    Ex-Takanoyama emerges

    Interesting content in following interview (not on YouTube, available in Czech only, via the website of largest Czech sports news outlet). Seems like Takanoyama was quite under fire from his stable's okamisan after the death of his shisho, she blamed him for her husband's death. What is left unsaid but seemed quite obvious was that this pressure ultimately bore heavy influence on Takanoyama's decision to leave Japan for good. He also talked about his scandal with extramarital baby, said he planned on retiring to save face of his stable, but his shisho convinced him otherwise. Those two issues stood out the most to me from that interview (approx. 40mins long)
  4. Spotting 6 mistakes in my own entry after going through this entry again two days later does NOT predict very good result...I guess there's no use crying over spilt milk, though how exactly could I have made those mistakes goes beyond me. Seems like starting from bottom of banzuke with your entry only takes you so far (if you're a moron like me at least)

    Results GTB- Kyushu Basho 2021- 139 entries, 11 newbies

    There was a whole stretch that was difficult to place exactly, due to "where to put Asanoyama, Takayasu, Hoshoryu, Hokutofuji, Kotonowaka, Ishiura" question, that had direct influence on placement of Chiyoshoma and Terutsuyoshi, and also Shimanoumi and Kotoeko (and to a degree Chiyonokuni). Overpromote or overdemote? Not that many clear candidates to any one spot IMHO. But its likely thats just me overthinking and overcomplicating things.

    Aki 2021-GTB - RESULTS!! - 140 entries (22 newbies)

    34 points...well, for this mess of a banzuke I'll take it gladly (8-7 result with that ) I think Mitoryu will be busy inventing new expletives in several languages for next few days...I would be, if I were in his place

    Ichinojo in 2021 - has his inner fire been relit?

    Agreed, but this is a) fun, b) more probable than trying to win lottery, c) fun

    Ichinojo in 2021 - has his inner fire been relit?

    I second that, same opinion. I say 01/21 9-6, 03/21 7-8, 05/21 8-7, 07/21 6-9, 09/21 11-4, 11/21 7-8

    Non-K-November basho 2020 Discussion (spoiler space)

    Terunofuji was great today, I consider this win of Takayasu as a serious candidate for fight of the year, reeeally great sumo by both men full of pride and wishing to prove their Ozeki stints were deserved and distinguished (and not to be remembered by just the respective ends of those stints) And Tochinoshin, dear god! That was a MOTHER of all kachiage! He did lose the bout, but that impact might have been heard back in Beijing and Honolulu!

    Promotion/Demotion/Yusho Discussion Aki 2020

    Given his proportions, I don't think you can get rounder than this, currently he's looking almost perfectly spherical.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Asanoyama? I beg to differ. He seems to have discovered something nasty inside, needed to get that rope, but Takakeisho looked reeeeally strong after his first loss, and I'm quite sure he won't fall for henka a second time. As for Mitakeumi, he hardly looks like sanyaku material now. If anyone it's Endo who can throw in a wrench for Takakeisho.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    I think starting by gyoji's call is standard in amasumo, in Ozumo it's deliberately different. But it makes sense, much more than this mess.
