    Guess Kisenosato's Aite

    uuuhhh... shouldn't this be posted in "Guess Hokutofuji's aite"? If this thread is supposed to list the banzukes of "X's aite", then perhaps renaming it wouldn't be a bad idea. "Guess the Aite" would have my vote then. After all, Kisenosato is Araiso now.

    Thanks for organizing this most frustrating but very interesting game. See you all next basho!

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    That brings up the question of whether he will be promoted to juryo or not. Anyone has thoughts on this? It seems he'd need help and luck to get to juryo in the next basho. I'd say that it will be difficult even with a 7-0 result to skip a 5-2 result that is six rungs above on the banzuke ladder, but the yusho might count for a few rungs more. Even then, there are four rikishi in the top of the Makushita joi with kachikoshis that have a greater chance of returning to Juryo. It all depends then on the big shuffle in Juryo. There are going to be quite a few demotions in Makuuchi and Juryo rikishi moving up freeing their spots. At the same time, there are Juryo rikishi with bad makekoshis but only two certain of demotion and the fight for kachikoshis isn't finished yet. So we'd have perhaps six Juryo spots freeing up that could give Terunofuki a chance. Or some of the Makuuchi demotees get a little banzuke luck and Terunifuji will be at Ms1 next basho. It could go either way... it all depends on whether Hoshoryu and Irodori get a makekoshi which will give Terunofuji greater chances.

    If there were 100 to share that cost, I'd join. And do this for more than one basho. With 100 or more joining, it's still a fraction of what physical attendance would cost me. Why would I be the only one who is seriously interested? We could start a poll.

    Sponsors should be looking at which Top Division wrestlers are attracting the most attention. Enho fits that bill in spades. But then I'm not a businessman who is looking for ways to attract business. Perhaps we should revive the idea of Forum members joining in a sponsor group then, and set one kensho each day on Enho's bouts. If the group has enough members, that shouldn't be too expensive.

    Sponsors might like their charges to have a promising future, and Enho's career may be cut short by a debilitating injury at any time now... but amazingly, he is defying all odds. As long as he fights rikishi who haven't met him often enough to develop a winning strategy against him, he will do well. Longer if he can truly become the new 'waza no depato' capable of surprising his opponents with unusual techniques and unreadable strategies. I definitely root for him. He is a joy to watch. I hope he'll continue defying the odds and become a Makuuchi mainstay.
