  1. Ozeki demotion

    Since the number of rikishi in Makushita seems somewhat malleable, perhaps they could merely stop the drop at the bottom there in addition to the standard number? That way it affects no others too badly and they should just need 2-3 Basho to regain Sekitori status?

    I know, i'm just being a troll Neither makes sense to me, but I agree, surely you change stuff up when on a losing streak if that way inclined.
  3. Bearded gyoji/wrestlers

    There's no logic in not shaving whilst on a winning streak either...
  4. ENDURANCE TEAM AKI 17

    I had an undisclosed injury that meant I couldn't bring my brand of Sumo, I will endeavor to do better at the next Basho... Congrats to just_some_guy

    I for one am going to assume that those four asterisks stand for goat...
  6. Ozeki demotion

    It does seem somewhat harsh that he has done the really difficult part of 33 wins only to possibly have to do it again because of an injury not poor sumo. I know you could say the same about someone dropping from say m1 to the bottom of Juryo by being injured then missing 2 Basho, but they would then get to wrestle rikishi of lesser skill to get back up, whereas a demoted ozeki has to get 33 wins against the best of the best! Hope my point makes sense. Something doesn't sit right with it for me, some form of Kosho that couldn't be 'manipulated' would certainly make it fairer.
  7. Ozeki demotion

    Thanks I thought that was the case but couldn't find anything to say for certain, so I had to ask!
  8. Ozeki demotion

    This may be a daft question, but I couldn't find an answer to it: If Takayasu doesn't enter the November Basho, would he come back in January as Sekiwake requiring 10 wins or as a Kadoban Ozeki?

    I see where you are coming from, the opposite direction! I was thinking about min, you were talking max :)
  10. Basho Talk - Aki 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Why 3? I thought 2 Ozeki was all that had to be shown (be that Ozeki or Yokozuna-Ozeki) or am I getting the wrong end of the stick? Still leaves lowest rank as M18 mind you...
