  1. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2018

    Although I posed the question, I do think Chiyotairyu will get the nod. I have a sneaking suspicion that if he had never been komosubi before, they may have kept Tamawashi in Sanyaku though. I guess we will never know... If Endo gets the nod I guess my theory gets blown out the water mind you.

    Aaah, I see! And thank you

    Please excuse my ignorance but what game is TH? I can't find my entries emails and can't figure it out!
  4. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Mitakeumi Tamawashi Takakeisho Onosho Hokutofuji Ichinojo Yoshikaze Tochinoshin Shodai Abi Ryuden Asanoyama Ura Enho Gagamaru Think that covers the speculation, but how many are realistic...
  5. Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2018

    I only got one hit for 1952 with this query, so I imagine beyond highly unlikely, but is it even possible do you think that Tamawashi could be demoted just to Komosubi?
  6. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    So more than likely one of them will mess their tachiai up and tumble to the floor! Seriously though, I hope it lives up to the epic bout it has the potential to be.
  7. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Horrible. Just watched NHK and Kinta, haven't read comments today yet but just horrible. Kakuryu, Mitakeumi and Tochinoshin (and Goeido) only positives on day 5. Also, Daiamami was robbed blind.
  8. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    It could of course be argued that it did indeed develop from a Shrove Tuesday tradition (which in turn may have Pagan history), but that's a discussion for another place... Not that I disagree with what you are saying, just something people may find interesting to research, I recommend the books of Ronald Hutton.

  13. Kakuryu Intai Speculation

    Same ultimatum? Come back in the next one and compete for the Yusho or else..?
  14. Kakuryu Intai Speculation

    I'll agree with you on that, I think if Hak doesn't complete. Kak could be in the running for the Yusho. On Kisenosato, we pretty much know he won't get his strength back, but if he sits out this basho and continues to develop (maybe a slightly different style, a la Hakuho) and get back to as good health as possible, would the following scenario be possible/likely: Kise performs below recent level and hovers around 10-5 for most basho, knicking the odd one for the next couple of years whilst the new crop begin and go on Ozeki runs, by the time a couple of them may be ready for the rope he can retire as a successful Yokozuna, Kakuryu will probably be gone by then as well and the new guard ushers in a new era of sumo? Wishful thinking? My predictions are normally wrong anyway

    Onosho is going either 7-8 or 8-7 I reckon, and i'm plumping for 7-8.
