    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Somewhat like Kaisei - in a discussion group here in Brazil I stated the same. The gentle giant is nearing intai

    Bout-Length Kyushu 2021

    An average of 86s from the six first Takayasu's bouts! It remembers me from Terunofuji first time as Makuuchi with long bouts with kimedashi finish

    Hakuho retires

    There's a expression for this photo in Portuguese: "cara de bunda" (something alike but not exactly "assface"). It's a face os forced smile in a situation where you would not smile at all.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Not Yokozuna Sumo - not by Hakuho. Nor Kachiage or Nodowa.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    He's not human - he's a Yokozuna. He isn't just a "professional athlete" and sumo isn't only a "sport". The elbows and slaps in the tachiai are also disrespectful (and that bazai! chant).

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    What's the chance of Teru getting The Rope? I hope it was a done deal - a Y and J (being a Y contender until the end) as Ozeki and Y, J, D before that.

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    What I can say? It was an ugly fight. Ugliness is somewhat subjective to each sport, but I think that after 10y I'm starting to understand "not yokozuna sumo". In football a goal is a goal, but a goal made using the shoulders or even arms to deslocate other players ou even a legal "cart behind" is uglier than one made with class and jinga. After the first slap the fight grow cold to me and I heartly desired for a Terunofuji win.

    An asshidashi?

    Nagoya Basho 2021

    Mostly because of the "International Olympic Committee" (and all the money from the sponsros) - the Tokyo city has no power to suspend the Olympics by itself.

    Bout-Length Nagoya 2021

    so far, 01.1s M12e Tochinoshin (1-4) tsukiotoshi M10w Terutsuyoshi (1-4) 69.1s M8e Takarafuji (3-2) tsukiotoshi M9w Shimanoumi (2-3) are the two extremes

    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    Hakuho, Chiyonofuji, Haramafuji

    YDC meeting after Haru 2021

    Hakuho wants to do the dohyo-iri in the Olympics and the Kyokai needs a Yokozuna to do the dohyo-iri in the Olympics. So I believe an Intai for him after Nagoya and before Aki.

    March basho 2021

    I've been here in the forum for about 8 and half years by now - I think I am Sandanme by now Too much older members right now I remember 2014 more os less, when Teru was not sanyaku yet, we're all talking about the possible 32th basho from Hakuho and I said something like "Teru can't rely only in strength" - he was getting some longish bouts giving morosashi and wining by kimedashi. He now appears much more... round? Smart? Better? this time. I'm glad to see him in this form.

    Yomiuri sumo survey

    Tell me wrong, but Sumo is a Japanese thing with more than "contact fights" involved (culture, religion). Does the Kyokai identified any ploblems? If not, no problem will be addresed. We're mostly strangers and aliens to this "sport".

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    Yes - I think they'll make him get double digits in the next two basho. Something around 43+ wins in 4 basho. Takakeisho made 42 in 4 basho in sanyaku until promotion. If I had the query-fu I would like to research the promotion criteria used for former repromotion to Ozeki (besides the direct 10 wins from S)

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    I dont think they will promote Teru with a 33 this time, maybe 4 basho above 10 wins? I hope that he gets 11 wins
