    Aki 2022 discussion (results)

    It's easy to forget that COVID has a range of effects/damages from none to long term disability.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho Talk, Nagoya 2022

    Along with all the other distortions, many bouts were between rikishi much farther apart in rank than normal - thus advantaging the high ranked and disadvantaging the lower ranked. I hope that sense rather than formula is applied to this mess.

    Rikishi Status - 2022 Nagoya Basho

    I would hope they are testing everyone every day

    Natsu 2022 Discussion Thread - here be spoilers

    That move hooked me on Chiyonofuji. Thanks for the memory.

    Haru 2022 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    I am also a bit confused. kinboshi - gold start in Japanese - is what I though was said of defeating a Yokozuna. ginboshi might be read as silver star. But I really don't know what I'm talking about

    Haru 2022 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    Any news about Ōnaruto Oyakata (former Dejima) who one of my favorites back then. Akua fell on him.

    Rikishi Status - 2022 Hatsu Basho

    It's my fault, I entered the Torch contest for the first time and guess who my rikishi is!

    Hakuhou caught watching Judo

    But at least ink was not spilled.
  9. Maybe this has already been figured out - do the six bashos include dropping out of Natsu? or are they the next six?
  10. 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.
  11. Forgive my ignorance. Will Asanoyama actually appear on the Banzuke for each Basho but then never be scheduled for a bout.?
  12. Thank you for the memories. For some reason the image of Dejima blasting across the Dohyo stayed with me for the whole song.
  13. 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?
