    Training pics overview August 2020

    Thanks for the pics. That's some serious wrapping on Terunofuji's legs, looks complicated.

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    You can't know that nothing happened. It takes weeks before a contamination can be confirmed, the basho ended just days ago.

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    Yes, but those were hardly 'hanging offenses', were they? Intai sounds like there are irreconcilable differences that could never come to right. Whereas I thought Abi was just being immature and irresponsible and could do with some lessons.

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    What?? How many warnings has he had before this? Seems harsh and out of the blue -- they could have suspended him for 1 or 2 basho, surely? Compare this to Takayoshitoshi/Takanofuji who got so many chances before intai became inevitable.

    Kensho July 2020

    Perhaps the economic slump caused by Corona has something to do with that? Everywhere businesses are hurting when there is less money going around, although I'm not sure how Japan is coping. Having a tournament with an audience may have been an ill-conceived decision considering the wave of new Covid19 infections today.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    The torikumi makers have outdone themselves. Seldom have I seen a lineup like the upcoming last day of the July basho, with almost every bout a confrontation laden with suspense. Wow!

    Having looked at Enho's bout in slow motion three times, I definitely think he was robbed.

    Of course his career kachikoshi streak could not remain unnoticed. But his rise was slowed down a bit in Sandanme and with 2-2 at Ms54w he has a long way to go yet.

    General Corona Banter

    Are you serious? Overpopulation. Concentration of people in cities. Globalization. Mass tourism industry offering affordable holidays to people with lower incomes. Budget airlines offering cheap air fares. Mass leisure industry. Explosive growth of festivals, pop concerts and special events bringing very large numbers of people together in small spaces. Sports in which multimillion budgets need to be offset by mass attendance. An economy based on consumerism.
