    I'm wondering if Kirishima has this stomach bug that has taken a couple guys out for a day but it's effecting him harder. He doesn't have an obvious injury. He just seems weaker than usual. Unable to complete his usual throws.

    Must be a stomach bug going around.

    Yes, I get a Runtime Error and page doesn't load. Not just Entry. That is the Standings page.

    I will add I think it's probably close to 100% we have at least one new Yokozuna by January 2025.

    I don't know. Considering Terunofuji hasn't finished 2 basho in a row in a year and a half you have to think it's not likely he wins in March. I have to wonder how easily he would have beat Kirishima and in the playoff if he didn't have a full days rest the day before. I think he still would have won but much more marginally. I think any of the Ozeki with a convincing win in March and a close second in May will probably get promoted. If that doesn't happen it will be more due to their beating each other than losing to Terunofuji.

    Why not just Hos? As in stronger than a country Hos. @Kintamayama can do a cover video.
  9. I think this makes the most sense. I think rikishi fear the loss of salary much more than that of rank. But a year is a bit much. An athlete facing an injury which takes a year to recover is facing a likely career ending injury. at the very lest even if they recover their chances of achieving what they would have are unlikely, Terunofuji is an exception. I would say have riksihi drop down the banzuke as usual but once they reach makushita they have 3 basho paid a juryo salary. This would give all injured riksihi pay for at least 6 months to recover. They could then reenter if healthy on the TD system. MSTD 15 coming back right 6 months after injury. . MSTD 30 for 8. MSTD 45 for 10 and MSTD 60 for12. This would also mean those going injured at the highest ranks would be paid longer which makes sense as they are the most talented and the ones the Kyokai would most want to return. To prevent abuse like a newly promoted juryo claiming injury and paid for 6 moths I would say make qualification for this based on length in sekitori rank before fall with 3 basho competing as juryo at least prior to injury being needed for the full 3 paid when dropping due to injury. 2 injured paid for 2 and 1 for 1. All of this would cost money for sure but it could be partially paid for by a portion of the money put aside for a rikishi's intai. if a rikishi is so sure he can and wants to return from a serious injury I think they would be okay with part of that being used to help them get back. If he's unwilling to bet on himself I don't see why the Kyokai would want to.

    True. But the sub stays in for someone until they return. If Takayasu goes out again Oho will not sub for him because he is higher ranked or higher placed in your choices.

    The game applies it the moment someone goes kyujo. It gets corrected in the end if necessary, I think. Yes, a placeholder. The -10 isn't applied to your total score yet. Nor is the MK solely dependent on the rikishi's score who left and returned. In your case @Pandaazuma the one win your sub, Midorifuji, got the 2 days Takayasu was out counts and Takayasu need only win 5 of his last 8 instead of 6 since to get a KK provided he stays the rest of the basho.
