  1. Harumafuji scandal

    A rather civilized way to start a conversation and get people's attention. My opinion on the riji meeting - not good for Takanohana. He's doing himself no favors, and he's effectively killing whatever shot he may have as rijicho all on his own. Hard to tell who is on whose side anymore.
  2. Harumafuji scandal

    If sumo fans outside of the Kyokai in and outside of Japan are feeling that Hakuho's actions during the yusho interview were cringeworthy, then they were. His behavior in the last couple of years hasn't really been the best, especially considering that he is a dai-yokozuna, and the face of the sport.

    J3E, but he's definitely going to be around for a while
  4. Harumafuji scandal

    So we're going to blame the victim eh? You want to be very careful where you tread with that. I worked in a warehouse my last year that I was in Japan, and believe me that there was violence and beatings that would go on in there too when people couldn't get the job done right or fast enough. I was lucky enough that I didn't have anybody get a shot at me, but one guy got hurt after getting beat up by the guy in charge of containers. The supervisor above gave the guy a day off to go to the hospital but he didn't get any apologies from the other guy, and it was swept under the rug. So when something happens that ends with somebody getting injured, don't you think the right thing to do would be for somebody to apologize and take responsibility. You seem to forget Harumafuji's position too as a yokozuna. And let's remember that this is Japan and in Japanese feudal culture, those that committed grave offenses against authority took responsibility by HARAKIRI. Familiarize yourself with Japanese culture a bit before creating your own storm.

  13. Makunouchi Yushos in 2018

    Hakuho - 4 Takayasu - 1 Hokutofuji - 1
  14. Hakuho in 2018

    With Harumafuji gone there aren't many too challenge him unfortunately, unless Kisenosato pulls off a miracle and gets back on track. 4 yusho, 2 zensho 72 wins 24 win streak I am also of the opinion that he will end up withdrawing from or sitting out one basho
  15. Harumafuji scandal

    Somebody needs to calm down a bit. First off, Harumafuji admitted to assaulting Takanoiwa. Second, where does it say that the NSK "forced" him out? The Kyokai was wanting to get to the bottom of the incident as fast as possible. Third, Hakuho did his countryman no favors with his yusho interview stunt and made himself look even more like a fool.
