    Takanohana resigns

    I would not say the general population of Japan are sumo fans. I accost almost everyone I eat lunch and dinner with about sumo, and it's rare that they know even all the yokozuna. On the toudai vs entertainers quiz show last week they showed the gyoji uniform and gunbai as a visual question to what profession is this type question. That nobody got it (out of like 30 people) until a hint swept in showing a banzuke speaks volumes. I like sumo and all, but let's not kid ourselves on the popularity.

    Takanohana resigns

    I seriously disagree that the general public views some conspiracy against takanohana. There might be some voices on Facebook or Twitter that are old school yokozuna takanohana fans but talking to typical Japanese about this I get a completely different impression. They don't even see it as some schism, just that the sumo association is some strange people and takanohana is one of them. My coworker put it succinctly - he's the weirdest one of a weird bunch. Honestly if takanohana and his lawyer don't even agree on recent events it's really less of a conspiracy and just he's a lot less intelligent than his outward fashion supposed. It's really too bad since he's clearly a capable technical coach / recruiter.

    Thank you for the game! I will try my best next time.

    Takanohana resigns

    Feel free to ignore, but considering a 100% true unmolested version of events will never see the light of day, speculation and opinionation will be nuts on this emotional topic, could we preemptively have a opinion/speculation thread and maybe have this thread dedicated to news and other quotes from the related honjins?

    Also, how could you deny Ozeki rank to someone getting only 3 or 4 losses per basho?

    The next banzuke is too stupid, can someone fix this?

    Thank you Fujishima Deputy Director from saving this forum a lot of heart burn.

    Trivia bits

    After the talk about full sanyaku clear outs after a basho, I wondered if there had ever been a basho to completely swap S and K, as in Sekiwake all get 7-8 or lucky 6-9 and all Komusubi get KK. There is one example I can find, Nagoya 1961 http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Banzuke.aspx?b=196107 Unfortunately (???) some maegashira guys also get promoted up into sanyaku (with a total of 4 guys at each rank) to stain it up a bit but I'm saying it counts.

    ISP Flabbergast..

    I don't think its just the algorithms, its also that Mitakeumi is super hyped right now and most people don't like Goeido. I mean we've had multiple threads where people want to demote KK ozeki mostly because they just don't like Goeido having 8-7, 9-6 records. Also, for my own picking, I do have an algo but like others your match choices are usually quite close to 50%. Since the way basho are the algo numbers have noise to +/- 2% or there abouts so I don't use them for ISP unless the match is really unbalanced.

    I wonder if they'll 'readjust' it at banzuke making time

    Trivia bits

    After day 7 in Juryo, 75% of the rikishi have 4-3 or 3-4 records, second only to 2017 Natsu with 79%. That ended with a 10-5 Nishikigi yusho and 7 9-6 "jun-yusho" rikishi.

    For whatever reason there is a completely different wiki on the repair. (There's actually 3 separate wiki pages on this injury...) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulnar_collateral_ligament_reconstruction

    I always wondered how you managed the copy and paste since everyone enters with basically a different format.

    Too bad about Goeido, otherwise east side of banzuke would be extremes.
