    Latest kabu-babu changes

    Is there any info about Kaisei having a kabu?
  2. I think both conclusions may be right. He was most effective in a weight that his body couldn't support for long/heal properly. Aoiyama seems to be a similar rikishi: he has a very thin line of weigth where is most effective. A little above? He gets hurt or slow. A little below? Meh, just a regular M10 rikishi

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    This basho was the saddest in a long time. I have a hunch that after the Olympics we'll lose both Yokozuna.

    It looks good for Endo. Second week should be easier than first, and he did really good so far

    I envy your optimism. Right now I only see bad sumo

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    What a weird basho. I only watch sumo for 8y (exactly, since Kaisei debut in Makuuchi - Natsu 2011) and I find this "anybody-can-get-the-yusho" kinda sad and underwhelming. I miss the technical prowess of the sekitori from Hakuho era. They do not get many Yusho but it seemed to me we had better fights - even now Hakuho in -end-of-career is better than anybody else by a kilometer. The Ozeki are a joke.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2019

    None, I think. Absolutely no need for a third Sekiwake with Tochinoshin going down and Takakeisho going up

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Hakuho needs some real competition. He looks bored and annoyed in the Takarafuji's bout.

    Same here. I think Takakeisho is done even winning tomorrow. He got a few very ugly losses
