    It might be related to their amateur success. To quote one of the most knowledgeable members of this forum, Miyabiyama acted like a bigshot from day one.

    Perhaps a training demonstration of his very last kachiage ? Seriously, it would really surprise if Hakuho wouldn´t take care of wrong antics which brought himself trouble. If he doesn´t he is just another of those sports greats who turned out to be bad coaches, but I do not think he falls into that category.

    Even after 20+ years of watching, I am about 0.0001 % familiar with sumo culture compared with the elders on this forum, but, with Mitakeumi supposedly harboring an injury and the sole Yokonzuna out, my guess is, he is only going on to fulfill his Ozeki duty.

    Well, memory becomes clouded at lot with time, so I am quite careful. I am just going out on a limb and say that Tochiazuma in his prime would have taken care of not injuring them while steamrolling them, and that matches between Chiyotaikai and Takakeisho at their best would have been a beauty to watch.

    After two 4-3 from Ms4 and Ms2, Roga finally seems to have scratched and clawed his way to Juryo. Kudos to him.

    What kind of injury is Mitakeumi supposedly suffering from ? Thanks.

    Ridiculous pedictions day 10-15

    From day 11 on, all Dewanoumi beya rikishi are kyujo due to a case of Covid.

    Hiro really nailed it by labelling the Terutsuyoshi - Okinoumi bout a come-from-behind win.

    That head butt spectacularly stopped Tobizaru in his tracks. As for Ura, somebody might send him a bull´s ear as acknowledgement for that move.

    Perhaps he´s trying to troll us differently this basho, like 7W, then 7L, then W on senshuraku.
  11. I wasn´t aware of "that other site/forum" (as it was called here ) until after the yaocho scandal broke. Back then, they where already obsessed and they were writing as if everything was as meticulously scripted as if the kyokai was actually a WWE division.

    Takayasu is four months removed from a jun-yusho with a playoff loss. I don´t write him off yet.

    Chances aren´t bad Asanoyama will continue that newfound tradition in 2023... ETA: Haru

    Apologies for repeating myself here, but this angers me since day 1.

    The hectic social schedule surrounding Japanese weddings has had an impact on many performances.

    I am wondering when exactly, and why, it almost vanished. I remember them being quite frequent into the naught years. Or does my memory betray me here ?

    Would a few torinaoshi as "fillers" be too unfitting ?

    Chiyomaru´s left leg really put up a nice resistance effort against Terutstuyoshi .

    I am stating the obvious here, but key is to get him in an upright position right at the tachiai and following through.Judging from his recent week two performances I am not convinced that anybody can do that.

    Without looking it up, to me it was a kind of read-and-react from Terunofuji. Granted, a tad late after a mediocre tachiai and his immediate counter failing, but he kept his calm, ring sense and strength to dispose of Endo.

    Nagoya 2022

    Takakeisho is using his left paw to great effect this basho. But I sincerely doubt it will be enough for Terunofuji. As for Endo - his dismal record comes from his now well-established struggles against oshi wrestlers. And yes, he drove Terunofuji to the edge, but to me it looked like the Yokozuna was never out of control of this bout.

    That´s exactly why/where things got awry.

    I think the gyoji didn´t as well. First he stopped the bout, but Wakamotoharu went on, which he (thought) obliged him to make a (useless) call. That´s where the chaos ensued, and the repositioning took way too long.
