    If Aoiyama would finally stop doing those dame-oshi, he'd be much more likable and suppert-worthy. Kisenosato vs. Mitakeumi was just short of epic. Nice try by Abi playing mind games. Almost got him... Some well deserved purple drizzle for Takayasu. Feel sorry for Chiyonokuni. Deserves the kanto-sho, sadly no chance to get it.

    Hakuho - Takayasu could have been from a wildlife documentary. Young one wants to take over and pisses off old grumpy one. Old grumpy one goes in for the belly bump, marking his territory. From this moment it's over for the young one, old grumpy one tears him a new one and stays prime predator. They should use the topview cam more often. Very interesting to watch.

    Let's call it a mattathon from today on. I'm a bit disappointed by Kintamayama. I expected some joke that Abi couldn't win, because there was no neck to push, but nothing happened :( Going for the lift-up-game wasn't a smart move by Kaisei. At one point it looked like lifted up himself. But 4-6 on day 10 as M1 isn't a bad result for him. Wish he'd transform some of his fat into muscles (Tochi-style), he'd be a sanyaku regular.

    Hi, i had 1. A, too.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Yes. Rare, but not unheard of. Happens in winter sports like biathlon, too. For example if there was an obstruction. Or soccer/hockey games where the result was reversed, because the winning team used non eligible players. For example more foreign players on the field, than allowed.

    He once said himself (interview on russian TV IIRC), that one reason for entering ozumo was medicare. There must be a video link somewhere on this forum, can't find it right now.
