    Without putting names to it that's a very conservative guess.

    The 4 ozeki are an interesting mix. Anyone fancy a guess where they'll all be a year from now?

    I was wondering when does he get his big win totals rather than what he does every time he's at a lower level.

    Does this coincide with when he's drifted low enough down the rankings to have relatively easy pickings?

    Except for the rules where there have so far been no exceptions.

    He's certainly a reason to be cheerful, but let's not provoke the gods of Sumo by saying "that's for sure".

    That's just intolerable. Give your boss a written warning.

    Seems a rather harsh opinion on a young man who's already made ozeki.

    Matta are a regular feature of Sumo and successful wrestlers have to be able to cope with them despite their inconsistent application. I'm not exactly sympathetic if someone struggles to reset after, especially when he's a regular offender anyway, it's part of the sport.

    It would be fair to recognise that on more than one occasion Kintamayama mentioned Daieisho had the look of someone who had the potential to move up.

    How unusual is it for all junior sanyaku to get a minimum of 9 wins?

    Are we really so sure it's just an excuse? He doesnt look right for some reason.

    So you don't read many then. Isn't that required of yokozuna!? Have the YDC asked for your retirement?

    Point taken about him being high on the active rikishi list. I would still prefer to see him treated like any 7-8 finisher, especially as he's already east side.

    Specific factors aside he has a one in four chance.
