    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Since the tachi ai is about using one's power forward you can end up over your center of balance with ease, if there's nothing to catch you just fall over. The secret is keeping the head alligned with your knees as much as possible so the body weight will always be centralized. Like the great Konishiki said, today is so easy to henka that it seems the rikishi are asking for it.
  2. Crazy basho to play this game, i think it was more fun than when i got the yusho. Hopefully i will KK tomorrow, good luck to everyone on the yusho race and thank you Achiyama.

    I'm so happy with sumo right now, a bunch of new guys that are actually good. I'm sure we won't see much of the same rikishi getting the yusho in the next couple of years until another Yokozuna is established. Mitakeumi, Takayasu and Takakeisho are my hopes.

    No one talking about Tsurugisho? To me he is the standout performance of this basho, he looks pretty good technically, has a very strong lower body and got the brains too.

    Tsurugisho has become one of my favorites, he is very smart and always has the right answer for adversity.

    Terunofuji's health problems

    Roga actually would like to be introduced as russian, he spent a part of his childhood in mongolia but considere himself russian.
  7. I completly forgot to submit for day 15, still was a fun basho to play.

    I remember when him and Takakeisho came into makuuchi, people were saying that Takakeisho is the next Toyonoshima and Onosho is ozeki material. The times, they are changing.
  9. The ultimate underdog pick i have seen was from Yooho today, true gamble.

    Hakuho will kachiage and finish Mitakeumi with some sort of left hand pull down like he did Hokutofuji and Shodai.

    I don't think he can lift Kaisei's leg, with that injury his ashitori chances are even lower. I believe this is the first real skilled big man test for Enho.

    The world of women sumo.

    It's about time we look deeper into it, the world and the sumo world need to find a middle ground about women, for the times they have changed.

    The new mongolian generation

    Either he grows a strong mucle heavy back or he drops weight, staying at 200+kilos won't help now or never.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Yes Hakuho will still get some yusho here and there, just not as dominantly as before due to the factor of age, he's old and the prospects are young. It's a matter of time before Hakuho gets to fight the top rikishi while they are healthy and getting better by the day, i don't see anymore zensho for him.
