    Don't know if this is the best place to repot this, but... I've registered for the MAKUSHITA GAME and received an email with my picks (10 Nov at 21:37 CET), but can't see me in the standings.

    Drunken driving rikishi?

    It might be from the picture, but how can a sumo wrestler fit in that small car?

    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Can really Kise drop the basho without being forced to retire? In Sept he was comming from a long injury period, so his performance was considered as decent for the situation. In Nov what will be the justification as there doesn't seem to be any new injury. Plus, in trainning he was beating everybody, although trainning and basho are two very different thing.

    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    If he stays in Fukuoka then he can go and slap Ichinojo every day to wake him up. This way Ichi will be the stronghest yusho contender

    When did Goeido lose the title of King of Training to Mitakeumi?

    Takanohana resigns

    So Taka sent a second resignation letter and was also rejected (reasons above). What happens if he doesn't do a third one? Do they keep paying him? Are any consequences for Taka, like do they have a sort of pension scheme and he might lose it or something like that? If no conquences, why to bother? For an European person this is hard to understand. Most would send the first one and consider the case closed. If it wasn't accepted, too bad, but no second letter would be sent...

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Again, people bashing on Goeido for no reason, even after he has just finished second in this tournament, while the other two current Ozeki seem to be much superior and worth of the rank. Again, with the “Lucky Promotion”, “Lucky Yusho”, “Unworthy Ozeki” For the critics, here’s a quick comparison of the careers so far of the Ugly Duck and the Pretty Boy. Now tell me who has been the better one… Goeido: 1 Yusho 7 Jun-Yusho 11 Sansho In Sanyaku since May 2012 Ozeki run – Results against Y/O 03/2014: Y 1W/1L; O 2W/1L 05/2014: Y 1W/2L; O 1W/1L 07/2014: Y 1W/1L; O 1W/1L End result, 7 wins and 7 losses, including 2 wins against Hakuho still on his prime Tochinoshin: 1 Yusho 4 Jun-Yusho 11 Sansho From 2008 to 2017 an upper-maegashira that only had 1 positive record in the 9 times he was in the Sanyaku Ozeki run – Results against Y/O 01/2018: Y 0W/1L O 2W/0L 03/2018: Y 1W/0L O 0W/2L 05/2018: Y 1W/1L O 0W/0L End result, 4 wins and 4 losses. In conclusion, we have 2 rikishi that have been there for the same time (1 year difference), where one has been with the best for 6 years and has achieved his rank while the best were still the best, while the other has had a mediocre career except for 3 basho at a time where the best were not there anymore. Surprisingly, the latter is considered a better rikishi. Toshi might even become Yokozuna in near future, but as per today, no one with good judgment can say Goeido has been worse. As per Takayasu, his career is worse that these two, but he is a bit younger, so let's wait.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Do you mean the twist or swing (cannot find a better word) that bullfighters do? That is written with a "v" (Revolera). I have no knowledge of japanese to know a translation for that. Better just use "Olé", as that is known worldwide without a translation

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Is Takanoiwa going to lose his last 4 matches so he doesn't have to face Hakuho in next basho? Was looking foward for their first match since the karaoke session, but it doesn't seem it is going to happen in november. As for Ichinojo, he should have Hakuho slap him every two days to keep him awake during the all basho. Once again he seems to be getting his 8th win, but could easly have had 11 or more if it wasn't for the matches he is sleeping. It's very hard to be a fan....

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    From the 4 Y/O Kise has to face this was the easiest opponent. Good for him to have won and although i don't see he beating the other 3, he should still get his 8 wins. For Toshi, it doesn't start to look good at all. Maybe an OBSC will save him.

    Rikishi and oyakata CM activities

    According with wikipedia, this Georgia Coffee is from the USA's state of Georgia and not Georgia the country. Isn't this kind of cheating?

    Preparations of the masses- Aki 2018

    Let the guy show if he is Ozeki material in the real tournment, not in trainning. Before every basho, isn't Goeido the King of Trainning and then does what he does in every basho? One week to go for him to start answering to his critics... or prove them right.

    Terunofuji's health problems

    Anyone knows anything new about Teru? I know he is still out, but last news i can find is (above) from the 8th of July, where he was still in Hospital. Thanks

    At this stage no rising star would have enough time to be in a position to be choosen instead of Hakuho or even Kise (if by some miracle he his active by then). There are 12 bashos left until the Olimpics and in a weird scenario where Mitakeumi (picking him due to being the highest ranked at the moment) wins all of them, that would put him with 13 Y and being a Yok for less than 1y and half, against someone with 40Y and 13y as Yok. Even in this almost impossible scenario, i would see it very difficult for Hak to be left out. Also, this Olimpics discussion has been on for a few years and i don't understand why people are assuming that if Sumo will be part of the Opening Ceremony, only one Yok can participate and not the 3 (or whoever is Yok at the time). Apart from lightning the torch, all the rest can be done by more than one person.

    Natsu jungyo 2018

    What was the reason given for Takanoiwa's and others reprimand? Not being able to control the weather? Not being able to fly the airplane themselves? Not having a teleportation device? It seems like the NSK officials like to make a fool of themselves all the time
