  1. 25 people off to a flying start with the unfortunate news.

    Kisenosato intai

    It's not the Kyokai that was responsible for having him get the surgery. That fell straight on him and his oyakata. And his oyakata failed him by not telling him to get the surgery done. Other rikishi have gone out injured, got surgery or took as long as they needed to heal. Aand while they ended up falling back to the unsalaried ranks after sitting out for a while, they've come back to the top (Tochinoshin, Chiyonokuni, Ryuden as examples). This was a bad decision by Kisenosato and Tagonoura Oyakata.

    Kisenosato intai

    A tragic end to a storied career. My hope is that the way he handled his injury will be a lesson learned for a lot of rikishi aspiring to reach the top. Sometimes you need to have that corrective surgery. The NSK would have been more than happy to let him have a couple of basho off in order for him to completely heal, instead of the debacle that we saw for the last two years. I can't be mad at Kise more than be mad at his oyakata. We have seen that many rikishi have mounted a comeback after having had the corrective surgery, Kise in hindsight should have done the same. He still is in the record books for having achieved 700 makuuchi wins, that is a major achievement. Though he could not achieve all he set out to do as a yokozuna, he still made it to the top, nobody can take that away from him. Hopefully Araiso oyakata will be able to raise many successful rikishi some day.
