    I wouldn't say it was harassment, but all the simping was truly detestable.

    Absolutely brilliant.

    Okay, so how should I approach this? Let's say there's a "ceiling" above the J1e slot. Then, using the number of wins less the number of losses, we calculate whether that difference is enough to get past that ceiling from the current rank. Result East Rank West Result J1 Bushozan 9-6 +3 +3 9-6 Hokuseiho J2 J3 +3 9-6 Tohakuryu J4 +7 11-4 Kinbozan J5 J6 Daishoho 12-3 +9 +5 10-5 Chiyonokuni J7 J8 +3 9-6 Roga J9 Hidenoumi 8-7 +1 +3 9-6 Gonoyama J10 J11 Shimazuumi 9-6 +3 J12 Asanoyama 14-1 +13 +9 12-3 Shonannoumi J13 +3 9-6 Tsushimanada J14 Hakuyozan 9-6 +3 For Bushozan: J1w + 3 ranks = 2.5 ranks above the "ceiling". For Hokuseiho: J2e + 3 ranks = 2 ranks above the "ceiling". For Tohakuryu: J4e + 3 ranks = J1e (0.5 ranks below the "ceiling"). For Kinbozan: J5e + 7 ranks = 3 ranks above the "ceiling". For Daishoho: J6w + 9 ranks = 3.5 ranks above the "ceiling". For Asanoyama: J12w + 13 ranks = 1.5 ranks above the "ceiling". Am I at least thinking in a remotely correct direction? (I'm not saying I used this method when justifying Asanoyama's promotion, just trying to understand the underlying mechanics)

    I don't know, the context looks pretty equivalent to me. I'm passing over someone with a worse record (Daishoho this basho, Osunaarashi / Tokushinho in 2013.07) in favour of someone with a better record but further down the banzuke (Asanoyama this time, Endo in 2013.07). What am I missing? That said, I wouldn't be surprised if Mitoryu gets the short end of the stick after all. I'd think he'd even prefer that, juryo is his domain.

    It also is just a secondary factor, the fact that Kinbozan holds a 1.5 rank advantage over Daishoho while being only 1 win behind him should suffice.

    It's not about the suspension anymore, he cleared that. It's about the fact that the precedent of keeping a 14-1 Y rikishi in juryo is really, really old. And there is a significantly more recent precedent of a 14-1 Y being promoted to makuuchi even from a lower rank to that of Asanoyama. Coupled with the fact that Asanoyama's experience in the top division is not in question, I'd say he should be taking precedence. Daishoho also wasn't given any exchange bouts. I don't think so. Bushozan and Hokuseiho are definitely in front of him in that respect. And I would also put Kinbozan before Daishoho since in their bout Kinbozan won.

    At J1 somewhere I think, together with Tohakuryu. No way they're keeping Asanoyama down there for another basho.

I sure am.

    Maybe as an option then. I find it very cumbersome having to manually move almost 40 rikishi down half a rank. But then, I have submitted exactly one (1) GTB entry, who am I to judge :)

    Wow that's a great one. If you take feature requests, putting a M1e into an already occupied M1e slot could slide the previous occupant into M1w, and so on further down the banzuke. That would be awesome.

    Hoshoryu no :( Why does he henka Sadanoumi? I feel like this has happened more than once.

    Hatsu 2022 Promotion & Yusho blather

    Day 13 Yusho race continues with Terunofuji and Mitakeumi in the lead, Abi trailing by 1 win, having lost today to Mitakeumi. As Ross Mihara correctly pointed out on today's NHK stream, it's a round robin between the three rikishi on the last 3 days. Terunofuji vs Abi tomorrow and Terunofuji vs Mitakeumi on senshuraku. Meisei complicated his sanyaku life by losing today. One more loss will definitely cost him his rank, but it is already shaky as it is with no shortage of rikishi gunning for KK in the joi. However, Kiribayama, Endo and Hokutofuji are not among those after today's losses. 11-2 Terunofuji Y 1-3-9 Takakeisho O Shodai 5-8 11-2 Mitakeumi S Takanosho 6-7 (?) 5-8 Meisei K Daieisho 5-8 (x) 7-6 Wakatakakage M1 Kiribayama 5-8 (x) 7-6 Ura M2 Ichinojo 7-6 7-6 Tamawashi M3 Endo 5-8 (x) M4 Hokutofuji 5-8 (x) 9-4 Onosho M5 9-4 Hoshoryu M6 Abi 10-3 M7 Takarafuji 9-4 Today's win by Chiyotairyu puts him into the safe territory by the numbers. Oho - Akua are matched up on Day 14, and a win by either rikishi would guarantee them safety from demotion. Nishikigi and Ichiyamamoto will fight an exchange bout. Kaisho and Azumaryu are no longer in contention for promotion after losing today.

Day 14 will see 3 exchange bouts between juryo and makushita: Chiyoarashi - Tochimaru, Kotoyusho - Atamifuji and Hiradoumi - Shimazuumi. A loss by Chiyoarashi will cement his trip back to makushita. Dewanoryu also won today, further complicating the promotion situation. It really is going to depend on how many slots are available in juryo. (x) 0-0-13 Asanoyama J4 ...
