    Those 17 days make it 91 jungyo days this year. The last time of more than 90 days in one year (which is the amount of hon-basho days) were 93 days in 1992 - at the Waka-Taka ozumo boom http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20180921/sum18092119300013-n1.html

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2018

    If Kotoyuki wins tomorrow and nobody HAS to be promoted by the numbers for his spot, there is the faint possibility that he stays in makuuchi - I'd say he goes down for Yago, but not for Daishoho, Chiyomaru could go down first as w14 with 9 losses

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    This happens every basho for the day 15 torikumi - to allow for as many meaningful torikumi as possible, in which rikishi don't tend to go easy to help the kachi-koshi of others - but the exact time of publishing them might differ from basho to basho

    Kensho Aki 2018

    The ordinary limit of 50 kensho was on Hakuho-Goeido - as again without Morinaga-sho. No reason to place 61(57+) on Goeido-Kisenosato, so Hakuho is out of reach now and the top 3 won't change. Ikioi as the big kensho magnet at last made it into the rankings, but may well drop out again in the end: Kotoshogiku winning to get the kachi-koshi against Nishikigi is likely, Ikioi against Chiyotairyu not quite so Day 14 354: Hakuho 297: Kisenosato 190: Kakuryu 115: Goeido 100: Takayasu 96: Mitakeumi 60: Chiyotairyu 57: Tochinoshin 45: Ryuden 42: Ikioi 42: Kotoshogiku

    2018 All-Japan Corporate Championship

    The term BusinessPeople sumo is not a translation of jitsugyodan sumo - they evaded to think about that apparently - it is that of the common term for it - 社会人 Shakaijin sumo, which would be much better for general understanding, but is not the official term. BusinessPeople sumo maybe sums it up better than corporate sumo, but it as an awfully clumsy term, as opposed to the Japanese one.

    2018 All-Japan Corporate Championship

    Corporate is simply used as a standard translation of jitsugyodan Universities are houjin and not kaisha, and local governments can have staff organized in a houjin they create. I was particularly thinking of houjin when I used corporate - business tends to have the touch of kaisha, which is completely wrong in this case. For me it seems like that it is you who is confusing corporation and company - corporation as houjin has a much broader meaning

    2018 All-Japan Corporate Championship

    I call that only corporate sumo, I don't like the clumsy term of business people sumo that is the official title for 実業団 jitsugyodan sumo, e.g. http://wbpf-sumou.jp/sumo/qanda.html. (likely because they never cared for a good English term) With that term as well you'd wonder about the majority being staff of universities and local governments which take part along with company teams (Aisin usually wins though). Had it not such minor attention to it, we should start to get used to call it by the Japanese term jitsugyo(u)dan sumo.
