  1. Why people were picking Goeido for Day 10 I don't know, because it was obvious to me that Goeido was going to face Mitakeumi. My next best picks besides Chiyotairyu were Takayasu and then Arawashi, which I'm glad other people managed to cover. 11. Goeido It's kinda weird that Chiyonokuni will face all 4 of the YokOzeki before Hokutofuji faces his 3rd despite the former being lower ranked. They both met one Days 7 and 8, but the remaining ones for Hokutofuji were needed for sanyaku matches Days 9 and 10 while Chiyonokuni's remaining ones weren't.
  2. Harumafuji scandal

    Was Takanoiwa's brother there? If not, he's as reliable a source about what happened as I am.
  3. Rikishi Status Kyushu 2017 - Day 9 return & w/d

    Aoiyama's back on the Day 8 torikumi.
  4. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Yeah, it's ever since that loss to Tochiozan that Hakuho has seemed like he's out to get Tochiozan. I still remember exactly how that bout went and thought, "How the hell does Hakuho lose like that? He's got to be really pissed."
  5. I don't think anyone is keeping track, mainly because it's usually obvious that almost everyone has a just-below 50% record, some former Sekiwake hover a bit over that, Ozeki around 60-70% and Yokozuna 70-80%. So just looking at the W/L of the top few ranks will tell you pretty much everything except for those who just entered the division. And trying to compare the win % of someone who hasn't had more than 6 basho in the top division with someone that's had 60 just isn't very fair since the competition is weaker at the bottom. If it were just a 16 person division where everyone faced everyone like the Premier League, it would be more reasonable to compare them. But saying Takakeisho (or even more so, Onosho) has a high win percentage in Makuuchi (or for their career) is pretty meaningless, because that will either change or they'll move into the ranks where it's well known they have at least a 60% win rate.
  6. Harumafuji Intai Speculation

    Well, it's all about the removal of inhibitions. Whether you want to say that the person really is what he is after those have been removed, when they function to keep him in line just fine when he's not drunk, well, I don't know. When no one else is home I tend to scream and swear very loudly at my computer when I'm frustrated, but never when there's someone who could hear me. Which is the real me? The one who reveals himself when he has no reason to inhibit his show of frustration, or the one he is capable of maintaining when he knows someone could disapprove? That's part of the reason I don't touch alcohol at all myself (hating the taste of it is also a major factor though).
  7. Games Bugs

    TTT is having run time errors again. This time I wrote down on a piece of paper in plain view "TTT" to hopefully remind me to enter later (as I completely forgot Day 2).
  8. According to https://quoteinvestigator.com/2017/03/23/same/ it's an anonymous writer for a 12-step program most likely, although there were similar sayings before that. Einstein probably didn't, and I always felt the quote wasn't in character for him. I don't see the relevance to the situation; every day is something different.
  9. Kyujos tend to give one to the Kyokai. 5. Goeido
