    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2020

    There are only five clear demotions from makuuchi and six - 7 if you count Chiyoshoma - very promotable rikishi in Juryo. Who will be the unlucky sixth? I guess Takayasu will certainly stay in Makuuchi?

    Goeido to Retire

    I always liked his movements. He looked cool. It's a shame his bouts ended by disappointment so often. Another yotsu rikishi gone, it feels like only the oshi rikishi remain...

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I wonder if rikishi ever take some tactical lessons? Goeidou rushing forward against the most agile rikishi and being pushed out seconds later... Aoiyama has the ability to bulldoze Ishiura out of the building, yet ends up being henka'd. I bet most of the visitors on this forum saw the henka coming from miles away... Does anyone know if they watch videos or talk about strategy with the oyakata?
  4. I've just read part three of the kintamayama interview. In this he mentions musoyama misusing the old kosho system. I checked the database for Musoyama and I found two bashos where it has been invoked. Both came after a basho where he withdrew early. This does not look particularly strange to me. Was there something more going on that can't be shown in numbers on the database?

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    I never really understood the amimishiki hype. I've been following sumo for about 5 years and all I saw were henkas or cheap hatakikomis against the Kotoyukis and daishomarus of this world. Was he an amusing rikishi 10 years ago?

    Promotion Discussion thread - Natsu 2019

    5 going down to makushita I guess. Seiro goes down too as there are a lot of promotable rishiki. Hoshoryu could be ms1e in july.

    How does it work?

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    7 rikishi with a 5-0 score... has this ever happened? Kise keeps finding ways to win out of difficult situations. He deserves a lot of credit. I think his bouts have never been so entertaining as now. I hope it stays like this and I hope he keeps on winning.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Asanoyama looks very calm and good. I think he is a very complete rikishi. For me the biggest hope of all the youngsters.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Yes he made some contact but it didn't interrupt Kotoyukis tachiai one bit. So still a henka for me. Ofcourse this is smart against Kotoyuki, who must be the dumbest rikishi by far, but we'll see Ishiura do it another 6-7 times this basho. I hope they are both in juryo next basho.

    *second match. The first one was the opposite of greatness: a henka...

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2018

    Hi, I have two questions: Who wiil be the east yokozuna in Aki? Is 3-3-9 and 3-1-11 judged as the same score? Will Hoshoryu and Naya both be in Makushita next basho? I feel like Naya could end up at Sd1 as well as at Ms60? Or are these two certain promotions? Thx.
