    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    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.

    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?

    New Juryo for Kyushu 2019

    This is where that so-called invisible line between ms5 and ms6 came to play, I see.

    A couple of notes: Takakeisho might have missed out on being the first "ozekiwake" to take a yusho outright, but he's still the one who took the most wins ever from that position - and the first to earn a doten-yusho.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2019

    I would expect incumbent Takayasu to be above Takakeisho. Ozekiwake or not, Keisho is still officially a new promotee. But then again I might be the worst at GTB.

    Ironically every single Mongolian non-sekitori rikishi (except kyujo Arawashi) made KK.

    Underrated moment of senshuraku for me: Kotoshogiku's dameoshi on Tochiozan. Even the most gentle man has enough at some point.

    Yeah, I noticed it too. He surely enjoyed that win! Another remark is that both Tochinoshin and Mitakeumi reacted the same way to Inosuke's matta call, and that's about as close as they could get to "What the f#($?". These's been about 10 tachiai in this whole basho that could have used a matta, and now we got that.

    It was, I didn't deny it. It's just that 2010-Kotoshogiku would definitely chug 2019-Enho out of the dohyo in a single breath if the small man went forward for the mawashi on tachiai like he did yesterday. It's still impressive that Enho can pull those technical moves, but the fact he was enabled to do so in the first place doesn't bode well for Giku. And I also agree with other comments in here which say Kotoshogiku has had bad basho recently and recovered somewhat from them. It might happen again, yes, but its likelihood decreases every month. This is coming from someone who was extremely happy back in the day when Giku was the one to break the Japanese duck instead of Kisenosato.

    Enho's yorikiri on Kotoshogiku is a much bigger reflection of the latter's physical deterioration than the former's skill.

    Takayasu is also fairly younger than the rest of the bunch. Literally the only one on his 20s. If he can recover and find his ozeki run form, he might have a blessed chance against opposition that's either unexperienced or old & busted up.
