    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Think of it more as an Ozeki-marathon than and Ozeeki-run.

    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    Normally I would say he should as it's good to see things settled and put it the past. At the same time such a thing might become a spectacle and a distraction from an event which is a celebration of a great career. In the end I lean towards Takanoiwa saying such and not attending. If Harumafuji decides he wants to settle it then do a public meeting, or at least a PR release of such, before the event and get that out of the way so it doesn't distract from the day itself.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    The whole celebration seemed a bit muted. I don't think he won many hearts with all the head game mattas against Takayasu and Goeido. Worse he seemed to set off a rash of it from the other sekitori.

    I have no more likes for today and yes I noticed day 11 and 12. Can't believe I got a 9-6 after where i was for most of the basho. Thanks for your work and the game. Congrats to the Rowitoro on the yusho! And @Asashosakari and Norizo for the jun-yusho!

    Most wins for 2018

    Well, it looks like only 2 rikishi that have been in makuuchi for the entire year have a shot at the title and the 60 wins/10 per basho average threshold. Kakuryu and Tochinoshin. Mitakeumi could reach 60 wins with 14 in November, unlikely, but he would need to beat them by 6 wins to get the title. Also unlikely unless they both go kyujo. Things to note: Kakuryu has had an excellent year given he only missed half a basho really. With 2 yusho and perhaps the best record for the year even with a yusho by Hakuho in November I would say Kakuryu is the man and has best held up the rank of Yokozuna for 2018. Considering many, including me, were expecting his intai announcement to be imminent that is pretty astounding. Congrats to Kakuryu. Tochinoshin has had a great year and has reached another level for sure. Very deserved. Mitakeumi had a great year too but not the level up IMHO. Ichinojo is the only rikishi who could get a KK in all six basho this year. Yes, you read that right. In addition he was M1 in January and sanyaku for the rest of the year. He's 5th in total wins. You never know with Ichinojo but he seems to have reached a new level too, near permanent sanyaku. He is 28-12 versus maegashira and 15-20 against sanyaku. His primary block now seems to be mental, not physical. having an issue facing other sanyaku. If he gets past that....

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I have to say i was pretty shocked with Giku this basho given the start he had. No excuse whatsoever for not getting a KK. He looked to be sliding down very slowly and I expected he would survive for a while yet but his loss to Nishikigi is inexpiable. Even having dropped like he has, not being able to beat someone like Nishikigi with your KK on the line means a lot to me. He only got 2 wins this basho against guys who KKed and both of those eeked it out on the last day. His slide may be becoming more precipitous now. Giku also has managed only one KK this year so far, an 8-7. Along with that his 31 wins is the worst among everyone except Kisenosato with 11.

    Yeah, there was a lot of drama for guys who had so much on the line like Kise, Tochi and Mita but there was a lot of bad officiating, bad sumo, mattas galore and second half fades from too many that took a lot of air out of it for me. Congrats to Hakuho though. He deserved it.

    Well, my pre-basho games were pretty much a disaster although i am hoping to still put out a KK in Hoshitori, barely. Thankfully I did well in the dailies although not many points. I did tie again for 1st place in Makushita SG but I have no chance of winning a tiebreaker. But 12 wins and the jun-yusho for 2 basho in a row is very nice. 1st time over 100 points too.

    @Pandaazuma Talk about Quad working out for you. You still had Hidenoumi and Aminishiki for the fusen wins and could pick both Chiyonokuni and Yutakayama to guarantee a win. Very nice.

    I felt the same that I was the only one picking Takanoiwa. I picked Kakuryu to lose everywhere else Day 14 but I really don't like picking Yokozuna in games like Quad, TTT and ISP in the second half of the basho if I can help it. That's one of the reason's I use them up ASAP in Quad. Of course I'm totally picking him to lose tonight though.
