  1. Life can be cruel
    It had been so sweet before
    But now it's a hell

    Gone are the glories,
    Remaining is a nightmare,
    There is no escape

    You try to hang on
    But it'is slipping away
    Everyone knows it

    with honour fretted away,
    the fight is over.

    This fall is painful,
    Its wound will need long healing
    But there is a cure.

    A new life awaits
    with Oyakata honour
    and regained respect

    Always remembered
    as the national champion
    ending a long drought.

  2. Sad but inevitable, it was high time to face the painful truth. This is better than to be given a recommendation and he will surely be honoured for it.

    Yes, a separate thread please.

    He's doing this to return to sekitorihood.

    If he manages that, he will have broken some records. Of course he aims to rise quickly, in as few steps as possible. But by the time he could reach the Makushita joi, the current crop of talented guys will have gained the experience to give him serious trouble. Staying "perfectly healthy" fighting his way back to the top is... improbable... but nothing would please me more than to see him get back.

    That's exactly the wrong direction.
    If I am absent for a long time and want to type two days in advance, it would be good if I get with an IF the same conditions, that all players know  has gotten before the pick for Day 2, that the rikishi is already selected on Day 1.
    But if you just want to sleep, give the point to that player  that sets his alarm and then check if his Rikishi A has announced for the deadline that he will not compete!

    There is no "right" or "wrong" here, it's just a matter of preference. My preference is to have an uninterrupted sleep.

    It was so good that Sanspo again gives the kimarite for all training bouts of Kise with -keisho

    But it's a bad sign that he didn't do any sumo today. He should be training with increasing intensity at this point, it can't be that he is at his peak and ready. Just doing light stuff and choosing not to show himself to any opponents means that he needs the rest and that the basho is probably going to be his last one...

    Come on Kisenosato... prove me wrong! Get the yusho!!

    from the post about multiple pick for any situation of kyujo before the basho, i read that such entries are ok

    I think the rule was used only once for setting picks for multiple days or multiple picks for one day... that kind of thing quickly becomes an awkward if-then-else... I doubt it gives an advantage to the player. I'm just glad that the rule allows me to set an alternate pick when I think that my first pick might go kyujo while I am asleep. When I am absent for a longer period I just forfeit.
    I am sorry that you left the game.
