  1. Dohyo soil standardised

    There have been a lot of slippiotoshis this basho...
  2. Ridiculous Predictions for Kyushu 2017

    He always has a sort of "I'm just going for a little stroll in the park" expression. I'm glad to see him doing well.
  3. Ridiculous Predictions for Kyushu 2017

    These don't sound ridiculous at all, though I don't see Kisenosato being that close in the yusho race. Ouch.
  4. This upcoming basho will most likely not be nearly as wacky as Wacky Aki, but I think it'd be fun to lay out some predictions (that obviously won't come true) that could make it so. Here are mine: * Kotoyuki defeats Chiyomaru by tsuridashi * Takekaze wins an epic yotsu battle against Tochinoshin * Yoshikaze wins the yusho with a 14-0-1 record, his only loss being an absence the day after his bout with Hakuho. The absence is caused by an inability to find the dohyo due to his eyes being swollen shut from Hakuho's face slaps. * Terunofuji stays healthy for 15 bouts * No kinboshi are given up * Chiyomaru and Takarafuji are neck-and-neck in the yusho race on day 15. (for those unfamiliar with this expression see #21 here) Let's hear everyone else's predictions.

    From most points to least: Ichinojo Tochinoshin Terunofuji Asanoyama Kaisei Yoshikaze Chiyomaru Takarafuji Okinoumi

    From most points to least: Takekaze Aminishiki Hokutofuji Chiyomaru Tochinoshin MItakeumi Ichinojo Takarafuji Kotoyuki
  7. Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    Toyonoshima's on a roll lately. I think this Wally/Waldo would be a little easier to find than most...
  8. Banzuke for Kyushu 2017

    As mentioned above, a rikishi will be on the banzuke even if he announces he's not entering ahead of time (barring retirement). Osunaarashi should be able to make it back if he can stay healthy (and that's a big if), but I think for Gagamaru that ship has sailed (and sunk).
  9. NSFW GTB - Kyushu 2017

    Not at all confident about these, but here we go:
  10. career-high ranks

    A Terunofuji who stays healthy long-term becomes Yokozuna, but I don't think such a Terunofuji will ever be seen. I voted "Other" as I don't see any of them becoming Yokozuna, but it's still early (for some of them at least).
  11. Harumafuji Intai Speculation

    I continue to believe that Kakuryu will be first to go. His performance is the weakest of the three (discounting Kisenosato from this discussion as I don't expect his retirement soon and he's only been yokozuna for a short while) and he appears to be under the most pressure to get it together. Combine that with injury troubles that appear to be neverending and I expect him to retire sooner rather than later.

    Good to know that even in a wacky basho like this one I can count on certain rikishi to take their time on the dohyo. Thanks as always for running this!
  13. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2017

    This discussion will be moot when Goeido goes makekoshi next basho anyway.
