  1. Following demotion, Kotooshu went 8-7, 1-9 and retired. Konishiki went 2-13... then spent another 23 basho (none higher than M3) before hanging it up. I see nothing wrong with either decision, if that's what they want.
  2. Didn't stop him from participating in the end of this basho. and who knows how well the injury will be doing by early May?
  3. -Why is using a henka on the guy voted "most likely to fall for a blatant henka" suddenly considered clever? It seems more like common sense, if you're desperate enough to care about nothing but beating 'Giku. (Although I have a hard time imagining he loses that straight up, and Kise clearly isn't fit to fight anymore, so I don't know what he could be so desperate? for.) -I have to wonder if Terunofuji would have still used the henka had Kisenosato withdrawn and completely handed the title over instead of theoretically staying in the running. -Anyone else kind of hoping for a Kisenosato henka? Probably wouldn't work too well (once, much less twice), but I doubt straight-"forward" sumo (or just walking backwards out of the ring) will do him much good regardless.
  4. Guess so, he's been doing it since the Ama days (I'm sure we've all seen this, but one more time can't hurt...)
  5. How weird would it be to go 4 Ozeki -> 2 Ozeki -> 4 Ozeki in consecutive basho?
  6. Yes, but for Hatsu '14 he missed day 15. The default loss broke the streak regardless.
  7. One could argue it was even less of a "Yusho equivalent" considering he was ranked at M9 for that basho (coming off a forced absence, iirc), and fought a fairly easy schedule for a former Sekiwake that should not have been ranked that low in normal circumstances. Were it not for Hakuho (whom he did not fight normally) also putting up 14 and winning the playoff...
  8. Try this.
  9. The Okinoumi thing must be part of that Mongolian conspiracy I keep hearing about. Thanks for greatly hindering a non-Mongolian tsuna run. I was going to vote for Gaga-chan, but had no idea everyone else would too... :-S
  10. More than usual, you mean?
  11. It was officially credited as Tsukiotoshi, but am I crazy for thinking Toyonoshima's day 7 win over Takarafuji looked like an Amiuchi?
  12. Likely just the fact that he's at a career-high rank. Previous was only M7, so he's never really faced the sanyaku like this before. Edit- He might not have fought anyone above M1 at all before this tournament.
  13. (Whatever above, it is funny...) Like this?
  14. I'm still 25 until December... Better start training (Lifting weights...) (Seriously though, I'd be surprised if I could do any better than low Jd) Edit- Never mind then
  15. Only have FOX Sports on this spot, is it normal ? No, likely needs an update. Downloading whatever the latest version was worked for me at the start of the basho. Edit- Niji seems fine on my end. I opened it well ahead of time, and haven't had any problems since.
