    Preparations of the masses- July 2018

    His knees are inward and those type of knees need a lot of muscle to sustain the weight, as the years went by he lost all the muscle mass he had, now he is pushed out by a breeze. I would love to see a comeback by him but i don't think he can pull it off, the best choice is indeed to retire and focus on other things in life. (by the way what is "shin" "gi" and "tai" ?)

    Preparations of the masses- July 2018

    I don't think all the blame/fault should go to Isegehama, although it's their duty to teach and nurture the wrestlers it's also a fighter's duty to take care of their body and mind. Terunofuji got ruined only because he didn't take care of his health, in reality it is 50%-50% fault but we don't know if he was kind of forced to eat that much and that bad, what we know is that he was not forced to train poorly. In the end, "blame" is useless because it only makes you focus on the fault of a person and not the motive of what happened.

    Preparations of the masses- July 2018

    I agree, i went full fanboy on this one. I saw greatness in him but it is true he wasn't a great yet. We can blame the oyakata for not correcting him, but we can also blame Terunofuji for having no compromise with his health and not taking his place seriously. Tochinoshin seems like he has great work ethic so his case was more about recuperation, Terunofuji lacks the work ethic so his case is about rehabilitation. Indeed only a miracle will bring him back now.

    if he never comes back to his former self, may he be remebered as a great ozeki full of yokozuna potential.

    Preparations of the masses- July 2018

    In my dreams he would've focused more on getting more muscles and less fat so in about 5 more years as a ozeki he would get in good shape to be a yokozuna(this was how i thought back in 2015 when he was in the best shape of his life) but he took the complete other way around. Was that his fault or his oyakata'a fault ? We'll never know. What i know is that he was great wrestler ruined by bad habits and he's not the exception, something needs to change.

    How would that even be in question ? The guy just had surgery in both his knees, was super overweight and with diabetes. Terrible coaching.

    Rock bands...

    Just so the topic wont fade away from the main topic, some legit rock.

    Rock bands...

    Ibeyi, not a rock band but a very interesting one, "ibeyi" means twins in yoruba lenguage. They are french-cuban twin sisters with yoruba roots. A lot of yoruba folklore and metaphors are used, very beautiful music.

    Terunofuji Watch

    I would like to see it, he should be able to learn from his mistakes and his' oyakata miskates, in my mind that would make a good coach.

    Terunofuji Watch

    Not everyone can eat 10k calories a day, people need to learn about metabolism in sumo before more great rikishi like him get ruined by bad habits. He was one of my favorites untill i saw his muscles fade away and he went from a big strong rikishi to a weak obese guy. I'm sure it was all about his diet, lack of proper training and no injury rest. May the Terunofuji case be an exemple for rikishi to take care of their health, even if you reach a high rank you can't let yourself go.

    Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    His tachi-ai is of terrible form, he puts all of the pressure in his right knee which is placed in awkward position, it scared me everytime i see his knee buckle.
  13. Barely got a kachikoshi, that was close i wasn't mentally fit for this basho ... and a bit of cockyness

    Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Tamawashi at M1 is a serious threat, at least 10-5 record is expected but i think it will be 11-4 with a kinboshi.
  15. Mr Achi, when will the standings be updated ?
  16. Awarashi, somedays he's just another one but somedays he reminds me of Harumafuji.

    A debut yusho, has that ever happened before ? Bold prediction, next tourney i'm at sekiwake and the next, Ozeki.

    Election pics overview

    I really like Masurao as a rikishi, his run was amazing to see. He reminds me of a version of Ikioi that worked. Is he a good guy or one of the jerks ? I saw some videos of him as Oyakata and he looks fierce.
  19. Man for 1 second i thought i had picked Ryuden and lost the yusho on the last day
  20. I'm so scared that i'll get 0 points and McBurger is gonna get the yusho, so nervewrecking.

    Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    If Tochinoshin wins on day 14 he clinches the yusho right?
  22. The fact that Terunofuji is an underdog against Ikioi scares me.

    Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Baruto had the best sumo body ever, he was just that strong.

    New scandal-Kasugano Oyakata neglects to report ..

    Now that's a man, look at that impecable nose.
  25. Tenshinhan, Wamada and McBurger still have real chances to get the yusho, these last 3 days will be close and i think the bonus points will decide the winner.
