  1. Abema TV sumo 2018 all basho live

    I'm watching here using some random VPN plugin in Firefox (there are lots of them - I'm using Hoxx VPN). It's Jonidan right now - super proud of myself finding the bout in SumoDB only by ear. The quality seems worst now with about 7.2k viewers
  2. These are low-res images with all kinds of artifacts. I wouldn' be so hasty to say that are fakes - Terao and Taka seems very credible
  3. Hakuho's dominance to continue?

    If we cut one foot and one hand (opposite sides, off course) of Hakuho maybe we could have some competition. But he'll get old eventually.
  4. When does an “Ozeki run” begin?

    He got a KK! And 10 wins! Off course Gaga started another Ozeki run
  5. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    With so many crazy basho I would like one or two normal-to-earth-13-2-yusho-basho, with no drama, good sumo and none going kyujo.
  6. Persistence Watch - 2017 edition

    Watching Hattorizakura fights remembers me of Gollum
  7. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2017

    God bless you man. I really love this thread each basho
  8. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    I cheer for Ama get his 10th Yusho. In this era (Hakuho's) that would be a major major feat. But, in fact, Hak's will get his 40th
  9. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Ho, it wasn't the norm. It seems to be a transactional basho, one of that kind where the old guys started to "drop the mic" and the younglings still green. That and Goeido, for sure.
  10. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    All in all it was ok. Goueido didn't get an undeserved 2nd Yusho and Ama saved the day. Aminishiki goes back to his rightful place, Kotoshogiku returns to sanyaku. And Kaisei gets 9 wins
  11. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    I do, in my little brazilian heart, remember that basho when Ama did that thing (video below). And I hope for the same (twice) tomorrow.
  12. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    That would be Kaisei for sure
  13. I couldn't follow the argument. Akebono wins his first Yusho at 200 kg and his peak seems to be about 220 kg with 4 almost consecutive Yusho. With 180 kg he got "nothing" (as if a couple kimboshi and a fast travel to sanyaku could be called "nothing"). By the numbers, his peak is about 40kg above the mentioned 180 kg.
  14. Ura - Yokozuna Bandwagon

    Oh man, the tottari on HMF was nice, very very smart. That "I was just doing my sumo" surely hides lots of studing his oponents and training
