    Hatsu 2023 discussion (results)

    I seem to remember hearing/seeing an interview with a rikishi asking this sort of question (it may have been on Channel 4 in the UK, but it may have been in some other sort of programme which featured sumo, as this doesn't seem an entirely appropriate topic of conversation), and the answer just said something about taking the weight with the arms. As an aside, since we've descended into the mawashi, do they wear anything under the mawashi, like a fundoshi perchance?

    Promotion /Demotion and Yūshō Discussion Hatsu 2023

    I meant that I excluded all the ones that did get promoted, and, of the ones that didn't, the reason was always that they were too far back in the queue, rather than someone unfairly being promoted ahead of them.

    I had a look around for what's happened to 9-6 results from J2, and the only cases which nominally went against the numbers were any where a J1 was promoted with an 8-7. This includes any cases back to 1970, I think the closest was a half-rank and dai-yusho difference. On this basis, I simply can't see Asanoyama getting the nod against the numbers here.

    I suppose we were spoilt for the past fifteen years with a raft of strong fighters almost all of the time. However, it looks to me like there are finally some youngsters who will be ready sooner than we might expect to finally clear some of the thirty-something journeymen out of the way, and establish a new order.

    Sukubidubidu seems to have already progressed past day 3 in Chain Gang. Impressive!

    I believe too much salt is bad for diabetes too.

    GTB invite- Hatsu 2023- 141 entries, the line is dead.

    Perfect down to M1 apart from having the Sekiwakes swapped e/w. After that, quite annoying. M2, M7 and M8 all perfect apart from being one rank removed from the actual. So, slightly imperfect = terrible. Oh well!

    Nice to hear I'm not the only one. Apart from the expense of this solution, everything worked out quite nicely I thought.

    140 brave souls in the end. We can't all come last!

    I tried that too. In the end, I was left with a vision of predictable unpredictableness. They will do the opposite of what I suspect, the rules will be rewritten, chaos will engulf all.
