    Is it too early to speak about an "Ozeki curse" ? Injuries, suspension, loss off form...not exactly best crop since 2017, Takakeisho excluded. Or am I biased ?
  2. Wow. Missed a few months. I can imagine how seven-year Cicadas would feel. You vanish in 2016 and...

    I will never forget his expression after his loss to Ura. A mixture of disbelief and embarrassment.

    Those many head collisions at the tachiai seem beginning to show.

    Sure I know it. I have just never heard it in such a context. Totally misplaced, sorry.

    Jesus Christ and all Saints - what a warped analogy !

    The only thing that means is he will need a second yusho to be promoted. Which he will not get.

    It must have been a long time since none of the Chiyo gang was in Makuuchi.

    Perhaps his streak is keeping him in ?

    Ugh. That coconut crack tachiai sapped Takayasu of all his strength.

    Akiseyama Intai

    He suffered that injury on day 3 and all his subsequent opponents went after his jaw until him going kyujo on day 9. Though understandable, watching this remains one my low points since I started following sumo.

    Newer Ozeki Kotonowaka?

    Kotonowaka does not ozeki sumo. Not a single one-minute standoff followed by a uwatenage win in his entire career. I am sure Satodagake views him as a failure and disgrace to the shikona.

    What makes a great ozeki?

    It´s interesting how the perception of Goeido has changed over the years. After all, as those who were around then might remember, the term Ozekiwake was coined here for him, for supposedly being better than Sekiwake, but not performing to Ozeki standards.

    I am wondering if Hoshoryu will change his shikona.
