  1. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    You forgot Terutsuyoshi but he is OK at 6-5.
  2. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Harumafuji said before the basho when he knew he was the only Yokozuna that even if he is banged up it is his responsibility as sole Yokozuna to fight all 15 days.
  3. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Some egos running full on about who said what first declaring Onosho but no matter who wins this yusho it will go down in the short term as one of the shallowest victories. Long term, multiple absentees will be forgotten and the win will be in the books.
  4. Rikishi Status Aki 2017 - Day 13 w/d & return

    Is it possible to find out what is the most number of kyujo top div rikishi in 1 basho?
  5. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    You probably know but he wore it last basho.
  6. Sports Navi Live in 7 Steps

    So after the trial period what do they charge for this?
  7. Yotsuzumo/Oshizumo

    Years ago there was a thread on which style forumites preferred. Anyone have stats that show across all divisions as to which is more common. I understand in training as newbies enter sumo that Oshi is more common learning to move forward but in tournaments what is the most common. Rikishi profiles indicate their preferred style but that rarely is altered in the profiles when a rikishi changes his preference as time goes by.
  8. Basho Talk - Nagoya 2017 (SPOILERS)

    He slipped not the face tap.
  9. Sumo program announcements (pics and vids)

    Masuiyama now a restaurant but maintains heya look.
  10. Rikishi Status Natsu 2017 - Day 15 no changes

    Official Takanoiwa out. The day's slate a little colorless.
  11. BASHO TALK -- Natsu 2017 -- SPOILERS

    No idea.
  12. BASHO TALK -- Natsu 2017 -- SPOILERS

    Some of the data was supplied from the last 3 basho including this one but in Sokokurai's case Hatsu and Haru this year. The camera was installed from this year. Other data was for Hatsu and Natsu some Hatsu and Haru. At the end of the day some info very interesting some not so much, to me anyway. Hakuho's crouching position is 5.4cm lower this basho than the previous 2 and he has the fastest tachia in Makuuchi.
  13. BASHO TALK -- Natsu 2017 -- SPOILERS

    Yesterday the English coverage explained in detail about all the new data derived from a new dohyo camera that captures all relevant info and transfers it to software to draw up analysis on many aspects of the rikishi. Time on dohyo, distance behind the shikiri sen, height at tachia, force per kg at contact, speed of tachia, etc. etc.
  14. BASHO TALK -- Natsu 2017 -- SPOILERS

    Twin, cute, powerful sumo body with attitude from Takanohana beya. Attitude needs a tweek and sumo too atm.
  15. BASHO TALK -- Natsu 2017 -- SPOILERS

    And Takagenji continues his poor dohyo etiquette in not bowing again pre bout. Where the heck is Takanohana?
