    Enhou injured

    Considering how much sumo is based around loosening and lengthening the groin muscle its a little bit surprising. Maybe due to weight mismatch? I agree with you on slow healing though, I was continuously pulling my groin throughout college by trying to extend my stride going for contested balls in soccer. Finally healed when I started working and didn't do sports for 2 years.

    Sumo or not Sumo?

    Yeah, it seemed like there were people at the doors to the lower level for all makushita last basho.

    The new mongolian generation

    To be honest if you have a bad back I don't think dropping to 190kg is going to help all that much. To treat that I think you need some serious weight loss, probably enough to be incompatible with oosumo. It's just a bit of a dismal situation. I hope his back holds out long enough that he can retire in however many years, shed the weight and not have too many chronic issues.

    It's also pretty hard to do public announcements with some speaking in your ear and the substantial delay from the PA if you're not used to it. How many times per basho he actually has to explain something? Maybe just have him sit in an empty kokugikan reading iroha for a while or something.

    New NSK council with Sadaharu Oh

    Companies were approached with a similar demand for new hires a few years ago. Essentially with a dwindling working population having 50% of your able bodied population sitting at home not participating in the economy is a bad thing for the GDP. So it seems the request is spreading to orgs attached to ministries / board level positions.

    The young generation (japanese rikishi only)

    If you do one for really young guys - maybe Naya. I guess the hype train for him is already maximum speed anyway, but he's the only guy on this banzuke to be in Makushita and born after 2000. I don't think he's going to rip through Makushita-joi so easily but he could have a similar path to Takakeisho.

    Nobody seems to be an especially great candidate for the position lately, do they? The whole sanyaku seems to be a poisoned chalice. Any new rikishi reaching there suddenly picks up bad injuries. But maybe that's how it's always been.

    New sumo trophies

    Is there some large fee for these cups and why they are immediately cancelled? Seems spiteful otherwise.

    I would say Ichinojo not getting scheduled against Hakuho last basho was a much bigger sin than any of those 5 but then again I enjoyed both bashos.
