    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Really? That couldn't have a stronger smell of sour grapes. He was manhandled as hard as I've ever seen him.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I was only half joking in a previous comment where I feel officialdom is as rough on poor Tsurugisho as other rikishi are. Those matta were hard to watch.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Good news from lower makushita: Ryuko, who was apparently injured and also clearly psychologically affected from directly causing Aminishiki's retirement, nailed a KK within 4 bouts from ms35.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    He's doing very well, but I find it extremely hard to cheer for Tokushoryu after his extra shove on a fallen Kotoyuki when the latter's knee had clearly snapped. (How long ago was this, even?)

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Great post! Murata's bout from 0-0-6 in jonokuchi - essentially just to prevent him from going maezumo - was the stuff of legends and the best possible kickstarter of all time OK, so now.. I'm sad that Tsurugisho might be injured. The man has been getting a lot of dubious bout decisions and facial reconstruction jobs since he arrived to makuuchi and now this...

    Hakuho Applying for Japanese Citizenship

    How about tsukebito though? :P Would this "can't say" be like "I don't know" or more like "I'd rather not say that publicly"?

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2019

    I hope this guy breaks the record, it was heartbreaking back then.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    Would a 12-3 junyusho ordinarily count as such? Not taking external factors into consideration.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    Is it just me or is Asanoyama silently in an unlikely ozeki run? 20 wins so far in these basho as either joi or sanyaku, he needs 13 more in the next 15+2 bouts to get those 33.

    That is an opinion based purely on nipples, isn't it?

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    2 days in and no-one in sanyaku won both matches on the clay. (Asanoyama is the sole 2-0 representative and that was aided by a fusensho).

    New Takanofuji Scandal

    I know I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to sumo life, but those two points above go a long way to explain why bullying remains part of sumo in this day and age.

    New Takanofuji Scandal

    I might have exaggerated a bit with "shake the entire thing". :P It's more like that the public are going to take a closer look at kyokai's movements for the upcoming months if a shitstorm is born out of this.

    New Takanofuji Scandal

    That indirectly confirms my rhetorical question either way. Even so, this is not going to be pretty. He'll be making enough of a fuss to shake the entire thing. Up until a few years ago I believe he'd just disgrace himself to a ridiculous level, but nowadays all that press coverage might force the kyokai to stiffen up again.

    New Takanofuji Scandal

    Why bother with decency if it's not going to help you, am I right? Way to prove it's all an act. This guy isn't the sharpest tool, is he?
