    Next Yokozuna??????

    Well, both of them only needed only 9/10 basho to achieve their juryo promotion, but Hoshoryu sure had bigger trouble in Makushita (30-19 record, only one 6-1 in lower Makushita), compared to Takahanda (17-4, two Makushita yusho). And then the biggest difference is Hoshoryu entering at the rather mature age of 18 (in fact close to 19), while Takahanada was only 15. You could find dozens of comparable fast rises to Juryo (even if you only want to look at very very recent examples), some of them leading to greatness, others to nothing. Too early to tell.

    New Takanofuji Scandal

    Not sure about synchronzied swimming, but for what I know I do not think Sumo fares much better bullying-wise compared to some ballet schools, for example.. On the other hand, times are changing, in some regions slower than in others. Good to see that Sumo is keeping track. And besides I guess it is more difficult to hush things up nowadays with smart phones everywhere and Internet than it was in the past.

    Congrats, Tenshinhan, on a well-deserved promotion! And thanks to Wakatake for all his efforts. One thought: As the banzuke seems to become a bit top-heavy, you may need to alter the promotion guidelines for Ozeki: 33 wins seems to be too easy, maybe add the requirement of one yusho in three basho. In fact, you are getting promoted with the worst (!) record of all active players (and the same might happen to chishafuwaku next basho). Anyway, hoping more players will join soon!

    I just had the stangest of déjà vu! Funny how things come back to you after over 14 years... But see Doitsuyama's answer in that thread..

    21 Aki 19, The Results

    Wow, no action after day 9? Well, in this case I won't complain! :) It seems I never won two yusho in a year since 2005; thanks, Asojima and Profomisakari for making sure 21 existed that long!

    I forgot to make my picks yesterday - now I can't enter the sumogames-games because I only get the "Sorry you missed the deadline" page (Toto, TTT, ISP; Bench is not a problem as the entry page-URL can be altered manually). Anyone has an idea what to do?

    FAWL Invitation - Aki Basho

    While I appreciate winning that many yusho, I would prefer more players giving FAWL (another) try! Thanks Neko, always nice to start the basho with a yusho... :)

    Not that it really matters, but the ranks of Homarefuji and Ura are wrong!

    Yoshikaze situation

    I think Asojima was not referring to Yoshikaze owning the kabu, but to the guy borrowing it.

    Next Yokozuna??????

    Are you referring to size or weight? Harumafuji was rather light for sure, but certainly not small, while Takakeisho is small, but not particularly light. And the combination of small (= under 1,75 m) and bulky (= over 140 kg) seems to be a rather good way to avoid the injury man, at least if you look at the careers of recent examples like Takekaze, Toyonoshima or Yoshikaze.

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    In which Kaio would have been in the yusho race if not for his day 1 loss against .... Aminishiki!
