  1. Hakuhou injured.

    Hey, don't sell your mom short here.
  2. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    My thoughts exactly.
  3. ELEVATOR TEAM 2018 (ONE more to reach 10) (need for 2ND LEAGUE)

    Combine them to create one Ichinojo!

    In order of points from most to least: Ichinojo Kaisei Daiamami Tochinoshin Terunofuji Chiyomaru Sokokurai Okinoumi Yoshikaze

    x15 Mitakeumi x13 Chiyomaru x11 Chiyonukuni x10 Ikioi x9 Kotoyuki x8 Ishiura x7 Tochinoshin x6 Abi x5 Ryuden
  6. ELEVATOR TEAM 2018 (ONE more to reach 10) (need for 2ND LEAGUE)

    10 Chiyotairyu 9 Ikioi 8 Tochinoshin 7 Tochiozan 6 Chiyonokuni 5 Chiyomaru Sub1 Kagayakii Sub2 Endo
  7. Kakuryu Intai Speculation

    I'm guessing this was a typo, but his yusho was 14-1. He did have a 10-5 the basho before that and another in March 2017.
  8. January 2018 weigh in

    I heard he finally collapsed into a neutron star.
  9. Steroids, HGH and other performance enhancing drugs?

    This is the system that the UFC has for its fighters via USADA (US branch of WADA, World Anti-Doping Agency). Is it effective? Sure. Are there still plenty of fighters using stuff they're not supposed to? Yep. The bottom line with these things is that there will always be people trying to cheat to get an advantage, and of those people some will get away with it. You're left with two options: 1) Strict testing programs as a deterrent (and let's face it, they're a deterrent not a flawless method of prevention or detection) 2) Let everyone use what they want. The problem with 1 is it's only semi-effective. The problem with 2 is that steroids are illegal in many countries, so it's not likely to change anytime soon. There really isn't a great solution.
  10. Hakuho in 2018

    5 yusho (he'll be kyujo for the 6th). 69 total wins, 23 consecutive. One zensho yusho.
  11. Steroids, HGH and other performance enhancing drugs?

    Marketed alongside our caffeine pills, Ichino-doze, and our Goei-dough bread baking kits.
  12. Goeido in 2018

    I think Kaptain Kadoban will do ok this year. 4 KK, 2 10+ wins. No yusho. Remains Ozeki.
  13. Ichinojo, 2018 edition!

    Let's put him at M7. I expect him to continue being consistently inconsistent.
  14. Steroids, HGH and other performance enhancing drugs?

    Mass gainers are usually just protein powder + oats for extra calories. In other words, they're food. Rikishi already eat food (rather a lot, I'm told) so this wouldn't be an alternative to steroids or other PEDs.
  15. Harumafuji in 2018

    I'll say he sticks around til May/June but wins no yusho and max winning streak is 8.
