    Releasing this without official confirmation is concerning. If a rikishi says he is going to retire to a media source there is a precedent where they have been stopped from competing straight away.

    125 years ago with one Y and one O on banzuke. Now a tournament with S the highest competing.
  5. This has become an issue for a long time. NHK World Premium provides programming of NHK to various providers in different parts of the world. Unfortunately not all jurisdictions show the sumo. Some show in Japanese or English, some just Japanese or some a digest in Japanese only. Depends where you are. This can be checked by logging on to NHK World Premium website and follow the directions to see what your regional provider shows. NHK World of course has the 4 days of live sumo, days 1,8, 14 and 15 but not all bouts. Then there is the highlights package of all bouts on NHK World 4 times a day the day after live sumo. NHK World does take notice of how much interest is in their programs and just maybe can be persuaded to show every day live. If enough people show their interest it may impact NHK World management on a decision to expand, if possible, their live sumo coverage to the world. This would be English only. Following is the link that could affect their decision if enough people participate. Spread the word to see if it will have some impact. https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/contact/

    Sumo Reference Updates

    We have had covid withdrawals over the last few years and I presume some matchups where both men are kyujo the next day. How is that displayed on database? Trying to find when the last time it happened when both rikishi were injured and could not fight the next day.
