  1. Thanks for catching that. Correction sent in.

    Sumo skills applicable on the gridiron, not in the ring
  3. Justin picked what he needed from a one hour conversation to back up the point being made but most of what I said actually took the opposite point of view. Happy to see Orora get his life in order, but if you only start using the gym and eating properly AFTER a 20 year career as a professional athlete you are in no position to criticize. There are plenty of guys who DO prepare and train properly. No one was stopping him doing the same. Then again the universe is most likely deterministic and free will is almost certainly an illusion so it probably couldn’t have been any other way.

    Not sure if the information just hasn't been updated, but those were all cancelled months ago.

    The History of the Best Rikishi of All Times (Video)

    In almost any sport you can name, the former is certainly the case but I don't see the same kind of massive jumps in technical knowledge, physicality or training methods in sumo. I think it's one of the few sports in which you could put any top rikishi from the last half century or so into the ring and have a good battle. Definitely looks like rating inflation to me.
  6. For ease of future searches can we correct the spelling / grammar errors in the title of this thread?

  8. I guess this is significant enough to merit its own thread. 28 year old Shobushi from Takadagawa Stable has died of multiple organ failure after becoming infected with the coronavirus.

    Corona and sumo

    I’ve definitely never written that. Personally I don’t expect to see ANY sport in 2020.
