    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2021

    Jumping out of the spoiler talk - which, by the way, reminds me of the people who stuck their heads out of a 100mph train's window, earned some head injuries for their troubles and decided to sue the trainline... I am overjoyed that Murata is making it. He won a fan for life after his treatment of Shonanzakura on their Ryuden bout a while ago. Sure, he trucked the lad, but he immediately reacted as if he was both surprised at the outcome and concerned with him.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2021

    I might jump ship to the non-haridashi hype train if it means Chiyonokuni has a higher chance of makujiri'ng his way back to the makuuchi section of the banzuke, honestly. I hadn't considered that.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2021

    Banzuke making is my area of least expertise here, but... Would you say the fact we know Asanoyama isn't competing at all, is likely to influence the decision? As in, put him as haridashi since there's be a de facto gap in the titled ranks.

    Hokuseiho - Shot at a record?

    The sumo version of "brace for impact". This matchup against Ishizaki for the yusho is going to be a very intriguing one.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    At the risk of going overly anatomical and sullying your fine joke, a lot of padding can absorb blunt impacts, but it won't help when there's so much evenly spread pressure applied on it!

    Ex-Taka-twins activities

    He was actually brave, going from pouncing on puroresu guys (and a geriatric Minowaman who's definitely not going to have a healthy life as a senior) straight to facing the finest that Japanese heavyweight MMA has to offer. Wonder what'll happen from here.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Ichinojo 5-3 after finishing his tour of the titled ranks. Impressive and hopefully on course for at least a prize.

    For some people...

    I'm afraid the odds of their being bots are pretty high. Stay tuned - random scamming threads in 3... 2...

    Kaisho, of all people, stopped Abi's undefeated streak upon his return at 21. Fun. Happy for him.

    sumo jokes/memes

    Someone with 145 IQ wouldn't use the "it's" contraction as a possessive pronoun, not even if English was their 4th language. Void.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Agreed. Hakuho has always taken pleasure at beating people at their own games to show them who's boss. Hardly hinkaku at best, but entertaining for sure.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    I want to know what happened in Tobizaru's mind that made him snap and suddenly decide that jumping on migi-yotsu was a good idea after spending 2 minutes enraging the bull in a standoff. Might as well have worn a red mawashi for this one.

    Hokuseiho - Shot at a record?

    Kagayaki 2.0 confirmed.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    By banzuke-gai, I'm sure you mean any 0-0-6 jonokuchi - as bg rikishi are not taking part under any circumstance - and there is a pretty good candidate for a Ryuden bout. Kagamio.

    Nagoya 2021 kyujo list

    I promise this will be my only offtopic comment here regarding this matter, but my money is that it was Kotoyuki's intai from that spot in the banzuke. The DB saw it as a Sokokurai / Hoshikaze situation.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Ohata is now in the banzuke page and the correct upper makushita torikumi have returned. Thanks a lot for your hard work! EDIT: I'm guessing this might have been caused by Kotoyuki's intai from that position in the banzuke?

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    This was at least three times as blatant as Terunofuji's on Myogiryu last time.

    Ridiculous Predictions Nagoya 2021

    If 9 people get diagnosed / quarantined less than 48h before their bout with Hakuho, I dare say a few people will be suspicious!

    Preparations of the Y/Os - Nagoya 2021

    For what it's worth, I've stopped following Herouth after she reacted angrily / offensively out of nowhere to a few innocuous replies I'd sent her. So yeah, I'm on team 'social media is bad'... Howeeeeever, I've only got good things to say about SumoSoul. Lovely accounts to follow and interact with.

    It hasn't really changed that much.

    If I somehow make the top 100, it'll be thanks solely to that thread.

    Nagoya Yusho Predictions?

    Kotoeko on the yusho race on his likely joi debut? He'd sweep up all 3 prizes.

    The most remarkable thing in your prediction? 9 maegashira went 7-8 on the previous basho. You kept all 9 on the same exact spot.

    Which didn't go all that well, if I recall correctly. 99 to 118! It seems that the trick is leaving it on those cliffhanger numbers, just on verge of a milestone. One to go for #100! One to go for the all-time high! One to go for #50! People are attracted to those like magnets. It's either that, or the "last day!" warning. Or both.

    I think I entered one basho in the meantime, but it seems like I've used a different username/email combination then. Regardless, eight years? Wow, thanks for the bit of trivia. Back to when Hakuho was in his 20s. I think that, back then, I didn't even know that Y/O were sorted by their result on the previous basho...
