    Fun facts: Shohozan wins 5.4% of his bouts by uwatenage. He never won by uwatenage in the lower divisions. He needed to climb up to makuuchi to discover that technique. Today he celebrated his 500th career win, his 300th as maegashira. Congrats, punk!

    Well...Enho is only in makuuchi because auf bout-fixing, so the fans can have a mascot. Isn't that basically what you said in your posts?

    Didn't Mainoumi have a head-implant to be taller, so he wasn't 171cm for real?

    Wasn't there an Ura-bout once, where he (a bit injured) started from the tawara? Or did he slide back to the tawara during the bout?

    Yes, should've made it clear i don't blame Enho for what happened today.

    Can't wait for the results of the next mongolian karaoke evening ^^ Enho does what he has to do against opponents who almost always outweigh him by 50% or more. Do i want to see "tachi-ai" like today all the time? No, but once in a while it brings some welcome variety to the show. Was it legit? Yes. Are Enho's tactics legit? Yes, legit and far from unfair. There are other rikishi who stretch the rules a lot further to unfairness, like the harite posted above or the infamous Kinjo vs. Maeta bout. Speaking about Kinjo/Chiyodaigo, from the banzuke it seems he's injured. Are the any infos?

    Hakuho does that gesture quite often. Neither did he intend to hit Takarafuji, nor did he hit him.

    Brilliant idea. THE SPLIT. Who does it better? Enho or Van Damme?

    Agree. Of the big guys he seems like the one with the best muscle/fat-ratio, by far. I actually like seing him from behind in a bout, amazing thighs and butt. Well defined muscles and almost no fat-wiggle.

    4 days over, one career threatening injury and one nasty setback for two young and promising due to seemingly harmless jumps off the dohyo. Sumotori learn how to fall the right way to not get injured. But they can't use their knowledge, because people are sitting in the way. They harm themselves by trying not to injure people who really shouldn't sit there.

    But you do it and it's looking good.

    Exactly my thoughts. He confused his knee when going airborne, so it twisted itself. Make the dohyo ground level, move the spectators two rows back. Some less tickets to sell, less injuried rikishi, less unannounced visits to the crowd, less squished shinpan. Any argument against making the dohyo ground level is - in my eyes - invalid. The tsuriyane was supported by columns for hundreds of years - one could call it a tradition* - but it was altered into a hanging construction for a better view on the dohyo. Why not break another "tradition" for the sake of the sumotori's health? *tradition, noun 1. peer pressure from dead people 2. killer-argument in sumo
