    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    It would be interesting to know how many of the abusers have also been victims, as is often seen with domestic violence.

    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    What else can this thread be abused for? Mods, do something!

    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    I always liked him. When he was active and after that. What I also like about him is that he is seeking to do well without aiming to be perfect. I wish more people had his sense of perspective and readiness for fun and play.

    Takanohana resigns

    I read this as "they have not decided yet whether to change into one of Chiganoura-beya" rather than "they have decided not to change into one of Chiganoura-beya".

    Aurora breaks the record and Aki weigh-in

    Actually less increase than I thought, in both areas.

    Have a go at a Haiku!

    The travelling circus is packed up and leaving town. "All aboard the bus!" The jungyo's silence of "Women on the dohyo" or children banned Regretted by some and petitioned by many, not a peep this time. The Kyokai waits for it all to blow over, and mayors are mum: No more rebellion and wrongdoers are punished, now back to business. What business this is? Look at Takanoiwa's bill for a short setback... Scandals are still here awaiting their eruption fueled by wanton greed While we, the public, just want to see good sumo not this legal crap. ...The travelling circus halts in another township for another show.

    I keep thinking of him saying that he was afraid of his Oyakata... he might be releived to be rid of him.

    Takanohana resigns

    As capital for an old age pension it isn"t much. If Takanohana has invested from his wrestling days this sum can be added to it. I know the life expectancy of ex-rikishi isn't high but he might live to a ripe old age troubling the Kyokai for many years to come, and he hasn't been poor.

    Kokugikan concert of Paul McCartney

    On what match? I thought it was only possible to place one kensho on all basho days as a minimum? Or was this a celebrity special exception?

    Akebono gravely ill (activities thread)

    So sad to see the big man reduced to this. I can't begin to imagine how he must feel, but the reunion perked him up to no end, and I hope he will get many more visits that can make him smile like that.
