  1. Should-have-been Y/O

    Yokozuna > Ozeki. If Kisenosato is "forced" to retire, so what! He's a Yokozuna! If Terunofuji falls into Makushita, so what! That's Ozumo!
  2. Should-have-been Y/O

    Kakuryu, at the time of his Yokozuna promotion, had exactly 1 yusho.
  3. Hakuho’s father just passed away.

    Does this also mean that Hakuho might retire before the 2020 Summer Olympics?
  4. TV Japan no longer on Dish Network

    Terrestrial. In the USA, we have digital TV. All you need is an antenna. Some cities, with large Japanese populations, will broadcast Japanese TV on a digital channel. Alas, not in Green Bay.
  5. Sumo Reference Updates

    It's on for me.
  6. Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    Kinta, I never know when your kidding or not.
  7. Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    WAKATAKE; The way you phrased this, it could mean that Hakuho has sat out 83 bashos. That's all.
  8. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    Speculation. Perhaps, Takanohana wants to protect Takanoiwa from the Mongolians. Prevent Hakuho from teaching him a "lesson".
  9. Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    Are there any photos or videos of this incident?
  10. Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    The more Ozumo changes, the more it stays the same!
  11. Should-have-been Y/O

    Yokozuna runs.
  12. Should-have-been Y/O

    Prior to his promotion, Ozeki Kisenosato was 10-5; 12-3 J(12), 14-1 Y(1). That is 36-9. He was promoted primarily because he was Japanese. BTW, I supported his promotion.
  13. Oh, how I wish that chart were in English.
  14. Takayoshitoshi scandal

    I was referring to Takayoshitoshi's best case scenario.
  15. Takayoshitoshi scandal

    That's what I meant to post. Haru: J14e (3-6-6), to Natsu: Ms8e? (kyujo), to Nagoya: Ms58e? (7-0), to Aki: Ms5e? (7-0) to Kyushu: Back in Juryo.
