  1. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Feel free to ignore how many basho Hakuho and Asashoryu were in Juryo compared to Onosho.
  2. Most kinboshi given

    I was trying to post a kinboshi earned percentage table when I had a small catastrophe in trying to get the formatting right. I've abandoned formatting. Here's some plain text with DB rikishi numbers so you can look up them up in the DB. I'm not trying any more to get links to paste. I'm also pseudo-prevented from opening a topic, and this is the topic that spurred me to put in the effort to compile this, so.... Well, I decided to go through and highlight guys that are active or were very recently, although some of them are Yokozuna now and thus can never earn more. It wasn't that hard to determine since the ones that haven't been active any time recently aren't in my web browser's dictionary, so a lack of red squiggles was a big give-away. Those with 0 kinboshi are not listed. The top active guys in the 0 kinboshi category include Kaisei (22 tries) and Kakuryu (12). Most ever is Toki (DB#38, 29 tries).

  3. The last two days I'll be picking closer to the deadline, since they'll depend on the results of the previous day's matches, which occur while I'm sleeping, and I don't have time to look at sumo stuff until after work the next day (although I might not be working Friday, so ~shrug~). I'll say the same thing as well with regard to not looking at the picks.
  4. I pasted a huge amount of highly formatted text into the topic creation window in Ozumo Discussion. I didn't expect it to come so highly formatted, wanting only just the text. My computer (or maybe just web browser) was slow to respond so I abandoned that idea of importing the content I wanted (I didn't want all that formatting anyway). Unfortunately, if I go back and try to start a topic in the same forum, the forum wants to bring back that post I abandoned. Yes, I can clear the editor in theory - if the text ever loads. I'm not in the mood of sitting and waiting several minutes for something I didn't even want to load just so I can delete it. I looked for user settings to prevent the forum from so helpfully remembering what I was going to post, but I can't find anything. I'm guessing only an administrator of the board can do something about it, or perhaps even they can't and I'm stuck permanently unable to make topics in Ozumo Discussions until I resolve to let the thing completely load, for which there is no guarantee.
  5. Harumafuji Intai Speculation

    He's being forced to compete by the NSK as the least damaged Yokozuna. Practically or literally, we can't know, but it would be a severe problem if they had all 4 Yokozuna injured at the same time. With how contrite they are being after having 3 not start the basho, can you imagine what it would be like with all 4 on the sidelines? They aren't going to particularly hold this basho against him. Whether he'll retire is more based on whether he thinks he can sufficiently heal to be able to get back to 10 wins regularly, and that's not something we can know. We can speculate, sure. I speculate not after this basho, but more than likely by the end of 2018.
  6. Sansho Speculation

    Beating the only Yokozuna and having an otherwise good record is, in my mind, more compelling than beating an Ozeki tournament winner and having a lesser record than the former. We're used to seeing the Shukun-sho decided more by the tournament winner now that there are 4 Yokozuna and wins over Yokozuna are fairly common even in the case we have only 1 (the kinboshi vending machine) competing.
  7. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    What? Are you saying that Daishomaru was favored in your mind because he had more wins for the current basho coming in? That's really silly. It would mean that Onosho did not upset Harumafuji this tournament, because Harumafuji had more losses at that point. And I certainly can't see any other realistic metric for how you could say someone who hasn't been in the top half of the division was the favorite over a former sekiwake who's not that far removed from his peak.
  8. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    I watched the bout on the Sports Navi stream live, but I don't remember anything about it. I was barely paying attention to it anyway, just having it on while I was doing other things and occasionally catching the actual matches. I remember someone not getting up while I was watching, but I think that was Sasakiyama.
  9. And so you're basically confirming that what the book says is relatively meaningless?
  10. I'm guessing I don't get anything for knowing that it was just about as likely to be Hokutofuji than Goeido. 10. Goeido
  11. Thanks for going out there and making it less likely for the Kyokai to score. I think the two (Goeido, Houtofuji) are very close in likelihood, at least much closer than the previous guesses would seem to indicate.
