    Terunofuji Watch

    Not good. He's seems to be light all of the sudden. He's been winning because his opponents get nowhere on the tachi-ai as he was resisting well enough to counter and finish them. They are now.

    Foot Wetting

    Here's hoping they at least put some bleach in it. But given the guys are rubbing themselves all over with towels and handing it to the yobidashi I wouldn't bet on it. Joseph Lister would not have been a Sumo fan.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Wow. High praise indeed.
  4. I'm really starting to hate tiebreakers. Asanoyama and especially Endo killed me tonight. Wow, I thought I had it bad. Owl is getting raped on tiebreakers in SG.

    I'm getting the error now.
  9. Yes, this is a pretty joyless affair. I'm struggling just to get my picks in under the deadline.

    Tochinoshin saw it too. Didn't care. His heart ain't in it.

    Very sad to see Tochinoshin this way. Too down even to stand up for the reset.

    @Mmikasazuma @RPedro44 Asnaoyama won by fusen. There are no fusen wins in Chain. KYUJO - When your default pick goes Kyujo, your second default pick kicks in.. IMPORTANT!! You cannot win OR lose by fusen. If your picked rikishi is involved in a fusen match, the default kicks in automatically.This is so no player will have any advantage due to time zone differences, as we had happen in the past. In the highly unlikely event that your default is also involved in the fusen match, you're toast..The best thing to do is keep an eye out for possible kyujos, and stay away from that rikishi!!

    Sorry, just thought that was a given. They can't actually stop a US citizen from returning. All they can do legally is quarantine them when they get here.

    Trump has suspended all travel between the EU and US for 30 days. Doesn't include UK.
  16. Kind of surprised Chiyotairyu isn't out too.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    It's funny watching Akiseyama this basho. He looks pretty limber and is moving around better than usual. Yet he's losing. He actually seems like he does better when he looks tired IMO. Weird.

    Yes, I was thinking the same thing. If this holds true in the future and isn't just some special accommodation for this very odd basho then surprise fusen matches are going to cease to be much of a help to anyone.

    But it's 2 hours late. DST is only 1 hour.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    Thank you. I thought I was going crazy and just forgot what time it usually came out. I'm wondering if this means they have multiple rikishi pulling out late.

    Ouch!
  22. Miserable Day 2 for me. At least I didn't get kicked from CG. It was worse for being closer than I thought. While watching I thought "Man, this is a loss in Toto for sure" and it was, but only by a half point which somehow made it worse. I thought I had done absolutely terrible. I mean losing is losing but somehow they can seem different day to day.
  23. Not to be mean but I would think they didn't accept because they did not think the pictures would be worth, to them, the cost of what you were asking for. By proper credit I mean that you have to state the origin of what you are editorializing on is and who the copyright belongs too so people do not mistakenly think your using them places it in the public domain. Not credit as in acting as praise instead of payment. As such I will defer to use on this and I never meant to bog down this thread. But I have to say that it stands at odds as to what I routinely see in editorializing in print and the web.
  24. Yes. I wasn't meaning to suggest he is actually working for any media organization. I didn't think he was. By access I mean his being local. attending various events and knowing some people in sumo.
  25. @John Gunning I really do appreciate your thoughtful answers. Thanks.
