    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Even he withdraws from tomorrow, no one will ask him to retire. In January another 10-5 or even a 9-6 will keep him on dohyo for another two bashos. But if Takayasu wins this basho with a strong performance, people will change their mind.

    He said a 8-7 is acceptable for Kise.

    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    With the contradicting medical reports on his injury, and the fact that he did sumo for many days after being beaten, he has very slim chance to win the lawsuit, even with Takanohana's full support.

    New measures announced to combat violence

    #6 is ridiculous. It actually helps covering violence.

    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    Some people said a basho becomes more interesting if Hakuho is absent. This Kyushu is supposed to be sold out more easily?

    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    The 5.2% are Mongolians or Japanese? Did the third-party committee specify? Also, are there more violence among Mongolians?

    Top 10 Sumo Records Aki 2018 Edition

    As to their prime time or best years, I counted the number of yusho in their best 5 consecutive years: Asashoryu 20, Hakuho 20, Taiho 19, Chiyonofuji 19, Takanohana 17, Kitanoumi 16.

    Takanohana resigns

    This time I'd rather believe what Takanohana said about the reason of his retirement: that he was asked (by the kyokai) to acknowledge that the complain letter he filed to the government was not based on truth. Whether his complain letter is based on truth or not, he no longer has a standing place in the kyokai. If his complain letter is based on truth, the kyokai will be in great trouble. If not based on truth, then he is a liar and there's no place for him in the kyokai . Whatever, he has to retire.

    Takanohana resigns

    "協会は、退職を届け出た文書の形式に不備があるとして受理していない。"------- Google translation: "The association has not accepted that there is an incompleteness in the form of the document reporting retirement".

    Takanohana resigns

    His brother said it's usually to have the press conference after the kyokai has accepted the resignation. Takanohana had it right after submitting the resignation letter, showing his determination to leave the kyokai. It's no harm to leave him along as an independent heya. The kyokai clearly went over the line by forcing him out.

    Sansho for Aki 2018

    If Takakeisho had beaten Kisenosato, he might be awarded one. By the way, did he beat any yokozuna this basho?

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    His 41 yusho and 14 zensho speak louder than everything.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    These days zensho is no longer something rare. Even Goeindo had a zensho under his belt.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Can Hakuho reach yokozuna 1000 wins? Just 200 wins away. If he can maintain 60-70 wins a year, it only take 3 years, i.e., by the end of 2021.
