  1. Hot Nagoya? Arena air condition in bad condition..

    No, didn't think about technological superiority, but it's undeniably less hot and humid in Düsseldorf in july. The Messe Düsseldorf, where it could be held is in walking distance of the international airport and downtown Düsseldorf. It is large enough to house all personnel and plenty training dohyos. Sports grounds and a public bath are right beside it. You could even convert one of the exhibition halls to a giant bathroom. And Düsseldorf is the largest "japanese" city on the continent. Rikishi frolicking around the banks of the rhine 3 for weeks would be "burner", sadly it's unrealistic, but not on the logistical side.
  2. Hot Nagoya? Arena air condition in bad condition..

    I vote for abandoning Nagoya. Let's have a summer basho combined wth the japan days in Düsseldorf next year.
  3. World Cup 18 - comments

    You ned someone placed 3rd. Without it, it'd be like knocking on Penny's door only 2 times.
  4. Kensho Nagoya 2018

    Comparison to day 7 the last 2 basho. Cancellation of kensho should be banned. Kensho on fusen-bouts should be distributed evenly to the rest of the bouts or at least to the bouts directly prior and/or after it. It's depressing to see the lone 7-0 leader having gotten only a meager 10 kensho/win. Natsu: 167: Kakuryu 121: Hakuho 62: Abi 57: Tochinoshin 53: Endo 52: Mitakeumi 39: Goeido 31: Kotoshogiku 28: Asanoyama 22: Chiyotairyu Haru: 161: Kakuryu 104: Goeido 72: Endo 61: Takayasu 49: Mitakeumi 40: Tochinoshin 34: Ichinojo 30: Ikioi 28: Tamawashi 26: Kotoshogiku

  6. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Ok, Mitakeumi in the lead with 7-0, followed by 3 Maegashira with 6-1, 1 Ozeki and another 4 Maegashira with 5-2. It's his 2nd 7-0 in his makuuchi career. The last was 01.2018 and he ended up with a close 8-7. But from what i see on the dohyo, this time it will be better than 8-7. Could this be his basho? Absolutely.

  8. Bench World Cup 2018

    Ok, i thought it started over when my chain was broken. Can live with that.
  9. Bench World Cup 2018

    first half england scored, croatia didn't, so it's a point for me. second half croatia scored, but england didn't, so i assumed my chain broken and the match lost, especially because the same happened in OT. but i humbly accept my win and will gambarize in the finals.
  10. Bench World Cup 2018

    I don't quite understand this either. I thought my chain was broken in 2nd half...

    Yes, yes, they are called "lobster", but we both know that's just another name for what we call Langusten. Not related to the real thing However, the mawashi's killer.
  12. foreigners?

    That's 33 of ~680, let's say 5%. The distribution is interesting, but after giving it a thought absolutely logical.
