  1. Harumafuji scandal

    Interesting column, you make very good points about the true sumo lifestyle. I'd be interested to know where you think ex-Kotosho is headed on the oyakata scale. I was surprised at how readable this is from the photo. Which paper is this?
  2. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    I haven't seen anyone parading around with a torn pec on display, but I once saw an American football game during which one of the players tore/ruptured a bicep. OMG that was one of the strangest, most painful looking things I've ever soon seen. The muscle "retracted" in opposite directions from where it tore. There was this huge ball bulging out of his arm. I think he had surgery that night or the next day.
  3. Harumafuji scandal

    Takanohana (head of office) - Suspended from winter jungyo for #1 not taking care of rikishi, #2 telling lies about what happened and his own actions Tamanoi (deputy head of office) - Suspended for winter jungyo for not knowing what Takanohana was doing I'm guessing they'll lose some amount of income due to the suspension, perhaps shuffled to other committees during the next reorganization? Better hurry and get your plans made guys - Winter Jungyo begins in only 2 weeks! He had a choice of what to report - It was either "fell down the stairs" or "walked into a door". Maybe there weren't any doors around to talk into? I wonder what the wives of the various idiots involved really think of all this.
  4. Day 9 Two rikishi are withdrawing: Sd77e TOHO (1-3) Jk17e DAISHIRYU (1-3, fusen 8) And one more is returning: JK22e SHIMIZU (0-2-2, absent from day 5)
  5. Videos -Kyushu 2017- Promo and Days 1-9

    They are very enthusiastic about what they are doing. Bonus points to the gyoji for indicating the winner while still getting back on his feet. I also liked the slight adjustment of his headgear

  9. Harumafuji Intai Speculation

    Here's the link to the other thread - it was spun off of the kyujo thread. Maybe the mods can merge this thread with that new thread too?

    Is ISP not having picks displayed related to this?
