    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Does he use a regular bow or a small tree? Detritus of the Night Watch is suddenly coming to my mind. Ok, Detritus used a siegecrossbow, but the results should be the same ^^ Joking aside, another example how the mind plays an important role. First time in his makuuchi career he was 7-0 and first makuuchi KK on day 9. Awesome.

    He scored his first goal this season and celebrated it with shiko

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Poldi probably is the most popular German Football player at the moment. He's a hero, but he always stayed the nice, humorous boy from the steel worker class neighbourhood. Absolutely down to earth, a guy you want to have as your buddy.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    He's better at doing the submarine, than your navy for the past 100 years. SCNR Austrian-bashing aside, the guy is tiny, won't grow a single mm in his life and fattening up like Abezakura is not the answer to his shortcomings. What should he do? Even Kotoeko and Ishiura would just deflect him heads on. You can't defy natures laws. Better than becoming the ultimate bouncy henka-machine.

    Ridiculous Predictions for Haru 2019

    Tamawashi and Takakeisho meet for a ketteisen. Tamawashi loses, but his 12-3 is still enough to get him promoted alongside Takakeisho.

    Why is there not even a small Tomokaze hype?

    Sounds plausible.
  9. Seriously. This guy just marched from mae-zumo to makuuchi in less than 2 years (4th place on list of fastest ascents), grabbed 3 yusho on the way and never was makekoshi. Do people think he's gonna blow like Jokoryu? Does he have leper?

    Haru 2019

    Disclaimer/introduction for new players The Wall: If a sumotori gets a makekoshi (MK = losing record) his first time in that respective division, it's called "hitting the wall". Tomokaze never had a losing record in his first 11 basho (which is amazing), so he still has to hit his career wall. And because it's his first basho in makuuchi division, he has to hit that wall, too. Promotion/demotion/kadoban: Goeido and Takayasu had winning records at Ozeki rank last basho. If they get a losing record, they won't be demoted, but placed on kadoban, which means demotion after another makekoshi next basho. Tochinoshin is kadoban - he had a losing record last basho. If he gets another makekoshi this basho, he will lose his Ozeki status after just 5 basho at this rank. Takakeisho on the other hand needs only 10 or 11 wins to get promoted to Ozeki after just 28 basho (a bit more than 4 years) from career start in mae-zumo. We might see some Ozeki switcheroo this basho. Aminishiki is on the brink of retirement (intai). If he gets a losing record and a demotion to makushita division (which means dropping out of salaried ranks), he will step down for sure. Maybe even with a small makekoshi that holds him in juryo. Guess the colour of the giant macaron: One of the prices for the yusho winner is a giant fake macaron (as placeholder for a load of real normal sized macarons from the best Pâtisserie in Paris). The colour varies and it has a become a popular game to guess it.

    Araiso-oyakata plans NFL training methods

    I applaud Araiso for this move. It's always a good idea to have a look at new methods. If it doesn't prove successful, you can always fall back into old patterns. You can see in other sports how new training methods have boosted results.

    What do you expect when russians (or ex-soviets in general) are involved? Especially the russian doping system is well documented.
