    ^I think he’ll enter because of your listen reasons, but go kyūjō fairly soon.

    Hakuho Injures Arm Haru Basho 2019

    ^Is it really “bend the arm”? I thought he had no problem doing that, rather stretching it is…

    Would take too much time? Who does he think he is, an ōzeki? He can take all the time off he wants. I’m scared we’ll see him join next tournament and end his career.

    I also misread it as Aminishiki for a moment. Assume you meant that.

    Hakuho Injures Arm Haru Basho 2019

    I don’t like this. I thought Hakuhō would be smart enough to get all necessary treatment ASAP and rest as much as needed, especially after the Kisenosato fiasco. What is he doing? I’m relieved the injury doesn’t seem to be career-ending like Kisenosato’s, but he needs to get treated and take off the whole year if needed. As far as the guy saying Hakuhō faked the injury– obviously the lack of “likes” on the post shows what the forum thinks of it, and I (as mentioned by others) would rather ignore such preposterous claims than clutter the forum with arguments.

    I like how Hakuhō literally won every match on the belt since I posted I missed his belt skills. Fantastic basho for a lot of guys I like, Hakuhō, Aoiyama, Kotoshōgiku, Ichinojō, even Gōeidō A showed up. I really hope Hakuhō’s injury is nothing serious even though it looks pretty bad, I get the feeling we won’t see him in 2 months. Hopefully it’s recoverable even if it takes time.

    Most rikishi are one-dimensional, there’s nothing wrong with that. Hakuhō–Takakeishō looked brutal. Some of those slaps Hakuhō was throwing looked as bad as a punch. I’m impressed with Takakeishō’s resilience.

    I’m so mad they didn’t make Takakeishō an ōzeki. He clearly deserves it. I don’t understand Ichinojō at all. He’s saying his problems were concentration and now he’s better at it through archery, but it never looked like that was the problem. It looked like he never cared to try hard enough, as if he were injured. That’s not concentration, that’s motivation. I hope his form continues as he’s clearly easily ōzeki material with that body, but it makes no sense to me how “concentration” would suddenly make him better.

    Not sure why I only noticed now, but why does Kakuryū do that hand thing when accepting the envelopes differently from everybody else? It’s normally left, right, center; but he does right, left, center.

    Man, I miss belt-man Hakuhō… is it his injured elbows that don’t allow him to go for the belt anymore?

    Seen it enough times to have gotten annoying– it’s “mukiryoku” not “mukyrioku”. Too lazy to quote.

    What are you talking about? That’s gonna be Tamawashi.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Hakuhō out?!? I wasn’t expecting that… I assume his big toe is still annoying him? I’m sad. Mitakeumi is a complete idiot if he’s not pulling out. It has been mentioned a little but not much, Takakeishō is suddenly a beast after transferring heya. Anyone know why? Maybe different training, diet or something? Has the new heya improved him, or is it just coincidence? Tamawashi looked like an ōzeki a while back and he seems back to form this basho. Regardless of who takes the yūshō between him and Takakeishō, I’m not complaining.

    Never seen that changing of the grip move the gyōji made Enhō do in my over 6 years of watching. I thought the rules only said that it’s the front you can’t grip, not the back?
