    Thanks, I missed that on the chart.

    At 1-3-7 from M2, what does Aoiyama need to keep from dropping to Juryo, or is it already too late?
  5. Sansho Speculation

    The win over Harumafuji was a fluke and also Harumafuji has not been himself. He'll get little to no credit there. I'm not completely sold on him getting his KK either. We also have to see if his former rank is held against him (as in "He's supposed to get those wins. Easily.")

    Thank you Doitsuyama

  8. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    That Hattorizakura match is not what I described but I suspect it's what I meant. Thanks to all for the links. The Maeta match, and the similar one a couple days after made me angry. I hope the NSK has learned that it's ok to help the guy and not just sit there watching him bleed onto the dohyo.
  9. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    I always smile at the matches where one of the contestants is a skinny kid who bounces off his opponent. There was one a couple years or so back where the kid kept falling on his backside at tachiai and the gyoji kept having them line up and start over again and again. You had to give it to the kid for how he kept trying, but he was way outside his weight class (figuratively and literally)

    Day 9 Sd1w MASUTOO (1-3) Jd46w ZENDAISHO (2-2) Jk17e DAISHIRYU (1-3) are all withdrawing. What was that I said about rikishi coming back?
  11. Did you know that when you Google "Vincent Divoux" and click to see the images that are returned, among the photos is one named "Asahosakari". I guess he's Vincent Divoux in disguise! OK ok, being serious here. Is anyone looking at this list? https://wikivisually.com/wiki/User:Miwasatoshi/List_of_non-Japanese_sumo_wrestlers
  12. Help me please! Fujisan in hospital

    Unfortunately, this is one of those things where doing extra isn't necessarily for the best. So Take It Easy, Fujisan! Best wishes for continued healing!
  13. Rikishi Status Aki 2017 - Day 13 w/d & return

    Day 8 M2w AOIYAMA (absent from day 1) returns. Pointing out the obvious - although this is a normal part of a basho, as we enter the 2nd half of the basho we are likely to see more rikishi returning than withdrawing from this point on.
  14. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Does the oyakata makes more money if a rikishi is active in a basho than if he isn't?
  15. Rikishi Status Aki 2017 - Day 13 w/d & return

    Takanohana did take off a whole year (7 basho to be exact), even went to France for surgery to get his knees fixed. Of course he was a yokozuna. And it didn't really work out well in the end. He 12-3J on his return, was out for the next basho, and got to 4-4 in the one after that before retiring mid-basho. But speaking of injury, Aoiyama will be back on day 8. He gets to face Harumafuji.
