    Probably because Ichinojō isn’t the greatest rikishi of all time. lol I was simply explaining why Hakuhō lost. It’s the first basho in his career where he’s sporting double elbow supporters– he’s at his most broken yet. His career might not last much longer. You could tell during the bout that Hakuhō tried using his right (IIRC) to break Ichinojō’s grip but just couldn’t muster enough strength to do so. I’m not trying to take anything away from Ichinojō, I’m simply giving a technical explanation of the bout. I don’t know why you’re all attacking me as if I said some blasphemy against Ichinojō. If angry Ichinojō was his default state (healthy back? who knows), he’d easily be yokozuna, we all know he’s good when he wants to be.

    He’s too injured to muster the strength to counter Ichinojō’s size. Good win by Ichinojō, but it wouldn’t have happened against a not-as-injured Hakuhō. It’s nice to see Kakuryū doing so well.

    I’m not sure what happened but he’s definitely gone over the top now. Sad for Tomokaze losing, hopefully he’ll keep the kachikoshi streak alive nonetheless. Enhō is a treat. Hakuhō–Aoiyama niramiai was weird. Hakuhō had more trouble with the bouth than I expected, not that I have a great memory of it but I think he usually just grabbed the belt at tachiai and threw Aoiyama easily in the past.

    That was a while ago, and I applauded him back then. Things have changed. Of course there isn’t absolute proof.

    That matters how? He got back to ōzeki with a stolen win and a fusenshō, while on PEDs.

    Tochinoshin is a fraud. He shouldn’t be ōzeki.

    I don’t know what that means but he looks like some random bum… lol. Kinda weird. If you showed me this picture and told me that was a yokozuna I wouldn’t believe it.

    When did I hear this before? My main issue with Hakuhō is his injury. Will he be able to come back at 100%? If not, he’ll obviously not dominate as much.

    I never said I was shocked.

    1. It is of no fault of Kakuryū that the judging of Tochinoshin’s match was wrong(and was it?). 2. I’ve said previously I didn’t care about that Tochinoshin loss because: 1. I saw his heel out 2. I saw him pull on the oichō-mage (hansoku). Tochinoshin taking his “rage” out on Kakuryū is disgusting to me. Edit: Let’s not forget Tochinoshin got a free win. I am appalled by how so many people can so readily excuse his henka, to be honest.

    That’s pretty nitpicky isn’t it? Just bad English from my part, but you get what I mean. Are you serious? Tochinoshin’s ruined the yūshō race. Sad for Enhō not getting kachikoshi. But it’s not like he’ll go down to Jūryō, right?

    I agree. Everybody in this forum seems to love the underdogs, but personally I just see bad sumō. I love Hakuhō and enjoyed watching him dominate a lot– not as much in recent years as his skill has deteriorated a lot even when he goes 15–0. Anyway, I’m happy for Asanoyama, always thought he could be a good rikishi but this is the first time he really shows it. Hope he keeps form.

    I am disgusted at Tochinoshin.

    No. I saw sand shoot up just after the heel went up and the sagari hit the sand. I could be wrong, but it’s not the sagari I saw.

    I thought you could clearly see sand shoot up from Tochinoshin’s heel in the HD video. I also thought he had some of a hansoku going on there, so I’m not really that mad about the loss.
