    That Koike kid seriously looks like he was a bully on his school times...

    Nagoya 2013 Banzuke

    I love how Shohozan's 10-5 K from M2 got him into K1w... But a 8-7 from M5 was worthy of a K1e promotion!

    Natsu 2013 new recruits

    I've seen his full name given as Paulo (or Paolo?) Shingo Yato, and he supposedly was the finalist in some Brazilian or South American sumo tournament last year...couldn't find anything on a quick search though. More likely Paulo (Portuguese version) than Paolo (Italian version) since Brazil speak a kind of Portuguese.

    Promotion/Demotion discussion Natsu 2013

    I think this is the most appropriate place to state one doubt of mine... I don't know how to explain it without practical exampling, so I'll do it. There's a Rikishi A from a lower division - goes on to a great start and is on a 5-0 and a yusho fighting spot. However, he falls on the last hurdles and ends up 5-2. Then there's Rikishi B who is close to A on the banzuke. He starts awfully and goes 0-2. However, he picks his game up and eventually goes on a winning streak to the end until his score finishes a 5-2. My question; are they viewed equally on promotion matters? Or does Rikishi A have some priority on his climb up the ranks because he was among the frontrunners for a longer time thus having to face supposedly more competitive opponents? It would be deserved. I haven't followed sumo for that long.. I know banzuke-making is mostly mathematical but there's a human element to it. I just don't know to what extent exactly.

    Juryo Promotions - 2013 Nagoya

    On the other side of the token, there was an easy promotion a while ago when Sokokurai was first eliminated. Well... Actually, tons of them. But that's a whole different story. I prefer this kind of extensive juryo demotions. I agree with both krindel and shumitto, who've mentioned it increases motivation for both bottom juryo (avoiding losses not to get demoted) and top makushita (knowing they are likely to be promoted with a good result). Besides, I'm all for giving chances to more people on more situations

    That would be a very henkaracterist sanyaku setup, definitely. Where's a sekiwake Aran when we need him?

    Natsu Basho 2013 discussion thread

    Tsuna will only bring tons of pressure onto Kisenosato that's going to make him crumble. It'd be different with a yusho, the margin would be better and it'd leave no doubt. The feeling gets much stronger if you're overplayed (thus creating higher expectations than what facts would appear) and the weight on his matta-prone shoulders will be almost intolerable.

    Promotion/Demotion discussion Natsu 2013

    I am actually cheering for Endo to get the nod. As you said, it'd envolve some overdemotion, but hey... The man is a 5-2 from Ms3 with a couple of victorious juryo visits. He deserves it. Hopefully he'd get ahead of a 4-3 Yoshiazuma on the order. I have stated my preference on watching Kotooshu grapple on life without ozeki benefits, but on the other hand I feel for Goeido who'd get demoted for sure if that happens. Wakanosato was on the same spot 10 years ago. Sekiwake for ages, flirting on a possible ozeki promotion and keeping his game up for a long time, then finally there comes a 6-9 and it's Game Over. It's dang unfair.

    Natsu Basho 2013 discussion thread

    Like this one? As a Sekiwake, he will essentially meet exactly the same guys, except in a different order. I am aware of that. But he'd be kicked out of his famous vicious cicle that involves a seemingly eternal spate of kadoban and 8-7 alternatedly, and as a sekiwake he wouldn't have a safe back anymore. One of his early kyujo or lousy score, and it'd be down to the wilderness for him. That's more what I mean, expecting him to fall down there somewhen. Not immediately. But what if he got demoted indeed, then happened to muster those said 10 wins in July? Now that's something no-one predicts.

    Promotion/Demotion discussion Natsu 2013

    At this point we can safely assume Myogiryu is a lock-on sekiwake for the next banzuke, even if Kotooshu is demoted. He won't be behind a possible 7-8 Goeido on the pecking order.
