  1. Kyujo Updates - 2018 Hatsu

    I know this is so late, but I watched mbovo's second day broadcast on twitch, skipping to the matches only, and saw in between was Takanoiwa giving an interview, crying and all. Has he intai-ed? Have I missed anything major? Why no discussion about it in the forum, as far as I have looked?
  2. Interesting how he still draws experience from his time managing in the J-League. Still, if he follows sumo more recently, he probably wouldn't reference it so readily... http://www.espnfcasia.com/arsenal/story/3307868/arsene-wenger-football-can-learn-from-sumo-wrestling-after-manchester-fracas
  3. Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    A very...big...dancer...
  4. Well, there are several GOATs in football : CR7, Messi, Pele, Maradona...just chose one that most closely relates to the man-child analogy...
  5. I forget how US-centric this forum can be. Talking about GOAT with attitude, you can think of Cristiano Ronaldo and Shane Warne for example.
  6. Now Moti, you're saying now (and have also to other people before) that the GOAT have been planning this all along?? Doesn't that make him, like, really cool??
  7. Wonderful follow up to Wacky Aki! Cuckoo Kyushu indeed!
  8. Whoooaaa finally something that might upstage the Harumafuji scandal wooo. Let's wait and hear what Hakuho got to say to the press.
  9. Aki jungyo 2017

    That Kanazawa dohyo preparations pic makes the dohyo looks very small? Fish-eye lens?
  10. Ura injured

    Here's coming from a couch potato and never had muscle surgery in his entire life : If he wants to challenge for sanyaku and possibly stay there for a good portion of his career, he'll have the surgery and therapy. If he wants to yo-yo between lower maegashira and juryo and be content, then he'll not have the surgery. Does that sound reasonable?
  11. So if say a gyoji has been doing his job for a few years and it's apparent he's just not good at it, will he be moved to another position say a yobidashi?
  12. Retirees after Aki 2017

    It's always very moving to see those danpatsu-shiki pictures. Being a distant observer, I always wonder what goes through the minds sub-juryo and below guys when they go through the ceremony. Is it along the lines of : "C**p I've wasted a dozen years of my life on this thing and I've gotten nowhere! What am I going to do now??" or is it more like : "I didn't make it big but I've gave it my best. What an honour to be involved in ozumo and I can't wait to start my next phase of life." That Fujinohana guy must have caused quite a stir when he debuted, no? With that physique, ancestry and dashing good looks. Anyone remembers?
