    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Based on these 2 days i would put my money on Goeido for the Yusho. Although Takayasu and Takakeisho are also looking good. Even Mita. Hakuho we never know. He might keep fighting like this and still get a 15-0... Tochinoshin is done as an Ozeki. As for Tamawashi, does he really want to be an Ozeki? At his age does he want to go through all the trouble and stress of being an ozeki? He has accomplished what he wanted in January and can now retire as a happy man.

    Preparations of the Y/O Haru 2019

    Agree. It is starting to look like one of those rikishi that stays in upper maegashira for years doing 9-6, 6-9 and doesn't really go anywhere.

    Preparations of the Y/O Haru 2019

    He does beat at least one Ozeki in every basho, so he might be taking something from it after all.

    Preparations of the Y/O Haru 2019

    Depends a bit of your Culture. As a South European I see no issue in using someone else's body to help exercising. Even in schools it is common to carry someone else as part of a gym class. Regarding the exercise itself, my question is more if it is actually beneficial what he is doing as the weight distribution is not 50 - 50. Unless what he was aiming to was to put more pressure in one side of his body.

    Some new rules..

    Not joking, but are they also requested to cut pubic hair as a rule? Understand that asian people have less body hair (legs, chest, etc) than europeans or americans, but those mawashis don't cover much and you can't see any hair.

    Preparations of the Y/O Haru 2019

    They need to change the question for all Y/O from is he planning to enter to is he planning to finish the basho.

    February special one day tournaments

    @Mitakeumi, you need to listen to Tochinoshin! He is doing exactly the same mistakes as Terunofuji did. Don't want to be wrong, but believe he also participate on this Fuji basho while injured.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2019

    He has been in upper maegashira for a while and always manages to beat at least one ozeki every time (ok, it's mostly Tochinoshin and he has never performed at ozeki level, since in the rank). He just needs to figure out how not to lose to lower ranks so often and then he can start putting double digits.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    He is out of Y / O to fight this basho, so no motivation any more. The only way he is ever going to win a yusho is if they put 15 people as Y / O on the banzuke.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    If you remove Hakuho from the picture and correct the gyoji's decision, the Y/O are now 1-14! Veeeery poor indeed.

    Terunofuji's health problems

    The problem was not Teru. The problem was that Koto lost to a M3, a M1 and 2 SW. If he wanted to go back to OZ, then he shouldn't lose to lower rankers. Don't undestand the blame on Teru. And btw, the main problem is that anyone could pull an henka on Koto due to his fault, even you and me, so we shouldn't blame anyone for doing it.

    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    Ok. Thanks to let me know. I was convinced that it was also controlled by the NSK.

    Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    If he is an official coach at Isegahama, shouldn't it appear in the JSA site (at least in English it doesn't)? http://www.sumo.or.jp/EnSumoDataSumoBeya/detail/3/
