    Just out of curiosity: Why are parts of the last picture blurred out?

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    No one here with reasonable experience would ever state such a thing. Because there is NO RULE for ozeki promotions. They do it with 32 wins (Kisenosato) and deny it with 34 wins (Miyabiyama). And they have their reasons for every case. This famous "rule-of-thumb" of 33 wins over 3 bashos is just a unspecific guideline to indicate when they possibly start to think about a promotion or not.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I am really puzzled by those statements. Nothing personal, but when I read "he is only 22" there is only one thought in my head: all the great sumotori were already yokozuna at that age and there were no discussion about "not being ready for the responsibilities or pressures" of that rank.

    Acceptable Ozeki Record?

    5 Yusho.

    Acceptable Ozeki Record?

    No, as there is no "ozeki deliberation council" meeting after every tournament to comment on "stuff". A yokozuna with 8-7 multiple times will not get away as his performance is publicly judged. There are also no "off-dohyo" requirements for ozeki. Ozeki is just a rank with its own hurdle to get there. But beside this, it is a normal rank and thus 8 wins is sufficient.

    Acceptable Ozeki Record?

    Easy answer: it's eight wins. Everything else is just fan chatter.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Kyushu 2018

    Regadring the Hatsu banzuke: Who will be Y1e? I wonder if they do not change the order of our three kyujo-yokozuna on the banzuke or if the "at-least-he-tried-five-times" Kisenosato will be on top?

    Harumafuji danpatsushiki

    Still one of the best performed dohyo-iri of the last decades. (IMHO)
