  1. Harumafuji scandal

    Just my 2Cents as a freshman poster here: People of common background getting together for heavy drinking is prevalent in almost every culture I know. At the same is the understanding that during such meetings social/hierarchical etc. standards are irrevelevant - every participant is considered equal. Assuming it is the same in Japan, which I do not know for sure, makes HF and maybe others we don´t know of, just bad persons to be around with.
  2. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    How is that rule interpreted ? Are judges at liberty to let the fight continue if the other wrestler "accepts" the false start because he finds himself in a favorable position, like Kotoshogiku ? Something like a free play in football ?
  3. Basho Talk - Nagoya 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Harumafuji has been frequently using tottari in his career. Chances are Ura might have "stolen" it from him.
  4. Basho Talk - Nagoya 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Doesn´t being ranked in sanyaku for one tournament make a wrestler eligible to become an elder, regardless of total number of tournaments as sekitori ?
  5. BASHO TALK -- Natsu 2017 -- SPOILERS

    His attitude on or off the dohyo ?
  6. Basho Talk - Hatsu Basho 2017 ** (SPOILERS)

    Hi folks, a question about Aoiyama-Kaisei: it looked like Kaisei had gripped one of Aoiyama´s flabs on his side instead of the mawashi - is that usal ?
  7. So even in 2001, when he won two bashos, most people did not expect him to become yokozuna someday ?

  9. Hello from Austria !

    Hello Everybody, I am a 42-year old from Austria. I was introduced to Sumo through the Eurosport coverage around 2003, and got hooked pretty quickly. I am a long-time lurker, and after eight years reading the Ozumo topics decided it´s time to register and interact with the interesting people posting here :-)
