    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    It's bad practice for a injured rikishi to mount the dohyo. What his opponent can do? His opponent definately does not want to lose, but he may also worry that he may injury the already injured rikishi again. In addition, the audience are sympathetic of the injured rikishi, they will be mad at the one who beat the injured rikishi especially if the injured rikishi is a popular rikishi.

    What will happen if one day in future a sumo wrestler declares he is a LGTB? I believe he will be kicked out immediately without argument.

    The time of abscence counted as kyujo, and former yokozuna also demotable. Or else only allow former non-yokozuna rikishi to be reinstated.

    Sure. The NSK should revise their policy to allow retired rikishi to rejoin the active rank.

    Even Kitanofuji san can be so humorous ...

    Preparations of the Y/O- Natsu 2019

    Sure. It means that the keiko (practice) will not betray you, i.e., if you do keiko you will improve.

    Preparations of the Y/O- Natsu 2019

    I don't think Hakuho could do a 20-1 to Takayasu, even in keiko.

    Banzuke for Natsu 2019

    Punished for some unknown scandal?
  9. I don't think it's the NSK people who wanted to make the fuss of it. It's the YDC. Next time Hakuho gets a zensho yusho, I hope Hakuho will call peope to sing "banzai" to the new ero and the new emperor. Will the YDC still denounce him?
  10. It seems the NSK is down-playing this hand-clapping fuss. Hakuho exhibited excellent sumo with another zensho yusho, got injured but attending the exhibition tour from the very first day. It's difficult to understand why the YDC keeps harassing this greatest rikishi ever seen.
  11. They did not talk about his sumo because as the GOAT his expertise and achievement are beyond their imagination. That's why they are more interested in hand-clapping or banning him from using certain sumo skills.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2019

    Do you think he is better than Chyutaikai?
  13. In YDC's eyes, Hakuho simply can't do anything right, and Kisenosato can't do anything wrong.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I think even within the NSK the opinions are also divided as in this forum. The trend (a descending one) in Taka's performance in the recent three bashos does not look good. He was denied promotion because of a bad loss to Goeindo, not because of numbers. Taka's loss today is event worse than that one, and the descending trend is especially a problem. In addition, the NSK is not in urgent need of a new Ozeki.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Do you still remember that he used to lose a large majority of bouts to Kisenosato at their home keiko in every prebasho keiko, even after Kise retried?
