    i'd say get used to it, it angers/disppoints a lot of people. They want to see participants not avoiding competing which is basically what a henka is.Especially in big moments and from the guys at the very top. Big moments don't come along enough to ever find such a move no big deal IMHO. Abi wasn't concerned about his health. he was concerned about losing.

    Of course they are, because it was a henka. It is ridiculous what he said but it's a reflection of how people are going to feel about this, which is anger and or disappointment. Abi fans can be happy. Heck i really like Abi. You can argue Takayasu is a seasoned pro, former Ozeki, and should be able to handle a henka. He wasn't robbed and that henka is legal. You are right. But it doesn't change the fact that fans were robbed by his action. Robbed of a unique experience that comes around rarely. A playoff with the 2 or 3 best on that day going at it. Giving it their all. A henka is fine for a Kisenosato that just tore his shoulder to bits. An injured guy. A smaller guy giving away 4 inches and 50 KGs. It has no business in a playoff between two guys in good enough shape to be there. Or even 2 Ozeki in good health in a regular match. To use it then may achieve what the rikishi wants, but it's at the cost of the fans and not just the money they paid for their ticket. More than anything fans, of any sport, want to see the best at their best. A henka from anyone isn't their best. It's a tacit admission they don't think they can win any other way.

    Yeah, I don't think that will cut it. The applause seemed pretty tepid during the speech. Fans don't wait decades to watch a 3 way playoff to see a guy win it with a henka.

    Yeah, frustrating year for me. I didn't really put in the time to do well. This basho was very bad but at least I pulled out a few KKs in the end and did well in Sumo Game.

    winning 3 tough matches is a lot, especially if injured. Advantage Takayasu I think.
