  1. Usually I have been because that's how the NSK records showed them. I suppose I could leave * marks to show name changes if you'd like.

  6. Have to say this is the first time I've ever gotten to play this game in this format, but I'm certainly thankful for the opportunity. Hard to believe the release is only a week away!
  7. Point taken as far as Mainoumi vs Konishiki is concerned. For Orora, it's kind of hard to mythologize smaller opponents beating him for the casual fan when the highest he's ever gotten is lower makushita. Obviously, when Mainoumi vs Konishiki was happening, it WAS in the makuuchi, where it gets the most attention. At this point, the biggest person Ura has to face in makuuchi is Ichinojo, who he did manage to beat in this last tournament.
  8. Now that you mention it they WILL be facing each other in Nagoya. That is guaranteed. But if Geek can keep up the bumpety prowess that he showed even with last basho's result, Ura won't be able to hold a candle to him. As far as Konishiki vs Mainoumi went, just watching videos of them facing each other, with the crowd as loud as it could be, made for classic David vs Goliath talk. People love to see an undersized dog win in those types of situations. As the saying goes, "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog."
  9. I am firmly in the camp that Ura will be like Mainoumi. He will be an entertaining wrestler, and will earn himself to promotion, to sanyaku, but unfortunately his style will not get him beyond the lower levels, and I don't think he can make ozeki let alone yokozuna with it. As long as he can stay injury free, he will be a mainstay in makuuchi for a while. One thing that is different between him and Mainoumi, there really isn't an equivalent to Konishiki for Ura in makuuchi right now, nor do I think that there will be one anytime soon. That was one of the things that made Mainoumi so entertaining.
  10. All three kinboshi winners for Natsu 2017 ended up being make-koshi (Chiyonokuni, Endo, Tochiozan). Can anybody tell when the last time that happened was? I tried looking up kinboshi through the DB query but apparently that's not a valid search parameter.

  13. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Sansho.aspx Gino-sho has not been awarded 61 times since the sansho began in 1947. Technically it is the hardest to get even though the numbers are close to below. Shukun-sho has not been awarded 58 times. Something to note is that the Shukun-sho has not been handed out too often in the last 15 years or so, and that is most likely because we've had two dominant yokozuna back to back in that time frame. Kanto-sho has not been awarded 13 times.
  14. I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw the new shikona. Perhaps he's a Mito Komon fan?
  15. Tamanoi beya has announced on their website that Notoazuma has retired. He entered Tamanoi beya in March of 2007, and his highest rank was makushita 40. His danpatsu shiki was held at the post basho party for Tamanoi beya. http://www.tamanoi.com/?p=1792
