here in Greece. My experience (from football) tells me that you don't go to a match to have better view, but to live the experience (the sounds,the smells,the atmosphere)

    How long have you been a fan of sumo?

    i follow sumo the last five years (since i discovered it on Eurosport) mostly through the internet. I watch the games recorded on the net and on Eurosport whenever they are on....... i think that i am the only fan of sumo in Greece because i haven't found another one over the years and when i tell someone about the rikishis and the bashos he gives me " the look " (In a state of confusion...)......... do you know a sattelite channel in Europe that broadcasts the bashos live?

    How many will Asashoryu win in the March Basho?

    I think a consecutive 15-0 is a bit much but he looks so dominant. I have to vote for 15-0 since i cannot think of anyone that can beat him (maybe Kaio?) he needs a great performance and a yusho outside Tokyo and this is the best chance he will get, since everyone is so mediocre.......

    Which Ozeki do you like the most?

    I like Kaio because he is fearsome when he enters the dohyo and looks at the opponent. He is the only one that holds a winning record over Asashoryu (not for long as it seems.....) and when he wins he usually wins in an emphatic way......

    Zensho for Asashoryu.

    Hi guys....first post............ (Laughing...) i think that Asashoryu's dominance is at it's beggining.I cannot see an opponent that is in his league at this point. the Ozeki's look a bit tired and old (Musoyama,Kaio) or doesn't have the consistency to be Yokozuna (Chiyo,Tochiazuma). Even if a surprise rikishi from the lower ranks can grab a basho, an Ozeki must make his mark to ruin Asa's 5 bashos this year.And the only Ozeki to do so is Chiyotaikai in my opoinion.......
