    Hakuhou caught watching Judo

    But at least ink was not spilled.

    Asanoyama caught violating COVID restrictions

    Maybe this has already been figured out - do the six bashos include dropping out of Natsu? or are they the next six?

    Asanoyama caught violating COVID restrictions

    that's what's confusing me. what does it mean to "take up a Sekiwake ... slot" (actually Ozeki first - he's Kadoban). What will the Banzuke look like? In May Hakuho was on the Banzuke but I don't remember when he went kyujo.

    Forgive my ignorance. Will Asanoyama actually appear on the Banzuke for each Basho but then never be scheduled for a bout.?
  5. Thank you for the memories. For some reason the image of Dejima blasting across the Dohyo stayed with me for the whole song.
  6. It was clearly time - but he might of stayed a bit longer it there was a rational method for recovery from a serious injury. I think this is starting to really hurt the quality of Sumo.

    Preparations of the Y/O- November 2020

    I've always felt the opposite. To avoid gaming the system, the rules make it difficult for anyone but a Yokozuna to recover from injury because of dramatic loss of rank. I think any Rickshi should be able to skip at least one Basho without serious loss of rank, maybe two or more based on medical evaluation. In the past, the Kyujo system got gamed by Rikshi leaving a basho when they were doing poorly, and the baby got tossed with the bathwater.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Was there ever a Yokozuna who couldn't fight on the belt and wasn't humongous?

    Banzuke for Haru 2020

    Wandering off topic. I recently heard a sports commentator talking about baseball injuries. He observed that the current strength training that has changed the game is at the cost of limberness, and may be contributing to the high injury rates. I wonder is this is true in Sumo. Have injuries gone up over the years?

    Talk about brain cells! It took me a ridiculously long time to work out that if the previous records of the first match added to 13 this must be day fourtieen. Duh.
