  1. And that, my friends, is the type of analysis you won't get anywhere else but here!
  2. The last 3 cases of 13-2 at J11 ended up in Makuuchi. I know history is not the only consideration...
  3. I'm expecting a Shimanoumi for Chiyoshoma exchange. Yutakayama will benefit from the return of M17e. Also, there are going to be a lot of new eager young faces at the top of Makushita next basho!
  4. This has probably almost certainly been asked/answered elsewhere, but if Takakeisho is promoted to ozeki after this basho, how will he rank among youngest ozeki promotees?

    Future is bright (U20 rikishi)

    The "Wall" has also been on hiatus for some time...

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    So I'm waiting for the "I survived Hatsu 2019" T-shirts...

    Salary raise

    That is a pretty slim allowance, as I have heard -- first time I've seen actual figures. Thanks for the info!

    Salary raise

    Bimonthly, as in every 2 months, or semimonthly = twice a month?
  9. Day 14 -- it threw me off for a minute
  10. How about an article specifically about Toyonoshima with the above in mind? That way there is a happy ending!

    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    If there were power rankings for sumo, I think Takakeisho and my long-time favorite Tochiozan would be on top right now, which would go under the category of "whodathunkit?"

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2018

    Yes - underdemotion has been the trend for resolving banzuke difficulties for quite some time. This is true within the ranks of a given division also.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2018

    I'm not sure what to think about the possibility of Miyogiryu returning to the joi in Nov after a 2-year absence -- especially not knowing any reason for his absence in the first place. Just wondering what anyone else might know/think about that.

    New Juryo for Aki 2018

    While I am excited about Jokoryu's return, I have low expectations. Realistically he will probably MK and be back in Makushita in Nov. Here's hoping he will make the most of this opportunity though!
